February month-in-review and reader appreciation

by lisacng / 24 comments / Read comments or add one!

Twenty six days of February over, just like that. I’m thinking about re-vamping these these month-in-review posts. Maybe offer them via a monthly newsletter subscription. Of course, that’d mean I’d have to take time to design such a newsletter….So, for now, I’m keeping them on the blog. Here are the popular posts of the month and some reader comments. Even if you don’t leave a comment, and we don’t give you a shout-out specifically, know that we appreciate your readership.

  • I was completely surprised when Shana asked Sarah what new blog she’s following and Sarah mentioned THIS BLOG and even put my button in the post. I’m so flattered!
  • I didn’t realize I was telling stories with my photos until Amy and Nilsa said so on my s*** post. Maybe that’s part of the photography style I’m trying to define this year. Thanks, ladies!
  • I used “s***” tongue-in-cheek when speaking of the snow and I looooved it when some of you used it in the comments too. Maybe I’m just juvenile :D.

  • Jo Koy March 1. Yeeessssss!
  • Alan’s sister’s baby shower. I’m so happy that J & O will have a cousin!
  • Is March going to be warmer????????

P.S. I looked back on my January-in-review post and didn’t work-out as regularly in February as much as I’d plan. Hope March is better!

Thanks for all of your support of expandng!

Any stand-out moments for you in February?
What are you looking forward to in March?

Good riddance February .. Hello March!! =D

I love your month in review posts. Let’s hope March does get warmer…is it even possible it could be colder? I don’t want to find out, that’s for sure. Will you be helping with the baby shower? How exciting for a new cousin!!!

Thanks, Amy! Yea, let’s not think about it and hope for the best ;). I am helping in some decorations, organizing games, and taking photos (though the last one is the job I made up b/c I want to make an album).

And just like that, February is over in a flash. March better be warmer. Or else I’m striking


Zi @ bumbleofjoy.com February 27, 2014 at 2:36 pm

I enjoy your month in reviews too! That is great that J and O are going to have a cousin, so exciting!


Amber February 27, 2014 at 3:30 pm

I am looking forward to WARMTH in March.

If you go with a newsletter, perhaps you could title it “Contractng”–since eliminating the month-in-review posts from the blog would be a slight contraction of its scope.

Yeah, that’s awful…I’m really tired today. Sorry!

Hey Rick, I appreciate your suggestion since you know how much I love puns and use-NG my last name to its full advantage :).


Stephanie February 27, 2014 at 6:31 pm

You took lots of great photos this month! February has simultaneously flown by and dragged on, if that makes any sense. I’m looking forward to some (hopefully) slightly drier weather next month and a weekend ski getaway at the end of March. :)


Lady Lilith February 27, 2014 at 9:32 pm

Wow. Some of the posts are amazing. Thank you so much for sharing them.


Tamara February 27, 2014 at 9:34 pm

I’m pretty sure that Sarah telling Shana about you is exactly how I found your blog! So I’m newish but that stands out for me.


Mommyproof February 27, 2014 at 11:32 pm

I love these posts; they remind me of ones I might have missed and are also just plain fun. xox


Jane Yoo February 28, 2014 at 9:09 am

I’m so looking forward to warmer weather. I hope March is it.. although I think the first few days is going to be cooold. Like today. 10 degrees..!?? I feel like January is always bad because it’s after all the celebrations and it’s just so cold, but for me, this year, February has been worse! Praying for spring to come fast.


Oh to Be a Muse February 28, 2014 at 12:34 pm

Oh, you definitely tell stories with your photos. That’s one of the reasons why I like visiting your blog so much. I’m ready for March!


Shana Norris March 1, 2014 at 9:19 am

Lisa, I’m so glad I found your blog via Sarah. I love seeing your photos, keeping up with your family, and learning more about photography. Here’s to a wonderful – much warmer – March!


Janine Huldie March 1, 2014 at 3:21 pm

I am honestly so glad I am getting to read and know you better through you winning ad space on my blog recently. So, I hope to be able to read and now share more with you in the weeks and months to come now. Wishing you a wonderful weekend now, too :)


lisacng March 4, 2014 at 2:43 pm

Hi Janine! So excited to win the giveaway. I usually don’t enter giveaways with ad space b/c the blogs never have anything to do with mine but I was so glad to see your blog on that particular giveaway. Can’t wait to get to know you better as well!

I love this post and would love to do this sometimes on my blog – but with the traveling, recipe testing & developing and all, I wish I can find the time to analyze my month-in-review! I hope March will be warmer, right now it is low 30s here in Portland, crazy right!? I’m actually boarding soon in two hours for Peru, it will be a long flight! I’m looking forward to blogging more in March, hehe!


Eva March 2, 2014 at 3:05 pm

February? I was so busy this February I barely blogged! lol I don’t think that will be the case for March. But I guess the few posts I made in February kind of summed up the whole month. lol

I hope March is warmer for you. I’m afraid to tell you what my kids did a few weeks ago (that required summer attire.) 😉


Joyce March 3, 2014 at 10:10 am

It’s snowing again! Hope you are enjoying another snowy day at home. :)


Sarah Alway March 3, 2014 at 7:53 pm

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe it’s already March! February just flew by for me, even though it was a short month and I should have expected it. I’ve got lots going on this month that I’m super excited about! :-)


Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout March 3, 2014 at 11:09 pm

These month in review posts are so good! And really, you are too modest — you totally deserved that shout-out I gave you!


Kelly March 5, 2014 at 5:57 am

Love reading these review posts – yay for a new cousin! February was so cold – really looking forward to March and hoping it’s warmer :)


Nina March 10, 2014 at 10:08 pm

Ooh you’re a Jo Koy fan too? I saw him here in LA at the Laugh Factory and he was by far the best in the line up. Enjoy!
