The Weekly Write-Up: ‘Merica

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. Happy Fourth to my American readers! I didn’t do anything red, white, or blue yesterday, yet my experience felt completely American. 😛 More details below. Jump to: It’s My Life On the Blog Links I Lurve Book Bumblings It’s My Life It was a somewhat normal workweek for me. Busy, but solitary. I worked from home a lot more than normal and I gotta say, I felt lazy but in this heat I did not miss the subway – […]

The Weekly Write-Up: Bonjour, America!

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. (*This post includes affiliate links.) Bonjour! So I’ve been back from Paris for a week now and I’m finally going to bed at a reasonable East Coast time (later than 8 pm). So I’ve always known my brain doesn’t like change; turns out neither does my body. Jump to: It’s My Life On the Blog Links I Lurve Book Bumblings It’s My Life As I mentioned in my last weekly write-up, I was in Paris for business for […]

The Weekly Write-Up: Bon Voyage!

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off.   Ugh, I know. I’m the worst. I am the worst blogger. Any scheduled review that wasn’t set in stone has been pushed back. Bumblings Blog Tips have slowed to to a halt. And I haven’t even done a write-up in awhile, let alone the BEA recap I really want to write. Explanation below. Jump to: It’s My Life On the Blog Links I Lurve Book Bumblings It’s My Life   My new job is so hard! It’s […]

The Weekly Write-Up: I’m a New Yorker Now

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. I owe you a week! I’m so sorry that I skipped TWWU last week, but this one will be super long and action-packed to make up for it! Jump to: It’s My Life On the Blog Links I Lurve Book Bumblings It’s My Life So, last time we chatted, I had just had my last day at my old job. Since then, I spent two weeks spending 6-8 hours a day going through my apartment, deciding what to […]

The Weekly Write-Up: Funemployment

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. So this recap is really late, later than usual. But you know what? Hackers suck. I was looking at my analytics Monday night and noticed a suspicious amount of organic search traffic, and sure enough, logging into GWT showed some seriously sketchy searches driving traffic to my site. Yep, I got hacked. Unfortunately, there are just a few other things going on in my life right now, and couldn’t even devote time to fixing it right away. Tuesday […]

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. So many changes! So last week, I gave notice at my current job, formally accepted an offer for a new one, started filling out quotes for moving companies, and boxing up my belongings. Things are a little busy. Jump to: It’s My Life On the Blog Links I Lurve Book Bumblings It’s My Life So, yeah. Like I said last week, I accepted an offer for a new job and will be moving to New York City in a few […]

The Weekly Write-Up: Big Changes Afoot

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. So, this post is coming late again. I can’t even be sorry about it.

As in, yesterday I accepted a new job offer, and today I gave notice at my current company. And with the new offer comes moving to a new city. And that city is NYC! And traveling overseas.

The Weekly Write-Up: Loving My NetGalley Ratio

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. Hey everyone! Sorry for being late…again. Maybe I should just start saying this feature gets posted on Mondays and Tuesdays, because Sunday just hasn’t been happening much lately. #wompwomp But I did a TON of blogging stuff on Sunday, anyway, so I’m trying not to feel guilty about posting late. Because of the Write On Review-a-Thon, I was finally able to get my NetGalley ratio over the recommended 80%! And then I kept going until it hit 90%, […]
