Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Real Life & Blog News:
I was all ready for a productive blogging day and then The Sims sucked me in for a good 5 hours and my blogging day just totally fell apart 🙂 It’s ok since I am still ahead but as I was playing I started to think a lot and realized I might be loosing sight of why I started my blog in the first place. Yes, I love to read and I love writing reviews, but something has been missing for a while now. I realized I am ok with discussion posts but I just can’t produce them fast enough. I love my App Reviews, my Task it Tuesdays and of course My TBR list but for me that is not enough I want to do more to help promote and get the word out about amazing books. I have thought about doing two new features now that Life of a Blogger has ended. So I will be trying those out in the next two months. I thought it would be good to get back into Blitz/Blast Posts (since I use to love those and love visiting blogs that have them, it’s how I find books) and maybe a random Blog Tour here or there. I will still be doing my Just a Random post and the Top Tens but they are harder for me to get out, so as much as I love them they take a while to set up, there might not be a lot until closer to the end of the year. I need to build up a few instead of writing one at a time. So once again Because Reading will go through a little post change and it’s not really a bad thing 🙂 since sometimes change is good. I am not going to stress and have a post everyday but maybe more than I have had this month. I think this will also give me time to get those reviews written posted since some of the books I have read aren’t scheduled till closer to the release day. There is a chance I will also do some Author Spotlights again but that might be more of a slim chance. I just did a EXCLUSIVE first look inside the book and I might try doing something like that for new authors, since it introduces the book and gives you a sneak peak inside.
I am officially signed up to attend BEA this year but I am only going on Friday since I can’t take the entire week off, I don’t have anyone to go with and I don’t drive into New York. So my sister and I will be attending Friday. I have never meet any bloggers at BEA being a the chicken that I am but I would love to meet some of you if you would like to meet up on Friday 🙂
This week has been a little crazy, my son gets bussed to school since he goes to a special one and they switched the company on us so for the first 3 days this week the new bus company SUCKED and the woman in charge would not give me a straight answer on who would be driving my son, everyday was different so on Wednesday I told my mother to take him out of the car and my dad drive him and I picked him up. I COMPLAINED AND WHINED and they agreed to give us the old driving company back with the nice adorable Spanish ladies who adore my son. He was so happy, They were so happy and I was in need of a strong drink. Next week will be a crazy week since my mom is away and I have to get the kids off to school instead of her. That means I will be in work late and still have to leave early to get the kids on time. I thankfully took off Thursday and I already have off Friday so it will be a nice week and I plan to get a lot of Blogging done as long as the Sims don’t get in the way. It’s just so hard to not play again 🙂
If you are still reading this GOD BLESS you, I hope to get around to visiting my fav blogs again and back into the blog more than I have been, these dang lazies are getting on my nerves but now that the weather is beautiful I might go for walks to clear my head, winter being trapped in the house with these crazy kids and a husband has seriously mushed my brains.
Sorry this post was so long and thank you for sticking around to read the entire thing, however I don’t apologize for the over use of smiley faces 😉 (or winky ones)
