    • Are you a Melina Marchetta fan? If so you should check out The Marchetta Valentine Exchange. It is an event for the Melina Marchetta fandom where participants will give and receive one card for Valentine’s Day. 
    • Also check this post for some FABULOUS giveaways!

    Check out the great beats I stumbled on this fortnight! Are they on your playlist? Any recommendations?
    Illusrator: Simini Blocker. Check out this talented illustrator's art here.
    Gorgeous isn't it? I saw this illustration of Eleanor and Park on Twitter and immediately fell in love with it and I haven't even read the book yet! <3
    Remember my blogging bucket list? This was resolution #10-
    Ditch a few of those a bazillion social networks and use only those that I find beneficial to my blog or fun. Facebook's not quite working out for me so I'll be making one last attempt this year to see how it goes, if it still proves to tedious and pointless I'm getting rid of it.Instead of forcing myself to do the things I don't like, I'll be focusing on the stuff I truly enjoy!
     I have been giving a Facebook a try but it hasn't been going too well. So my options right now are to switch over to Tumblr or to stick with Facebook and work it somehow! 
    So readers: Tell me which do you prefer Tumblr or Facebook? 

    Bloggers: Have you tried either of these platforms? Which works better for you? If Facebook is working for you, please share your tips/advise in the comments!

    2. I personally don't really "get" Tumblr. I mean, my impression is that it's like a simplified blog on its own, so if you already have a blog, you shouldn't use it.

      I could be totally off the mark though. :P That's just the impression I get.

      Love the round-up links!

      1. Thanks for your input, Ashley-I agree with you about Tumblr being a simplified blog so maybe I'll try Facebook for sometime until I figure out a better alternative! :)

    3. Haha, I ditched Facebook after a few months, but I quite like Tumblr (mostly "use" it to drool over people/food, though)

      Beautiful Small Machines <3 And I <3 this new feature, too. Found "11 Questions To Ask Before Your Post Goes Live" esp. useful :)

    4. I really like this post! It's fun to find links, etc. I'm really loving Lorde these days. "Team" is my current favorite. Reminds me a bit of my friends. I use Tumblr but not for my blog...I just like to repost funny things or whatever I'm currently obsessing about. haha

    6. Great round up Nuz. That art, I just want to look and look at it, I love it.
      I don't use Tumblr, I don't get it. Maybe I'm too old. I enjoy using my facebook page but so far I don't have many likes. It's early days though so I'll stick with it for a while because it doesn't seem like a chore so far.

      1. I know, I couldn't stop staring at the art for a really long time too! :D Yes, I definitely remember the TFiOS-So pretty and looking at them gives me so many FEELS. Haha, I don't seem to have inherited the artistic gene, either! :P
