What’s going on in my life? + Announcement!

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to write my heart out a little bit and combine it with an impromptu idea I came up with, credits go to Bayance (and her sister!). She’s going out of town for a bit and letting her sister write a couple of post ideas and I was like WHOA. Newsflash- I’m having a bit of a blogging block… so this will totally help me actually get posts published!

Basically, do any of you -AMAZING, I might add- people want to guest post for me? It’s promo for you and relaxation for me.

You know what- that wasn’t a great overview. What I meant was that you can get exposure for your blog- lots of smaller blogs produce GREAT content but don’t get as much traffic (haha I’m a small blog but I mean under 50 followers) so this could work out well for you!

(also an added bonus is that I don’t have to work my butt off and try to stay on top of life and blogging. jusstt a bonus)

Okkk and so we begin talking about my life!

Um, so it’s okay right now.

What’s going on right now?

Last-last-last week I had my writing workshop, and I’ve talked about that already but it was SO fun and I’m actually working on my novel now! Also. They had Subway and Jamba Juice in the vicinity SO. A++++ 😂

Last-last week I had a week of vocal music workshop and that was fun- we had class for five hours a day, five days a week, and we learned, um 21 songs?? Like WHOA that’s a lottt.

And this week was a LOT of singing since I’m practicing some of those 21 songs for a performance- today!! Wish me luck!! (welp, by the time you see this it’ll be three days late. oh welll.)

(btw I’m watching Sierra Schultzzie and Safiya Nygaard vids right now while typing this…)

What’s coming up soon?

School will start in less than a month 😦 so yeahhh and I’m really not feeling this summer. It felt like I didn’t do much and definitely didn’t complete most of the plans that I had in mind. I wanted to dive into self-care since it was kinda important to me… really the only progress that I made was actually putting on lotion a couple times a day without fail.

But, one of the highlights of my summer was being able to spend time with Vaishnavi, my blogging friend but mostly in real life friend. We went hiking, played badminton, went to the pond and did this AWESOME collab, and I think I really got to know her more. For sure we’re closer since school ended.

And. School’s starting pretty darn soon and I’m NOT happy about that. Last year was a whirlwind and crazy and definitely not entirely great. Also, this year is supposed to have a much larger workload… oofff.

Where is this blog going?

Honestly, this is the big question here.

We hit 50 followers end of May and 100 followers end of June and we’re definitely growing! It’s amazing to have this tightly knit family over here and I’m 200% not quitting blogging any time soon, so don’t worry if you were thrown off by the question.

But is this a book blog? I feel like I’ve been posting more and more book-related content these past few months and I’m struggling to find content that isn’t book-related. It feels like I’m diving into a little hole and don’t have the energy to pull myself back up?? Bad metaphor, but you get the point.

I think I’m going to make a decision. I can call myself a book blog, but also a lifestyle blog and an in-general-stuff blog and that shouldn’t limit my creative decisions of posting ideas. I’m still going to post whatever the heck I feel like posting and I know none of you are judging, but it’s like you feel like you should fall into a category, right?

Well, life, too bad.

This is a book blog. A lifestyle blog. A random blog run by a teen girl who’s just sharing her thoughts, which happen to be largely book related.

Thank you to all of you guys who are helping me in this journey. There are SO many of you guys, but lemme just give a shout-out to those people who always always always read my posts~

Becky. Becky is so nice and sarcastic and talented at writing and her Arthurian series is coming to a close probably sometime soon and I’ve really loved reading it so it’s like mixed feelings over here. *shruggy face* But Becky is the. awesomest. and THANK YOU SO MUCH! Also YES we need more books set in UK but not necessarily England.

Sophie. Okay, hands down, Soph is awesome. Inside joke- I totally want to see Little Sophie with pigtails!!! She’s an amazing author and I love how her blog has grown and changed! (I stalked her old posts XD) AND HER INSTA IS SO AESTHETIC AHH. Sophie thank you so much for talking to me about life and your uplifting comments!!

