And so it goes

I have seen this over at Etsy (click here for details) and I always think that’s how I want to feel in 2018 

Years ago, I had a blog that I loved so much and then I suddenly did not love it that much anymore for a whole host of reasons. Over the years since, I have started and abandoned many blogs because nothing felt quite right. Either I set myself too tight a remit to blog about (e.g. only about photography, only about food etc.) or too wide a remit (anything which normally meant nothing).

For the past year, I have been making booktube videos, you are excused if you don’t know what that means. I had no idea this existed before I stumbled upon it in summer 2016. Essentially, it is a corner on youtube (not a literal corner, more an imaginary one) where people like myself talk about books. And after watching others talk about books for a few months, I decided that I wanted to be part of this and so – very awkwardly – I started to make videos.

In my normal life, I don’t really talk much about me making videos, mostly because I think most people I know would not or don’t get it. Some do get it though, e.g. my husband. And I credit the booktube community for making 2017, a really special year. I has been the longest time for me to have such wonderful conversations about books (in the comments you see). Love it.

I shall continue the booktube venture, but I wanted to occassional write about what I am reading, track my online bookclub adventure (Read Around the World Bookclub) and also my travels near and far, my walks, my vegan lifestyle etc.

You are welcome to come along.

Disclaimer: I am fond of quotes on pretty pictures. So don’t complain later. You were warned.
