I cannot believe I consumed over 100 books in 2016. That's a personal record for me. It helped that I rediscovered my local library after living abroad for a while and that THE LIBRARY NOW HAS DIGITAL DOWNLOADS AND AUDIOBOOKS. *reverted to my six-year-old-self below in the library*
GIVE ME MORE OF THIS BOOK RIGHT FLIPPING NOW. What in the world did I just read? I loved it. It made my heart ache. I couldn't put it down. I want to know what happens next. Please Katherine Arden, tell me what happens next.
(Warning for sexual assault) I've been wanting to read Pivot Point ever since I got the book when it was on sale at Amazon (LOL), but I never really got around to actually sitting down and going through it until now. And I wish I had done it sooner!
The Lazarus Curse was an incredible story that carries the feel of a Kathy Reichs Bones novel with a nod towards Sherlock Holmes. With its accurate historical forensic anthropology and anatomy descriptions and obviously well-referenced historical events, the author blurred reality and fiction and the result was incredible.
Wordpress is home to millions of users. They claim to welcome 50,000 new sites everyday.
Those are pretty impressive numbers. They impressed me and I built (er, tried to) build a website on the platform. I learned and researched and built and struggled and tore it down to rebuild a-fresh only to grow frustrated that the options I was looking for were always just out of reach.
On top of that, I hated the backend. It was ugly and reminded me of something from the 1990s.
The minute you start a blog, your personal priorities and your blog priorities got a little blurry. Why? Because you were already splitting up your time for your job, your family, your friends, and maybe a dog and a cat or four, but now your blog is in the mix. It’s no secret that blogs are a lot of work, there’s so much to do! You need to manage social media, promote your blog, write guest posts, create content, somehow find a way to form a mailing list, still go to your 9-5 job, and the list never ends and oh! How do you keep up? How do you not succumb to the blurry stressful life of an overwhelmed blogger?
