blogging things I feel bad about

blogging things I feel bad about

I love blogging, but blogging is not always a smooth sailing type of thing. I would like to imagine that every blogger has things they’re insecure about, so hopefully this post will resonate with some people and not offend too many. I care a lot about how a person’s blog looks. If your blog looks super […]

I…kind of want to start a new blog??

Or…revamp this one?? Depending on when I decide to publish this post, I may have already talked about how I feel like my blog doesn’t have a distinctive voice or honestly what feels like anything distinctive about it, really. I feel like I’m still blogging as though it’s 2012 and everyone’s trying to do what […]

I’ve also been having problems keeping track of my unread books, but don’t really like the Goodreads app. So, I was very excited to discover the Litsy app by LibraryThing a couple of weeks ago. Litsy is basically Goodreads and […]

how I’m blogging differently now

how I’m blogging differently now

I’ve mentioned here before that this is not my first go-around with blogging, even though this is a new blog. Before blogging at A Word and a Whisper, I blogged for about 6 years, experimenting on different platforms, but mostly on a WordPress blog you probably haven’t heard of, because I started out as and […]

why I no longer do blog tours

why I no longer do blog tours

When I first started blogging, I was so desperate to be accepted for blog tours. To be honest, I mainly wanted the chance to read ARCs and the blog publicity because I was a tiny baby blog, as I am again now (alas). However, I have realized over time that blog tours and review requests […]
