Guess what?! It’s been one year!

I’m one year old!

one year yayIt’s been a great first year here at Brown Books & Green Tea. Lately, things have been rather quiet while I get used to my new work schedule. For those of you who don’t know, I actually started this blog in the midst of unemployment, as a way to keep myself sharp during my job hunt.

One year later, and my life seems to have done a complete 180. I’m employed at a job I love (so far), I’m in a fantastic apartment, and there are so many other things on the horizon. It’s great!

Moving forward, I’ll probably be a bit less regular with my posts while I figure out what type of schedule works for me. That won’t stop me from continuing to post great books and epic blogger features– but it will mean that I won’t be posting 7-10 books per month anymore.

Thanks for sticking with me for this first year of Brown Books & Green Tea;  hopefully the next year will be even better! Here are some of my favorite posts from the last year:

  1. 6 Times nayyirah waheed Embodied ‘Black Lives Matter’ in Poetry
  2. Understanding Oppression through Literature: Part 1
  3. #DiverseBookBloggers, and why we’re necessary
  4. 10 Diverse Sites You Need to Bookmark
  5. A Mothers’ Day Post from My Mother
  6. Instead of reading, I watched Confirmation. It was worth it.
  7. Book Review | When Breath Becomes Air, by Paul Kalanithi
  8. What I’ve learned from books I’ve hated

  1. I can’t believe I’ve only just stumbled across your blog. I have a site dedicated to great books and lovely tea… The two just go so well together don’t you think? From what I can see, you’ve established an amazing following and impressive blog in one year. I look forward to seeing more of your posts….
