Why hello there. How do I start these things, again? Ahem. I would like to talk to you about blogging and relationships. As you may or may not know, in my youth, I was a regular blogger. (And by "in my youth" I mean about 3 years ago, and by "regular" I mean on-the-regular as… Continue reading Did my relationship replace my blog?? (and P.S. I got engaged!)
OHEMGEE, HI, BLOG! It's so good to see you! It's been a while. Like, it's snowing on my blog now. I wanted to update you on the big changes in my life and also do a 2017 wrap-up post!

Oh hi blog. It's been a minute. This post is gonna be just plain ranty and about nothing much in particular. Have a popcorn. I haven't been on the blogosphere for a while, which is something I've noted in just about every post for the past few months. I've still managed to put up 5… Continue reading What’s happened to my blog?
Yes! I read a Harlequin romance! Why? Well, I was required to. But I'm actually very glad I was. Explanation: this summer I took a course in Adult Popular Literature and Reader's Advisory (the librarian term for how to recommend books to people). For the course, we were required to read about 9 novels from… Continue reading So I read a Harlequin romance…
Ohemgee, a new discussion post! Yaaaaaaaay! So I just finished up what is now one of my favorite classes I've taken in my educational career: Literacy, Reading, and Readers. It is exactly what is sounds like. We discussed a wide range of topics about literacy, including the history of reading, cultural and socioeconomic aspects of… Continue reading Intensive VS extensive reading: what’s the difference… and which is better?
This is a post I wrote on one of my library blogs for work. I though I'd share. Enjoy! I tried Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino today so you don’t have to. First, let me tell you something about myself: I love unicorns. I have unicorn jewelry. I watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (Twilight Sparkle… Continue reading Unicorn Frappuccino: a review
Hey! How's it going? Today, let's discuss what it's like blogging in different contexts! Fun!

So bear with me as this post (like most of… Continue reading On blogging for different audiences
This post was inspired in part by Puput, whose blog is phenomenal. She just wrote a wonderful post about writing negative/unpopular reviews. Please go read it! I've been thinking of writing about this for a long time now, and now that I'm refreshed after NaBloPoMo, I'm back and ready. Puput mentioned in her post about how… Continue reading Book bloggers: Are we too nice?
Guys, I'm so over blogging right now that I literally did my HOMEWORK before by blog post today. That's how over NaBloPoMo I am. I don't remember ever feeling this way last year during NaBloPoMo, but I have officially reached the breaking point. I am proud that there are only a few days left and… Continue reading It’s day 27 and I’ve reverted to stream of consciousness (and reading updates)
Dear humans of the internet, I'm just writing to say thank you for all you do. I think we're all thankful that we have this thing called the internet on which to communicate, share, laugh, cry, scratch our heads, and punch our keyboards. Yeah, we're thankful for the internet, but the internet is nothing without… Continue reading Thank you note
