Feminist Fridays: Carrie Hope Fletcher

Today I'd like to talk about one my favorite people to watch on Youtube: singer, actress, blogger, and vlogger Carrie Hope Fletcher. I've been a fan of her videos for years (since I was in middle school?!) and it's been amazing to watch her grow and develop her channel over such a long time. I want to …

The Happy Videos Tag

Hello, hello!! I'm super excited about today's tag because it was actually created by my awesome friend Christina @ The Penniless Optimist. She often talks about her "happy videos," or the videos that she watches whenever she needs a bit of a pick-me-up. As a way to spread some smiles she decided to make this Happy …

Are Book Hauls “Meaningless” Content? | Discussion

When I saw that Ariel Bissett made a video titled "Why Do Booktubers Make Book Hauls?" I was immediately intrigued. To tell you the truth, I had been asking myself the same question for quite some time. Book hauls have sort of been a controversial topic in the online bookish community as of late. Some people claim …

ON THE OTHER SIDE by Carrie Hope Fletcher | Review

I've been a fan of Carrie Hope Fletcher's Youtube channel since middle school, back in the days of wearing crocs and starting stories I would never finish writing and pretending that I could run fast enough to be on the cross-country team (fun fact: I could not). Not only have we both grown older since …

How fast do I read? | Discussion

Usually when people realize how many books I read in an average week/month/year, their immediate response is to exclaim: "WOW. You must read really fast." This remark has always struck me as rather odd because I don't picture myself as a very fast reader; rather, I've always though that the reason I read so much is that …

Do we prioritize “shareable” reading? | Discussion

As you can probably tell from some of my previous discussion posts, I get a lot of my inspiration from Rosianna Halse Rojas, one of my favorite Youtubers. Early in March she posted a video called "The Currency of Sharing" in which she discusses our frequent desire to share everything we do online. Even more …

How Do You Prevent Blogging Burnout? | Discussion

A few months ago Rosianna Halse Rojas created a video called Knowing When To Stop in which she discusses the feeling of not knowing when to stop working and striving to be as productive as possible. As someone who has been thought of as an “overachiever” throughout her entire life, she explains how challenging it can …

Musical Mondays: Corey Gray

Corey Gray is this fantastic singer on Youtube who does covers of songs. As well as singing, he also plays the guitar, piano, drums, etc. His covers are really cool to listen to because a lot of the time he takes faster songs and makes them slower, or takes pop songs and gives them an …

The Tea Chronicles

The Tea Chronicles is an awesome short film created by Charlie McDonnell. He is one of my favorite Youtubers, and his channel is called charlieissocoollike. The topics of his videos vary widely, however they are always, to quote the Ninth Doctor, fantastic. This short film is witty, clever, suspenseful, and overall very entertaining. Who knew …
