Sorry I didn’t get this posted Wednesday as planned, but I have been battling a vicious cold that won’t go away.
First, I want to thank everyone for visiting my blog in the last few months. When I first re-launched the blog I had no idea of what to expect. I thought that maybe I’d get a few visitors and have a couple of authors be guests every now and then while I blogged about books and other things. That would be it.
However, it has definitely exceeded my expectations. Since I re-launched the blog in October, I have had close to 10,000 hits! While that number may seem really, really small compared to all of the other blogs out there, it is a pretty big number to me…especially since I didn’t even think I’d reach 1000…LOL…and considering I haven’t done much promotion on my own and I am just a reader, I am surprised and happy with the number.
Because of the overwhelming response I have had to the blog, I decided to make a few minor changes…nothing major.
Here are a few of them…other changes will be announced as they are made:
I hadn’t planned on having many guests when I first started the blog, but I am thrilled by the author response and love having guests (plus you readers seem to enjoy them…at least I hope so).
So 2008 will feature many more guests…blogs, interviews, promos, and even a blog party or two.
In fact, starting next week things will be heating up here on the blog as I have an Aphrodisia Author Blog party!!! And then the entire month of February is going to be one long party as I welcome Zebra authors to the blog!
I can’t wait and hope readers enjoy it!
I will try to keep the guest schedule in the sidebar updated weekly so you can get a better idea of what’s coming!
Because of the change in the number of guests, the regular schedule I had originally developed will undergo some changes, but won’t officially take effect until March due to the blog parties. When I don’t have a guest I will still follow the schedule, but I have decided to tweak it a little bit.
Check back over the next few days since I plan on making the changes to the schedule in the sidebar.
(*ETA: The regular schedule has been updated…let me know if you have any suggestions!)
I have also decided to try to do a book review (or more) each month. This will be similar to the “What Are You Reading?” blogs I have done (and will continue to do), but a bit more in depth. I plan on being honest with my book reviews. I won’t rate the books since I am not very good at that sort of thing, but I will share my opinion of the books.
I also would like to feature more readers (since I am a reader and this blog was started for readers)…so READERS this is where you come in.
If you want to be interviewed please contact me! I would love to feature you!
So those are the most important changes. Let me know if you have any questions! I hope this made sense since my brain is a bit fuzzy from my cold.
Continue to check the sidebar for more changes as we go! You never know…more changes might be made.
