Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

So, I was just wondering....

Whew! Last week was a blur of activity with BBAW. There was so much going on and I didn't even come close to checking out all of the posts, contests and other good stuff out there. Last year I was a new blogger and didn't know much about it. There were a lot of other events that also passed by in a blur.

This is such a great community of people. Everyone has been so incredibly kind, helpful, friendly, funny, smart... the list goes on and on but you get my point. I've noticed that there is always something going on too. It won't be long before the holidays are here (Christmas is only three months away!!!!) and the time really flies once we hit Halloween. Then the holidays roll in one after the other. It's a good thing there are so many clever people out there who make good use of their multipurpose decorations. I was always impressed with the homes that had the pumpkins out for October that were then dressed up as a turkey with wooden feathers for November that were then turned into some type of Christmas ornament for December.

So anyway, back to my point, there are a lot of events coming up and I'm not sure what they all are. I've seen some Halloween contests and parties popping up already. What else is coming up that we should know about? What are some activities in blogland that you look forward to, participate in or host? Go ahead and give us the details! I've got my calendar out to save the dates.


  1. Actually, I'm looking forward to seeing what new challenges for 2010 will be. I hope to plan my reading better, not accept as many things for review and do challenges that are doable for me. No more chick lit challenges, that's for sure. I don't have any details for you, dahlin' cuz you know I'm usually clueless. But I'll keep tuned here because I know you'll get some great answers.

  2. There's a read-a-thon coming up in October, but I'm not sure which weekend it is.

  3. I'm like you -- pretty new to the book blog community and trying to figure out all the things going on. The main BBAW website had a calendar of events that I'm planning to check out.

  5. I wish I knew where to find a list as I am pretty weird about planning ahead! BUT while I am here...
    I wanted you to know I tagged you for a MEME that someone tagged me for. I have never done one so thought I'd try. It is totally up to you if you want to do it or won't hurt my feelings if you don't! Thanks!

  6. Oh, darn Karen beat me to it - I've got you posted at Merry Weather for this Meme as well. If your so inclined Debbie you could just leave a link in comments at Merry Weather too. Double the exposure for just one post : D


  7. The read-a-thon!

  8. I'm planning on hosting a Novella challenge next month. Stay tuned to my blog for more details, but here's the scoop:

    Read 1, 4, 8, or as many as humanly possible novellas in the month of November.


Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I hope you keep coming back!
