Hi everyone and Happy Easter! I hope you are all doing well. Most of you know the rough road I’ve been on for the last couple of months regarding my health but hopefully the worst is behind me and I’m definitely doing much better than I was last month. Not a lot has happened to me this last month so I’ll keep this round-up short.
Two of my posts became the most viewed this last month. The first is a post I made about what’s been happening to me health -wise and why I’ve been away from my blog for quite a bit. It’s so nice to hear from you and to know I have so much support and if you want to know what’s happened or just look at the cute picture of the pug I used for my post take a look at: I’ve Been Away For a Long Time – Here’s Why…
The other post, also featuring a cute dog in the main image, was this one called The Importance of Reading Other Genres. The idea for this post was in my head for some time but I took the plunge and managed to write down all my feelings the day before I posted it. It’s a good post highlighting how I believe it’s important to read other genres and why, take a look at it if you haven’t and tell me if you agree with me or not.
The next most popular post after these two was surprisingly a review! The reason why this is a surprise is that my book reviews, no matter how important and popular they are on my blog, never net more views than any of my other posts. But one book seems to have captured people’s interest and that is The Ogre by Doug Scott. It’s a non-fiction biography but an exciting one and worth reading if you like a bit of adventure with your non-fiction books.
A few posts I’d love to highlight this month include the tag I finally too part in, I took my time to do this tag but in the end I’ glad I did as it was a lot of fun. The I Messed Up book tag is a fun tag and I’d love to invite you all to take part.
My post 10 Reasons Why #BookBloggers Refuse to Review Indie Books from January got a revival this month with quite a few new views. This was thanks to Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek for gaining inspiration from my post to write his own, with some very good points about why book review and blog publicity requests may be turned down. My own post was aimed at indie authors and I hope the reasons are taken seriously although the post was written in a fun way.
The last post I’d love to highlight if you haven’t already seen it is my recent fun/funny poem all about waiting. The inspiration was both the daily prompt word: inefficient as well as my recent unpleasant experience of having to wait all day for someone to show up when they never did. How many of you have experienced this? Take a read of the poem: Where Are You?, it’s a fun and simple one and why not leave a comment about what’s happened to you
I wish I had a goal for next month but at this moment I’m taking every day as it comes, getting through it and looking forward to the next. I’m still not out of the woods with my chest pain, it flared up a bit over the last two days, my own fault as I tried to carry some heavier items without fully healing first, but I’m being cautious and hopefully next month (fingers crossed) I’ll be pain free. In the meantime I’m settling down to some fun reading, enjoying a surplus of books which I didn’t get to last month so expect some delayed book reviews as well as a new book haul post coming on Wednesday.
Happy Easter for yesterday and a happy Easter holiday for anyone who is off work/school. Easter may not be celebrated by all but lets not forget it’s also officially Spring now, and in many calendars that marks the start of the year, when we’re finally getting into warmer weather and the world feels like it’s starting to turn more green. Those of us experiencing a bit of snow still feel a bit down with how cold it is, but things can only get warmer in the northern hemisphere so I’m happy and looking forward to it (I love spring – my favourite season 🙂 )
