How to Get People to Follow Your Blog! (A Less Embarrassing Version of Part One)

A little more than a year ago, I published a post about how to get followers on your blog, and, like everything I posted before 2020, I cringe whenever I remember it.

Even though I agree to some extent with everything I said, I definitely could’ve phrased some things better and formatted the post nicely. So today I’m revisiting the post and giving my fresh perspective on the things I wrote and some extra advice.

Reacting to Book Twitter’s Unpopular Opinions, Part Two // Friends to Lovers, 3-Star Ratings, & More!

A few months ago, I made a post reacting to book twitter’s unpopular opinions.

And I’m so happy you guys liked it!! A few commenters suggested that I make a part two, so here it is. Thank you so much to everyone who sent me their opinions when I asked on Twitter. ❤ (I tried to include everyone’s in this post, but I had to exclude some because I just couldn’t think of anything to say in response or the opinion was really similar to another one I got.)

A Guide to Stanning Book Blogs // What Are Book Blogs, How & Why You Should Support Book Bloggers, & More

When I die, I want “Book bloggers deserve more appreciation” on my gravestone.

From some white girl on BookTok calling reading book blogs stupid, to the fact that publishers usually ignore book bloggers when looking for bookish influencers to work with, I think we can all agree that the blogosphere doesn’t get as much visibility as it deserves. If you want to read more about the underappreciation of book bloggers, please read this post and this post, both written by the wonderful Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books.

Midyear Goals Check-in, aka COVID-19 Ruining My Plans

Honestly, is it really a Caitlin post if it’s not late?

I know it’s not the middle of the year anymore, but I had a bunch of middle of the year posts to publish before this one, so here we are. I made some resolutions in the beginning of the year, and it’s time to check in on how I’m doing with them! I’ve forgotten about some of these, and I know I completely failed others, so this should be fun…
