Another month in 2014 almost gone and a few weeks closer to my 1st Blogoversary. Sitting here in October, I would never have imagined that I would have posted over 40 book reviews and be AHEAD on writing those reviews. The next review I write will post in 2015. Over the next month I’m working on developing a challenge with Julie and Rose over at ChapterBreak.net. Be on the lookout for that in November. And I’ve started thinking about some kind of giveaway for my Blogoversary. Not sure what it will involved yet, but if you have ideas, suggestions or advice, please share in comments!

Well, a lot has happened in just a few short weeks. I’ve kicked off a new feature, Scenic Sundays, and I took the giant leap over to a WordPress self-hosted site. I’m still finding my feet in this new venue, but so far so good. Thanks to the Review-a-thon hosted by The Book Vixen I was able to catch up on my book reviews and getting them scheduled. I can now safely post 2 reviews a week from now until the end of the year. Of course, every week is in flux as I help promote books and authors I find eye-catching. I’ve made some great progress on my GoodReads Challenge. After stalling out on the 2014 TBR Challenge and the bingo card challenge I was participating in, I think in 2015 I’ll stick with the just the GoodReads Challenge. I’m too much of a mood reader to tackle my TBR pile–sometimes I just need a new book. Ah, the smell…*sighs* That should make these updates a bit easier in the next year.

UPDATE! There’s been some interest from others about joining in on my new feature. I’ve created an interest form. Please fill it out if you would like to participate in Scenic Sundays. There’s some changes coming folks. I hinted at it last week during the Back to School Book Blogger Challenge. And while I initially thought I would wait until the New Year to roll out a feature for my photography, after working on a couple photo projects (Project #1 and Project #2) this last weekend, I decided to roll it out starting in September.My last The Sunday Post will be on August 31, 2014. While I have enjoyed doing The Sunday Post , it has become somewhat rote for me and I’m not really investing time to think about that post. I just list what I posted on my blog and what’s coming up. I don’t buy many books so adding a book haul seems a bit much and I’m not that great at keeping track. I do plan to stop by The Sunday Post each week because there are some wonderful participants and I love reading their recaps every week. So what’s Sunday hold for Second Run Reviews […]
