1. Slow blogging. Its a thing and I'm all over it. And yes, it is exactly what it sounds like. Blogging at a slower pace. This means that I will keep blogging, but I won't be stressed out over making sure I have a post up every day. I won't worry about reviewing every single book I read. And, I won't wonder why I have zero comments on some of my posts. Slow blogging is all about finding balance and peace with regards to blogging. I love it and I'm staying smack dab in it. Its all about slow blogging here at A Bookish Way of Life.
2. Paris in July.
Its back, but not in full swing. There will be posts about all things French in July, but there is not an actual event anymore. Tamara (the host of Paris in July) has decided to keep it "low-key" this year. Meaning that she'll be posting her French connections during the month of July and is inviting us to join her. We can leave links to our posts in the comments section on her blog, Thyme for Tea, or on our blogs. I love the stress-free feel and plan on joining in. In fact, I already have my first book picked out:
Okay, so I've seen this "#OneBookJuly" everywhere lately. People are gearing up and I'm wondering what all the fuss is about. So, I looked it up. Apparently, this is a challenge where you choose one planner/journal to use for the month of July. You put everything in that one book - appointments, schedules, journal entries, drawings, ideas, etc.. It sounds like a good idea, so I'm going to give it a go. I have a huge planner and I have tons of journals. And yet, I keep looking for a better planner or a new journal. Ugh. Its an addiction. Anyhow, I'm thinking that I want to try and use my new Midori journal as my go-to for July. Wish me luck!
