2 Years of Winged Dogs

Copy of Blogiversary!.jpg

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.

That’s crazy.

I know I’m going to sound like every other blogger on their blogiversary, but it’s true.

11 Questions With Jo-Featuring Panic! At The Disco, Peanuts, and Pananaw

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.

(A Very Late) Chats With Wings-February 2019

 

Chats With Wings

Hello, guys! It’s been a while. I’m fully aware that it’s the middle of March (Where has the time gone?), but I figured I should wrap up February anyway. My existence in the blogosphere has basically been 0. My goal for the rest of March is to post at least once a week. 🙂

Right now, there’s just a lot going on. I’m trying to get better at managing my time, but I should be back in full swing on this blog by Summer. Well, now that that’s out the way, let’s wrap up February!

Chats With Wings-January 2019

Chats With Wings

Happy February, guys! As you can see, I thought it was high time to bring back my monthly recaps. They were always my favorite posts to write, but alas, I haven’t written one since June.

January seemed like a really long month, but at the same time, not really? A lot of things happened, including starting a new year! So, let’s begin recapping it.

Introducing….The Blogger Box!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Chats With Wings-April 2018

 

Chats With Wings

Yes, that is the proper title. I am doing last month’s forgotten Chats With Wings mere days before I need to work on my May Chat. This is going to be a rather shortened chat because not all of the categories will be found. For example, I will not have any May goals because, well, May is over in three days. 🙂

Let’s recap April!
