Pride Month 2019!

It’s that time of year again! It’s June and it is Pride Month 🌈

Every year in June the history, politics, culture, and people of the Queer community are celebrated. Marking the occasion of the Stonewall riots, the month long celebration is one that looks to empower and educate people, to embolden those to feel pride in themselves and their sexuality. 2019 is extra special because it is 50 years since the Stonewall riots.

To mark this month long occasion, I will once again be dedicating a whole month to queer, LGBTQ, and QUILTBAG pieces of popular culture. Keep an eye out for some book reviews, a blog tour, a comic, a smut lovers reading group post, and a post about one of my all time favourite books.

So no matter who you are, I hope you enjoy Pride Month and have a lovely June!

Pride Month!

Hey everybody, it’s June!

Those of you in the know, will know that it is Pride Month! And those of you who didn’t know, now know 😀

Every year in June the history, politics, culture, and people of the LGBTI community are celebrated. Marking the occasion of the Stonewall riots, the month long celebration is one that looks to empower and educate people, to embolden those to feel pride in themselves and their sexuality.

Keep an eye out for posts about how I feel about the term LGBTI, what I’m currently interacting with, what I’m looking forward to, some of my queer favourites and other general recommendations.

So no matter who you are, I hope you enjoy your Pride Month and have a lovely June!

I’m back!

Boom Baby –

I’m back!

I’ve been gone for almost two years but I’m back. The blog has recently undergone some major work; a few touch ups here, some major reconstructions there.

You may have noticed:

  • The blogs name has changed. This has been something I have wanted to do for a while but couldn’t think of anything better. The idea was to have something that addressed the fact that I don’t tend to review things so much as talk about how I am experiencing them or just enjoy them. I hope you like the new name and that Ally’s Appraisals fits the blog content more.
  • I have changed the blog theme and am working those feature images and slider bar.
  • The Currently Consuming and Small Snippet headers have been reworked into something smaller and I what I think looks better.

I have no promised on the types of content or the frequency of the posts but I will be making an effort to keep this blog updated and relevant (if only for resume purposes). I look forward to writing more posts and getting back to engaging with the blogging community again.

 

Upcoming New Feature

In the upcoming weeks you can look forward to seeing a new blog feature called, ‘Currently Consuming.’


work-in-progressCurrently Consuming‘ will be a weekly look at something that, you guessed it, I am ‘currently consuming.’ This however is not the traditional sort of ‘consuming’ in that I will not be making the change to a food blog. No, instead I will use the spot to focus on something that I am in the middle of interacting with.

Just like the blog itself, this may include watching, reading, listening, playing or any kind of interaction you can think of really. So expect to see TV series, books, games music, movies and a whole bunch more.

I am currently in the middle of figuring out the structure and template for the new feature but the first post will appear on the 9th of January. ‘Currently Consuming’ will hopefully become a weekly post which I indulge in and will make an appearance every Friday.
