For Those Of You…

July 24, 2012

Who still read my blog, I thank you.  It’s been a long time since I’ve been here and I’ve missed it… I’ve missed the blogging and I’ve missed all of you. The past 2+  years have been a very bumpy ride, but I’m back… again. I won’t be here posting every day like I used to, at least not yet, but hopefully soon. I’m only about a month into my new job and I’m still getting settled in Arizona, oh by the way did I mention I moved across country? No? Well now you know. Minnesota to Arizona. I’m crazy, right? It’s a big culture shock and definately a major weather change for me so it’s going to take some getting used to, I swear I think I’m melting sometimes, but I’m enjoying it here and I like my job. I needed change and I definately got it. 🙂 

Anyway, back to the blog. You’ll slowly be seeing me update and change things on here and the pages. I’ll be adding and removing some things and hopefully getting a domain name too so I can change the layout to the way I’d like it. Since it’s been so long since I’ve been here I’m having to re-learn things on the site, I’ll be a little slow with the updating and changing, so bare with me. We don’t have internet set up at our place yet either so I’ve been going to the local library (which is awesome by the way) so until we do you’ll only see me posting about once a week. Also my book contests and author interviews are on hold temporarily too. For now you’ll basically be seeing book reviews and basic book topics and random ramblings.

All right, I’m off.

Hugs & Happy Reading,

Bo-Bo Dreaming the Day Away

This stomach bug I have is kicking my butt so I’ve been doing a lot of sleeping and resting and not much blogging, as you can tell. I’ve been feeling much better today so hopefully that continues and I can keep on track with my blogging.

I’ve been meaning to post a better Review Policy for quite some time, but just hadn’t gotten around to doing it. Now, it’s finally posted on it’s own page HERE. You can also see it’s listed in the right hand column under the list of pages I have. I’m currently working on a Privacy Policy and updating my Contest Rules, so stay tuned for that.

I’m also busy getting ready for the Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference this weekend! I’m super excited for it! I’ll be participating in one of the panels on Saturday in the Blue Room on Panel 3 which is about Organizing & Planning Your Blog. If you haven’t signed up already you definately should, it’s going to be a great learning experience for everyone attending and a lot of fun! I did a post about the conference already so if you’d like to learn more about it then click the link above. I hope to see you there!

When something unexpected happens…

March 8, 2010

I know… I’ve been away for months. I’ve missed blogging terribly and I’ve been having withdrawals, trust me, but now I’m back and very glad to be. A lot of things have happened over the last few months, mostly not so good, so those things had to be put first and blogging was put on hold for awhile.

I’ll be back to blogging on a regular daily basis, I’ve got some author interviews lined up and a lot of book reviews coming up soon too. You’ll also start to see some things being changed/updated or removed  and even some new things being added on the blog, I’ll post updates as these things happen.

One update I’d like to mention right now is that I’ll be deleting my blog’s Facebook. It’s just too much to try to keep up with my personal and blog Facebook, along with Twitter and my blog’s Myspace, BUT I did create a FAN PAGE underneath my personal Facebook. So if you’d like to “Become a Fan” and keep up to date on what’s going on here on the blog, here is the link:

Well, that’s about it for now. Here is something for your viewing pleasure…

Moochie and her bright pink monkey pal, Dave.

Talk to you all tomorrow!

Blog Updates

BlogUpdates

Hello again everyone! I told ya I’d be back!

I thought that in todays post I’d tell you about some updates that are going to be happening on my blog and some things I’ve already done. 

First off here are the things I have planned that are going to take place or that I’m currently working on (I’ll have a future blog update post that will let you all know when these things are finished):

~ I’m going to be getting rid of my monthly What’s On Your Playlist? meme. It just doesn’t seem to be that likable at this time. I might bring it back in the future, but who knows.

~ I have a TON and I mean a ton of books that I’m signed up to read and review so expect quite a few new Bubba Dog’s Book Reviews coming up soon! 😀

~ Since you already know that I haven’t been able to blog for the past few months it also means that I haven’t had a chance to check my email much either :/ so anyone who has emailed me about the blog or book reviews or questions or anything I’ll be getting back to you ASAP.

~ I’m working on a new page for the Weekly Words Challenge as well. I only participated in it once when I started so now I’m going to join in again and have some fun showing everyone my photography.

Here are the updates that I’ve already done:

~ I gave in! I joined Facebook for the blog! LoL I already had a “personal” facebook page, but I decided to make another one just for my blog (so I can post updates, when I have a book review up, etc.). So if you’re interested, add me! Plus there is a new facebook application called “NetworkedBlogs” where you can create a page for your blog and people can rate it and follow it. The application keeps tabs on your blog so when you have a new blog post it updates it on the NetworkedBlogs application for you to let everyone else know you have a new post up. Pretty cool huh? 🙂

Create Your Badge

Okay, well that’s about it for now. Now a question for you all:

Got any good book recommendations for me? Any books that you just couldn’t put down, that were just so amazing you had your head stuck in the book until you finished it? 😀

See ya tomorrow!

I Have A Few Questions…

April 25, 2009

I have a few questions to ask everyone and I’d like your honest opinion…

First question…

My monthly releases page (the one currently titled Jan/Feb Releases- I know… I know… I really need to update it). Would you rather I keep it the way it is… updating it every two months with releases I’m looking forward to… OR would you like to see the page changed into something like “Upcoming Book Reviews”… OR both OR something else? If so what? I’m looking for some type of page with a slideshow on it.

Second question…

Does anyone know of any blog designer layout sites (for WORDPRESS) that have pretty cheap/reasonable pricing? I’m looking into saving up some money to get a new 3 column layout made for my blog and someone who is willing to allow me to use my banner still. If so, let me know.

Third question…

Are there any authors you would like to see guest blogging here? Please keep it within the Romance, YA, and Pet genre.

Future Updates Coming Soon:

I’m going to be updating the Contest Rules page sometime this weekend so I’ll let you know when that’s officially changed.

I’ve got tons of authors that I’m in the process of signing up for guest blogging! So keep an eye out! 🙂

I know I haven’t had a contest in awhile so I’m planning on having a contest coming up within the next couple weeks probably close to my birthday. 😀 So be sure to keep an eye out for that as well! I’ll be giving away more then just one book… probably 3-5 but, I haven’t decided yet…

Anyway, let me know what you think or if you have any ideas about my questions above.

Hugs,
