Categories: #WWReadathon, 2012, events, read-a-thon
So, the read-a-thon is over. I didn't read all I planned on, but I did get enough going. I think, lol.I had much bigger plans, but reading on my desktop PC is pure torture, it's like 40 degrees Celsius in here after the computer runs for like 1 hour +. And no, I don't have AC, so yeah, I gotta roll with the blasted weather.Whoever invented summer and high temperatures was looking to pay me some evil-doing or something, lol. I hate heat and it sticks to me, of course. Gah.Anyways, here's what I managed to read:Two of them I did Fluttering Thoughts Read more [...]

Categories: #WWReadathon, 2012, events, read-a-thon
Hey guys! It's been too freaking long since I did a read-a-thon! I loved doing them, I just keep forgetting they're happening when they actually do. Like with Dewey's last 2 read-a-thons I think, I just forgot about them though I wanted to do them again. iFail. I know. Luckily, the lovely girls Rebecca @ Kindle Fever & April @ My Shelf Confessions were kind enough to send out a reminder for this baby right here, or I would probably have forgotten about it too, because, you know, iFail. But they reminded me thank God, so here we are :DDoing some Read more [...]

Last day of the fab Armchair BEA! This thing ends too soon, can't we, like, make it 2 weeks? 😀 Neah, I know. But it's been really awesome!Now, I'm not an expert. This obviously means I'll be giving you some advice based on the wisdom I've gathered in my 1 year and a couple of months of blogging it bookish style. 1. Plan ahead!When you get that "Hmmm, how about I'll book blog too?" idea, rejoice. Now stop and draft up a plan, lol. Think about your blog name, your niche, what you'd like your identity to be.

Armchair BEA: Beyond Your Blog

Day 4 of the fab Armchair BEA! And I missed day 3! iFail, I know. But I'm getting busy with not missing today, lol!So, let's see. Blogging has been instrumental to my writing, that's sure. By that I mean blogging has actually helped me get over the "showing others" terror I've had for years. The simple fact I write posts and some people sometimes respond to them has helped me out a lot, I'm now perfectly at ease with sharing whatever it is I write. Even if it may suck, lol. It helped me finally get over the "writer's block" I always got at around Read more [...]

Authors On Reviews: To Comment Or Not To comment?

Categories: 2012, book blog hop, events
Awesome blog hop organized by Reading RomancesShould Authors Comment On Reviews? Why?First of all, I believe nobody is entitled to call someone more or less entitled to express their opinions and thoughts on anything. We, as human beings, tend to think in absolutes and set our personal opinions as these immovable rules. Everyone has the same right to comment on everything, as long as they behave like sensible adults.I was truly disappointed to see all sorts of authors expressing such narrow-minded opinions as "[book bloggers] their opinion is too Read more [...]
