I know I’ve been away for the past couple of days. We had our final performance for my Homeschool Co-op Acting class yesterday – we did poems by Shel Silverstein – so fun! Since my son was doing sound, we had to be there for the dress rehearsals for all the other classes too. PLUS I had to help my daughter with her project for her project fair. (Turned out great!) That took up our entire Monday and Tuesday. I’m now in recovery, BUT we still have more dress rehearsals on Friday and our final Musical Theater performance on Saturday (the one I wrote).
Anyway, I thought I’d tide you over with a fun, completely useless, nonsensical infographic I made comparing how I feel when I read fiction to how I feel when I read (self-help type) non-fiction. I mostly did this because I bought Lifetime access to Stock Unlimited through AppSumo (for a fantastic deal) and really wanted to use something from it! Since I had no real statistics to use in an infographic, I thought I’d make some up. I started with a fun template and made it my own. Enjoy!

What do you think? Do you like to make fun graphics just for the heck of it or am I the only one who spends WAY too much time on such things? I want to know!
ooh good luck with the play this weekend! this is such a cute graphic. Who cares about science? It’s so pretty! And I get what you mean. I actually love reading non fiction and self help type of books. I don’t always implement ideas from them IN my life, but it’s still interesting to know. But yeah, I read fiction way more often.
Science schmience, that’s what I say! I just thought it would be fun to do something a little wacky – and it was!
Good luck with your rehearsals! I love these infographics, especially the part where it says 30% logical thinking 90% feels! awesome post 🙂
Yes – isn’t that how your brain is divided? Mine gets confused about the fact that it’s supposed to add up to 100%. 🙂
It’s so cool that you made this infographic! Its really pretty haha – i think you made great use of your purchase!
Yes – I’ve already used graphics a few times, so I think it’s a great purchase! I have to confess that the template already had a lot of the pretties – I just added to them (and made good use of them!).
Um, I’m still kinda speechless that you made the graphic. I haven’t even finished reading it all yet, I’m just… in awe. Go you! 🙂 But really, isn’t it funny how the “self-help” stuff can actually leave us feeling less than helped? LOL Bring on the fiction for all the good feels! 🙂
Yes, self-help for me isn’t usually all that helpful. I WANT to listen to the advice, but it generally never happens.
I’ve been neglecting the blog as well. I’ve recently started a new job and it’s quite exhausting. I barely have enough energy to talk to my family. Sigh.
Hope things are getting easier for you now that you’re getting used to the new schedule!
OMG, that infographic is awesome! That is exactly how I feel about nonfiction and probably the reason why I don’t read it that often.
I barely ever read it. The only non-fiction I read are books that are “required” for my Bible studies.
This is super cute. I love infographics!
I love the infographic. I’ve tried to make a few of them, but none of them turned out as good as yours.
The template had a lot of this already done for me, I have to confess. I added things (including all the text, of course), but it started with a lot of prettiness!
Loved this infographic and totally agree! I’m so the same way in the fiction vs nonfiction debate!
Hi, Anna! Fun to see you here on the blog!
I can’t manage to make myself read non-fiction. I’ve tried, but I often lose interest and give up.
That is super cute! Love it! I also totally agree with you. I could probably use a couple self help books, but can’t bring myself to ever actually read one. There’s just too many good fiction books out there that I want to read.
true – time is a big factor too!
I am in LOVE with this! And my goodness, it is SO true! (Though, I probably more than 7% bored. But I can be simultaneously bored AND realizing I am not going to do anything with the information, right? 😉 And the fiction side is me COMPLETELY. Like, so accurate!
Also, the infographic itself is really pretty! You did a great joB! Good luck with all the musical theater stuff- you are like, supermom! 😀
I can’t take credit for all the prettiness – lots of it was already there on the template. I added some graphics (and all the words, of course) – I figured I’d start myself off easy! 🙂
I figured your brain would be just like mine on this one. Except maybe mine has a bit more fluff since I’m older and my kids are older – they’ve been sucking out brain matter for longer than yours have!
“Am I actually going to stick to any of these? Yeah no.” ROFL!!!!! Best infograph EVER! Thanks for the smiles and I hope that the Musical Theater performance tomorrow goes smoothly and turns out fabulous!
Thanks so much! Glad I could make you laugh!
This is really accurate for made up info. It’s like you are inside my head. This is really fun and look so good.
It’s all very scientifically made up. You can definitely trust my data.

Wow, what a beautiful and hilarious infograph!! LOVE THIS!
Yay! Glad I could make you smile!
I can’t believe you made this Nicole^^ SO.AWESOME. I agree with it and think it’s a lot of fun ♥ My brain on rainbows. YES PLEASE. Hence my blog name LOL! Thanks for much for sharing this pretty 😀
Ha! Yes, you’re blog name goes along with this infographic beautifully!
Ooh, that’s such a cool infographic! I made a few infographics in high school but never thought to do one with reading/book blogging! Maybe I’ll try making one this summer!
THIS IS HILARIOUS AND WONDERFUL. XD I think it’s super creative, Nicole!! And I love that it was 90% feels and 30% logic. ? SO TRUE. Although mine can be 50/50 split but otherwise, pfffft, think outside the box. That is the best way.
I love this, Nicole! SOOO cute and fun! I don’t read non-fiction so mine would be fiction.. hahahaha I want to do something like this, too! Only with YA and Adult/Historical Romance! LOL
It was really fun to make! You should definitely do one!
