Welcome to my January 2021 recap! We’ve made it through the first month of 2021 which honestly deserves a pat on the back after everything we gone through at the start of this year in the US. But we’re not here to talk about that right now. January 2021 had some new things for the blog and I’d really like to showcase that today! With the first week of February starting, let’s take a look at the month of January here on A Geeky Gal!
Happy New Year, geeks! 2020 was hard year for all of us, and I know I’m not alone in saying that I hope 2021 is kinder and that I’m so glad 2020 is over. We’re not out of the woods yet with the pandemic, and many of us are still struggling, but I’m choosing to look forward to what else 2021 will (hopefully) give us. I hope you will too despite the hand we’ve been dealt.
In the last few years, there has been immense growth on my blog. This past year has been steady with a slight uptick in views and visitors compared to the year before last. I even gained about 300 followers! My YouTube channel also passed 150 subscribers! For someone who blogs and makes videos as a creative outlet and for fun, I feel very happy with the growth I’ve seen. I’ve had to think long and hard about what I want to focus on this year and how 2020 has shaped my future personal and blog resolutions. So let’s look at those 2021 resolutions now.
Last year I did my first ever yearly recap! I noticed many of you really enjoyed it so I wanted to bring it back for 2020 too! As always, there are some highlighted posts that I loved writing in 2020 as well as a few of my favorite and most viewed YouTube channel videos from this year! I included at least two top posts for each month of 2020 as I did take a couple of mental health breaks during the year. Some months saw more views than others so I included the most viewed and popular posts for those months.
Looking back at all of these posts fills me with so much gratitude and happiness despite how crummy 2020 was, and I am very much looking forward to 2021 with all of you! Let’s make next year even better!
I can’t even remember the last time I wrote a book review for my blog (if ever?). After reading The Rise of Kyoshi though, I knew I needed to take to the blog for my honest thoughts about a book based upon one of the most renowned Avatars in the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra universe. We aren’t presented with the strong and powerful Kyoshi that is revered during Avatar, the Last Airbender. We are forced back in time to the very beginning of Kyoshi’s journey before she even knows that she is the Avatar, serving and befriending the false Avatar Yun. We travel with her on a heartbreaking journey as she discovers her past, her powers, and her true self.
