My 1-Year Blogiversary!!! // Because of Blogging, New Design (!!), Shoutouts, and a Huge Massive THANK YOU to Everyone

Can you believe that I’ve been blogging for ONE YEAR???

I definitely can’t. Some days I feel like I’ve been blogging for soooo much loooonger (you probably have all felt this, thinking, “AGAIN” each time you see a new post from me), and then other times I feel like I’ve been blogging for such a short time that it can’t even possibly be one year yet??

FJDA;LSFJALSJFASLFJASDLFASD.

But I’m in AWE that I’ve made it this far. I honestly wasn’t that doubtful I’d make it to a year because I fell in love with blogging as soon as I started, but it means SO much to have made it as far as I have??? I did NOT EXPECT THIS.

And I don’t sound like it, but I’m EXTREMELY EXTREMELY excited about today!!! So excited that I can’t even express it my excitement! Or maybe that’s me being at a loss of words like I always seem to be.

In “celebration” of 1. YEAR. OF. BLOGGING. I’ll be listing a few things that happened to me because of blogging this past year, and then talking about my new design (HAVE YOU NOTICED YET), giving a few shoutouts, and some other things!

I would’ve hosted a giveaway but I’m literally broke. So. NEXT YEAR. I PROMISE. MAYBE.

(Also the first part of this post was inspired by the lovely Beth @ Reading Every Night’s 2-Year Blogiversary post, which was so amazing to read!!)

So I have a lot of cool tricks.

Such as the trick for every inch of my ability to interact with humans* without being awkward to disappear each time when I interact with humans. Or the trick for mangoes to disappear each time I’m near them.

Abacadabra and mango magic tricks aside, I have a lot of cool tricks when it comes to BLOG POST FORMATTING!! And blog post designing!! And other blog-related things!!!

So I’ve decided to compile a list of some of my most useful tricks that I’ve discovered, all for you guys. Except not all of them, because I am selfish don’t really know any other tricks besides the ones mentioned in this post??

Oh, and I actually had this post planned before I posted my WordPress Improvements post last week, but then I saw how enthusiastic y’all were to learn about how I make text size bigger and center images in a row so THAT MADE ME MORE EXCITED FOR THIS POST.

*I say humans like that because I am not one.

Why Diversity & Representation in Books is Important // Why We Need Rep & Why We Need to Promote Diverse Books

Diversity in books is SO. SO. important.

If you haven’t gotten that already????

But seriously, I’ve talked about diversity in books a few times before (definitely not enough), but I never once mentioned WHY it was so important?? Which is shakening information. Because this is something so so important* to me??? And yet I never mentioned WHY.

So today, I’m obviously going to be talking about why diversity is needed in books. And also why we need to promote books with diversity in them.

It’s going to be to VERY ranty and also quite all over the place, but I need a place to vent and ramble and what’s a blog for if not that??

*WHAT’S ANOTHER WORD FOR IMPORTANT.

9 Improvements to WordPress All Bloggers Would Love & Appreciate aka Please Fix This Right Now or I Will Cry

There are lots of things I complain about.

For example, the fact that I don’t read fast enough, I don’t own enough books as I’d like, I don’t have nearly enough time to do anything I want.

(So apparently I don’t have enough of a lot of things???)

The point is, I have a lot of complaints. Too many. And WordPress isn’t exempt from any of my complaining nature, because I’m just too full of salt & discontentment that it overflows onto everything I come into contact with. Like mangoes, did you know I HATE mangoes????

So today, I’m going to talk about 9 things that I want WordPress to improve in, since I just have to release all my saltiness!! Hopefully these are all things you want to??? Otherwise that would be awkward and I’d be lying in my post title.

What Bookworms Say Versus What Bookworms ACTUALLY Mean: a Guide on the Words of Contradictory Creatures

Bookworms are very contradictory. 

I’m sure I’ve talked about this before??? I mean, everyone basically contradicts themselves these days (including a certain… American political figure*), but bookworms contradict themselves THE MOST.

I think the books just kind of like mess with our minds and make us prone to unintentional lying??? Or dramatizing everything???

So because we all need a little help in life, today I’m giving a few situations where bookworms say something TOTALLY different than what they mean. If you’re not a bookworm, you can recognize when your book lover friend is lying to you and get them the help they need.

And if YOU’RE the bookworm, you’ll probably find yourself in a lot of these. I hope. Otherwise that would mean this is all me and that would be AWKWARD.

*OOPS I’M SUPPOSED TO KEEP THIS UN-CONTROVERSIAL.
