My Relationship with Bookstagram

Thoughts HeaderHello lovely people! Today is a very hot day in Manchester (a true rarity) and I’m lucky enough to have a garden so I can sit out in the sun to read and write. We set up an Instagram for our blog around 18 months ago now and I am truly so glad we did. I personally really like Instagram the most out of all the social media platforms out there. I find it to be the most positive, which is heavily down to who you choose to follow, and I enjoy that is is so visual. I’ve been thinking a bit about bookstagram lately and wanted to write my thoughts down. Continue reading “My Relationship with Bookstagram”

Changing Reading Routines

Chat HeaderBefore lockdown, I had quite specific times that I read and it often wasn’t whilst I was at home. I had gotten into the habit of reading on my commute to and from work (or most times I used public transport), reading in cafes with friends and attempting to read before bed but this rarely ever happened. Lockdown has changed this quite a lot as the only place I can now read is at home! I always had a weird relationship with the word ‘productivity’ and what it means and I’ve had to again deal with it as I felt guilty reading at home – read on to see how I’ve adapted my reading routines!

Dealing With Blog Discouragement (BEDM)

Chat Header

The more that i’ve been involved in the blogger community and the longer i’ve been doing this, i’ve seen more and more blog discouragement from their owners. It’s gutting sometimes to hear your friends, and some times complete strangers on the internet feel bad about what they’re putting out there. I know i’ve definitely felt like that about my own posts time to time. I wanted to talk a little bit about blog discouragement and how i over came those feelings myself.

A Chat about The Perks of Being a Wallflower (BEDM)

=Chat HeaderI’ve been rereading The Perks of Being a Wallflower for this months book club (Thursday 30th May – come along if you wish!) and I’ve been really enjoying reading it for the third time. It’s different reading it now compared to when I first read it in my teens and then later at maybe 20. I’m now 24 and I still really appreciate it a lot.
