Hi folks! I was having a think the other day about blog post ideas, and to be honest I was struggling to think of anything. I haven’t been doing a whole lot of reading for a while, and I write so much of my life down in notebooks these days that I don’t splurge quite so much online.
But that led me to the idea of sharing those notebooks with you. And that idea is what led me to the realisation that:
I have seven on the go at the moment, each for a different purpose, and I thought it’d be fun to share what kinds of notebooks I like, how I use them, and the techniques I use to keep track of my life within them. So that’s what I’m going to do in this post! I’ll go through them, rather arbitrarily, in size order. Continue reading
Hi folks! Something a little different for you today. It being Endometriosis Awareness Week this week (3rd-9th March) I thought I’d share my experiences with the condition, and do what I can this week to spread the word.
I’ve used inclusive, gender neutral language throughout this post. Not every woman has a uterus, not every person with a uterus is a woman. I firmly believe that resources on conditions like endometriosis should be accessible to everyone. Continue reading
Before we start. This is one of my more personal posts. If we know each other in a professional capacity, or if we’re family, you might want to think about skipping this one. I’m leaving the decision up to you. This isn’t a particularly happy or relaxing post, but it’s been cathartic to write it, and I think it will be cathartic to share.
Also, trigger warnings for abandonment issues, and vague mentions of childhood trauma (not mine) and bullying (mine). Continue reading
Hello, folks! Welcome to my second post on Bible journaling. To catch the first, where I talk about the materials you might want to grab, click here.
Today I want to talk about actual techniques to make your pages look really good. Some of these, I’ve tried. Some, I’m waiting to find the right verse to give it a proper go. But they all should be fairly easy to achieve. Continue reading
Hi folks! Today I want to introduce you to something new and crafty I’m trying out. It’s called Bible Journaling.
Bible journaling is a great way to connect with God’s word, relieve stress at the end of the day, and have fun with paints and pens to create beautiful Bible pages, personalised with your thoughts and favourite verses. Continue reading
Hello, folks! I’ve been running this blog for just over a year now, and today is my 100th post!
I initially started with the intention of cataloguing my reading for and experiences at YALC 2016. I enjoyed connecting with other readers and writers, but since I’d started blogs before and never managed to stick with them, I wasn’t making any big commitment to a long term project.
But YALC was fun, and I was going to a couple of other book events over the summer, so I thought I’d stick with it for now at least, have some fun, and see where I got.
It wasn’t until the beginning of this year that I realised I wanted to make a proper go of it. I started scheduling posts in advance, interacting more with the online book community, and committed myself to several year-long reading challenges to pull me through any potential slumps.
And now, here we are. 100 posts in, over a year blogging, and I’ve met so many great people, and read so many amazing books. So I thought it would be nice to do a meet-the-blogger post to celebrate my milestone. Thus: here are some things about me! Continue reading
