The Sunday Salon & NaBloPoMo: January 16th – Weekend wishes

Just stopping in to say hi and checking in to see if the weekend has been a grand one for you… I am on baby sitting duties this weekend, so it’s all nice and sweet at home with the youngest member of the family going from hand to hand….

As much as I love the little guy, I kinda forgot how much work they are and how much they love to use that set of lungs….

Thank heavens they all go home at six,  I will get some quiet time back and hopefully some shut eyes..

A heads up.

Teri Kate from Bitten by Books has been hosting a Book Blogger and Publisher Online Conference for a little while now and the third one is coming up, scheduled date March 16-20,2011. She has a list of events all put together for the event but she is looking for further suggestions of things that might interest you or fellow bloggers , authors, publishers in general.

Jump on the dedicated blog site Important News - Panels Suggestions and Panelists - Help and see what she has planned and if you have any suggestions please do pass them along to her.

I have been to all the previous events and they have been really good… Not only is it a great place to find out info but I have met a great lot of ladies and gentlemen there as well.

 

NaBloPoMo

 


I am doing NaBloPoMo this January. The theme this month is - Friends
Best friends, worst friends, friends of the family . . . how many do you have, how many do you need, and where are they when you need them.

 


From  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.
