Every year, October 11th is celebrated as National Coming Out Day. This day is always beautiful to me because not only do I see so many people taking the brave steps to come out but I also see so many allies reaching out and letting people know that they are safe to come out to.Continue reading
About a year ago, I posted a recap of an event – the Wonder Woman 5K in Los Angeles at LA Live. It was the first 5K I had ever run in my life and it was a crowning moment of my life and it sort of set the tone for the way my life would change and the way it would shape my every day routine. It would create new goals for me, new ambitions and new obsession. Because its become such an important part of my life, I want to talk about it. I thought about talking about it on this blog but it just never felt right – it felt too personal and while I’m personal on this blog, I’m not THAT personal. So I’m introducing my new endeavor.
Unfortunately, there is no Fandom Foodie Friday today because…well, this week was insane. But instead of that, I’m going to talk about some of the most badass female superheroes that we have out there. Comic books have had a huge jump in popularity ever since Ironman released in 2008 and both Marvel and DC Comics put out movies every year, driving people to the box office. However, we didn’t get a female-led DC movie until 2017 and a female-led Marvel movie until 2019. These characters have existed in the comics for decades so why is it taking SO long for them to get their own movies and shows?! We definitely need to talk about female superheroes more – and here are some of my favorites and some that I hope to become my favorites soon!
I’ve been blogging for over seven years now. I don’t get paid for this. I have never ever gotten paid for this. I’ve gotten perks here and there over the years because of my blog but those have become far and few between, especially once the popularity of BookTube and Bookstagram came into play and book bloggers sort of fell on the wayside. I’m not popular, I don’t even get ARCs as much as I used to and I didn’t get a ton to begin with. I have a small amount of followers – nearly 6,000 on the blog itself (compared to over 400K people who follow a very popular BookTuber), 2800 followers on instagram (150K for the BookTuber) and maybe 1400 on Twitter (74K). I obviously do not do it for money and popularity.
I know that its been awhile since I’ve done a Tuesday Top Ten and I feel bad about that. I’ve been so busy and I’m glad to be back and with such a fun topic. I love tattoos. I love getting them, I love having them and I love showing them off. I admit, buy summer is usually my favorite time of the year because I don’t have to bundle up and cover it and my tattoos can be seen. I love when people see them, healing and I really love that I can see them. I get them for myself first and foremost, so I love having them show.
That being said! I’ve had a lot of people come to me and ask me for advice over the past few years, and I thought, you know what, I’m going to do a Tuesday Top Ten talking about getting a tattoo and the things you should know!
I was originally going to send this directly to JLA. But then I realized how much that I wanted to share this with everyone. I’ve kept a lot of this stuff secret for awhile now and I’m ready for it to not be a secret. The main character of JLA’s new release Scorched really inspired me to be more open about myself and so that’s what I’m doing. I also want to warn you that there will be mild spoilers for Scorched in this letter. Thank you.
