Q & A | Ask Me Your Questions For My One Year Blogiversary!

Unfortunately, there’s not going to be much of a full post today, but I decided I wanted to dedicate today to making a post announcing that my blogiversary is very soon! Six months ago, I did a Q & A session to celebrate my sixth month blogiversary, and I want to do the same thing this year as well!

I’ll probably be accepting questions until Monday or Tuesday, since my blogiversary post will be up exactly on my blogiversary (which is Wednesday)! I’ll answer all questions unless they’re, like, super creepy or invasive.

And that’s pretty much it! Just feel free to leave me your questions in the comment section of this post or on Twitter, if that’s what you prefer! I’m looking forward to answering all of them!

7 Common Book Blogging Insecurities (And Why We Should Stop Worrying About Them)
