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. This is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books..share them! Why the SUNDAY POST? Well, it is laid back just like the feature I co-host with Brittersweet from PLEASE FEED the BOOKWORM.
It doesn't have to be every week and you can mold it to fit your needs. I decided with these two features the only other thing I need to do on the blog is reviewing. This year it is all about simplifying because it is the only way I am going to stay organized!
THIS PAST WEEK From Christmas Eve until New Years Eve things were crazy around my house. The internet tanked on Christmas Eve when I was going to put the final touches and Rafflecopter on my Holiday from the Heart post. Then Christmas Day I became ill. It was only a 48 hour bug, but it kept me from plan B, which was to post it on Boxing Day, so it became a special year-end TELL ME TUESDAY, which you can view, HERE. It has two small giveaways; one is international.
I joined Bloggers Commenting Back and linked up, HERE. You should too. There are two or three blogs that I comment on all the time and they have never once commented here. I am not saying we have to comment post for post, but when they are meaningful and/or lengthly comments, once every two or three times would be nice. And I am not talking about blogs that get 50+ comments. These are blogs that get 4 to ten may be 15 tops every once in a while. Cait at PAPER FURY gets scores of comments on her posts and she manages to stop in here just about every time I comment over there. So, I think these other bloggers should be able to manage a few. I have not been commenting on these blogs lately and I actually think they could care less because none of them have said anything on Twitter.
This made me think about the bloggers who never reply comment on their own blogs, I have a few of those I visit, too. I especially get irked when they ask a question in their post and don't acknowledge your answer. One of those bloggers has a feature that is supposed to be a conversational post and she usually only answers the first person who comments. I don't stop by that feature anymore. NEXT WEEK The big deal next week on my blog is the ENSNARED review, on Monday.
It releases on Tuesday. I won an ARC during the cover reveal blog tour. My Goodreads mini-review is, HERE. There will be a small giveaway with the review.
There were two other posts that were delayed because of the holiday interuptions (and frankly burnout from doing five days of the 2014 Top Ten blog hop), so the top secret review of my best book released in 2014 will be on Wednesday...
and also my Looking Forward in 2015 post.
I am so happy I decided to join this feature. It was fun composing this post! See you all next week.