Emma. Emma from AFCTL is so fun to talk to and she without-fail comments on every post I make ever since she found this blog. I never even got a notif that says she’s following, but I literally don’t care 😂 It’s so amazing that awesome people in this world exist and even though I have to admit that I don’t always comment on her posts because she’s on blogspot and it’s so much more confusing, (excuses, I knowww) I will make a conscious attempt to change, Emma! Also, I only get a weekly email, so if you could do something about that, it would be great…

El. Haha, another shout-out; whoops! El doesn’t always comment on my posts, but you know what? Who even cares? I consider her probably my closest blogging friend (I mean, Vaish doesn’t count since I know her in real life) and we text often on Hangouts about totally random things like Love Island. And neon animal print fashions.

This is over a thousand words now… whoops…

Thanks for reading, everyone! Have a wonderful day!!

    But awwww thank you! You’re my closest blogging friend tooooooooo! I know you’re always there for me & that means a lot! I’d also love to guest write a post for you even though I’m not a small blogger either 😂 but if you ever need to fall back on someone when no one else is offering (sure it’ll never happen but…) then just email/text/comment me (comment me?!) and I’d love to work one out for you! 💕💕
    Also, don’t feel pressured to have to put yourself in a box – I love you just the way you are!

  2. Woah! Thank you so much! Yes I honestly love this blog so much! Who cares about topics? Just write what you want to write! I didn’t realise I wasn’t following! (Please accept my offerings of apologies! I am hoenstly so so so so so sorry!) I use a spreadsheet to track who’s blogs I like the most because I don’t filter through my notifs and my emails 😦

  3. Well it certainly sounds like you have been super busy recently– you are slaying it!! (Ok I don’t actually use the word slay that much in life but it fitted here 😂)
    I hope the singing performance went well!! 💙
    Aw.. going back to school is the worse but I’m sending you best wishes for that!!
    Yay I’m glad you are writing about lifestyle and thoughts that you have. You should always write what you are passionate about and you shouldn’t limit yourself so I am excited to read all of your posts!! I can’t wait to see where your blog will go!! 💙

    Ahh.. Thank you so much for mentioning me– I am so honoured and of course I love reading your posts!! 💙 Maybe I will have to share a picture of little me in pigtails at one point just for you!!

  4. Ack thanks for the mention you’re such a beautiful person
    Although, fortunately for me and unfortunately for everyone else, my Arthurian series will probably not come to an end for a loong time. Le Morte D’Arthur is such a brick of a book XD
    And good luck with school! And I feel you about not being ready XD

  6. adi, i hope everything went well in your performance! 21 songs is a looooot! but i’m sure everything went well 😊
    also, i love you’re watching sierra on youtube! i absolutely adore her channel. i found her out when i was about to travel to the US and her tips on where to shop were so helpful during my time there; plus i love the fact she spread body positivity in the fashion world that is so dominated by skinny-brandy-melville-size girls.
    i don’t think you should worry too much about making your blog one-niche only. there are multiple successful bloggers out there who blog a little bit about everything; and i definitely love reading more life-style related content every once in a while.
    hope you have an amazing august, aditi! wishing you all the luck on the new school year!

    1. Yes, thank you!! It went pretty well 😊
      Ooh yay I found a fellow fan!!! I love her channel- I’m apparently into fashion and style vids, haha! It’s great that she’s so body positive and honestly pretty inspiring. She even took a Victoria’s Secret photoshoot but body positive and she was really emotional. 🙂 Haha, I’m actually a skinny (SUPER skinny) girl, so I’ve actually had the opposite problems with finding clothes. I’ve been skinny-shamed on several occasions before 😑.
      Thank you! Yes, I’ve pretty much decided on multiple niches now- let’s see how I hold up 😂.
      Have an amazing August as well!!!
