Writing ARC Requests + Why It’s a Dying Art

I think you all probably know that I have hadย shockingly little success with writing ARC requests, despite me being lucky enough to receive a lot of ARCs in general. If you haven't read my transparency post about stats (find it here!), I talk a little bit about requesting physical ARCs and my success rate. Which … Continue reading Writing ARC Requests + Why It’s a Dying Art

Sprinkles of Dreams

Hi everyone, and welcome to another brilliant guest post on my blog! ๐Ÿ’Ž

Iโ€™m extremely excited for you to read this incredible, insightful post today, written by the one and only Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads.

When I first started blogging, Vickyโ€™s blog was one of the first ones I discovered, and I was (and still am) so in awe of the way she talks about relevant and important issuesโ€”so of course sheโ€™s one of the first people I reached out to about a guest post, when I thought of introducing theย Sprinkles of Dreams Blogger Featureย on my blog.

When I asked about whether people wanted to see this post, I definitely didn't understand just how much personal information it would involve.

(Also, I contemplated … Continue reading It’s Been More Than a Year–So What’s Changed?: A Transparency Post feat. Stats & (Too Much?) Honesty
