I HAVE NEWS. I am proud to announce that I have opened a new blog! Readers of my one and beloved Thousand Lives Lived, I have to say goodbye. BYE SO LONG!
I'm kidding. April Fools is tomorrow so I'm kind of in the mood to scare you all! *peeks around* Not like I have any readers anyways. *sad face* I KNOW YOU ALL ARE OUT THERE SOMEWHERE. A Thousand Lives Lived is here to stay, at least for a little while!
Key to Book City is my new blog, on Wordpress' platform, and it's a project that I have been committed to for the longest time. It's just... I never had the time to make it happen. I thought about the idea of opening the glorious thing one hot sunny summer afternoon where I realized how I wanted my blog (one day) to compare to that of Nose Graze or Paper Fury, for example.
- I would like publicity
- I would like to go/feel professional with my own domain, plugins, coding experience...
- I prefer Wordpress' formatting experience
- I feel experienced. I want to save money to go Premium!
There's a thousand reasons why I wanted this to happen. After months of preparations of reviews, themes, ideas and hopes, I opened the blog on Monday. I hope to have it really going by BEA on May 11! For now, the experience is magical.
I co-blogged for some time on a fabulous site, but things got out of hand for me when I couldn't commit to it. I had begun high school, and everything seemed very overwhelming. Now, because of the IB program that I'm in, time management is key and I have gotten it. It will take some work, but it's manageable. It honestly just depends on how much time you have. I know some bloggers who blog on three sites, one including their own. It's amazing!
As for A Thousand Lives Lived, you might be wondering what kinds of posts and things happening you should expect:
- Comments on your blogs (YES, I'm going to be social!)
- Monthly recap posts coming back again
- Cool discussion posts
- A guest post from a friend of mine? (I haven't asked anyone yet.)
- Stacking the Shelves
- Twitter interactions with y'all
- Chicago (BEA) prep
