1 Month of Introvert Reading

I recently crossed the one month anniversary of my blog. I am going to reflect on what I have learned so far, goals moving forward, and why I took a break last week.

I cannot believe I have somewhat kept up with this blog. I have always tried to keep numerous blogs on Tumblr and one other on here. Before I got started this blog, I got rid of the previous blog I tried to run. It is not easy, but here are some quick stats to make me feel a little better.

Total Posts: 20 posts!

Total Followers: 30 lovelies! (all of you!)

Most Active Social: Twitter!

I have found myself being much more active on Twitter right before I started my blog and even more now than ever. It’s fun over there. You can head over to my page to see some live thoughts while I read certain books, the lastest was A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, random thoughts I have, and lots of retweets from things I support and lots of fan art and regular art I love!

This blog is a bunch of fun because I am pushing myself to share what I love and interact with people. I am a shy person so even putting myself out on the internet behind the camera or screen is scary. I do hope to do a face reveal soon. It will likely start my youtube channel up again when I do.

I guess that is a good segway into some goals I have for the next 2-3 months.

  • post every day or every weekday
  • rename Series Binge – I’ve always hated that name and it will be more than just series. If you have any ideas let me know.
  • prewrite and pretake photos for the blog
  • get on a somewhat regular schedule

There are not many, but this is easier for me to keep on top of and it is much more manageable while I finish the school year.

I do hope I can get back to posting regularly on my Instagram too because that seems to always fall to the side. I might change either my Instagram or Twitter handle to match this blog since everything is a little disjointed. I already changed my channel name to match because it’s cute.

As you may have noticed, last week I did not post and a few days the week before also. I did this because I have a lot of school work I have been falling behind. I was trying not to turn things in late, but I struggle with deadlines. Maybe one day, I will be better at turning work in.

Anyway, I had to let something fall off my plate and the blog happened to be it. I tried every day to get a new post up, but I couldn’t do it. My mental health was terrible last week as well, so I tried not to put that bad energy out because it would have been noticeable that I was not up for it, as evident in my Unpopular Opinion tag..😬 that was a mess.

Today, Monday, I have been grinding out homework since I woke up and I am nowhere near caught up. But I have some end of the month posts coming this week and some fun ones next week.

All in all, this blog has been amazing for my mental health and to keep me busy during these tough and confusing times. I am thankful for all of you who take the time to read me gush over books, rant about whatever I was thinking, and anything else that comes from my brain.
