After Taking A Step Back…

It was the end of July, a few days before my family was to leave for vacation. I was pondering what to post. My mind was drawing a blank. I felt this pressure to post certain things and make my blog a certain way.

I stepped away from my computer, grabbed a piece of paper and wrote out my honest thoughts about blogging. I realized I didn’t love blogging. I had loved it when I started, but my love had fizzled out.

At first, I was shocked. I knew I didn’t love it, but I didn’t want to stop.

Bookworms disagree on all sorts of things, whether it be book ratings or bookmarks vs dog ears. But, there is one thing we all agree on. And that is the fact that being a bookworm comes with many struggles.

Thoughts On Niches (Chats With Rose #2)

Add heading (2)

I always thought that I didn’t need a niche.

I was truly a niche naysayer, posting about anything and everything. But then, I realized that you guys really enjoyed when I posted about reading and writing. And I loved posting about those things too.

Those two things were why I had created my blog in the first place. So, I wondered for a while why I got away from those topics. Maybe it was because I read blogs that focused on other things, like lifestyle. Maybe it was because there were other things that I was more into. But, either way, I had stopped posting about those things.

In January, I decided to go full swing back into book blogging. That didn’t exactly happen though. My blog was as nicheless as ever. And I knew it was time to really think about it.

How To Catch Up on Your Camp NaNo Goal

img_2397

Hey, guys! Some of you might know that I took up the Camp NaNoWriMo challenge in April. I decided to take it up again this July. I was really excited to finally write the novel that I planned in April.

But, when July came, I found myself doing other things. There were more important things that came up, like seeing family. I also went on a five day vacation.

This meant that overall, I was not writing and therefore behind on my goal. But, I know many other people are also struggling with this. So, I decided to create a little guide to help us both out.

Let’s get started!

A Year of Winged Dogs

 

Blogiversary!

Dear Reader,

On this day, 2017, an excited Rose ran downstairs. Today was to be the day that she started her blog. She and her friend had been excitedly discussing creating blogs as a summer project during lunch. Her friend had started hers as soon as school got out. About a week later, it was Rose’s turn.

She opened up her laptop and went to the WordPress home page. This was it, the moment she had been waiting for. Her mom by her side, she began to register. But, what was to be the name?

For weeks now, she had mentally gone over what seemed like hundreds of blog name choices. But she fittingly found the one in a book.

The book was Blueberry Pancakes Forever by Angelica Banks, a recent library read. There it was, sitting on the page, “A purpose of winged dogs.” The name was the collective noun (what you call a group of things) for a group of winged dogs. It was creative and represented what she had wanted to blog about to a “t”. Rose had found her blog name.
