I’ve been working harder and harder recently on creating a blogging routine that works for me. I had set it as one of my goals for the summer to not only find a blogging process that works for me but to also get on a regular posting schedule.
While I haven’t entirely been able to do the latter just yet (there are still weeks where I’m not posting according to my regular Tuesday-Friday schedule), I have definitely been able to find a blogging routine! So I thought I would share a little bit of what’s happening behind the scenes and share my blogging process! View Post
After a poll I recently did on my Twitter account, I realized that you wanted me to write more book-related posts, and I’m really happy about that since I love books! As you know, I’m a huge bookworm and am always on the hunt for my next favorite read.
But I know not everyone loves reading as much as I do. It can be hard for people to find a book that’s not too heavy, with a limpid style and an addicting story. And you know what genre reminded me of that? Young Adult. This genre also happens to be one of my favorites, exactly for the reasons stated above! I love dystopian stories and fantasy, and this is what YA normally offers.
In that state of mind, I have decided to list ten of my favorite YA series, in the hope that I might be able to recommend you something new that you might like!
Rewind back to June of 2014…
I had just graduated high school and had my sights set on a marketing major (my parent’s ideas and recommendation, not mine) at a school that wasn’t really known for its business. All I ever wanted to do was make an impression and fit in easily with my peers. So there I was, age eighteen, afraid, nervous and extremely shy (as a result of years of torturous self-destruction with help from others at school).
But I still wanted to change the way I was looked at in high school when I went to my new school. I concentrated my mindset to just be outgoing and extremely talkative at university; but when the time came around in August I was back in the same spot. I found myself falling back into the hole I had tried to come out of. I tried many outlets to find friends, but nothing seemed to lean in my favor.
After I looked around my dorm, searched in my classes, and joined a sports club, I was still not having any success in the friend department (or educational department, for that matter). I found myself hating school, detesting my classes, and I ended up loathing who I had become again. Disliking yourself is not really a way to go through life, but I was trying my best to just make it though the first semester of college. View Post
Blogging is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I mean, not only did it help me get more organized, but it also allows me to be more creative and improve my writing. But the most amazing part it is that I made friends with people from all over the world.
It’s no secret that I’m a very shy person. I don’t make friends easily and it’s hard for me to come out of my comfort zone.
Blogging could be a very lonely activity. I mean, you’re sitting behind your computer, writing posts. But it’s so much more than that. Despite what people might think, blogging is actually all about networking. You have to get yourself (and your blog) out there if you want to get your blog seen and read. It can be very hard at first, but for me, networking is one of the best parts of blogging! Not only because it increases my traffic, but also because I get to meet new people all the time and develop new friendships.
It took me a while to figure how crucial networking is. It can be a bit overwhelming sometimes, which is why today I’m giving you my advice on how to network with other bloggers! View Post
I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing I like better than getting lost in a good book. But during the semester, I don’t have much time to do so. Between classes, studying and work, that doesn’t leave much time for reading.
But with summer right at our doors, we finally have more time to read! That’s why I decided to team up with a bunch of bloggers to share what our favorite summer reads are! I personally prefer reading contemporaries and NA during the summer as they are usually lighter reads, so this is what you’ll mostly find in this list. I made a list of my favorite books of the summer last year, if you’re looking for other recommendations! I tried to choose books that were different from the ones I shared last year. View Post
