About

Monbijoubrücke Berlin

My name is Rosamund and I'm bridging the gap between LitHub and GitHub!

I'm from the UK — I grew up in various parts of East Anglia — and I now live in Berlin, Germany.

This blog, which I built myself with Wagtail CMS, is a natural evolution of my old one, which had kind of run its course. Along with my burgeoning interest in the behind-the-scenes of websites, I wanted to have more autonomy over its look and features, plus I needed to have an excuse to keep publishing online. Making my own blog rather than relying on one of the popular hosting sites seemed like a perfect meeting of those worlds.

When I'm not coding, you'll most likely find me stuck in a good book. I veer strongly towards novels and memoirs with queer or feminist themes; check out my reading lists by year here. Plus, I am writing two books of my own; the plan is to get one fit for human consumption by the end of 2020!

I've been vegan since 2011 (with the exception of a few miserable months in 2014, but we don't talk about that), and I wouldn't have it any other way. I also really enjoy just exploring and learning about the city and surrounding area.

P.S. About the blog name: it's basically "Rosamund". Latin: rosa mundi, English: rose of the world, German: Rose der Welt.
