Well folks, my first Monday Musings post is coming to you on a Tuesday. I agree with you if you think that probably isn’t the greatest start to this new category.
Really I just wanted a little space in the week to just talk or scream, vent or splurge adoration on, cry or laugh or express awe.
I should say first of all that I have nothing particularly noteworthy to say other than I need to settle. For weeks now I’ve been scouring through Themes on this darn site, trying to find something that fits me, fits my blog, fits what I need this site to stand for. I think I’ve probably gone through about 5 or 6 different themes before this latest one.
That’s a little smudged I know but there it is. I hope you like it because I really have been struggling; every time I opened up my old theme, no matter how much I messed with it, changed colours, fiddled with fonts, it just didn’t fit the idea I had for my little pixelated part of the internet. And because I wasn’t happy with it, I just didn’t want to post. I was writing and writing but always felt reluctant to press publish. I wanted my blog to be more of a library of reviews but the image I had in my head just never translated onto screen and so I felt like every week I was back to square one.
I feel so much better now. My new theme is simple but at the root of it is what I wanted this to be about in the first place; books. I like the addition of my Goodreads ‘Currently Reading’ as it give you an idea of what reviews might be coming up. I’m also really into my Reading Challenge this year and am trying desperately to complete it. Hopefully you will find a book to pick up yourself or comment on if you’ve already read it.
In my menu you can see the following categories:
- Book Reviews: Well, that speaks for itself. It will be the same reviews that I’ve always put up
- Monday Musings: Will just be a little update from me on a Monday (or Tuesday as this one has ended up being) with anything that isn’t a Book Review
- Playlists: This is also a brand new category of mine. I’ll hopefully be posting once a week but it might end up being once every two. This will essentially be just lists. Books I want to Read. Books that bring me out of myself. Music Playlists. Movie Playlists. Tv. You name it; I’ll list it.
I’ve also put my Social Media Links on the right hand side. Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads and Pinterest. I’ll probably talk a bit about social media at some point- you will probably notice if you visit any of these places that I’m not terribly active but if you want to pop by to say Hi or send me a friend request on Goodreads, I’m always after new blogs to read and more recently I have been watching Booktube reviews so if any of you have an account please let me know and I’ll check it out. You are so much braver than I am.
Anyway, that’s enough from me for now
