Blogging Advice: Consistency (Pros and Cons)

wow, it’s been a minute since i’ve written a post trying to give advice about absolutely anything. and in a way, this isn’t even going to be an advice post. in fact, by the time y’all read this post, there’s a chance that it’ll just have turned into a discussion on whether or not you should blog consistently (edit: i added pros and cons to the end to make it seem less decisive). But at any rate, hopefully you glean something interesting from this post.

The NOPE Book Tag

i’m normally not this on top of tags (i mean, i was only tagged in this one, about, 15 days ago!)  and i skipped a bunch of the ones i was supposed to do to get to this one, but it just seemed super fun, and i haven’t done anything like this in a while, so i figured it was worth moving up in the cue.  The Nope Book Tag (shoutout to the absolutely incredible HOLLY @ Nutfree Nerd for tagging me!) probably appeals to me so much because it’s basically exactly what it sounds– you talk about all of your negative book opinions. And since i’m stuck in a pit of self loathing and hatred, being a little bit negative may be exactly what i need. so get ready folks.

Discussion: The Pros and Cons of Buddy Reading

sorry this post is a little bit late today!! i’ve been working on finding the finalists for the book blogger awards and it’s taken up more of my time than i realized this week!

A couple of few months ago (wow, it’s been a while) I read All the Light We Cannot See at the same time as three of my close (irl) friends. This was the first time I’ve ever read a book at the same time as anyone, especially anyone who actually wanted to talk about the book like I did.  Overall, I really enjoyed it, and would hands down do it again, but it made me think about some of the pros and cons of reading a book at the same time as someone else. Since i see lots of people online starting buddy reading or book clubs, i hope other people will be interested in hearing my thoughts!

so i had a lot of trouble formulating the title for this blog post, and i guess that’s probably because i’m super unsure of what i’m actually trying to say. i’ve been spending a while brainstorming good discussion posts, because i know i haven’t posted one in a long time, and now i have something that i want to write about, but i can’t figure out how to go about it. so hopefully by the time you read it, this post will have been edited 4 times (update: it took 7) and sound semi-coherent, but i thought it was relevant information that i’m having trouble writing this.

The 4 Best Reading Spots on My College Campus

Before this year, I never considered where I was reading.  I mean, it didn’t really seem to matter that much. Whenever I had a spare moment, whether it was in the car, in my room, or out at the mall, I could just pull out my kindle/book/phone, and start reading. I actually remember reading a post on “places to read” (I can’t remember who wrote it, so sorry for the lack of credit if this was you) a couple of years ago and my instant reaction was “why do you need a place to read? can’t reading happen everywhere”?

Which is why it’s somewhat ironic that I’m writing this post today.
