    • I was actually surprised when I went to preview the post but unfortunately Feb is lacking in posts because of not being able to do any work. So this week/weekend I will be working my butt off to get some stuff done lol

  1. Sometimes life intrudes, one of my blogs was hit by same problem as yours as hosted by same provider. Thank goodness my book blog on Blogger was okay!

    • It was awful! I really just couldn’t figure out what to do with myself. God forbid it happens again I think I will just start writing posts in MSWord to they are ready for when the blog goes up but I was in a panic.

  2. I wont be doing monthyl recaps for this challenge, as I thought it was too often for me, so I will onyl do guarterly recaps. I hope that’s okay? Even though january was a bit of a weird month, you still managed to do well on your reading goals and make soem progress. I am only making progress on one goal so far and that’s postign Lola’s Advice (I have the scheduled till June so far, yay!), let’s hope I make more progress on my other goals as well next month. And my netgalley percentage is going in the wrong direction, down instead of up. Good luck with your goals!
