Over the last week or so I’ve been asking for comments and opinions about a variety of topics and gotten a ton of responses from other bloggers. I love that so much! I figured an update post was in order, in case other people are as negligent about going back to see updated conversations when they leave comments. Here’s where I’m at with some big and small bloggy things:
My 100th Post Celebration and Giveaway: Last Friday I made it to my 100th post and decided to host my first giveaway. It’s going great so far! I’m behind on responding to comments and visiting blogs of new people who have stopped by, but I’m going to get through them soon.
Subtitling Sophisticated Dorkiness: After 11 votes and numerous comments, I decided on the subtitle “A bookworm journalist muses on life and literature” as my blog subtitle. I think that, for the moment anyway, it sums up what this blog is about nicely. I posted the new image last Wednesday night, hooray Photoshop!
NaBloPoMo: Last week I was considering whether to join National Blog Posting Month. After some serious planning, I’m signed up! I think I have enough content to write something substantive every day in November, and we’ll just see about having enough time. Worst case scenario? I don’t win a prize 🙂 You can see my NaBloPoMo page here.
The Unread Books: Everyone loves to recommend books! I’ve decided to keep pressing on with Villette, which I do love, and start in on The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. The rest will be waiting until Christmas break.
