Hello & happy spring, or happy fall if you’re in the southern hemisphere!
🎉 I just celebrated my 11th blog anniversary. March 17th ☘️ marked eleven years of Book of Secrets. For some reason, I vividly remember the moment I hit “publish blog” and then immediately had second thoughts about the whole thing. Suddenly, I looked down and already had my first follower, which inspired me to keep going. (I remember who it was! We still follow each other on Instagram. Sorry, I probably tell that story every year, lol.)
Speaking of blogging, WordPress made a switch this week and tried to force me to use their new-ish “block” post editor, lol. That’s a huge NOPE from me. I hate it. After spending an hour trying to recreate my very simple post style in Block (which was a fail), I googled how to change the admin page to default to the Classic editor. 😅 Whew, I was relieved to get it back. I know it’s probably just delaying the inevitable, so I’ll enjoy it while it lasts. Did I mention I hate the new Block editor? 😂
✋🏻 This is the Five Finger Book Challenge! Looked fun, so I had to join in.
👍🏻 A book I give a thumbs up to: CONJURE WOMEN — Loved it!
☝🏻 A book I’d recommend: WILDFLOWER HILL — It’s been a favorite for many years.
🖕🏻 A book I really didn’t like: BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME — Nothing wrong with it per se, just not my cup of tea.
💍 A book with a character I’d marry: Mr. Rochester — Yes, Jane Eyre’s Mr. Rochester. Sorry. 😂
🤙🏻 A book I promise to read soon: THE HOUSE IN THE CERULEAN SEA — I’ve only heard wonderful things…can’t wait to read it!
