So I used to do nothing and just sit in my house all day but now I’m actually going to do stuff to expand my blog instead of waiting around?? WHAT??
You may be asking, “Why are you doing this? This is unlike you. Usually the only thing you ever do is lie down and sleep and then maybe sometimes sit at the computer to type up a blog post while begging your sister to give you ideas!”
And here I am to tell you, i don’t know. Apparently I’m semi-productive now?? I’m like a caterpillar- I metamorphose (is that even a word?) into a butterfly!
So… I’m going to start participating in stuff. *SURPRISE* *SURPRISE*. We should totally start throwing confetti or something to CELEBRATE.
So, first off: (these are arranged in no particular order because I actually don’t know what order they should be in welpp)
Also- everything blue is LINKED to their respective pages!
The Summer Comment Challenge
This is the Summer Comment Challenge! It’s hosted by the fabulous Alicia // A Kernel of Nonsense and Lonna // FLYLēf. (Click on the image to be taken to the post if you want to participate in this.) You have to sign-up by May 27th and make a post about it by the end of May.
This takes place over the summer, from June to August. But this post is specifically for the June portion, which I shall be participating in. If I choose to participate during August, I’ll make another post.
What happens is that I’m paired up with another blogger and we have to comment on each other’s blogs for the month. I’m intending to comment 5+ times on their posts.
I have never participated in this before, so I’m excited for this! It sounds like fun and a nice way to find other blogs/more content!
Twitter Book Chats
So… I used to not be addicted to Twitter. NOW I AM.
I started to participate in chats and stuff! (Well, I’ve technically only participated in one before, but whatEVER.)
hint, hint: MY TWITTER IS @blotsofink so MAYBE you should go and FOLLOW ME *wink wink*
If you’ve never done live Twitter chats, you SHOULD. It’s a great way to meet new people and talk (or in my case, flail awkwardly) about books. Their main Twitter chat is usually on the hashtag #BBTC so you should check for the next chat!
If there are other bookish live Twitter chats then feel free to put them down in the comments!
Guest Posts/An Interview
Neither of these have been posted yet, and I’ll put on the links when they do, but I highly recommend you to check both of these blogs out!
I will be interviewed Elise//The Book Forums at some point… so you should go and check out her reviews!
Book Cons (!!!)
I’m SO hyped because I’ve never ever been to a book convention before! Okay, first off, I’m going to two of them (kind of??)
Click on their titles to be taken to their official websites!
So this is actually an ONLINE book convention*! It takes place while the actual BEA/Book Expo America convention takes place, so they’re both in conjunction! You’re supposed to be able to access it from your ‘armchair’, get it? Haha. You can register for this here. I’m not sure if they have a deadline, though.
Basically, this is for bloggers who can’t attend Book Expo America, whether you can’t travel or it’s too expensive. For me, it’s the latter #brokebookworm
There are live Twitter chats, Instagram challenges, and discussions about books. Here’s the schedule. There are also giveaways! This convention lets you connect with publishers and authors, too! It happens from May 31st-June 2nd

I am SOOO hyped for this! I am going to Book Con this year with my sisters on Saturday, June 4th!
And… I may or may not be desperately searching up sites to help me prepare for going to this convention. Apparently it’s chaotic and crazy (but these are all posts about the 2014 BookCon so idk??) but well.. I’m fine with that. (kindaaa)
Chaotic + Crazy pretty much = me.
So… yeah! I’m going to be DOING stuff this month/next month. It’s interesting. I’m probably going to TRY to keep this up and keep doing things like this.
How often do you like doing things that are productive?
