You might have noticed I have been completely absent from here for roughly a week. I do apologize. This past week was very tough on my family, plus Tuesday was supposed to be a day of celebrating a birthday, but it was delayed for a few days. However I must thank you all because upon my return here, I found some amazing news. Together you have helped this site reach over 3,300 views all-time and over 1,000 this month, plus several new followers. (Welcome!) Also, this site has been nominated for more awards by some pretty cool bloggers. (Thanks!) I am absolutely shocked and humbled by these facts. I want to give them proper respect and show my gratitude, so (fingers crossed) I will write more on this tomorrow.
I hate to say that I didn’t have much time to read this past week, but sadly it is the truth. This means I do not have a new review prepared for you all just yet. (Hoping for Tuesday/Wednesday.) Also hoping on Tuesday to be able to update my other sites with reviews. I do apologize for the delay. It takes a bit more time for me to access and be able to work on my desktop and transfer my review, hence the delay. I have learned that because I am not an author, I cannot connect my site here to the Goodreads site. However, since I am a reviewer, if I type my reviews on Goodreads first they can then automatically publish them onto my blog here. So since I do not have a review ready for you tonight, I thought I would take a poll from authors that use Goodreads and WordPress. As an author do you want my reviews typed here and then in roughly a week (except for this past week) an excerpt placed on Goodreads, or would you rather a full review be placed on Goodreads then published here? Leave a comment or email me with your thoughts.
Now I would be remiss if I did not discuss Hurricane Sandy. As some of you may have noticed, I am located in the Pawleys Island, SC area, but I am from Va. This weekend we experienced some fierce winds that knocked down a few trees, but otherwise nothing major occurred. We all were prepared for much worse, especially the torrential rain that did not come, thankfully. Now most of my friends and family live in SC and my heart goes out to them. I am sending prayers, positive thoughts and crossing all my fingers that everyone, not just my family and friends, will remain safe and unharmed by Hurricane Sandy. She is definitely making history, and my hope is that it will just be a factual account that is remembered and not a devastating memory. Everyone please be safe! Stay inside, listen to the radio, play games, just stay safe!
Thanks again for your continued support. You all are amazing! Have a wonderful night!
