What Makes Something Canon – Let’s Talk Bookish

Yes I’m a terrible blogger, I know. I had 2 weeks of freedom, and I have not drafted anything, or posted consistently, or even really planned out what to post. I just have the vague idea that I need to do my 2020 wrap ups, some reviews, some fun posts, and also some baking so I can do a post on that, but I’m not actually doing anything. Oh, and the comments that I need to respond to. I started working on that, but now I just have tabs upon tabs with things I have to comment on or reply to.

I think I’m in a somewhat blogging slump. I just don’t have the motivation to write more than necessary right now.

There. My confession is out. Lol, I need to get a grip on things, but I don’t feel like pushing myself to. It’s a weird and annoying feeling.

Anyway, it’s Friday, and that means we’re back with another Let’s Talk Bookish discussion. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by me and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.

Today’s topic is: What Makes Something Canon?

This was Dani’s topic for this month, and I gotta be honest, I didn’t know what canon meant. And the internet is surprisingly not being so helpful, but I think I get the gist of it – at least enough to write today’s post. And hopefully I’ll learn more from everyone else’s post!

Let’s Talk Bookish | An introduction to my first weekly meme

Welcome dear friends! How are you doing today? I really hope that your week has been spectacular. (As you can tell, I have been introduced to the wonderful world of changing text size and I’m loving it!!)

So, I’ve thought about this for a super long time.

It’s taken me forever to publish this!!

I’m really nervous, and I’m not sure if it’ll work.

But here we go!

I’m going to start a weekly bookish meme called, Let’s Talk Bookish. As you all know, I have done exactly 2 discussion posts since I started blogging, despite my promises to do more. And in a bid to force myself to write, and also to encourage others to write their own discussions, I’m going to post questions/topics at the beginning of each month and you can choose to answer them every week, or every two weeks, or even once a month if you want. This way, we can all link together and read each other’s posts about the topic and hopefully have an engaging and amazing discussion across many blogs.

This is going to be on Friday’s, starting from next week. All you need to do is write your own post in response to the question/topic and link back to me so that we can all find each other’s posts!

If you have topic suggestions, PLEASE send them to me through my Contact page, or fill out the Google Form below with your ideas! I’d really appreciate your help!
