I guess I warned you this would be a rambling post....because I have had a lot of thoughts in the last couple of days. One of the things that I really wanted to do on here was write down my resolutions for the year--but I haven't really formulated them completely yet. I had wanted to do a kind of #365 project with my blog still this year--but not always writing...doing something with blogging everyday. Like networking, scheduling, planning, layout messing etc. I had even been thinking about how I want to do more of what I started this blog for: reading, knitting, and lesson sharing--so even making sure I do one of those everyday. But I haven't really figured out how I will work that. Though this weekend I sure did knitting and reading. Finished my first book of the year :)
Another thought I have been having is how much I love reading other people's blogs. I have been especially touched this weekend by my awesome sister-in-law who decided that she wanted to do a #365 project like I did in 2013 in her 2014. I wish her the best of luck!! It is quite the journey and I learned so much. Go check out her blog, Decidedly Nikkie.
But the other reason that I really needed to blog today is that I really want to do Bout of Books 9.0. This is the first time I actually feel like I might do well with the Bout of Books because I got in a good rhythm with my last two read-a-thons. I am even trying to do more with the Twitter chats this time too. That's what happens I suppose when your week night responsibilities calm down...maybe one of these days I will explain that one. But anyway... I need to declare my participation and sign-up. Tomorrow I will post my goals...and a more coherent post :)
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
