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 […]

The Selection Debacle:  A Timeless Reminder to Be Respectful to Each Other

The Selection Debacle: A Timeless Reminder to Be Respectful to Each Other

How many of you remember The Great Selection Debacle of 2012? I think all this probably happened before many folks in my corner started book blogging, but I’m sure there’s a handful of you who have heard about it.  I bring this up again not because of any particular incident, nor because I think people should burn everything written by Kiera Cass (I’ve read the first three Selection books twice).  I bring it up because I think it’s important to remember the effects of disrespecting one another’s place in this community. So gather ’round, loves.  Pull up a chair and get […]

Ten Books I Wish More People Were Talking About

Ten Books I Wish More People Were Talking About

I love to shout about the books I love. You may have noticed that pattern among book bloggers – you may love to do it yourself.  Some books – like The Night Circus or Ready Player One – everyone is talking about.  But then, there are books you think were fantastic, but people just aren’t talking about them as much as you think they deserve. For me, this encompasses most the books on my shelf.  If I own it, I probably love it, and want to talk about it.  How about you?  Here are some books I la-la-love, that I wish got more […]

A Dream of Adventure and Avolea

A Dream of Adventure and Avolea

My loves, I open today with a quote: “Once and again, I stray down and listen to the duet of the brook and wind, and watch the sunbeams creeping through the dark boughs, the gossamers glimmering here and there, and the ferns growing up in the shadowy nooks.”   Lucy Maud Montgomery was in love with her island home.  The sighs in the orchard and the gloriousness of summer peeking over green hills blossoms to life in her books.  The above excerpt from her journal is enough to take your breath away with only a hint of imagination required. I […]

Ten Television Shows I Am Obsessed With

Ten Television Shows I Am Obsessed With

Time for a break from books. 🙂 I love to read, I really do, but I do other things in my life sometimes!  I travel, I cook, I play with my cats… and like most people these days, I love me some TV.  The fall TV lineup is coming up!  I’m kicking myself because I still have episodes of shows I love kicking around from last season.  I’m not a binge watcher, but I think TV is the place to be these days.  I love the arching storylines and fun twenty minute sit-coms. I’m currently watching things on an off the […]

My Not-So-Famous Vlogging Life

My Not-So-Famous Vlogging Life

How many of y’all can lose hours and hours on YouTube? I think that YouTube is an amazing platform for creators to reach out to their fans and followers for a more face-to-face experience.  When I was in college, I really wanted to fit into the YouTube scene.  At that time, Vlogbrothers was really blowing up and YouTube was The Place To Be.  By the way – despite their success in other areas, Hank and John Green still upload regular, amazing content. My favorite channel (at the time) was Five Awesome Girls – and if you weren’t familiar with them, basically […]
