Book blogger resources: how i revamped the quiet pond (and my tips for your next revamp!)

Recently, I revamped The Quiet Pond and gave my book blog a fresh look. In the past, my revamps were always a haphazard process – I changed things here and there and just hoped for the best. With this revamp, however, I took the time to plan my revamp – and I’ve never felt so happy with how my book blog looks.

As the protests sweep across the US, and have now extended across the world, I have stated on Twitter that The Quiet Pond supports Black Lives Matter but I also wanted to make it unequivocally clear here, at the Pond, that The Quiet Pond supports, and will always support, Black Lives Matter.
