December 2015 | Wrap-Up

DECSo its the end of 2015. I can’t believe the year is already done and over. I loved participating in #readwomen for december and loved seeing all the posts and updates from others. I would like to thank all of my followers and friends I have made this year in the book community. I love that even though I was disconnected from the book community I still felt the love and was welcomed back with open arms. I have learned so much and have gotten a greater passion and love for books and reading! So here is to an amazing 2016!

January Wrap-Up

DEC-2

 

I have had an amazing start to the new year. This has already been the best month on my blog since I have started it (stats-wise! So thank you everyone for looking at my crazy nonsensical blog) This month was packed full of stuff and I didnt realize just how much until I was making up this post. I spent a lot of time reading (more than I thought) and even more time preparing my blog for my small hiatus. Although I was trying to limit the books I read this month so I wouldn’t be starting a series I couldn’t continue while away, but I am really excited to get to some of my ebooks. Many I have gotten for my trip and haven’t allowed myself to read them yet. It should be an interesting next couple months and I really hope I will have time to read and find somewhere to work on my blog. (Thank goodness for the wordpress app!)FullSizeRender

Guest Posting | Discussion

ThoughtsSo I was trying to think of something to post today and thought I would switch it up and do a discussion post. If you follow my blog you might have seen that I have been hinting to the fact that I might not be around a lot in the coming months and will be on a bit of an unfortunate hiatus from my blog (more to come on this topic in the next few weeks). With that being said I have been trying to schedule out posts and pre-plan for some of the time that I will away. Now if you blog you know how much of a task this is and I have found myself struggling a little.

This has led me to thinking about a couple different things. The thought of having a co-blogger has been thrown around a little, but I really don’t want to have to share my blog. I started this blog for myself and really want to keep it to be my own thing. But the problem that has presented itself is that I love interacting with other bloggers and highly enjoy all the other things that come along with having a blog (new friends, recommendations,learning new things etc) I am so thankful for all that has come from my blog and really appreciate everyone’s love. I am just afraid that all I have worked so hard this past year to create will disappear because of my current situation. That has caused me to play around with the idea of having some guest posting throughout my time away.

I really wanted to know peoples opinions about this. I know I have been doing a book blogger shout-out feature (which I really enjoy and love to see others blogging styles and creative posts!) but I am wondering if it would be weird to have post from other people on my blog instead of post from me. (It is also a bit of an internal struggle going along with what I said early about this being my own blog I created for myself and I don’t want to lose my personality etc. in my blog) The other problem I struggle with this is finding people that are willing to create and give me posts within the next month that might not be posted until a few months from now.

Basically I just need some outside advice because I am kind of stuck with what to do.  So any advice or suggestions you have to offer would be greatly appreciated or any ideas for blog posts I can do!

December Wrap-Up

DEC So its the end of 2014. I can’t believe the year is already done and over. It has been a pretty successful year for myself. I also become an affiliate of amazon this month so you should use the amazon link on my recent book review to purchase books! (shameless plug!) I have surpassed my goodreads reading goals and completed half of my bookish bucket list I created this year. I would like to thank all of my followers and friends I have made this year in the book community. I have learned so much and have gotten a greater passion and love for books and reading! So here is to an amazing 2015!
