The Strawberry Post

Here to Entertain, Educate & Inspire!


Hello and welcome to The Strawberry Post, a magazine style blog with a mixture of topics that hopes to Entertain, Educate and Inspire! 🙂

Hi I’m Cat, although for many years before I’ve gone by the name of Kitty online, so feel free to call me either. 🙂  If you’ve found yourself looking at this page you are probably wondering what exactly is The Strawberry Post and what can you find here?  Well I’ll say that it’s a beautiful no-niche (though kind of bookish) blog, which means that you can find a whole range of weird and wonderful stuff on here, including discussions, poetry, art and reviews, basically posts that range from the very serious to the downright silly! 😀

The Strawberry Post is so named because I like strawberries -like really like them 😋🍓, and the  word ‘post’ made it sound like a newspaper (at least I thought it does) and this blog is definitely newspapery in the way it looks, plus I used to create my own newspapers and magazines when I was a child (even colouring in all the pages and pictures so they’d all look cool and different) so I thought why not! 😀

I hope this blog entertains you and you leave here feeling happier and with a smile on your face. 🙂   I also hope it educates you about things you maybe didn’t know about like certain health subjects, current affairs issues or just fun bookish stuff.   And I also hope it inspires you to try something new, whether that’s trying out a new book, a new form of creativity or a new way of thinking and dealing with life (see my inspirational posts for that).  The Strawberry Post is here to Entertain Educate and Inspire! Have a wonderful day! 🙂 ❤

Site Badges

What are site/blog badges?  You may have noticed a few badges on this blog.  The first two of these badges show I’m a part of two Indie book awards.  These awards help to promote indie authors and their books.  The first is BBNYA (Book Bloggers Novel of the Year Award) which is running in it’s fourth year with new submissions open in the first months of every new year.  This is my third year as a BBNYA panelist and I’ve really been enjoying so much, have found some favourite books and authors already and can’t wait to find more this year.  Hundreds of bloggers read indie books in this award and decide which is the best overall and I’m one of the panelists (click here for more information on BBNYA):

The next is the indie ink Awards which is in it’s first year and books are nominated by readers for diferent award subjects and I’m proud to have been a judge for the first year and can’t wait to find more new favourite books in next year’s competition (click here for more information on the Indie Ink Awards):

This third badge comes from Twinkl, the site which has lots of useful resources and interesting articles for teachers and also parents too.  The following badge comes from Twinkl UK for some fun and simple crafting ideas I shared for Fun Things to Make and Do This Christmas!  However two of my reviews have also featured on the Twinkl websites, The Beast of Harwood Forest on the .com site and We Were Wolves on the .ie site. 🙂

This blog is ‘family friendly’!

What does family friendly mean? It means this blog is designed for all ages to view it and I encourage everyone to check out every area of the blog.  While some subjects tackled here might be difficult for kids to read about: mental health or dark poetry for example, and some books are clearly aimed at older audiences, this blog has no content that would be considered offensive, no bad language* and there are warnings throughout if certain sections/posts could be upsetting for sensitive and younger readers.  By being family friendly I also hope that all adults, especially those who are reluctant readers, will consider checking out books and sections that are aimed at younger audiences.  There is no shame in reading books aimed at children (I do all the time and I love it!), many of these are funny and sometimes feature jokes that only older readers would understand.  There is also no shame in enjoying children-typical activities like colouring (I do this a LOT!), it’s like re-living your youth!
*Plesase note: I am not responsible for the use of bad language or opinions of those who post comments on this blog.  However if anything is overly offensive (such as blatant racism, etc.) I have the ability to delete comments which I will do so – please contact me using the above contact page if you are upset or find any content particularly distressing to read.  Thank you.

Who am I?

Who writes posts here?  All posts are currently written by the creator of this blog, me!  My name’s Cat Strawberry, though Ii’ve gone by the name Kitty online for years, so feel free to call me either (“Hi” *waves frantically!).  I’m a long-time blogger, and fun loving girl (technically an adult but I will always have the mind of someone much younger🤪!) with a deep love of books, videogames, animals, art, creating videos, laughing herself silly, being nice (always!) and of course strawberries! 🍓  If you’d like to get in touch please see the contact page for more details on how and if there are any circumstances you should follow (e.g. review request guidelines).  Thank you, and I hope you enjoy reading this blog!
