Random update (projects + my writing + exciting news)

Hellooooo, this is super random because I didn’t know what to post today. I’m still working on the newbie blogger project and I’ve been waiting for more submissions. I’ve gotten a few but I’d love to get some more to get this project really started. So, if you’re new at blogging, go check out this post.

I’m going to participate in a couple of projects, first The Typewriter Project by Mahriya from My Bookish Life, which I’m 100% sure will be super awesome. It’s a writing project and there are challenges and stuff, and you can still participate if you want (but be quick! Deadline is the 17th). Second, the Big Blogger, Little Blogger project by Mikaela from A Well Thumbed Reader, whose blog I only just discovered but already love. Basically bigger bloggers (which is me whoohoo) take little bloggers under their wing and try to help them. Sadly you can’t participate anymore because couples have already been formed. My partners are *drumroll* Nicole and Antonia from A Dance Between Pages and I’m super excited to get to know them, so hi Nicole! Hi Antonia!

I wanted to upgrade my url from my blog because I’ve been wanting to do that from the beginning but it’s so expensive… and it would be such a hassle to change it so, yeah that’s not happening any day soon.

My writing has been getting a bit less priority and is last on my to-do lists, which are pretty big. I haven’t even had the time or motivation to write a single word this week. I’ve been planning in my head and thinking about the characters of this book AND the next, and I can’t really wait to start really working on that, but like I said, time is an issue.

What I’ve been up to lately is a lot of reading, I’ve been trying to get through my ARC to-be-read list, which is pretty big. I’ve been writing reviews and scheduling those. So when I’ve gotten that over with, I can continue with all those books that have been not-so-patiently waiting on my shelves.

Last week I’ve been at uni for projects pretty much every day until late, which is exhausting, but surprisingly fun. I’m hoping that this week will be less busy and I can start writing again.

But now, for the exciting news, today I got a notification from wordpress, I HAVE REACHED 500 FOLLOWERS. LIKE WHATTT??? I would love to give back some love to the community, so if you’ve got an idea for something I can do…? Suggestions are welcome. And who knows maybe there will be a giveaway in the future?

  1. YAYYY CONGRATULATIONS!!! 500 is such an awesome follower count to reach, I feel like it’s the one most (including me) never dreamed of reaching!😂 I’m taking part in the Typewriter Project, and I’m a bit scared, but hopefully I can dust off my writing skills and do a decent job!

    1. Thank you ❤ It's a bit surreal, like: you could put only just fit all of my followers in the largest huge lecture hall at my uni. That's just crazy.
      I'm sure you will do great at the Typewriter Project!

      1. Oh my gosh same! But not at my uni lecture hall (I’m still stuck in the hell that is secondary school😂) but one of my schools halls! You’re right, it’s so crazy!
        Thank you, hopefully I do😄

      1. Not at the moment! Once I get everything in order (by that I mean once I figure out what I’m doing with my life), I’ll invest my time in bigger projects lol! Good luck with all yours though! 😀

  7. That’s awesome that you reached 500 followers! I’m really excited for the typewriter project, and it really isn’t that much to upgrade your URL, it’s only 26 dollars.

    1. Thanks! Huh that’s strange, it’s about $35 for me… but still, I’m a student and student life is expensive, I need the money 😦


  8. 500?! THAT’S AMAZING! Congratulations! Ugh, I wish I could participate on those projects but I’m too late since I’ve only come back to blogging a few days.
