#DiverseBookBloggersDiscuss: The YA community from the eyes of a YA

Andrea

Hello guys !

This is something different, isn’t it? Well, today, I’m here to present you with a new feature in which I give the reigns to other bloggers. When I started getting really close to the thousand followers, I started thinking of a way to give back to a community that has given me so much so this is how Diverse Book Bloggers Discuss came to be, as a way to boost diverse bloggers who are brilliant and have a lot to say but have smaller platforms and don’t really get as much reach as they deserve. I know I’m not the biggest out there, but I thought I’d do anything I can to help give my fellow marginalized folks a boost. Continue reading

1000 Followers Celebration: Q&A Announcement

Q&A Annoucement.png

HOLY CRAP I CANNOT BELIEVE I’M WRITING THIS POST RIGHT NOW !!!

happy-birthday.gif

Friends, we did it !!! My blog reached 1000 followers a few days ago and I still can’t wrap my head around that number, it’s just surreal. How can it be that so many people want to read my ramblings? When I started this journey a year and a half ago, this number seemed like a foreign concept, I didn’t think I’d attain it in years, let alone less than 2 years. Anyway, I don’t even have words anymore. Have you ever seen rambly me not ramble? NO. Well, hi, I don’t have enough words in my vocabulary right now to ramble, they’re all excited screams.

All of this to say how incredibly grateful I am for every follower, the old ones who stuck with me through highs and lows, all my experiments and not so great posts. And the new ones who are making everything I can dream of as a blogger possible or at least more attainable. Endless and special thanks to all the friends I’ve made, some of which are closer to me than most people IRL, some I go to with everything, my happiness and sorrows. Thank you, I love and appreciate you.

ANYWAY. This is not what you’re here for, what you ARE here for is my Q&A Announcement, SO, during the next week I will be taking any and all questions, reading, blogging, professional, personal, ANYTHING… And I’ll be answering everything next saturday, August 19th. And I may or may not have a surprise for you in that post, so ask away and keep an eye out for that one. But first, ASK AWAY.

So that is it for this quick post. Again, thank you for 1000 followers, it means the world to me ❤


That’s it until next time.

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.

Sol asks anyway and Alex reluctantly agrees. It’s only a week, after all, and Alex should be able to stop himself from throttling his big brother for a meager seven days. Probably. Maybe.

Navigating Discussion Posts

Discussion posts.png

Hello guys !

A little over a month ago, I made a post about What Makes People Come Back to a Blog and I promised back then that I’ll start doing helpful 101 posts for new bloggers or just bloggers who want the extra little help. So here I am today with a post about discussions, to hopefully break them down and give you a tip or two that I gathered from my own experience as someone who has been writing them almost weekly for a year, which doesn’t make me a professional, it just gives me one more excuse to ramble. Also, this is in no way me saying that you *need* to write discussion posts to be a good blogger or some nonsense of the sort, this is just me sharing my personal thoughts that I hope will be helpful to someone.

#TheReadingQuest Sign-up post

Title.png

Hello guys !

I’ve never ever done a monthly challenge on here (I believe) because for 1/ I don’t like stressing over my reading (which I do anyway) and 2/ They come at the worst time possible for me, especially Aentee’s challenges. Since I started blogging she’s made amazing and in my opinion the best reading challenges so I died a little bit inside everytime I couldn’t take part in them. UNTIL NOW. Continue reading
