Thursday Blog Trot #9

“When the weather outside is frightful, blog hopping is so delightful.” Yeah, I woke up to there being 3-4 inches of snow on the ground this morning. Seriously, this weather is so weird. It’s still beautiful to look at! My daughter and I were listening […]

Thursday Blog Trot #7

I seriously can't believe how quick the week flies by! It's Thursday again, and time for another Thursday Blog Trot!

I really don’t know where the time goes. It seems like I was just writing last week’s TBT post yesterday. Alas, here we are–already the first week into April. Did you know that yesterday I woke up and we had 6 inches of snow on the ground!? Yeah, I was utterly confused.

…and everyone else in Michigan. Anyways, I digress.

Ultimate Bookstagram Hasttag Guide

So, I know I featured a post from Sushma at Spunky Reads last week, but her stuff is just too good not to share consecutively! She took the time to put together an amazing compilations of the best hashtags to use for instagram posts for book bloggers. Not only that, she breaks down the different categories of hashtags and how they are used. If you are a bookstagrammer, be sure to check this post out!

Writer's Den

Chloe from Book Dragons started a weekly series called Writer’s Den discussing writing tips, tricks, and anything related to writing. Working on a YA novel myself, I’m really looking forward to tracking this series to get some insight and inspiration!

Blog Repellent

Sophie from Bookwyrming Thoughts put together an interesting and insightful post about points that drive her away from a person’s blog in How To Drive People Away From Your Blog. She brings up some great suggestions for bloggers to consider for the layout of their blogs. 

Mood Reading

Kristen over at Bookish Musing breaks down and discusses exactly what “mood reading” is. Honestly, this is a pretty new term for myself, so I thought this was an insightful post! Be sure to check it out at What Exactly Is Mood Reading?


Merv at Merv Reads also posted a discussion post breaking down the commonly used term “DNF” aka “Did Not Finish” and the odd way it is phrased. If you are looking for a bit of a giggle, be sure to check out this post here!


Thursday Blog Trot #6

Thursday Blog Trot #6

I think ya’ll know what THursday means on my blog now. It’s Thursday Blog Trot time! Oh yeah, we are heading to some different blogs today, and some pretty cool ones that that!  This week, I’ve had a lot on my mind regarding blogging. While […]

Thursday Blog Trot #5

Thursday Blog Trot #5

Well, it’s a late night for me this Thursday. Sorry I’m getting this post up so late. I’ve been working a lot of overtime lately, and it’s been eating into my blogging time a lot. Either way, my schedule doesn’t stop other book bloggers from […]

Thursday Blog Trot #4

Thursday Blog Trot #4

Why hello there, and happy Thursday to you!

This post totally snuck up on me this week. Since the time change, I’ve been so off with time and day of the week, that I didn’t realize that it was Thursday until…Thursday. So, sorry for getting this up a bit late!

Negative Reviews

Dun dun dunnnnn! Yeah, it’s a scary term in the book blogging world. However, it’s a healthy topic to discuss, as well! 

This post, Negative Reviews, Spread Them or Nahh? was written and shared by the lovely Vee over at Vee Reading.  Discussing negative book reviews, and if they should be shared with others and on other social media platforms is a debatable topic. While negative reviews aren’t always pleasent, sometimes they are necessary. Be sure to check out this post and give some feedback with your thoughts on this topic! 

Creating Content

Sophia over at Bookwyrming Thoughts had a great post about why us book bloggers (and bloggers in general) keep creating content. In other words, we blog a lot about books and related topics. Why Do We Create Content? Why Do We Continue Creating Content? discusses not only the reason behind being creative on our blogs, but also the benefits from it. Thanks for keeping me on my toes, Sophia!

Writing Reviews from Experience

Anthony over at Keep Reading Forward posted What I’ve Learned After 100 Reviews.  I don’t know about you, but writing 100 reviews is a huge accomplishment! (Congrats, Anthony!) I think there is some valuable material here, especially maintaining your singular voice as a blogger. Remembering that writing reviews takes time, it’s important to allow yourself time to write quality reviews, and not rush through them. As book bloggers, we have a huge opportunity to help steer readers towards or away from books, so writing with a clear mind is key. 

Changing Scenery: Migration from Blogger to (free) WordPress

Lauren from Northern Plunder wrote a valuable guest post on AvalinahsBooks page about her experience and process with transitioning her blog from Blogger to WordPress. Has anyone else out there had to make the painful transition to a different platform? I’m still in this process. If you are considering moving your Blogger to free WordPress, be sure to check this out!

