A few months ago, A Purpose of Winged Dogs celebrated its Two Year Blogiversary. In my post, I promised to be a better and more consistent blogger. But that was a hard promise to keep. The truth is that I’ve felt stuck recently with this blog. I wanted to post about books and make this a book blog. But I just couldn’t seem to make that transition.
I posted sporadically. I posted about a bunch of random things, just to try it out. From this, I learned that I wanted to blog, but I didn’t want this to be the blog I did it on.
I decided to create a new blog.

Today marks a special day for me and for this blog. My 2 year blogiversary. I’ve officially been blogging for 2 years. 24 months. 730 days.
I know I’m going to sound like every other blogger on their blogiversary, but it’s true.
Blogging has changed my life.

I think it’s safe to say that Avengers: Endgame destroyed everyone who saw it. I also think that it’s safe to say that that was an understatement. Destroyed? More like broke your heart into a thousand small pieces and you are not okay and will never be again.
Whether or not you’ve already seen the movie or are planning to see it, Jo and I have come together to create a little guide for you about what your life will be like after you see Endgame. We’ve determined the eight stages that happen after you see the movie. Because there is a before and an after. This is a survival guide, a tip guide, a here’s what you need to know guide, and a can you relate to this guide.
I’ll be posting Stages 1-4 and Jo will be posting stages 5-8.
We’re trying to keep this as free of spoilers as we can.
So, let’s begin.

Well, that was quite the title. 🙂
Today, I’m popping back in from the hiatus I didn’t quite mean to take to interview the fabulous Jo. Why? Because Jo is starting a brand new blog.
The Lens & the Hard Drive (Jo’s old blog) is one of my favorites. It’s rants and ramblings and fangirling and awesomeness. At the same time, it’s also serious and thought provoking.
Pananaw is its successor. Pananaw is a Tagalog word meaning “insights” or “how one sees things”. This is my stop on her blog tour.
But before we get to the new blog with a gorgeous aesthetic, let’s meet the blogger.

Happy New Year, dear Winged Wonders! I’ve immensely enjoyed reading everyone’s wrap up posts. I think it’s time to do one of my own. 2018 was quite the year. It was a year of really finding myself. It also flew by, don’t you think?
2018 had so much good, but disappointment as well. Was it a bad year? No. Could it have been better? Yes. Looking back, I could only find major good moments. In almost every major bad moment, there was some good. I’m going to try to focus on the good in 2019.
I kind of stopped doing Chats With Wings halfway through the year. I’d like to start that back up again. Look out for December’s, coming soon. I also kind of stopped blogging halfway throughout the year. I wasn’t really sure what to post. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to post. That’s kind of what I meant by “finding myself”. Finding who I am, what I want to do, what’s important to me. I learned that I don’t like being put into a box. A single niche.
With that in mind, here are some of my highlights from the year. You might notice, they’re from multiple categories.

Merry Belated Christmas and Happy Almost New Year! The holidays just zoomed by this year. Actually, 2018 in general did.
Today, I’ll be showing y’all some of the things I got for Christmas. Of course, I am not at all trying to brag. I simply love reading these and they’re pretty fun to make.
I don’t like the word ‘haul’, so last year I coined the term ‘wreath’. It’s my collective noun for a group of presents.
Please excuse the…interesting photo quality. It shall be remedied soon. 😉
Well, here it is! My wreath of bookish presents.

It started with a frantic message to a group of blogging friends.
It went something like, “Guys, I need your help with a school project.” The school project in question was a recording of an original script with different people acting out different characters. A few members of the group volunteered, the project was made and posted.
But was that the end?
No, it was just the beginning.

About a week ago, I walked into French class. Per usual, there was something playing on the Promethean board. I looked at what it was and burst into laughter. There, was Peppa Pig and her friends, speaking French. I sat down and began to watch it. The rest of the students in our small class walked with their own giggles and “What the hecks?”
As I watched it, I realized something. I realized that I understood what was happening, but more importantly, what the characters were saying and what it meant. I was so excited. It may seem silly, to be excited at watching a show meant for kids years younger than I. But, it meant something.

What do you do when you want to buy something that doesn’t exist? You make it yourself, of course!
Clara from Clara and Co did just that. When she couldn’t find a subscription box for bloggers, a lightbulb went off inside of her head. She realized she could create one for bloggers and other content creators.

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.
