Most Loved Posts at Girlxoxo This Year #AYearofFaves

A Year of Faves

Girlxoxo.com was going on pretty well for about 3 years before I decided to start afresh. Time and other commitments necessitated a change, so I removed all my posts over the summer of 2015 and started over with a slightly different format. Things didn’t change much, but what you’ll see now is a few less posts, still lots of bookishness but in the form of reading lists. There are no more individual reviews, but a few more digital lifehacks and the way apps and software make life a little easier. S

Of course, I reposted some of my favorite content from the past while adding fresh new content. My first post back was a repost – On Only Reading Books You Can Relate To … Why? This is about why I choose to read books with characters that are different from me (and my circle) – diverse books – and books set in different places.

If I only read books “I can relate to” I would never read …

– Books written by men
– Books with vampires, werewolf, zombie, shape-shifters etc.
– Books written by someone that is not Black
– Books with Gay characters
– Books narrated by young adults (or kids)

And then there’s the blog events hosted here at Girlxoxo.com. I dubbed October #WickedGoodReads which was all about my love affair with dark, creepy reads. I know that’s not everyone’s thing, but if you can’t relate to {The Zombie Edition} …maybe I can entice you to try at least 1 of the books from the list of  4 Haunted House Books You Should NOT Read When You’re Home Alone 🙂

Wicked Good Reads

The other blog event is #AMonthof Faves which I co-host along with Traveling with T and Estella’s Revenge a. In December, we focus on looking back at your life and your blog. Writing prompts are posted in advance, and we have a fantastic community posting their fave everything.

Favorite Things


The most popular “reader’s favorite post” is The Master List of Book Blogging Memes

Book Blogging Memes

This post gets updated every year, so stay tunes next month for the 2016 edition.


 

The most liked digital lifehacking post is How To Use Evernote As A Blogging Editorial Calendar. This is the system I use to keep my blogging calendar / schedule – very easy to maintain since Evernote can be accessed via the web, downloaded as a computer program, or a smartphone app. I use the FREE version still.

App Love for Evernote

Finally, the most loved #bookish posts have been 3 Popular Books Worth the Hype. Would you agree or disagree?

Books Worth the Hype


Thanks for engaging with me in 2015 – and 2016 is going to be even better! 2014 as a year sucked for me, 2015 was pretty decent, and I’m hoping 2016 will be even better. How was your year – in reading or in life?
