Recent Rambles: A blogging crisis

                    So after 9 months of blogging, I have finally reached 100 posts, of which this is the one hundredth and this really crazy when I think about it because that so many posts. I started this, not even knowing where it would go and now we are here. It is quite mind blowing. 

          The thing about this is I don't actually know if I like a lot of stuff on my blog. I mean sure right now what my favourite song is on a Thursday or the top 5 books that I was spoiled for are fun but are they actually the stuff that when I look back in five years time and go, "Wow I'm am making some good content." Short answer no. I feel like memes - e.g. Top Ten Tuesday or Top 5 Wednesday- are good for so long, they are great for you to build and grow your blog but they are not the best content in the world. I am not criticising anyone who does memes because let's face it I do them. I do them because they are quick and easy and they can be done in like 20 minutes and for a Uni student, they are great but are they really what I want to create? Not really... 

        At the beginning of the year, I said to myself that I want to give myself more freedom to create what I wanted but I guess this has not happened. At all in fact. OK, so I lie because my A-Z of YA Mental Health books is something that I have wanted to do for a long time and am so proud of but for a lot of my content not really. 

        I guess what I am trying to say is that I want to make content that I care about and I like writing and even if this means that I don't post as often as before then that is OK because as long as I am creating stuff that I care is all that matters. 

        I think that if there are still topics that I care about then I will still do the memes but this may not be every week. 

I hope you continue with me on this blogging journey with me. 

See you soon, 

Amy

PS I am still going to be talking about books! You don't have to worry about that.

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

Considering this keeps gaining attention, I just wanted to clarify that I no longer support J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. I'm not sure why people are clicking on this but, the views in this post do not reflect my current views and I only posted it on my blog so that it could be shared as not many people came to the event when it first happened.  So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you

But when Greer joins the other chosen few at the ancient and sprawling Longcross Hall, she realises that Henry's parents are not at home; the only adults present are a cohort of eerily compliant servants. The student