Attending a Book Signing

I was so excited when I came across this post by Sophie at Beware of the Reader. I’ve never been to a big book signing event–but hope to attend one someday! In her “Blogging Bolder” series, she wrote a 101 guide to preparing and attending book signing! Seeing how I know nothing about how they work, this post gives a step-by-step guide to book signings and was so insightful! I’ll be postmarking this post for future reference for sure!

Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge, experience, and opinions everyone! Be sure to show these bloggers some love by checking out their posts!

Thursday Blog Trot #3

Thursday Blog Trot #3

Happy Thursday, everyone! Just a spot of good news – in case you didn’t know, Thursday is basically Friday, so, it’s basically the weekend! I have great logic, yes I do. Along with the fact that it’s practically the weekend, it’s also International Women’s Day! […]

Thursday Blog Trot #2

Thursday Blog Trot #2

It’s Thursday already, and boy, are there some great posts to share this week! I don’t know about you, but I’ve felt like I was slammed  this week with blogging. I really didn’t have much time to blog-hop, which was really disappointing. Even so, I came […]

Thursday Blog Trot #1 Let’s Get This Thing Started!

Thursday Blog Trot #1 Let’s Get This Thing Started!

It's Thursday, and it's time to start a new Meme!

What is Thursday Blog Trot? Well, since I don’t have all the time in the world to spend following my lovely fellow book bloggers, bookstagrammers, booktubers, and the like, I wanted to dedicate some time each and every Thursday to provide shout-outs to these peeps, and the hard work they spend each and every day to run their blogs, read books, write reviews, and so much more!

If you like the sounds of this Thursday Blog Trot Meme, feel free to use it, along with the image provided! Be sure to comment below if you do, I’d love to see your posts and all of your blogger friends’ hard work!

Without further adieu, let's see what everyone has been up to!


The #NewBloggers 101 is a Discord group headed up by Evelina at AvalinahsBooks.space. She puts in a HUGE amount of effort to coordinate and provide amazing content for fellow book bloggers to learn from, starting with the basics. Each Friday, she or other bloggers from the group posts a self-help guide to all different topics. Her post from last Friday was:

This is the third part in a series on social media and networking. See the previous posts in theis series by expanding the list below!

This post is so helpful in regards to organizing how to manage posting, and keeping up across all platforms. While there isn’t a best way to do this, Evelina gives one way that works for her, and it is certainly helpful! I discovered the wonderful (and free!) Buffer.com which is one way to control social media posts, and have incorporated using that each and every day. I’d highly recommend checking these posts out. I mean, they are free guides and tips!

Bookstagram Queen

If you are a photoholic and bookaholic,  Sushma’s post on Her Bookstagram Journey is what you need in your life! 

Sushma is a book blogger over at SpunkyReads and has a stunning Instagram account!

She tells about her story and what got her into Bookstagram, and her journey until today. For being someone who has been (very) inconsistent with posting on Instagram, I find this material highly valuable and insightful!

Free Blogging Tips!

If you are new to blogging, Kristina over at Books-and-Dachshunds has some great tips in her  post: 

She has several very practical suggestions, but also focuses on individuality. The most valuable tip I got from her was to “not forget why I started blogging.” It’s so easy to get caught up in keeping track of all that needs to be done, and forget to love what I’m doing in the meantime. I’d encourage you to check out her post if you need a little bit of encouragement!

Style Matters

Aimee over at AimeeAlways has a lovely post on How to Style Book Reviews. She gets into the nitty-gritty and helps break down some formatting (including HTML!) that she uses while designing her book review posts. It’s no wonder why her blog looks so amazing! Any blogger can find some useful information in this post, so be sure to check it out!

Bookworms Explained

Last, but certainly not least is a post from a series of posts called Bookworms Explained, by Chloe. She’s the lovely blogger behind bookdragons247. I love these posts! If you are looking for something light-hearted, funny reads, be sure to check this series out! The focus is to explain bookworms and how they think. But let’s be honest, that’s a lot easier said than done! 

Here’s a list of her past posts in the series if you’d like to get caught up!

That's it for this week! Be sure to stop by each Thursday to discover more wonderful posts! Also, show these bloggers some love and leave them a comment, follow, or like! Until next week.
