January Roundup – What a Stressful and Empowering Month!
Hi lovely, and welcome to my January Roundup 🙂
How did January 2019 treat you?
It was pretty darn difficult for me over here at StephanieCristi 🙁
Between TONS of schoolwork, the day job, Dobby’s new diagnosis, and some family health issues, it’s been difficult to stay on top of everything as well as I would have liked to.
It did however, show me how persistent and strong I can be 😉
And thankfully, there were some big upsides as well!
I’ve begun offering blog advertising on StephanieCristi for bloggers out there seeking to expand their reach!
I know! Mega exciting!
And on top of that, I was contacted by a company seeking to partner up for sponsored posts – so of course I’m absolutely thrilled at this new venture into monetizing StephanieCristi!
Don’t worry though – giving you worthy content is still my top priority so I won’t be accepting any posts I don’t think will be useful to you 🙂
Anyway, let’s get started with the month’s new content. 🙂
Table of Contents
January Roundup – Health
The winter and holiday months can be mega tough for lots of people, so in case you’re struggling too, I’ve posted an article including tips for battling loneliness.
I also shared a post on why I chose the Erin Condren Life Planner for keeping me organized and feeling in control.
January Roundup – Travel
Of course, I couldn’t go through a whole January roundup without including some travel content!
Since I got to fly back home to Miami to see family and dogsit my childhood pup, I’ve published a guide on conquering the Miami weather from the point of view of a local.
I’ve also published a guide on what you should pack in your carry-on… because I know how tricky it can be to keep packing light and easy-to-manage.
And last but not least, I’ve created a new way for you to explore my travel posts thanks to an amazing plugin I’ve recently discovered! You can check out these nifty little surprises here for my travels in California and here for world travel.
January Roundup – Blogging
To kick off the new year being as helpful as I can be, I’ve published my list of top 40 blogging tips for beginners! 🙂
And because that wasn’t enough, I also shared 9 foolproof reasons to promote your blog (and there’s still some slots available to get some free promotion with me!) 🙂
January Roundup – Pets
I mentioned it in passing earlier but Dobby was diagnosed with a luxating patella early this month – I know, what a terrible way to start a new year!
So in order to help out other dog moms out there, I’m sharing everything I’ve learned about a luxating patella in dogs. Hopefully, it comes in handy if you ever get the sad news – and I hope you never do!
And in case you’re considering bringing a kitty home, I’ve written up a guide on my experience living with cats.
January Roundup – Going Back to School
Since I’ve recently gone back to school for a cybersecurity program, I decided to share my top tips for going back to school as an adult. After all, adult-leaning is significantly different from full-time student learning… it’s SO much more difficult!

After all, I couldn’t let this January roundup go by without setting some new years resolutions for myself, right?
