  3. Julia,
    Thanks so much for commenting on my "Literary Adventures.” :) I've very much enjoyed looking through your blog and hope to visit again! (And btw, I love your blog title and all the strawberry pictures.... When my family lived in the Pacific Northwest, we used to pick hundreds of pounds of fresh strawberries and I have extremely fond memories. ;)) And speaking of your blog title, it looks like we might have a number of other things in common! I love writing.... :) And (as one delighted writer to another), I thought I'd just drop a quick note with my main blog link in case you didn't already run across it (as Literary Adventures is the one I started for read-alongs ;)). My other main one is at Along the Brandywine. I'd love to have you visit anytime! :)

    1. Hello Heidi! Thank you for your lovely comment!! I know what you mean..strawberries have such a memorable taste and smell on a warm June day. :) You do?! What kind of subjects do you like writing about? Thank you for your blog link; I'll have to look at it more as I have looked at a bit. :) I may even follow! :) Have a blessed evening!

    2. Yes, strawberries....delicious! ;) And writing! At the moment, I'm mostly working on blog posts :), but after Christmas I'm planning to start on my next novel again. It's currently set in late 1800's Boston and Wyoming territory. ....So mostly short stories and historical fiction.

      Delete
    3. Oh awesome! I love historical fiction! I started to do NaNoWriMo this November..but, I got too busy because I started doing some new courses in school. But, I was okay with that...writing used to be THE thing for me..hahaa. I think I have grown out of it a bit and I want to expand my horizons. (real poetic ;) ) I am an addicted avid reader though. I just made it to 100 books this year! sorry...random bragging moment. ;) Have a great Sunday tomorrow!

  5. Hey Julia! I saw that you have been doing your blog for awhile and I was wondering since I just started if you have any tips.

    1. Hi Maddy.. (BTW, I'm sorry I spelled your name wrong in my last comment..my bad! :P ) Well, I've grown a lot since I started my blog. I really didn't try and get my blog out into the blogger world, I just enjoyed the comments from friends. Maybe try sharing your blog with friends and family? I also liked to comment on blogs that I had already been enjoying for a looongg time and leave my blog link along with my comment. Swapping blog buttons, doing guest posts, that type of stuff really helps. One more thing...make a goal list for your blog. The type of stuff you want to have on your blog, either through posts or comments. The photos..the other bloggers who you swap buttons with (do they have the same content as you like? etc), that has really helped me know what I want on my blog and sticking to it. Which I feel readers like. I don't like reading a blog for a while, then seeing a post that totally goes against what they've been saying for months. For me, I want to give glory to God in everything I do..so with this blog, that's my goal! Haha..those are some of my long winded tips! :D Happy New Year!

  6. Hey Julia! Thanks! I'll have to try some of that. :) I really like your last post! Happy New Year!

  18. Hello there,
    Im Ava!
    Im 16 years old, love to read, listen and play music, and read.

    I have set up a website called Argonaut Nation, its specially designed for teen girls to share their passions and projects.
    As one of my favorite bloggers, I was wondering if you might be interested in submitting something? It can be anything from a poem your enjoying, to a photoshoot, a review on a book, to an art project.

    You can check out the website here: theargonautnation.com.

    Ava :)

    Ps. If you have any friends who you think might be interested, I would also sincerely appreciate it if you let them know. :)

  28. Hello, Julia! I am Kendra Lynne. :)
    I love your blog and have followed it for a while, but until now have not been able to comment.
    You and I have a lot in common! I am a Christian, and the things that I like on your list are (of course Jesus Christ!!!) learning, libraries, baking, reading, outdoors, photography, converse, teal, life, drinking water, exploring, chip eating, and cookie dough. I cannot list EVERYTHING that I like; that would take a LONG time.
