This is the last idea list that will be on a blog post but fear not, it is still going to be here. It will just have its own dedicated page which will be linked on the top menu. Then you can just click on that page to see the list each month. If you are worried about forgetting then please do follow me on socials as I will be adding reminders and links each month.
