(It will also help me sell my own work so there is that part of why I would like to upgrade.)

was so ecstatic about how I have been able to be so productive this winter. My seasonal component has not been an issue (SAD), but the past few days I could feel the weather changing my mood. It has been rainy here the last couple days, and while I often feel good when it rains it not the case at this moment.
I don’t often talk about the time just before I made the decision to write this blog. I was good with my mental health, but at the same time, I … Continue reading Why This Blog Means the World to me
