Do I Read Weird?

Are you a fiend for a Buzzfeed quiz? Me too. I seem to spend hours scrolling on my phone finding out what kind of cat I am, or what my favourite pizza topping says about my shoe size. I love to share the outcome of these quizzes with everyone I know.

Recently, one quiz caught my eye moreso than any other. It asked readers to take a look at their reading habits and honestly, I was hooked on it. I love calling myself out for being a really bad reader (because I know I have a lot of points that can improve) so a quiz like this one is perfect for me. I’m ready to call myself out as a pretty awful (at times) reader. Care to join me? Why not answer these questions for yourself

For some people, reading about people going through the same struggles and joys as they are, can make their own experiences a little easier to deal with.

There are a number of series though that I will likely never return to. There are a few reasons why I might decide to permanently shelve a series I was once loving.

Advice for New Bloggers

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But A Lot.

I remember how it felt to be a new blogger, despite it being so long ago. The worry of no one reading my posts was incredibly high, and it took me a while to settle in and find my groove. I’ve been blogging for over six years, but I am in no way an expert on how to blog. That said, I have picked up a couple of ideas that I’m more than happy to share with some newcomers – or, as a boost for old timers who are feeling a little bugged down.

To All The Blog Posts I Loved Before

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little But A Lot.

We’ve all been a little overtaken with the latest Netflix craze. The inspiration for the title of this blog post. I think I’ve watched it about 2840923714 times since it came out. It was the perfect title for this Six for Sunday post, where I’m sharing the love for some bloggers and their fantastic work. You just know this is going to be a fan girl campaign for one specific blogger, don’t you. . .
