I am participating in the 28 Day Blog Challenge that is being hosted by Katy Widrick. I have been thinking about what I want to do this month to improve and grow my blog. It is pretty easy to come up with things to work on since I am just getting started!

Below is my list of items that I will be tackling this month. It is based off the list of suggestions provided by the 28 Day Blog Challenge. This is going to be fun!
