Freadom Library in 2018

Hello everyone!

I’ve been wanting to write this post up for awhile now. But don’t really know what to say even though I finally have the time to. My blog has changed a lot in the last year and a half and I guess I wanted to set up a new precedent for what you guys can expect going forward.

In 2015, when I started my blog, I only spent a few months (from August to December) posting content so it was a little sporadic. In 2016, I manage to pull off posting 6 to 7 times a week for the entire year which I still don’t know how I managed it. In 2017, my goal was to post 3 to 4 times a week but toward the end of the year, it got harder and harder to post and the numbers dwindled down to nothing.

This year, I understand how busy my life is right now. I am working and studying at the same time which I’ve never done before and those loads are only going to get fuller as time goes on.

So far I’ve been able to post at least once a month, twice a week if I have the time but there hasn’t been anything more than TBRs, Wrap Ups and the occasional anticipated releases post.

When I started this blog, my goal was to share my reviews for the books I read because I wanted to be able to talk to fellow book lovers about amazing books. And the worst part about not posting on my blog as much was falling behind on my reviews.

My goal for the year is to be able to keep up with monthly to be reads and wrap ups, but also to post reviews. Of older reads, newer reads and series I’ve finished. To continue to share my love for reading with you all.

I know reviews are the least popular kinds of posts around the blogosphere which is why I inundated my blog with memes and features when I first started. But I have since learned that reviews are the posts that make me the happiest to share and I don’t want to continue to push myself to write discussions or create features that are new or interesting but take my forever to come up with.

I hope you all enjoy the direction I’m taking now and that you stick around to hear my thoughts on books. I’d love to continue to chat with you guys!

So that’s it for this post! Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!

2018 Reading Challenges

Hello everyone!

I am here today to share my second post about my goals for 2018. This one is about all the reading challenges that I am participating in this year. Last year, I did pretty okay with my reading challenges and I hope to keep it up in 2018.

This year I’m doing the challenges that I created for myself in 2017 based on the books that I feel like I need to read the most.

2 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY! Where I’ve Been and What I’ve Learned

Hello everyone!

Happy 2nd Blogiversary to me! I can’t believe I’ve made it to this day. I’m so used to giving up on hobbies and letting things fall to the wayside but I feel like this is the one time where I’ve managed to keep it together. This last month has been a struggle and this day almost passed me by but I didn’t want it to be just another day where I didn’t post anything because I’m struggling with my schedule. This will be short and sweet but I hope you like it either way.

SO let’s get started!

Q&A Announcement!

Q&A Announcement

Hello everyone!

This is just a quick little post I wanted to do today to share that I’ll be doing a Q&A this coming week! My 1 year blogiversary is coming up on next Thursday and I really wanted to do something to commemorate it. Unfortunately, I don’t have the funds for a giveaway and I wanted to chat about some of my blogging milestone and I decided to add a Q&A as well, thanks to the advice of my friend Esther @ Chapter Adventures.

I’m really scared that nobody will ask me anything so please, please comment some on this post! I’m pretty much an open book (hee hee) so ask me anything! Bookish, personal and advice questions, I want to answer anything that your head can come up with.

I’m so blessed and thankful not only to have this amazing outlet to talk about books and all kinds of fandom things and to be able to make friends with other bookworms all over the world! Thank you all so much for joining me on this journey and you really hope you help me contribute to my mini party.

2016 Personal, Reading and Blogging Resolutions

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to talk about my resolutions for 2016. Not only blogging and reading wise, but also some personal ones so you guys can get to know me a little bit better.

So I’m probably one of the last people to do one of these kinds of posts. But in my defense, I really had to think about goals that I could accomplish but also, things that challenge me and push me out of my comfort zone.

SO let’s get started!

100 FOLLOWERS!?

followed-blog-100-2x

I’m sorry, what? Are you sure, WordPress? Do I really have 100 followers after only having had my blog for 5 months?

YES! Thank you so so so much to everyone who has followed my blog, and commented on it. To be honest, when I started this blog, I thought it would be a huge struggle to get noticed and to show that I was out there just like it was for my Youtube channel, but it’s been such a pleasure to get to know so many great people who put such effort into their work and are really doing what they love.

I am still stupefied by this news. I really can’t believe.

I want to specially thank Lindsay @ Untamed Shrews for following me on January 1st and becoming my 100th follower. I hope we can get to know each other! As well as Gervan and Abby, my two closest friends who pushed me to try my hand at blogging.

Thanks to all the great friends I’ve made since I started. Melanie, Josie, Jesse, Aldii, Giovanna, Maria and all those people who I chat with on the comments all the time but we haven’t gotten to know each other yet. THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for your support and encouragement.

What a great start to 2016 guys. It’s just uphill from here.
