I decided to have some more direction on my blog this year. Here’s what I’m thinking:
1st Wednesday of the month: IWSG
2nd Wednesday: Wacky Wednesday, where I post my miscellaneous thoughts (will probably focus more on faith and family, movies and music)
3rd Wednesday: Mash-up of Awesomeness (guest posts, interviews, cover reveals, blogfests announcements, etc . . . )
4th Wednesday: YA/NA Book Club–a review of the books I’ve read in the past month *anyone interested in reading the same book for March and posting about it? I’m thinking of Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans, but I’m open to suggestions!
Of course, I’ll always make an exception for my blogger buddies and post whenever they need me to do a cover reveal, ect . . . when it’s not a Wednesday. For instance, I’m revealing Alex Cavanaugh’s cover on Friday and Ciara Knight’s Escapement cover on Monday, so be sure to check back then. But I figured with this schedule, I’m fitting in a little bit of everything:-)
And just in case you missed it, here are the links for my 18 Things blog tour since the last time I posted:
Michelle Ziegler’s blog, where I shared about the time I almost drowned in a septic tank, and I’m not even shitting you right now!
Lindsey Loucks blog, where she asked me 18 fun questions, and I tried to give equally fun answers!
Jessa Russo’s blog, where I shared a deleted scene *paperback and ebook giveaway still up for grabs here!!*
And now for my random thoughts segment . . . .
On Valentine’s Day, my 9yo daughter gave me a list of “18 Things I Love About You.” She’s wanted her own blog for about a year now, but I told her she has to wait until she’s in middle school like her sister . . . so I thought she’d get a kick out of me publishing her list on here. And let’s face it, I only have 4 more years of her saying nice things about me, so I have to document this while I still can! Here’s her cute list (and I kept her spelling the same):
3. acts like a 9 year old kid *coincidentally, this is often my 12yo biggest complaint about me*
6. everydays funier with you
7. good cook (hey, I never said all of this was true)
8. shouting out squril
10. sweet like candy
12. good friend
14. brave enough to kill spiders
15. careful, except when driving like Jeff Gordon *hindsight is 20/20–probably not a good idea to have my h.s. boyfriend teach me how to drive*
16. nice, small eyes *both my daughters have their dad’s eyes, which people are forever commenting on how big they are. You can watch this video to see for yourself–my daughters would be forever grateful since they really want to become YouTube sensations since their mean parents won’t let them become child actors*
17. great writer
18. And the last thing I love about you is that it wasn’t even hard to think of 18 Things that I love about you
*Awww! Did you have any sweet surprises this past week? What do you think about joining my YA/NA Monthly Online Book Club? Any book suggestions for me?!?
I love this so much…I can’t even describe it. Well, maybe I can, 9 and 10 year olds love us like nobody else. Just enough independent thought and innocence to be so in love with their family. Keep this list forever!
And, of course, always love re-organization. I always have to re-do my stuff. Yours sounds great!
I love these 18 things! Children can be so sweet and honestly sweet, though I’m glad I’m in a different country with the driving comment! 😉
ROFL … “SQUIRREL!”
Aw! That’s so sweet of your daughter. Good idea with the Wednesday blogging schedule.
What a sweet list! And I still can’t kill spiders … can’t decide if they’re icky or if I should feel sorry for them when they get smushed …
I love the Wednesday schedule, and good work in fitting the IWSG in there. The blogosphere just wouldn’t be the same without Alex C. 🙂
I’m watching you William. Lol too cute.
Lovely list! You are truly blessed.
The 18 things list from your daughter is priceless. That is the best birthday present ever.
I love a blogging schedule, although mine’s on Mondays (with some other days plopped in, like the IWSG).
Absolutely adore your daughter’s list! What a memorable present.
This is such an adorable list! I love the ‘careful, except when driving like Jeff Gordon’ – HA! 😀
What a sweetie!Love her list. And I love your idea for a book club. A few of us did it way way back but it fizzled. Online book club is an awesome idea. Count me in!
Aww Brave enough to kill spiders!! That would be my number 1 I think 🙂 It’s lists like that, that make having kids worth it. Now if only mine could talk.
I’d love to be a part of a book club, but I would read at a snails pace. Good luck though. Also I wish you the best on organization.
That was really sweet of your daughter!
Thanks again for helping with the cover reveal. I’ll be sending it out tomorrow!
How adorable your little one is. Give her a sitcom! *smile* I don’t think I know any female who kills spiders. I only will if I absolutely have to. Otherwise, the hubster is called in to do my dirty work 😉 Great list.
What a sweet list from your daughter. That last one was priceless. I hope you framed that list. 🙂
Love, love, love, love, love the list! You sound a bit like me, I once had an eighth grader tell me, “Mrs. Burns, you’re like a 14-year old trapped in a 30-year old body!” Hee hee hee.
This list is so adorable! And your daughter has the prettiest eyes. 🙂
