Winter Wonderland

Snow didn’t come as often in the town I grew up in. Of course, when I was a child, there seemed to be snow (and snow days) all the time. One memorable year, we left school for Christmas break in December and didn’t come back to school until February because of all the snow. My […]

New Books.

One thing that I’ve always found interesting about book blogs and BookTube and even bookstagram is the people always seem to know what books are getting published in the next year. In the very least, they know what books are coming out in the next month. I don’t have that kind of mentality. Sometimes, if […]

Sporadic

Sometimes I wonder why I keep writing blog posts. My inspiration is sporadic and unfair. The platform changes and it takes some time getting used to. By the time I get the hang of it they change it to something that much more challenging and mind boggling. It’s a wonder I hung around at all. […]

Work at home.

Yesterday was a lazy day for me. I was able to get some house chores done including getting the kitchen straightened out. It looks so open and nice now that we don’t have a countertop microwave anymore and I can move some bulky items into the corner where it used to be. I even swept […]

The Holidays and Writing Challenges

Apparently a couple bloggers I follow are doing blogmas this December. I’ve heard of vlogmas but not blogmas. For those in the dark, you either blog or vlog for the month of December. I don’t know how you come up with the topics but people seem to enjoy it. I haven’t read too many blog […]

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” Aristotle The biggest struggle for me as a writer is finding topics to write about. I get an idea, sit down and begin to write, only to tear up the page that I was writing on and stare at the blank page for another ten minutes or […]

I’m On Bloglovin’!

I decided that I needed to add my blog to the Bloglovin’ website. There is a ton of blogs on there and a lot of people use it to follow different blogs on different platforms, so I might as well join the crowd. I’ll be adding a follow button here soon so everyone can have […]

I dislike the new wordpress post editor…

I know I’m complaining, but I feel like I’m not the only one who has so much struggle. In fact, I read another blog post with the person saying s/he was having the same problems. I’d link the post here, but I can’t remember where I read it now. WordPress forced me to change to […]

The Books I Read (as a Child)

One of the most common journal prompts for book lovers isĀ “What is your favorite book as a child?” I read a whole lot more growing up than I do now, which is ironic. Usually it’s when you’re a child people try to get them to read then only when you’re an adult you read more. […]
