Thanks for an Amazing 2019!

Happy holiday season, Queerblr fam and fans!
What an amazing year it’s been. The site is really starting to come into it’s own and I’m more than ecstatic to have Silas joining me in reviews now and am so excited to see where things go in 2020. I started this site as a passion project back in 2016 because I never wanted folks to go through what I went through growing up – growing up queer with not a lot to read. Now that I’m finally getting the handle on Twitter (I know, I know – I’m super late to the tweet tweet party) I’m seeing so many other LGBTQ+ media and book review sites. And you know what? That makes me so incredibly happy! I am so glad that there are so many resources readily available to those who are in need of queer content. I’m happy to be a contributing site and helping people find the media that will make them happier in their day to day, even if it is just a book recommendation that will help them steal away for a few hours on their weekend.
I have a lot of hopes for 2020 for the Queerblr. I am well aware that the content I’ve reviewed thus far has been predominately women loving women content and I hope to bring a much wider range of media to the site in the coming year. I have a healthy backlog in my “to be read” pile of books by fabulously queer authors with original characters that cover the expansive spectrum of the LGBTQ+ community. And the areas I’m lacking, I have on my “to order” list. I’m hoping that in 2020 the Queerblr will host reviews for books with trans main characters, ace main characters, non-romantic stories, and so much more. We’re also hoping to have weekly reviews, but also know that we’re busy with days jobs and family life and sometimes a week will probably be missed here and there.
Silas and I are taking a brief respite from the review scene until the new year, but I’m kicking off 2020 with a review of The Prince and the Dressmaker, by Jen Wang on January 1st! Until then, we wish you a happy holidays and a safe new years!
