It’s now official, I’ve ended school for the summer! I would like to share with you some plans I have for the future of this blog, my plans for the holidays and other random things you need to know.
This summer I’ll be redesigning my blog. There will be no change to the name or site address, though the layout with go through a few rearrangements. This is due to my post topics changing. I used to blog all about philosophy and poems. There will still be some of that, but less often. I feel like voicing my opinions takes a lot to try and make it less controversial. I don’t like creating drama!
Most readers are aware that I am now blogging more about books and travel. This topic has reached a broader audience and I’ve made some really good blogging friends through the subject.
Another thing I would like to cover in this post is Bookstagram. I’m not sure how I feel about restarting my Instagram feed because I have some really successful posts. What I may do is private my account for a week whilst I create a new theme and start posting. I currently have lots of landscapes in my feed and I wonder if I should post them just on my blog, and not through another platform. I’ve experimented with bookstagram this past month and the community is so lovely! I do not want to give it up but I do need some more practise.
I find it hard to keep up with my story sometimes, though. Some days I have a lot to show but some days I have nothing. This means I have lack of engagement. Though statistics don’t bother me, I love reaching out to other people.
Edit: my Bookstagram is up and running! I have a new theme that I have been posting to every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
- At the end of July I will be going on camp with my Scout group. This camp lasts for a week.
- I’ll also be going to Llandudno again. I went earlier in the year and I have a record of it here!
- In August I will be going to Menorca, and island at the south of Spain.
All of my travel will be recorded and posted on this blog a couple of weeks after the trip 😊 I’m looking forward to be writing a travel diary again. I haven’t travelled much in this last month so there have been no records for a while…
I haven’t set any book reading goals for the holidays though I have nearly reached my yearly target! I set a goal of fifty books and never knew I’d get quite so far through it. This year has sparked a new motivation for reading a lot more!
I have a post for my bucket list here and am hoping to achieve most of them. It would be really rewarding to have them all ticked off by the end of August!
Since the start of June, I gave up YouTube. It’s has some really great benefits. Though I miss it at times, I realise that I do not need it. I use BBC iPlayer and listen to music, though silence has given me more time to think and do other things. Maybe I won’t re-download YouTube for a while: the break has made my feel healthier about my habits.
Are you already on summer break? What are your plans?
