If this post wasn’t part of the Internet and was actually happening live, this would be the moment I’d cut the red ribbon and declare the new Queen of Contemporary website officially open! Although knowing me I’d probably drop the scissors on my feet or trip over the ribbon…
I’ve gone through quite a lot of personal changes so far this year, the most notable one being that I’ve finished with secondary school! My exams are over and all I’ve got to do now is wait for my results and it’s been great waving goodbye to that part of my life – whoever says your school days are the best part of your life is obviously lying! I’ve grown up with my blog and so I wanted to re-design it to reflect who I am now – and after slaving away at my computer for a few days and even coding (gasp!) I’ve finally got it to how I want it.
I’ve missed out on a lot of blogging time through school but now that I have the summer ahead of me, writing posts is going to be my priority. It’s been strange not updating as much as I’d like!
A new feature I LOVE is that you can now click the heart at the bottom of the post to show your love for it! This will help me to know which posts you’re loving the most so that I can write more just like it. Go on… give it a go now!
So what can you expect to see?
Queen of Contemporary will be used as the base for all my online projects – my YouTube channel, #ukyachat on Twitter and of course book discussion. This means that I’ll be cross-posting videos that are posted on my channel here with added content and there will be summaries each week for each #ukyachat.
As well as this, I’ll also be posting weekly book reviews, book discussions and recommendations, as well as interviews with authors, bloggers and book industry insiders, and even more!
It’s more important than ever to support your favourite blogs – coverage of children’s and YA books is down and has taken a major blow in the past month with the closure of the Guardian’s Children Books site. Your continued support means the world to me – thank you for reading my tiny book-filled corner of the Internet!
