Better Reading & Blogging in 2016

I’ve never been much about New Year resolutions (let’s be real, I can never keep them), but this year I’ve been giving a lot of thought to my reading and blogging habits, and where I want to go with it in the next few months. Both of these have always been passions and hobbies, and when they start feeling like obligations, I tend to neglect them. With the Infinite Curio turning 7 tomorrow, now is as good a time as any to make some good...

The Disappearing Curio

Thanks to my permanent inability to make decisions, some of you may have noticed that, for the past couple weeks, the Curio has been blinking in and out of existence. As the renewal date for the domain came close, it seemed I simply couldn’t take a decision : should I stay with my current host, or go? Find a better deal, simply abandon blogging? (a thought only considered when confusion and tiredness seized me, I assure you!) In the end,...

Hello again!

Uhm… hi? Is anybody out there? It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I never planned on taking a break from blogging. It just went from “I’ll post tomorrow” to “I’ll post next week” to “Eh… I don’t know.” And now four months have passed. I always said that if blogging became an obligation, I would stop; and I guess in a way that’s what it had become. But lately I have...

It’s YA Contemporary Reading Month!

It’s YA Contemporary Reading Month!

It’s July 1st, and on top of being Canada’s Day (Hurray for you, Canada!), it is also the start of my month dedicated to reading YA contemporaries! So exciting! I have always felt that summer was the perfect time to read them, and I had a great time doing something similar for 2 weeks last year – and the results at the finish line were better than expected! While I doubt I’ll be able to double the amount of reading I...

Bali, here we come!

Bali, here we come!

This photo of Kuta is courtesy of TripAdvisor This is it! Tomorrow, this very Friday, the Man and I are leaving for a much, much needed two weeks vacation in Indonesia – more precisely, to Bali! Unlike our trip to France, which had been planned for over a year, this one took life very quickly in early December, when a friend of ours left to explore Asia on her own for a few months. It will be exciting to meet with her there and have our...

Just trying something!

Just trying something!

Hey everyone! If you visit here regularly you might have noticed that the homepage is now absent, landing you right on the blog’s page when you arrive on the Curio. It’s not a mistake, simply me trying something else! Don’t get me wrong, I love the front page. But no matter how pretty it is, and how useful it is in featuring what the blog is about, I’m always afraid it’s not the most useful/practical for you...

New and “Final” look!

New and “Final” look!

Happy Thursday all! So, I am super happy today because I’m finally making some changes around here, changes I have been working on for a little while! I talked about it a few times, mentioned it on twitter, and now it’s finally done; the final look for the blog is done, and while there might be some tweaks left to do, that’s pretty much it! Yay! It’s what I wanted it to be; simple and clean with just a tad of...

News of the blog

Happy Saturday everyone! When moving to the blog’s new home some weeks ago, I mentioned that many things still had to be done. Like in real life, there is often a lot more to it than simply moving the boxes from one house to the other. You have to unpack the boxes, decide where everything goes, decorate, then change you mind about one room, switch everything up, etc. So I guess this is a simple update about my progress. I know most people...
