2020 in Review: Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles

Posted January 8, 2021 in Blogging, Bookish Things, Checking In // 0 Comments

It’s that annual wrap up time of year again! When I set up the placeholder for this post a year ago and called it “Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles” I had no idea how true that would ring.  I know I was thinking about following through on my personal reading challenge as well as Start On Your Shelfathon… but y’all?  2020 has been rife with reading challenges.  And blogging hurdles.  I am plum worn out. Usually, I use this post to share Goodread’s “My Year In Books”.  This year, I’m going to pull a little data from that page, but they’ve stripped […]

Fall is Here! And So Is My September Wrap Up!

Good morning everyone!  Well, almost afternoon, I guess. It’s been a really long time since I did one of these – usually I spend my weekend mornings scrambling to pre-write posts for future weeks so I can stay ahead of the game… it covers for me on those days when the world is a lot and I have no creative energy.  But, I don’t know… it’s a beautiful day today and I’ve been thinking about doing a weekend check in post for a while, so why not? I’m actually typing this outside, sitting my back deck.  It’s a blessing, this […]
