A NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER 2021 BLOGGING REWIND: END OF THE YEAR WRAP UP. Looking at the final two months of Finding Wonderland in 2021! © Rissi JC


December 31, 2021 2 Comments

Hello, happy people and readers. Welcome back to Finding Wonderland! As always, I’m so glad to have you drop by and if this is your first visit, hi. Thanks for hanging out. For months now, we’ve been able to publish something new daily around here, and hope we’re doing a good job publishing a variety of things so that we don’t have something the same every day. Instead of the usual monthly wrap up, I’ve been doing a two-month mingle of things, which leads to today’s November and December 2021 blogging rewind.


Here we are, bidding adieu to all TWELVE (!!!) months of 2021! Cannot believe this, but regardless, let’s do this thing – all before we ring in 2022. #Help



1: Changing. In this upcoming year, I foresee changes for my spaces. I’m not sure WHAT these will look like, but given my opinions and feelings, I know some sort of change needs to happen. I’m not sure if this will be in month one or two or three, but I know something has to change. I have to approach things differently because of my opinion (namely on our fourth point here) and while some of these things may “feel” a bit painful at the onset, it’s necessary. What are your plans for your websites in 2022? Will you approach anything differently or do you feel good about where things are?

2: Christmas Movies. Despite not watching a ton of these in comparison, I still did see plenty and one of my most favorites of the ones I watched is An Unexpected Christmas. It’s so good, mainly because of its fabulous leads.

3: Gratitude. As this is not just an end of the month wrap up, but also an end of the year, I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for anyway who shows this space love and support. I’m extremely grateful. This isn’t a simple thing, and the time spent on it is endless, but anytime I take to chat with you guys (which is always a goal to be better at) or to see that you took the time to read something here or something is helpful is what makes me so thankful that anyone spends any time here. So thank you to those who give this space some of their time. Thank you.

4: Music. I’m all about discovering new music. Last rewind we talked about ‘Baytown’ from Raelynn, this time I discovered singles ‘Crazier Things’ (I weirdly like it) and just this last week I rediscovered the Point of Grace Christmas song ‘The Giver and the Gift.’ I used to listen to their music all the time, so listening to their songs again gives me music throwbacks. This is one song that I think the lyrics are way better than the actual song arrangement and music. Of course, I’ve also listen to Swift’s ‘Red’ (Taylor’s Version) re-release a lot as well.

5: Social Media. I’ve talked about this a lot, so I won’t get into detail here, but social media is something I struggle so much with. On one hand because I treat part of this as “work,” I “need” social media to signal where the content is (trust me I notice a DROP when I don’t), and on the other hand I don’t “need” social media in my life. I don’t treat social media in a personal way (meaning I share much personal) and I love that. But as a result I’m stuck in this really unsettling and weird place on how I’ll treat social media in the new year. I plan to write on it, so I do have this in the works, but do you have anything that helps you?
