I had posted this on Twitter, but it should go on the blog too.
As of now and for the foreseeable future, I will no longer be doing book reviews on this blog. To be honest, I don’t have the time to do book reviews at the moment. I will still discuss books every now and again (because I’m a geek and books are my thing), but they will not be full reviews. I will hopefully be able to do reviews again in the future (maybe sometime next year). I’ll let you know!
If you’re an author wanting to have your book reviewed, head over to In Case of Survival. My colleagues may have room in their review queues. (If you’re wondering, no, I will not be doing reviews on ICoS either, with the exception of whatever is currently in my queue. I will not be taking more books/review requests at this time.)
Apologies if this affects you. Unfortunately, I need to focus on other things at the moment. (Like the baby I’m incubating.)
So sometimes I might geek out about something. Usually it’s about Star Trek. Or something science fictiony, anyway (because that’s what I do :P). But every now and again I’ll geek out about something that seems like it’s out in left field somewhere.
Like cloth diapers. No, for real. I have a collection, you guys.
Wait, wait. Let me back up. Yes, I cloth diapered my two older kids. Yes, I might be crazy for doing so. Yes, there’s a reason why I’m talking about cloth diapers now.
So I had hoped to start posting on specific days (either Tuesday or Friday, or when I’m really optimistic, both). Except, you know, it’s now Saturday. So obviously that plan worked out well.
I still do plan to post once, maybe twice a week. But my schedule-making clearly needs some help :/. (Granted, this isn’t really new.)
Apocalypse Lesson: Oh come on, do you really think we’ll have to stick to a schedule during the apocalypse? Well, okay, so we might have to if the apocalypse was a slow decline of society, leaving it open for the world to be taken over by a group of Type A tyrants. But if we blow ourselves up, or if the zombies start eating brains, or if the evil space monkeys invade, then we probably won’t have to worry about schedules.
Which is good, because apparently I can’t stick to one.
In case you’re wondering why the hell I’ve decided to use a Christmas design for my blog, the answer is this: I like Christmas.
Kidding. Well, I do like Christmas, but that’s not why I’m using this particular theme. See, I’ve decided to try something new with my blog, and with the whole “new” thing I wanted to use a new (to me) theme/design. (It made sense in my head.)
I’m not changing my focus again — I’ve done that a few too many times and I’m pretty sure I’ve lost readers because of it. On the contrary, I’ve decided to try going back to why I started this blog in the first place — to talk about motherhood and the apocalypse, but with humor and sarcasm, of course (if you’ve stuck with me this far, you’ll know I don’t take many things seriously).
So yay the school year has started. And the weather’s getting cold, the leaves are turning color and dropping to their dried-out deaths on grass that will soon be soggy and covered up by a giant pile of snow.
You know what this means, right?
Yep. It’s plague season. (I think flu shots will be available starting October 15, which is only about two weeks away.)
