Just your typical boring Tuesday announcements….

Well, I suppose they’re not really typical. Ahem. Hey guys, it’s Amy! Recently, I read Cait @ Paper Fury’s post about why/how she’s going on hiatus. And I thought to myself, “I couldn’t ever take an intentional hiatus.” And then I thought…. whyever not? I mean, stats… And blogging is my life… But other than that, I have no particular need to blog every single day, every week, every month, or at all. I’M NOT LEAVING FOR GOOD. DON’T WORRY. But I’ve just realized that it took me about two weeks to read as many books, and I’m too tired and I don’t have enough time to blog. I don’t have the writing juice. And I would like to work on actual writing- ahem, story writing. (This is real writing, right?) And reading. And setting up all of my Instagram photos for October- I’m actually going to try to go the whole month this time! Not to mention Twitter. Or the huge disappointment that I will explain in just a minute. I no longer have all the time in the world and absolutely no schedule. I have SCHOOL. And I’m working on Blogwarts right now as well! Can I do all of these at the same time? Well, I would like to think so. I believe I can. But I have to get a handle on it all, and I have to WANT to do it. I don’t have any time whatsoever to do things I don’t want to do, so I want to narrow it down to the things I do. STILL NOT SAYING I WANT TO LEAVE THE BLOG. I just need to chill out a bit. And thus, I’m announcing a hiatus! I plan on coming back on October 1st, but it could be a little later if I start enjoying myself too much.😉 I’ll be starting work on the Blog Ahead Challenge regardless. But I just need a little break. Continue reading

I wish blogging was my job. Too bad it can’t be… Right??

Making Money from Blog.jpg

Hey guys, it’s Amy! I feel like I’ve seen this topic discussed a lot lately in the blogosphere. It’s seen as kind of taboo, because of some idiots who messed up, but that should not reflect on the entire blogosphere. Most of us are the kindest, sweetest, most innocent people you’ll ever meet, and it’s not fair for other people, as well as some bloggers, to think that that will happen with everyone in every situation.

IT’S MY VERY FIRST WRAP-UP. AKA AN EPIC FAIL.

august-wrap-up

Okay. Wow. *clears throat* Let’s do a proper introduction, shall we?

Hey guys, it’s Amy! I’m a LITTLE more than a LITTLE nervous? I’m not really sure why. But I feel like this is a huge moment. I’ve never had enough to talk about in my month to do a monthly wrap-up, and I always see people doing them. Anyhoo… I suppose I should share some of my stats for the month with you!

SHARING THE LOVE. JUST TOSSING IT OUT LIKE CANDY.

Shoutout Sunday off.

Hey guys, it’s Amy! I know I haven’t done a Shout-Out Sunday in a while (my last one was at the beginning of August, yikes!), but since then, I’ve just kept collecting posts and things to share. NOT A GOOD COMBO. Let’s get started, shall we? Continue reading

Oliver, Jumpy, a fairy, and- oh look! Magic berries!

Hello again! It’s Amy, and I’m continuing with the review requests! My last requested review was for both Elphie and Dad Go On An Epic Adventure and Bravo and Ephie by Hagit R. Oron & Or Oron. That double review was the first time I had ever reviewed a picture book, so hopefully my second time will be better!
