6 Blogging Blunders That Will Hold You Back

I remember when I first starting blogging. When I think back on it, I feel like I’m remembering that awkward lanky teenaged part of my life. Only more people were able to to witness it. And I didn’t have the awkward cuteness that goes with being a teen to help cover up all the wrong […]

3 Reasons Reading Aloud Is Essential

As sad as it is, summer must come to an end. Can I admit something? I’m not terribly sad to see it go. I mean, sure. I’ll miss the lazy days that I’ve been able to enjoy here and there but I’m seriously craving the old routine. And not just because it means I’ll have a […]
