Another Five of My Favorite Book Bloggers

Another Five of My Favorite Book Bloggers

Last August, I highlighted five of my favorite book bloggers.  At the time, I picked five because I wanted to keep the post at a reasonable length.  But honestly?  There’s no WAY I could only pick five!  I’ve had this follow up post sitting in the trenches for a while, and I think it’s time to pull it out. Here’s another five of my favorite book bloggers who, yes, you absolutely must follow. Dani Perspective of a Writer Dani is one of those people I follow on multiple platforms, and she absolutely does NOT disappoint.  First of all, aesthetically this […]

2019 Blogging Goals

2019 Blogging Goals

Every year around this time, I like to think about my previous year on the blog and what I’d like to do in the future.  2019 is going to be another year of change and busyness for me – we’re moving again so a good deal of the spring is going to be tied up in packing boxes and unpacking boxes.  Add to that certain career expectations I have been expertly avoiding, and there’s a few different aspects of my life that I just don’t know right now.  And that is TERRIFYING for me.  I’m the type of person who likes to […]

The Stats Problem

The Stats Problem

I am one of those bloggers that can’t stop looking at her stats. Really.  When I click to get to my dashboard, I go though the main site and click the bar graph for stats on my WordPress top bar to get to the backend stuff.  Every single time I visit my blog, whether to reply to comments, update something behind the scenes, or write a new post… I look at my stats. It’s a terrible habit, but one I’m not alone in doing. I think that our obsession with statistics directly correlates with our cultural need to define our success […]

How I Blog, What I Blog, and When I Blog

How I Blog, What I Blog, and When I Blog

Blogging is a lot of responsibility, and in order to keep up with scheduling posts and be consistent, bloggers need a method.  I don’t know many who just pop on and say “I feel like writing a post today!”.  There’s a plan – from how often we post to what we post and the very structure of our posts. I’ve been teasing that I would do a post like this for an eternity.  I love reading about the different ways bloggers organize themselves, just in case I can make an improvement to my system.  There’s a few different aspect organizing my […]

The Art of Being Genuine on My Blog

The Art of Being Genuine on My Blog

One of the challenges most bloggers are faced it throughout their blogging career is the presentation of their blog.  Your blog layout is your face to your readers, and your content bares your soul.  For any of my followers who joined this merry band of renegades last spring, you’ll know I’ve gone through three or four layout changes in that time.  It was so bad that I actually made it one of my 2018 goals not to change my layout again.  And I’ve been good, for the most part. Making sure your blog is everything you want it to be is […]

Happy New Years!  Blog Resolutions.

Happy New Years! Blog Resolutions.

Here’s it is again, by beautiful monsters!  That time of year where we look at the bright, sparkly future and dream of everything we could be, everything we want to be, and resolve that we will become that bright better person. Small confession?  I loathe New Years Resolutions.  I feel like I’m seeing myself up to fail.  Besides, who needs to wait until New Years to be a better person?  Still, it feels like a fresh page.  A new start. A “maybe I can do something for a full twelve months!” moment.  So while I may not promise to change my […]
