thoughts from the Director of Second Run Reviews

I’m staring down another cold or another bout with bronchitis. Something is prowling at the perimeter of my immune system just waiting to pounce. As a result, this past week of writing has been somewhat pathetic. I don’t have high hopes for this week as I’ve given up on getting up early. I’m sure my husband and co-workers are grateful for that decision. I thought I would get caught up this weekend, but with this impending illness, sleep has been my constant companion.

On the plus side, I am caught up on reviews. I’m finished with Winter and I took a few days to work on a how-to post. So while I haven’t written a blog post a day like I had hoped, I have managed to write more than I normally write in a week’s timespan.

Here’s what I have written so far.

  1. Love your site! Can’t wait to read some blogging tips and I am super excited to see how you have formatted your newsletter!

  2. Well, you got FAR more done being sick than I did being non-sick (I won’t go as far as to say healthy hahah) 😀 Good job, and I hope you’re feeling better! The diversity one is the one I chose, but I am also really excited to read about how you follow blogs. I need a better system!

  3. I voted for the What Does Diverse Books Even Mean because I reeeeally want to know your take on that!! And omg, I hope you can shake off this upcoming flu. D: That sounds awful…agh.
