Let’s Talk: 4 of my most unpopular opinions- AKA my bad blogger confessions

Happy Saturday to all you amazing people! I hope you have an incredible weekend ahead of you!

For this week’s Tuesday’s Tidbit, I wrote a post talking about how bloggers shouldn’t be afraid to post their most controversial or unpopular opinions, so I thought I’d follow it up by posting some of mine!

Here’s the thing: I have a ton of unpopular opinions, so this is gonna have to be a two part series!

So, without any further ado, the first set of my most unpopular opinions! (Please, don’t judge me too harshly!)

Top 5 Fall Faves!

Happy Tuesday (again)! It’s been ages since I’ve done a Top 5 Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful Shanah @ BionicBookworm, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk about my favorite fall reads!

Technically the topic is cozy fall reads, but I’d only call a few of these books “cozy.” The rest are books that I reread (or plan to reread) every fall!

So, without further ado, my Top 5 Fall Faves!

Tuesday Tidbits #8- Go ahead and write that controversial post

Happy Tuesday all you awesome people! I hope you experience only the best things this week!

Today’s Tidbit comes from something I think a lot of bloggers experience at one time or another in their blogging journey: we have with an opinion that’s unpopular or controversial, and we get too nervous to post it!

But posting that controversial idea, whether it’s a review, a discussion, or just some unpopular opinions, can be the absolute best, for a few reasons!

First off, it often draws more attention to your blog! Of my five most popular posts, three of them were unpopular opinions of some kind or another. Plus, if I’m scrolling through my feed, and I see that someone has posted something I might disagree with, I’m more interested in reading it. I love seeing new perspectives on things!

Secondly, there’s no need to be nervous! The blogging community is amazing! As long as you stay respectful and open-minded when you write your opinion, the blogging community will do the same. So your post can lead to some incredible, surprising discussions!

So if you’ve ever felt nervous about writing a controversial post, I want to encourage you to go ahead and do it! It can lead to some pretty awesome stuff on your blog!


Thanks for reading!

Let’s Talk: Diversity, Necessity, and Star Trek

PSA: This post will probably be longer and rambly-er than my usual posts, but I hope promise? it’ll be worth it!

So, a little while ago, there was a bit of a shit-storm on book-Twitter. Usually, when I comment on drama like that, I leave it on Twitter. But, in this case, my thoughts are a little too big for 280 characters, so now, you all get the pleasure of seeing my thoughts on an issue that seems to pop up again and again in the book world.

So, without any further ado, here’s my two cents on the whole issue.

Tuesday Tidbits #7- In which my perfectionism came out to play over post links

Happy Tuesday to all you awesome people! I hope you all have awesome weeks ahead of you!

This week’s Tidbit is brought to you by my supreme perfectionist tendencies, and how much I like everything on my blog to match. Almost every blog has a theme; some of you guys have beautiful, floral designs, some of you have clean, streamlined themes. For me, the only thing really tying it all together is the green, because it’s my favorite color!

Like most WordPress themes, mine has a specific color for links inside my posts. So, if I put a link in my post, it automatically appears as this nice green color. Which made me happy, because it matched with the rest of my theme.

BUT THEN I DISCOVERED SOMETHING. That color doesn’t stay the same across all platforms. If you read my post on my blog, you see a green link. BUT if you read my post on the WordPress Reader, it’s that light link blue! And that’s when perfectionist Ryann came out to play!

If I wanted my links to be the same color no matter where your see them, I had to do it by manually changing it when you write the post. (The easiest way to do this is to highlight the part you want to make the link, and change the color BEFORE you add the link.)

So if you’re as big a perfectionist as I am, and love when everything about your blog is color coordinated, make sure to manually change the color!
