Taking Care Of Business

I have a couple of odds and ends to post about, so bare with me. First, I have an opinion piece up over at TGTBTU entitled Can A Blogger Make A Book? This post actually addresses a couple of issues that I've been tossing around in my head, but that I hadn't articulated until now because I wasn't sure how to not sound like a raving bitch. So go on over and read my take on KristieJ's quest to promote the hell out of Broken Wing, if reader bloggers can truly "make" books, and why reader bloggers should never lose sight of why they started blogging in the first place. I don't care how important we "think" we are - none of us started blogging for the "traffic." Well, at least I didn't.


In other news, one of my favorite people, Lisa(bea) slapped me with the Kreativ Blogger award.

The Kreativ rules state that: Once you receive this award you are to list seven of your favorite things and then nominate seven other blogs.

1) Tea. God, how I love tea.

2) A great historical western romance. Seriously, nothing better.

3) A long good hunting trip at a massive used bookstore.

4) Hooking up and chatting books with the So. Cal. Bloggers

5) Lazy Sunday afternoons.

6) Blogging. After six years I'm still not bored. Batten down the hatches everybody!

7) My family. Awwwww.....

My nominations are:

1) The gals over at Book Binge

2) Renee from Renee's Book Addiction

3) Lusty Reader

4) Tracy from Tracy's Place

5) Miss Barbara from Happily Forever After

6) Sula - lovin' the details on the upcoming wedding!

7) Tara Marie from Romancing Reading Mom - because I hope she'll see this and start blogging again. God, how I miss her!

Dang nab it! I nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger award too! -_-;;;

Hahaha. I'll definitely be checking some of those links, though. I evidently need to start reading more romance blogs, we're all overlapping. *lol*

merci buckets madame! and i am with you on the tea, so homey, and goes perfectly with a good book! sorta hard to get into hot tea in the summer though...but i just crank the air conditioning a bit more ;)

Rowena said...

Awwww, thanks sweetie. We heart our favorite Super Librarian too! =)

I am addicted to spending long days looking for books in a UBS too. Love it! I'm partial to tea when I'm at work too. =)

Great list sweetie!

Wendy said...

AnimeJune: No problems sweetie! There are some folks I would have nominated, but I knew for a fact they'd already been picked.

And if you want more reader blogs? Oh man, check out Kristie's sidebar. She does an excellent job of keeping up with the newbies.

Sybil: You just need more a stable Internet connection.

::waving:: to everyone else. Hiya ladies!

Renee said...

I just realized I never commented to thank you, Wendy!
Your list includes many of my favorite things, too!
Now, if we could just get the SCB together on a lazy Sunday afternoon for tea and a ubs crawl.

sula said...

aww, thank you. :) I'm back at my house with internet access (had been dogsitting for the past week) and was just thinking that I needed to update my blog. So now I guess I really have to. lol.
