This One Thing: New (More Personal) Feature

So okay, I've honestly been looking for a little reprieve from books on this blog. I don't mean that in a bad way! It's like this: I love reading personal posts by other bloggers. And I love to journal and talk about my favorite things: favorite foods, new music I love, things that make me tick, etc. And I used to journal so much back in the day, but never really got back in the groove of the handwritten journaling thing. The curse of advancing technology, I suppose.

I was brainstorming over different ways that I could make Makeshift Bookmark a little more cozy, if you will. Perhaps it's completely delusional to think that people would want to read more about me, as opposed to books. But this is my corner of the internet, after all, and if I'm talking about books, I'm going to talk about a bunch of crap.

Thus, This One Thing was mentally formed.

Each Sunday, I'll be chronicling One Thing in my life that I'd like to share. Be it "that one thing I can't get enough of," "that one guilty pleasure of mine," "that one thing I look forward to each day/week/month." RANDOM STUFF. (I've got a whole list, I promise!) Just wanting to throw it out there for you guys to prepare for some serious ridiculousness, tons of photos, and possible TMI coming from this chick. (I'll keep it decent, I promise. Well, I'll try.)

Hey, maybe I can get Carla to participate, too?


  1. Personally, I like reading about bloggers personal lives. It connects me better to their other content - in this case, your reviews. Journal to your heart's content - I'll read!

  2. This sounds amazing! I'm excited to read about your random stuff. Crazy stuff happens in life, so it's awesome to move away from books for a second to take a breather and reflect back on real life instead of fictional lives.

  3. Great minds think alike!! I am starting something like this, too. Just a personal post a week. I, like you, LOVE reading and learning a little bit more about the person behind the blog.

    Looking forward to reading your posts!

    My first one is scheduled for Wednesday, so feel free to stop by :)

  4. Sounds good looking forward to reading them.

  5. I think this is going to be awesome! I can't wait to check out your posts each week :)

  6. You know I'm stoked for this!! Probs one of my fave things is doing personal posts on my blog and I love when others share themselves on their blogs too!
