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!)
PSA: This post will probably be longer and rambly-er than my usual posts, but I hopepromise? 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.
I see a lot of people, particularly on Twitter, mentioning their pet peeves in books, or tropes that they’ve seen so much, they can’t stand the sight of it one more time. And usually, though I understand where they’re coming from, I 100% disagree!
Last week, I talked about my 5 most traumatic character deaths, the ones that left me in a weeping heap of emotions that made me want to both never read a book again, but also read every single book by that author because HOW CAN PAPER AND INK MAKE ME FEEL SO MUCH?!
And while I definitely appreciate those well- written deaths, there have been some character deaths that have been… well, less than gut-wrenching. For whatever reason, whether the character or her arc weren’t developed enough, or it was just made to feel like a cheap, meaningless death, these deaths just left me wanting more (more what? More death? Better death??? What does this say about me?).
So, without further ado, here are my 5 most disappointing character deaths.
If I’m being 100% honest, I love a well-written character death. If a book can make me cry, I immediately love it so much more. And I’ve read plenty of books that had me crying myself to sleep because OH MY LANTA, HOW CAN YOU PUT A CHARACTER THROUGH THAT KIND OF PAIN?!?!
And because I don’t want to be alone in my pain, I thought I’d share the 5 most painful character deaths, and remind you guys of all the pain, too! BWAHAHAHA!!
Also, it probably goes without saying, but there are probably gonna be some spoilers in this post.
I’m back with a bit more advice for anyone just starting their blog. This week’s advice focuses on something that still makes me feel like a brand new blogger sometimes, and that is my blog posts! Sometimes it’s really hard to know when or what to post, or if a draft is ready to be posted, even if you’ve been blogging for years.
So, even though I still struggle with this sometimes, I’m gonna try to give some tips I’ve picked up along the way that may make blogging a little easier for any of you new bloggers out there.
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a great time over the holidays!
It’s the season of new beginnings and New Year resolutions. This is the time of year I first decided to start my blog, and I think a lot of people start a blog around the new year. So, while I was planning my discussion posts for January, I decided I’d do my own blog advice series for new bloggers. If you’re new to the blogging community, or even if you aren’t, I hope you’ll find a few helpful tips this month!
This post is about the most basic beginning element of your blog: its theme and aesthetics. With seemingly unlimited options when it comes to themes and the ways you can customize them, building the actual appearance of your blog can sometimes seem a little overwhelming. So, here are a few tips that I learned along the way!
