A short while ago, Ally blogged about some of her favorite spam comments, and it got me curious so I decided to look up some of the comments my spam filter found. It was surprisingly hilarious. (And it reminded me of a veeeerry old tag — I mean it, I did this tag the first… Continue reading In which spam comments amuse me
I haven't done a Sunday Shuffle in ages, and then I saw a (relatively) recent blog post that reminded me about them. Louise at Foxes & Fairytales did the Playlist Book Tag. That tag only has two "rules": Set your playlist on random Pick a book to go with the songs that come on at… Continue reading Sunday Shuffle ~ the Playlist Book Tag edition
Just a bit of a random post today. I was feeling nostalgic, so I looked up several knit-bloggers I used to follow, and most of them are gone. Some have announced a move to posting on Instagram or some other social media platform, but many have just vanished. It makes you think. Ten years ago,… Continue reading Sunday Musings
I've been swamped at work the past couple of weeks, so any blogs that aren't scheduled in advance had been a bit behind schedule lately. Which means that WIP Wednesdays have been iffy, and Sunday posts too. Today I was going to do something about the weather and allergies and that's as far as I… Continue reading Sunday Apologies
I'm finally catching up on my tags! Yay! A while back, Ally tagged me for the Mystery Blogger Award. Unfortunately it has taken me a while to get to completing this tag post, but better late than never! The rules… Put the award logo/image on your blog and list the rules. Thank whoever nominated you… Continue reading Mystery Blogger Award!
April is National Poetry Month, so in addition to the other Reading Challenges I'm doing this year I decided to read some poetry. (I don't think I've mentioned it before now, though, because this was a bit of a last-minute decision.) First of all, I wanted to take the poetry books I actually own and… Continue reading Hail, Poetry!
I decided to refresh the look of the blog. It was pretty before, but too dark. I wanted something lighter and brighter. I think this works. I'll still be tweaking it periodically over the next month (or longer, depending on how happy I am with the results) but so far so good.
Here's another go at my Goodreads TBR list! I first saw about it from Zuky @ BookBum, who credits Lia @ Lost in a Story for the original idea. Here's how it works: Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf. Order by ascending date added. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if… Continue reading Friday Reads: Goodreads TBR Declutter #3
I've seen several book bloggers tackling their TBR lists and getting rid of the books that they no longer want to read. I first saw about it from Zuky @ BookBum, who credits Lia @ Lost in a Story for the original idea. Here's how it works: Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf. Order by ascending date added.… Continue reading Goodreads TBR Declutter #1
I was not-tagged for this tag by Ally! (Not-tagged meaning the tag was open to whomever wanted to do it.) This tag was originally created by One World, Too Many Pages, which you can see here! It sounded like fun, so I decided to play along! Find a book for each of your initials (the) Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern… Continue reading My Life in Books Tag
