March 2019 Month-in-Review

I only thought real life would slow down for me in March.  But where one aspect slowed down, I was playing catch up everywhere else.  I did manage 18 posts, right in between the 21 in January and 15 in February.  I really would have preferred to get a couple more out.  I still have a backlog of EDSBT posts, especially my Game of Thrones season-by-season reviews.

My great Game of Thrones rewatch continues.  A big break at the beginning of the month and another big break at the end of the month put me behind, but I still have high hopes of finishing before the final season premieres on April 14.  If an HBO subscription on Hulu Live works out,[1] I plan on bringing back my weekly recap posts.

The really big news, though, is that I started a new Facebook group as an adjunct to Hillbilly Highways and its Facebook pageCheck it out!

We may have a steel guitar player on our hands

Stats are steady across both blogs.  I did see a pretty solid increase at Hillbilly Highways late in the month that I credit to the new Facebook group.

I finished six books, which isn’t bad, but I also somehow managed to acquire eight books (five are review copies).  I swear, though, somehow I am going to figure out how to whittle down my TBR.

[1] I successfully used an HBO subscription on SlingTV for season 7, but HBO ended their relationship with Sling.  So I’m cancelling our SlingTV subscription and adding Live and HBO to our Hulu subscription instead.  (Unfortunately that will cost us AMC.)
