Work has been taking up my mental cycles lately since I’m now officially on two teams. I’m trying to get used to jumping back and forth between two jobs that are not very much alike and involve completely different sets of people. It’s an adjustment.
Anyway, that’s the reason why my reading and blogging hasn’t been as consistent lately, but I have a plan. I’m going to start doing more fun shorter posts and bring back my rants and raves here (I have ideas saved up). I’m also considering doing a new feature. 🙂
Those life changes, they mess up the blog. Anyone else notice this?

I will now leave you with the back blurb of a book whose premise gave me the willies when I read it.
Um, wow. That is indeed very creepy.
Good luck with work and your crazy schedule!
Isn’t it? I did a little creeped out shudder when I read it.
Thank you! 🙂 Eh, how bad can it be?
I don’t know about creepy, exactly, but… yeah, not very appealing.
And yes, I know what you mean about the rest of life playing havoc with the blog mojo. For sure.
Aww, I’m sorry about work. My RL has been taking over my online life lately too! Ugh, I hate that. 🙂
Ewww, that’s an awful blurb/book. What were they thinking?
I thought that might be happening with you – it felt like you were online less lately.
The only explanation I have was that it was published in the eighties, the height of the “bodice ripper” (which is a term I hate, but which describes this book) and this rape-seduction thing was more common then? Eh, it still doesn’t make it any less… eewwy.
Yep, real life gets in the way of things. Short and fun posts are easy to do (which is why I have several of them – Want Books, Shoot That Book, Postcard Love). I want to do a feature involving guest posts from other readers but I haven’t come up with a good idea for that.
And what the heck were they thinking with that blurb? It’s like porn in book form.
Yeah, I think they work out well in getting people to respond too. I should do them more.
I’m mostly creeped out that the hero is essentially raping her (and she was a virgin). Then she starts to like it? Eck.
Damn RL 😉 Nah, seriously I’m glad you’re working out a plan to make blogging fit into your life.
Yes, that dang RL! 🙂 Thanks.
Oh my. That blurb freaked me out!
Okay…it named changed my name. Odd.
Indeed. A little disturbing.
Oh, I hear ya re: life changes messing up the blog! I mean, look what’s been going on over at mine: Chris Evans gifs. Oh, wait…That’s not a bad thing. 😀 (But my reading has seriously dropped off too.)
Hope work smooths out for you! (And soon.) In the meantime, looking forward to those fun, short posts!
I’ve been enjoying the Avenger gifs on tumblr! It helps me find out that there’s a new teaser trailer out there. 🙂
Thanks, me too. This week has been UG. And I can’t freaking start my weekend until this one thing is resolved. Meh.
