Thoughts on a Tuesday Morning

Tuesday, January 5, 2010
Reality hit yesterday as I had to gave up my comfy chair and my book to go back to work. My kids had the day off, but I had to go in and finalize grades and plan for the next semester. Since I am an earlier riser (anywhere from 1:30-3:00 AM) I am also in bed usually before 9:00 PM. Needless to say, I did not get any reading done yesterday. I worked on, make that agonized over a review this morning, and then went back to lesson planning ... so no reading this morning. I am beginning to have withdrawals. YUK!

Blogging about books as I am discovering is not for the faint of heart, and yet, many of you lovely book bloggers make it look sooooooo easy. Does it get easier? Do you get to a point where every review you write doesn't feel like you are sweating blood each time you write a sentence? Just wondering. Between trying to create a blog page worthy of being read and viewed, I am just concerned that I may not measure up. OK enough commiseration.

I do want to gushingly thank J. Kaye for her support, and not just for me, but for all book bloggers. She was my first legitimate follower  of the three I currently have. The other two I threatened with blackmail if they didn't join. I read her blog sometimes three or four times a day, and she always has great ideas, and glowing things to say about other bloggers. I have already learned a lot about blogging from her.

I also would love to hear about other bloggers' experiences especially when you were first starting out. Insight is a good thing. So if you have a mind to give me your advice, criticism, regale me with your anecdotes about your early days, and hey hears a novel idea become a follower (it won't cost you anything),  and I promise to do the same.

J. Kaye has mentored many of us I believe. From the youngest to the oldest of us she has led the way through the world of blogging.
