Hello and welcome to The Strawberry Post, a magazine style blog with a mixture of topics that hopes to Entertain, Educate and Inspire! 🙂
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 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 educates you about things you maybe didn’t know like certain health subjects, current affairs issues or just fun bookish stuff. I hope it entertains you and you leave here feeling happier and with a smile on your face. 🙂 And I 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). Have a wonderful day everyone! 😀 ❤
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 third year with new submissions open in the first months of next year. Hundreds of bloggers read indie books and decide which is the best overall and I’m one of the panelists:
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 be a judge:
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.
