And Now For Something Completely Different...


Shrubbery!

Book Blogger Appreciation Week is now coming to a close. It's been a fun week and I've learned so much about other book bloggers.

Reminder about the giveaway - leave a comment HERE for a chance to win a free copy of The Circle of Friends, Book IV...Mike. Contest ends on September 22nd.

Monday I had a scheduled post, so I was unable to mention some blogs of note that did not make the voting cut. I shall do so now! And I am limiting myself to four sites. Please no one feel left out and there's several I'd love to mention that did receive a nomination, too. Just check out my blogroll for more awesome book bloggers!

TexasRed Books
She reviews and posts on a variety of subjects, and you gotta tune in on Wednesdays for her prairie dog!

Jo-Jo Loves To Read
This is one of the nicest book bloggers I've ever met. Her blog has simply exploded over the past few months - check it out and see why!

Missy’s Book Nook
She's more than books - I just love all her retro posts! I was an 80's teen, so it's like a trip down memory lane...

Always Something To Read
Chantele is amazing - and she goes the extra mile in everything she does!

You girls are all tops in my book!

BBAW prompt for today - Setting Goals. What do I like best about my blog right now and where would I like my blog to be a year from now?
I like that I finally have a structure as far as posting, and I've managed to give it a little personality, too. (My sidebar will reach to Mars soon!)
A year from now? Five times the followers and ten times the commenters! I'd like more author guest posts & features, and book giveaways. I will probably never have time to review books (too busy writing) but I can do everything else!

Okay, in the news briefly:

Amazon will soon require that everyone participate in the Search-Inside-The-Book Program: Media Bistro
They've already switched to pdf uploads ONLY.

And Jo-Jo mentioned me in her blog Monday regarding great bloggers who missed the cut: Jo-Jo Loves To Read
Aw, thanks so much!!!

*Video of the Day!*

If you have not seen these videos for Norton Anti-Virus Spyware staring Dokken, then you have to check out all three! This one is 'allow' - and there's another 'allow' and a 'deny.'


Is that just too funny or what????

Thanks for the book blog links, Diane! I'll have some good places to visit.

I don't remember Dokken! But the commercial is hilarious.

Great goals and great links to other bloggers!

In honor of BBAW I created several blog awards. You have a couple on my page. I think you'll more than anyone will appreciate the theme or mascot that I chose.

You really are the best!!

Crystal Clear Proofing said...

Very creative video!

Those whose blogs you mentioned are indeed noteworthy! A couple of them are on my blogroll - I'll have to check out the others!!

Congratulations on your awards and on a great week of BBAW blogging. It's been fun!

BBAW was a lot of fun! I highly recommend participating if your blog features authors & books.

And this video cracks me up every single time! Gosh, I remember Dokken when... And you should see the other two commercials - 'deny' is really funny, too.

Missy said...

Diane: Thank you so much! :)
It warms my heart that you mentioned me...makes me feel special!

How funny that you posted a Dokken video! If we had known each other back in the eighties, we would have for sure been best buddies...our tastes in music and movies from back then is so similar! Be sure to check out my flashback posts for this weekend - I am not sure if it is tomorrow or Sunday's post, but I have a Dokken video posted as well. Great minds think alike.

Have a great weekend, my friend!

Jai Joshi said...

That Dokken ad was hilarious!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Jai, isn't that ad great? I about died the first time I saw the 'deny' version.

Missy, I bet we loved all the same bands! Dokken, Def Leppard, Ratt, BonJovi, Journey...
I will be looking for your post this weekend!

TexasRed said...

Thank you so much for the blog love! I've really enjoyed meeting you this year, too! Looking forward to all the developments between now and BBAW 2010!
