Bloggiesta: Time to Get Back to the Blog


I have been neglecting my blog so badly lately. I noticed that there's a Bloggiesta going on this weekend and I don't have a lot going on myself, so here I am with a very short but important to-do list. It's all about reviews for me. I need to write reviews. I need to update my reviews list on my blog. I need to add reviews to Goodreads and Amazon. The main reason for this blog is to share my thoughts on books, so I need to actually do it!

Here's my official list:
  • Write at least 3 reviews ~ UPDATE: 2 done; 1 to go
  • Update Reviews page
  • Add all reviews that haven't been added yet to Goodreads
  • Add select reviews to Amazon
  • Clean up the review requests in my email
If you are participating, what's on your list?

  1. I need to cross post my reviews to Amazon, too. It's just so overwhelming. I hope you get a ton knocked out!

    1. Thanks! Yes, I pick and choose because it's too time consuming!

  3. I have the usual things on my list, like changing my look and layout, cleaning up sidebars, etc. I love that part....and I also enjoyed a couple of mini-challenges.

    Have fun! Thanks for sharing.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …

Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate.

To stick with the theme of Independence Day, I'm doing what I did last year for this hop:

I'm giving away a book of your choice that is written by an author from the United States.
It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository.

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday!
