Hi everyone! I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while, since I recently finished my first semester and am in my second semester of college! It’s no exaggeration that blogging takes a lot of time and effort out of you, but imagine juggling blogging and college shenanigans as well. Hence, I’m here to give you a few tips for blogging as a college student.
Winter is fast approaching, unless you live in a city/country where it is warm all year round. Unfortunately, I do not have that luxury as I live up in the cool country of Canada. But fear not my fellow Winterians, I have the perfect tips to survive the winter cold this season. Of course they all revolve around all things bookish people love, because duh, wouldn’t make sense if it didn’t!
If you’ve been following arctic books for a while, you might have known that I started my first year at college! I spent a good few weeks of packing, and throughout that time, I accumulated quite a few tips that I thought I’d share with you, whether it’s your first time heading to college or you want to save this as a reference in the future.
I don’t know about you guys, but I love fashion just as much I like books. Am I though only one? Even though I classify myself as a fashion terrorist, A.K.A. I suck at matching colors; fashion has always been a big part of my life.
I would say my personal style is defintiely neutral colors like black, white, grey, navy etc. I love me some skinny jeans, cropped pants, big knitted sweaters and hoodies. What about you guys?
I thought it would be fun to show you guys what’s trending in the fashion world this Fall of 2017, so let’s begin:
Earlier last year, I wrote a blog post, detailing steps on using Edelweiss, a site on which you can request digital galleys from publishers. Edelweiss has since then transformed into a whole new site, upgrading into Edelweiss Plus. I took it upon myself to write another tutorial on how to use the new and upgraded version of Edelweiss. I hope this helps!
A while ago, I was asked by a newbie blogger to post a few tips to book blogging (or blogging in general)! As I’ve been here as a blogger for nearly 2 years, I feel as if I have a tinge of understanding towards blogging. Here are some of my own tips for newbie bloggers!
Obviously, I love books and I love blogging but sometimes, I run out of inspiration and I don’t know what to write about, a thing (I’m pretty sure this is a thing) called book blogger’s block.
As we are all human, I’m (pretty) sure we’ve all been though this blogger’s block (and it’s not fun), but as the wonderful person I am, I’m here today to give you some book blog post ideas and maybe some inspiration to share and discuss new book-related things!
Edelweiss is most definitely one of my favorite e-galley sites from which to request titles. In fact, I reviewed some of my very first eARCS from this site, and I’ve come to love it so much! I know many bloggers don’t like it and get confused; I agree, it’s hard to find things you need if you don’t know what you’re looking for.
I didn’t start really using Edelweiss until a few months ago because I had never heard of it, and I had absolutely no idea how to use it. Lucky for you, I decided (with some decision-making help from friends on Twitter) to write up some tips / basic tutorials on how to tackle this baby.
We’ve all had those days, weeks, months, even, when we can’t read anything without feeling bored and unable to take in anything. Fortunately, if you’re in this situation, I’ve accumulated a few of my favorite books that helped me out of some reading slumps of my own.
Without further ado, here are some books that helped me get out of reading slumps and may help you as well!
Productivity. I’m going to admit it: I have so much trouble with productivity. I get distracted, I get bored, I get nervous towards impending deadlines and due dates.
But through my experience in high school, that time where teachers have no mercy on your soul and give you like, 5 projects a week, I have accumulated some incredibly important habits that help me be productive throughout the school year and blogging life.
