It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for Poetry Series day 3! Today we’re moving on to sonnet 34, which i find very entertaining in general, and I think highlights a lot of Shakespeare’s more whiny characteristics
Hey guys!! so way way back in August, Celine nominated me for the Unique Blogger Award, which I’m super honored by. Thanks Celine (y’all, go check out her blog if you haven’t already)!!! Well, I’ve been meaning to write the post for a bit, but have been sort of skipping it and it got further and further down in my drafts folder until I nearly completely forgot about it, but now it’s Thursday night at midnight and my post is due to go up in seven hours and I have nothing written (and no ideas) and so I found this award and i’m writing it!!
Anyways, that was a super long and probably unnecessary introduction, so straight to the award!
Welcome to Poetry Series day II! Hopefully y’all are interested in Shakespeare Sonnets, because I’ve read (quite literally) every single one for this class and will be sharing about 11 with you guys.
Today, we’re talking about sonnet 27, which is my personal favorite of all time, and I think you guys will really enjoy it.
Hey y’all!! It’s been a super long time since I’ve written a blogging advice post, and so today i decided to write about using book twitter. originally, this was going to be a discussion on the different aspects of book twitter, but then it turned into a rant and i was scared it might get me yelled at by a lot of other book bloggers so…. we’re going to teach YOU, dear reader, how to use Twitter instead!!
Twitter usage is pretty essential for a blog, and i would argue (after Instagram, if you’re into aesthetic photos) is the one that will get you the most blog traffic. If you aren’t using it yet, or maybe even if you are, here are some tips to get the most out of your followers.
(personal note: this is the longest post I’ve written in so long and i’m super happy about that so yay hopefully y’all don’t get ridiculously bored!)
Hey guys! Welcome to day 1 of my poetry series! So for those of you that don’t know, I’m taking a class this semester on reading poetry. It’s been super cool because we get to analyze poems, which basically just means reading them and then doing a discussion style class where we sit around and talk about our feelings on them. Essentially, there’s not a ton of writing involved, but now that we’re halfway through the semester i’ve accumulated a decent base of short writings on poems that i’ve decided to share with you all. So, for the rest of the year, and then for however long it takes after that, I’ll be sharing one poem a week, along with whatever I wrote about it. some days, this might just be a short paragraph, and other days it’ll be a full essay. hopefully at least someone finds this interesting!
For today, I’ll be sharing some notes I wrote while reading Shakespeare’s Sonnet 9
