What’s Happening in October? (vlog)


HELLOOOOO world. I’m feeling rather exuberant right now. :D Mostly because this is my 200th blog post. WHAT?!?!? Can you believe it???? I can’t. I don’t even remember how long I’ve been blogging because I’ve switched blog hosts like three times, but I’m pretty sure this is my third year. (And the dates on my first posts on this blog aren’t right…I copied them all over from my previous blog.)

Also, did ya’ll notice I cleaned up the blog? If not, go notice. I cleaned up the blog. *nodnod*. And my favorite feature–the new header!!! It’s not amazing but I really like it.

About this new vlog series:

Since I’m lazy and didn’t want to write all this out, I took inspiration from Abbiee’s last post and decided that 1) vlogs are awesome and 2) I love them.

So. Here is my What’s Happening in October video. Featuring a very disorganized ME, what’s going on in LIFE, how I’m almost done with another book, and how I’m getting ready for surgery round two.



In other exciting news, the sweet Livy Jarmusch interviewed me yesterday! You can watch our longgggg, awesome interview here, and be sure to subscribe to Livy and follow her blog!






What did you think? Should I make monthly looking-ahead videos a thing?

  1. Happy 200th post! YES, you should totally make monthly vlogs a thing!! I miss seeing your face and hearing your voice XD <3

    I love the idea of your Old River Road series being generational! But I totally understand how that's not your favorite. I have some historical ideas that I love, but the research o.o No thank you.

    I'm glad you've figured out when to schedule your next surgery. I'll be in prayer for that. <3 And I'm here for word fights so you can get the rest of that novel written before then!! I've loved how it's worked out to do that. It's been super fun and helpful for me :) And your chapters are such good rewards ;)

    And I've only made it about 15 minutes into your live video thing with Livy, but how fun is that?! And yes, left-handed is just as cool as you guys think it is xD

      Yes we are gonna get these books written!!!! I would not be anywhere close to as far into this book if it weren’t for our fights. ;) So grateful for you!!!!

      I know I got jipped out of the left-handed thing. -_-

    Great vlog Ivy. I love watching your vlogs. I like your posts and your vlogs equally, so. . . ;) Yes, please do these monthly vlogs! And if you don’t mind, keep us updated about your health. My family and I pray for you at home and at church. God bless you and help you have a minimal-pain, minimal-complications, quick-recovery surgery. <3
