Saturday Conversations: Week in Summary

What’s Going on… This week’s Conversation has a duel purpose. First, I want to highlight a couple of blog posts. Second, I want chat… This past week: This week was a busy one – isn’t that the way with holiday weeks? Between wrapping up work for a short week and getting last minute homework assignments […]

Small Problems…

I’ve discovered I am having a problem with my blog feed which may cause readers problems getting to my blog. Those who attempt to click links that will take you to the full site, may instead see a “blank screen”. I am very sorry about this, and I am working on a solution. If you […]

Saturday Conversation: Booklikes

The New Kid in Town With the recent upheaval at GoodReads (documented here, here and here), the buzz on Twitter is now all about Booklikes. While I personally was not impacted by the recent changes made by GoodReads to some accounts, I felt maybe it was time to spread my wings and check out some […]

Saturday Conversations: Archived Posts

Publicizing old posts I’ve noticed a trend lately on twitter, and I’m not sure what to make of it. I’m seeing more and more tweets pushing “archived” blog posts. It started with one or two blogs, but now I seem to see these tweets coming from all directions. No matter what the posts are dubbed… all […]

Saturday Conversation: The Big Move

Moving to WordPress As most of you have heard by now, I’ve moved! Early this week, I made the successful transition from a Blogger hosted website to a self-hosted (thank you GoDaddy!) blog on WordPress. Without going into all of the details, I’ll give you a brief account of what happened to finally get me […]

Test Post: using WP for the first time

Okay, this is a HUGE leap for me. I am making my first post using WordPress. I honestly have NO idea what I’m doing. This is what the post editor looks like: I think I know what FIVE of those buttons mean… and that’s the first five. BOLD italics *add a link* “quote block” and […]

Pardon the Interruption!

For those that didn’t see my drama unfold on Twitter and Facebook a couple weeks ago, my blog was flagged as spam by Blogger and deleted. After much panicking and a few drinks – I am happy to report that I got it all back. But because of this, I’ve decided to finally make the […]

Saturday Conversations 05/11/2013

Feed Readers… As most of you know, earlier this year Google announced that it was closing the doors on its feed reader, Google Reader. On July 1, 2013, those of us that use Google Reader as a means to capture posts from all of the blogs we “follow,” will no longer have that service. I […]

Saturday Conversations 04/27/2013

Managing Social Media… Today I had two reviews posted on That’s What I’m Talking About, and with each post comes publicity. I recognize that without even modest exposure, my blog would collapse into obscurity. So I Tweet (2-3 times per day per post), use Facebook, Google +, Amazon, GoodReads and Shelfari. Also, if the book came from […]
