New Year (poem)

New Year

A new year
A clean slate
But let’s be real
Expect the same

Resolutions are nice
But mostly for show
You’re the same
Everyone knows

But it’s a new year
That much I see
So hey
Here’s to 2015

Hey guys, today’s my birthday! I know, I know. You can’t wait to wish me a happy birthday and tell me how awesome I am in the comments. 😉 I’m turning 23 today, and it was a rather nice year. Now read my poem.


 My Birthday

My birthday’s today
You should know
Cause we’re friends
I think so

I have no plans
Or much to do
But sit here
And talk to you

I’ll get some texts
And phone calls too
That’s all nice
But I’m no fool

No one cares
Nor should they
Because after all
It’s just a day

I Don’t Have a Catchy Title for my November Recap

November has a couple of holidays, the start of the holiday shopping season, and a new second best month of the year for your favorite blog! Yep. It’s kind of a big deal because toward the end of the month I noticed a lot less traffic right around the Thanksgiving holiday. And I STILL managed to best last month by a healthy margin. Now let’s get into some stats. The previous record will be in parenthesis.

Posts: 29 (31)

Likes: 417 (584) I’m fully convinced this record will never fall.

Followers: 2005 (1866)

Not much to say here. I had more unique visitors in November than any previous month, but still just barely fell short of a new record for overall site views. I’m just going to start considering the month of May as my blogging golden age. Cause nothing I’ve done since then has been able to match it. Oh well. I’m content with where I am right now. Now on to some posts.

So that’s it. The surprise of the month was the top post. I usually don’t check to see what’s leading the way until I write my recap and this one just narrowly had more views than one other.

Two things to tell y’all about December. First, I’m going to stop posting poems on the weekends. I feel like y’all don’t see them that way. So I’m just going to mix them in with my regular posts during the week. Second, I’m going to test out a new posting time of the day. I’ve tried posting at midnight before and it didn’t really do anything for me. But ever since I began blogging daily I’ve always posted at 9:40 a.m. Central time. And it’s worked. But now I’m going to try the afternoon. Why? I don’t know. Maybe I’m greedy and just want as many people to read my posts as possible. But really, who doesn’t want that?

So here’s to December!

And instead of reading this post on your WordPress app, read it on your computer or browser on your phone! Why? Cause it’s snowing on Write me a Book, John! It will be for the next month or so.

The Mockingjay (poem)

This is my third straight post that has something to do with my favorite series. Yeah. I’m a little obsessed. Oh well!

The Mockingjay

Every cause
Needs a face
We have ours
The Mockingjay

Katniss is ready
To fight the fight
That needs to happen
To make things right

She’s the leader
Who we need
To lead us
To ultimate victory
