Well, I have finally done it. I have finally launched my own blog!
I have quite literally been working on this since May 2016, but due to other arrangements, class assignments and life in general getting in the way, a lot of breaks were taken in the construction of this website. I had originally planned to launch the blog back on September 19th, which happened to be my bookstagram account’s second birthday, but clearly that did not happen.
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Lauren and I’m known as FictionTea in the online book community, specifically on Instagram and Twitter. Being able to talk to fellow readers about books has been an absolute dream and for the past year I have wanted to expand FictionTea into an official book blog where I can hopefully reach and interact more with other bookworms. Over on my Instagram I do book reviews, bookish product reviews, book hauls, bookish DIYS, book discussions, etc and I’m hoping to bring that all here as well as continuing to post on my Instagram.
I’m incredibly excited to finally start posting content on here for you guys, I have so many things planned including: Bookmark and other bookish DIYs, reading snack recipes, book reviews, read-a-longs…Basically, a lot of stuff. I hope you all enjoy my posts, I’m going to aim to post 2 – 3 times a week depending on my College work when I start back.
I also want to wish you all a Happy New Year! And, an absolutely wonderful 2017. I hope it brings you all nothing but happiness and good times.
I tend to set myself New Years Resolutions. However, without fail, I always fail at my resolutions. So, this year I have decided to set myself a word of the year, a word to live by (I did make a thread on Twitter about this).
That word is; Discipline.
Now you’re probably thinking, what? Discipline? Lighten up Lauren.
Hear me out guys. As a creative person, I have always been one to start things, little projects that cost me time and money to carry out. But, before I finish them I get new ideas and then that cycle starts again which leads to more money being spent and then nothing to gain from it, because I never finish them. This year I want to discipline myself to finish what I start. Whether that be TV shows, a book I’m writing, a project I’m starting, etc.
This also applies to me being so damn lazy. I’m going to discipline myself to get up and do something instead of laying in my bed till noon on my days off from college.
I’ve been applying this ‘word for the year’ thing since I started my Bullet Journal and it really is working for me so I hope it continues to as we start 2017.
What are your New Years Resolutions? Leave me a comment below!
Happy Reading, folks!
