Archives For monthly review

The first month of 2014 has closed it’s final page. I can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by.

Michigan was hit with the Snowpocalypse where we received a ton of snow. Looking out of certain windows, you can’t see anything but the snow. It’s crazy.

How about you? How’s the weather and things going with you and your family?

1. Catalyst East 2013 LeCrae Moore Notes – By far and away the most visited post this month. And it happened because of Twitter. LeCrae Moore retweeted the post to his audience and it took off like wildfire. Never underestimate the power of social media.

Wow, I sit here wondering where the month has gone. Shocked and amazed that October has ended and November is beginning.

Halloween was a bit of a disappointment. I was hoping we’d be able to pass out candy to the trick or treaters but the rain seemed to held them back from knocking on our doors. When we realized this, we chose to go to the theater and see the hilarious movie Despicable Me 2. This movie had my wife laughing throughout the whole film. Definitely go see, or rent, it if you’re looking for a good laugh.

1. 10 Facts You Should Know About Modern Day Slavery – Modern day slavery has to be an important topic. This post has been in the top spot the past couple of months. Lets not forget there are still slaves in the land.

We’re three-quarters of the way through 2013. The end of the year is quickly approaching.

Have you been moving towards your goals and accomplishing the things you wanted to this year?

Wordle September 2013

Honestly, I’ve been approaching my goals slower than I wanted to. My eBook should have been released by now. I should have more followers than I do. I should feel more accomplished than I do.

Sitting here, I’m shrugging my shoulders and telling myself: It’s okay. And it is. We are where we are. Once we realize this, we can move on.

So, regardless of what you’ve accomplished or what you’ve knocked off your to-do list, you can move forward today.

With that behind us, let’s take a look at the top blog posts, top commenters, and site statistics. Heck, I’ll even through in some news!
