I didn’t get as much done as I wanted during Bloggiesta but most of the important stuff is done. I’ve marked a few Mini-Challenges for later, since I’ll have more time mid-April for blogging. I spent most of my blogging time visiting Trish’s Day in the Life participants posts (still trying to do that). Such good posts! Go check them out. I’m going to do it properly next time.
I took part in several Twitter chats, the most interesting was the one on reviews. Wow. So many people don’t write their own synopsises. Either they felt that the ones written by publishers were superior or, as one person said, thought writing one felt like plagiarism. I…don’t know what to make of that. I do write my own, though I try to keep them brief. The whole chat on reviewing was eye opening. I’m considering a change in how I do them. I have to brain storm. I’ll give a thought while I shampoo my hair.
Here’s how my to-do list fared:
Back up my blog. Update my Review Page.
- Write some posts. (working on it)
- Think about what I’m going to do with the blog once my job ends soon.
- Create some kind of blogging schedule and stick to it. (um….)
Clean out my email (again).* Attend a Twitter party.
Pin backlog of reviews to Pinterest.
*I took myself off so many newsletters and mailing lists this time. Really, why do I need daily Twitter updates? And Goodreads, you too! I hope this cuts down on a lot of unnecessary emails.
In other news, I’m listening to As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley. Flavia is in Canada and I’m enjoying it more than I thought I would.
I’m trying out contact lenses for the first time ever and it is more challenging than expected.
I finally saw Frozen and liked it quite a bit! I can see why kids are obsessed with it.
I keep forgetting Easter is next week. Argh! I need to plan our dinner and make sure the Easter Bunny will bring enough treats. I really want to try the Crab Cake recipe from The Mystery Writers Cookbook on Friday.
That’s it for now. Back to working on my future blog posts.
