Future Plans For The Blog

In the past I have made about a dozen different blogs, and each one started with a brief summary of what I wanted to do, how I wanted to achieve it and that this time it would be different. Each of those different blogs started and ended with that very post. Due to this, if you would have asked me last year if I thought I would have been running and posting regularly on my very own blog I would have indeed laughed in your face.

I am extremely happy at the moment, primarily due to the fact I'm actually giving something a go for once instead of starting it and then thinking that I can't do it or that I'm not good enough. The saying "You don't  know unless you try" is an extremely relevant quote and it is in fact rather true - how can you fail if you don't even try, life is full of failures, but it's how you get past them that makes you a better person and make you grow and get better.

I primarily love design and I want this blog to coincide with that as well as my love of reading - I want to create alternate book sleeves and art work based on the books that I have read and create a whole world of different designs to do with books and other stuff. I am, however, going to take this one step at a time - firstly with the design of this blog. It's a bit simple to start with but I am currently just messing around with all the coding (which is extremely confusing and took me a good couple of hours to find one simple thing) and the sizings of all my designs. I have a basic layout up at the moment but this most definitely isn't the finished article.

The reviews will still keep coming, but I just wanted to let you know that I intend to take this blog in many a direction over the up and coming year so be on the look out.

Thank you for reading.
