October Comment Contest + Life Updates!
I think the September comment contest was a success, so I’ll be continuing along with this idea until the end of the year! A big thanks to everyone who left a comment this month! I loved reading your answers to my questions–it makes me feel more connected to you all! :)
The rules are the same as last time: in order to gain an entry, all you need to do is answer the comment question at the end of each post (barring Pick of the Week, since I don’t do a CQ for those)! The contest is open internationally, and your prize is any book releasing in October. Ideas below!
You could win one of these! Uh, if you want.
I’ve gotten to the point in the semester where my posts will be less consistent. If I go a day or two without posting, don’t fret! There will still be 1-2 reviews posted per week, and I’m planning to keep up with Pick of the Week and TotallyBooksessed. Short Story Saturday is on hold for now.
I’ve been reading three books at once these past few weeks (one for class, one for the blog, one for my internship), so I haven’t been conquering near as many review books. Though my mind is still on the blog, I’m trying to transition my mindset from “the blog is super super important” to “the blog is something I do for fun, but it’s not top priority right now”. I’m the kind of girl who likes to put a lot of things on her plate and balance all of them equally, so this shift is a challenge. But I think that if I try to think of blogging as less of a serious thing that I’ll enjoy it more. :)
Happy October, and have fun commenting! I’ll be trying to return comments again this month, so take advantage of my CommentLuv plugin if you have a blog! :)
Comment question: I’ve changed the blog format so that you can see full blog posts on the homepage, rather than excerpts. Which way do you prefer: the way it is now, or the way it was before?
