Where have I been this summe..

Taking Breaks | Like A Book Blogger

Taking Breaks | Like A Book ..

[TAKING BREAKS] like a book blogger.  I’m all for taking blogging breaks when we need them. Or reading breaks. Or any kind of break at all, ever. Life is the way it is. We have to be kind to ourselves, and sometimes that means switching things up for a little while.  Right?  I have taken […]

Time To Talk! Reading From The Backlist

Time To Talk! Reading From T..

I’m drinking the last of my pot of coffee right now and I’m feeling pretty wired. It’s GREAT.   The word “backlist” makes me chuckle sometimes. Imagine me, sitting at my computer, using air quotes every time I type that word, okay? Perfect. Why, you ask? Because every time I find a new title, no matter […]

[MAKING BLOGGY MISTAKES] like a book blogger.  Nobody likes to make mistakes. It’s inevitable that we will have little slip-ups now and then, everyone does, particularly when we put out something public like a website where we write stuff and post photos and get creative.

Manners | Like A Book Blogge..

[MANNERS] like a book blogger.  A few days ago I talked about how I wanted to start a new, positive conversation in the blogosphere and I began by talking about finding our voices when we write online. I talked a little bit about my own writing voice and how I sometimes get a little flail-y […]
