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 […]

June Wrap Up

June Wrap Up

June is already gone, and what an unexpected month it has been.  For me, June has been a month that has required patience – at work and at home, and with my reading.  As I write this, though, my house is peacefully quiet and it smells like barbecue pulled pork, so it important to find all the little things are cling to them lovingly. All in all, June has been a good month.  It went by so fast, but doesn’t it seem like they all do, by the time we hit the wrap up?   Y’all know how I keep […]

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.

March Wrap Up

March Wrap Up

My loves, I am exhausted.  February and March are always difficult months for me, with many thanks to the glorious New England weather.  I can only do so much with grey skies and snowstorms, you know?  This month’s wrap up is going to be brief – mostly just to say hi and let you know what’s been going on in my library these days and see how you all are doing! My haul was pretty low key this month, which is fine!  I didn’t go out and buy any of these except Children of Blood and Bone – all pre-orders, ARCs […]
