Where I’ve Been and Where I’m Going

Posted September 10, 2018 by Lillian in Features / 2 Comments

hello from jack sparrow

Happy Monday y’all! I’m back ๐Ÿ˜€ Summer’s ending and I’ve been busy. New design, new content, and a new feature are all coming at you this month. And I couldn’t wait to share it with y’all!ย 

Finding My Mojo

As summer began, I realized that reading held no joy for me. It had become a chore. That’s why I had to take a break and say goodbye just for a little while. It was a good idea!

I’ve spent the summer trying to find my mojo again. I’ve read a little bit of everything from historical fiction to dystopias, science fiction to romance (hard core romance too!), young adult to old favorites. After all of that, I think I’ve found my mojo. Not only is reading fun again, but so is blogging.ย 


Because I’ve missed y’all!

A New Design

While I loved the original design of the blog, I felt it was dated and looked too busy. I wanted a cleaner look and one that reflected my girly side. Michelle @ Limabean Designs (who also did my original design) worked with me this summer and came up with the new one. AND I LOVE IT!!! What do y’all think?

New Content Ratings

One thing I felt strongly about while reading this summer is content ratings and why there are none on books. I DO NOT condone censoring books, however I felt it was time that books were rated like virtually every other form of entertainment (TV, Movies, even Video Games). Using My Book Ratings, I’m adding ratings to books for patents who may not have the time to read everything their teen reads. More info on this coming later this week.

New TV & Movie Reviews

Novel Flicks Meme

I like my shows and movies just as much as I like reading, so I thought it was high time I started sharing my opinions of what I watch. Also it was a top request from those of you who filled out my reader survey ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

I’m Here to Stay

While a few things are changing, I’ve decided to keep most of it the same. I’ve reopened review requests, though I plan on being picky going forward. I’m really looking forward to linking back up with the memes: TTT, WoW, and Sunday Post. I’m also excited to continue sharing Children’s Corner and Weekend Reads with all of you. I’m just excited to be back ๐Ÿ˜€ย

  1. I am glad to hear you’re back! But sometimes a break is just what you need to get your mojo back and I am glad to hear reading and blogging is fun again. As it’s just sad when reading becomes a chore and something I think a lot of bloggers struggle with. It’s hard to find the right balance sometimes.

    I like your new design! Michelle did an awesome job with. She also designed my blog banners ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your content ratings sure seem helpful for parents or people who want to know what a book contains. And reviewing movies and tv shows sounds like a good idea. I have reviewed a few movies or shows on my blog, but usually only do so if I feel strongly about it. I am looking forward to see the new things you’ve planned for your blog, but it’s also nice you’re keeping a lot of the things the same.

    • Thank you Lola! Michelle always does great โ˜บ๏ธ I hope that the content ratings convey what I mean and not be used for censoring. Iโ€™ve really debated it all summer but I feel strongly about it being needed.
      Iโ€™m glad to be back!
