|This is a light blond me.
Can you tell the difference?
So I know that I have been a very bad girl and haven’t been a good blogger or book reviewer since I haven’t posted anything since October of 2010 and it’s now almost February 2011. Ever since I got my first job at Modell’s Sporting Goods store I have been very lazy about posting my reviews of the books I’ve read when I use to post them all the time previously. Also for the new year I dyed my hair a light blond color that most people say looks better on me than my natural dark brown hair did because this color makes me look like less pale so that it gives me a tanned look.
Now it’s 2011 and I want to get back to being the book blogger and reviewer that I use to be so though it going to take some time I will be posting my book reviews on all the books I’ve been recently reading. I recently got a NOOKcolor for myself as a Christmas present so I’ve been reading a lot of eBooks as well as the print books that I can’t help but still buy to read. I’ve also taken the 2011 Book Challenge that is going on Goodreads and I have set myself up to read a goal of 600 books this year.
I’ve recently found a lot of good authors that I’ve decided to add to my wishlist on my NOOKcolor for when I have enough extra cash to buy them. I hope to one day get all the books on my NOOKcolor wishlist but it going to take time since I’m paid minimum wage at my job and the hours they give me as a part-timer isn’t all that great with all the taxes taken out. I hope when I finally do my first taxes this year that I will be getting at least 10% of my gross pay which was about $4,000 though my mom tells me I’m only dreaming.
Okay so I’m rambling on and on about nothing really but it’s been a while since I’ve blogged and I’m trying to get the hang of things again. I recently read Teresa Medeiros newest release Goonight Tweetheart and loved it so much that it finally got me completely into Twitter and TweetDeck which even though I have a Twitter account I never really used it like others do. Now I have TweetDeck downloaded on my PC and the app for my iPhone 4 so I have an organized view of all the tweets I want to know about. I also now know a bit about how most of the authors I follow on twitter mange to keep everything organized with their Twitter accounts and such.
All right now another thing that I want to get back to doing is hosting my live podcast show where I interview romance and young adult authors. Though that might be a bit complicated to do since Blog Talk Radio on February 1, 2011 will be making all free hosts limited to one, 30-minute show per day during non-primetime hours. That totally sucks big time and the only way to fix that is to upgrade to a paid plan which is so damn expensive that I just want to delete my account immediately but I don’t since it’s still a pretty good set up.
