Terrible Twos: A Blogoversary Tale + Giveaway

Terrible Twos: A Blogoversary Tale + Giveaway

So let’s talk milestones! Two years ago, I was part of a blog that I helped create, but alas things just didn’t work out and I walked away. I still wanted to be part of the book community and decided to embark on my own. The name, Literary, etc., was not my first choice and anything I played around with at the time just didn’t sound right. During this past year, I’ve debated changing the name and trust me-it’s a scary thing to even contemplate. I admire fellow bloggers who have done it. Maybe, I’ll get a bit of courage for Christmas. 😉 This year I introduced four new features. While I worked on some of these features regularly, others sadly were neglected. ONE LINERS We look at a novel’s… Read more »

Introducing #bookbrag

Introducing #bookbrag

The awesome team behind the Macmillan Publishers Author Events Twitter account have created #bookbrag. Basically it’s a fun way to showcase your love for all bookish things including meeting your favorite authors, finding an awesome book, meeting other book lovers, and the list goes on and on. The best part? It doesn’t have to be related to the Macmillan publishing house! How do you get involved? It’s easy. On Tumblr: 1. Post your #bookbrag to your own Tumblr blog and tag the post #bookbrag and they’ll reblog it. 2. Submit your #bookbrag to bookbrag.tumblr.com/submit You can also hashtag your pictures / tweets on Twitter using: #bookbrag. I hope several of you will get involved and hopefully find a new author to follow or perhaps stumble upon a cool new read.

Important Announcement: We’re Now Located at Literaryetc.com!

Well…we have a .com! It was an impulsive buy, but something I’ve been wanting to do and wasn’t sure when it was going to happen (either at the end of the 6 month blog anniversary in June or at the end of the year). You have much more control over a wordpress.org blog than a wordpress.com one. Then I saw A Bookish Heart make a post about her new address and how awesome the new host was in helping her move that I couldn’t resist. On top of that they were having a 30% discount and that pretty much made me bite the bullet. Adam from Safe Shark Hosting is AMAZING! He set up wordpress and transferred the blog over. Thank you doesn’t seem enough for his support. I appreciate… Read more »
