January Goals

It’s the New Year. Pretty crazy if you ask me haha, I mean where the hell did 2018 go? Still, with the New Year sparks many of us setting goals, resolutions that we vow to stick by. Only to forget about them a week later….in my Yearly Rewind 2018 post, I shared with you all my yearly goals. Today, I’m going to be sharing with you my goals for this month. 

I decided that along with my yearly goals, which I’ll put in each monthly goals post. I’d also set myself monthly goals, these goals are split into Blog, Writing, Reading and Personal goals.

Yearly Rewind 2018

2019 is almost upon us! It’s crazy to think that this year has already happened…although this year hasn’t exactly been a great year for me, despite turning 18. I may eventually write a post on what went on, when its all been sorted, for now though.

2018 has been a crappy year for me personally, my reading has suffered thanks to it, I’ve been on auto pilot for most of the year. And I’m determined to make the most of 2019…we’ll see how that goes eh?

Rewinds are the new wrap ups, we’ll be having monthly rewinds starting next year as well yearly ones. I also have some exciting news, so keep reading for that! Now this post is split into different topics: Blog, Reading, Writing, Life, Announcements. & Goals/Plans.

Supporting Me, My Content & Others

I’m coming at you with something very exciting, it’s something I’d been seriously considering for a while now. Now though, I know roughly what I’d love to be able to do and that requires your guys’ help.

I’m not sure if you’ve heard of Ko-Fi before; simply it’s a way to give donations to creators for their work. I recently set up a page on there and I have plans to hopefully invest in getting Ko-Fi Gold to test out and see if that can help me, and in the long term my fellow book bloggers, out.

No My TBR Did Not Murder Me (Life updates, Anouncements & More)

Wheeee hello all. I know it’s erm kinda been a while hasn’t it? So, firstly no I did not get murdered by my TBR. I am still living, sorta and breathing. I’ve just become a hermit recently because thing sgot overwhelming and I stepped back from posting on my blog, to sort some things out.

What’s been happening I hear you ask? WELL LEMME GATHER MY LIST HERE AND TELL YOU.

Bookending Winter 2018 AND Tidyathon

Yep, if you somehow missed those things then hop to it and click onto the related post in the title! Sam and I have worked so hard on Bookend Events, and it’s still a puppy albeit an excited puppy, we’re both new to this whole event running business. BUT we’re determined to make it work, and the Tidyathon is my puppy which is part of the Bookend Events.

A brief rundown is Bookend Events runs quarterly and began with Blogoween. Sam and I got our heads together, to rename it and add in 4 events (one for each season) so it become more of a long term thing. And so it wasn’t a major stress fest at the end of the year. Bookend Events is the umbrella term for Bookending Spring, Bookending Summer, Bookending Autumn/Fall (was called Blogoween originally) and Bookending Winter. We evolved the events, as well as making them as inclusive as we possibly could. The main event is to write 3-5 blog posts. Though the Tidyathon is an extra which happens alongside each event.

For more information though, do check out the posts! We have big plans for the event next year and erm…even into 2020 *smirks* we’re not partners in crime for nothing. We’re just trying to the book blogging community closer together and eventually…maybe even the whole bookish community? Who knows…

Blog Redesign

I’ve been working on this on and off since like August or something ridiculous like that. Basically, I started it and then stopped midway through realising I wanted a new direction. So I found my direction and I’m happy with it, what you can expect (hopefully on the 1st Jan it will be live)

  • My blog theme will be switching from Lovecraft to a new one
  • New colour scheme
  • New featured images
  • Colour revamp on graphics
  • New and updated pages (providing they don’t eat me first…I had a meltdown about them misbehaving on my test blog ok. *sobs*)
  • Some new graphics and the sidebar is gonna look prettier…hopefully

OH YEAH just a warning, cause I’m switching themes my new theme doesn’t have post excerpt enabled in it. So please don’t hurt me for my old posts showing all of itself, I’m hoping to get to reformatting some of them in the Tidyathon. But I won’t get to them till next year probably, so I’m sorry in advance for that.

Content For 2019

I’ve been getting my prewriting game on. In the sense of I basically have two reviews left to write up to post in January, and then January posts are basically written. Except for the goals and wrap up post. I’ve also been planning out content up till March and roughly outlining up to June. Since I like being able to see what I’m planning on having haha. So that’s kept me busy.

Life…aka College

I love college but also hate it at the same time. Mainly because I stress out over everything, overcomplicate things and have zero confidence in my designs haha. Still, what’s new? I’m still currently working on an assignment, which is a Zine assignment. That’s due in 7th December though…so soon.

Also hi, I’m super lazy at the moment so you get zero graphics in this post because most of them will get changed anyway. Anyway, Bookending Winter actually starts TOMORROW well for me in about 2ish hours. But I’m planning to snooze first.

What’s been happening with you all? Are you joining in on the event/s?
