Sunday Salon – A New Year - Think Happy Thoughts

2010 is here – finally, like it wouldn’t get here and I am loving it already…. one of the only thing that I promised myself to do more of this year is to  think positive, see the beauty in everyday things and learn to appreciate even the insignificant things….

I ain’t doing no stinking resolution – but I think I can hold out on this promise…

I have my fingers in a whole lot of pies for the 2010 year – There is of course the Erotica Romance Challenge that I am hosting, and we kick off on Monday with that and I am looking forward to it….

So far I have met a bunch of ladies that I would never have met if not for this challenge – so here’s to a grand year. I am also doing the Indi Author blog connection thing – That will be up and running on the 18th… I got a little delayed on that one, but I am committed to it – I am spreading my wings with my reading this year….

Not sure where I am going with this blog – I was pirated over the holiday – and the funny thing is that this was the second time in six month. I don’t understand the lure to pirate a blog, these people must realise you are going to find out right quick….

That’s one of the reasons for the blog change and thanks to Val’s advise at Obsidian Bookshelf – All the proper channels have been notified.. I am also taking onboard some of the suggestion in regards to my reviews as I am definitely burned out, so I‘ll be doing alot of condensing and short round up for the month of February… January I am just not in the reviewing mood at the moment… March – we’ll see…

It wasn’t all bad news – I was doing the whole blog surfing thingy and found out I was nominated for  Preditors & Editors Readers' Poll  for Review Site – can you imagine my surprise….

My first thought was “really’ – then “what the hell – let me punch the air and say yes”  it was unexpected but it came at just the right time, I needed that little lift – and I now just have a cheeky grin that at least someone somewhere out there like my reviews enough to actually nominate me and I am accepting it with good and not so quite grace…..

Thank you…

So to keep my blog going  I am participating in the NABLOPMO -  National Blog Posting Month. January’s word is BEST - so I‘ll be posting the best of my day or my thoughts or any silly old thing I can think of – you never know a book or two might find there way in there or a cover or two….

I hope the year has started off with a bang for you guys and I really hope you got to see the Blue Moon and made your wish… I did, I even took a few pic, how silly was that…. 

 

Until next week – cheers

 

From The Sunday Salon site –

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....

That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book

Congratulations on the nominations!! I bet that was a wonderful surprise.

Good luck on your challenges this year. I've been thinking of doing two - I'm almost 100% sure I will...still trying to convince myself to commit.

I like your new layout, much easier to read. :)

Happy 2010!!!

Big congrats to you, EH! That is awesome news re: the nomination and what another terrific way to start the New Year. :)

Chris on 3 January 2010 at 23:07 said...

Congrats on the nomination! And I suppose, working on positive, the piracy is a twisted sort of compliment, eh?

@Donna

Thanks hon... I know you will find a challenge that works for you...

It does help to get rid of some of our TBR pile...

I am loving the new layout as well..
