This is a challenge for every blogger who reviews books. We all have a stack or more that we haven't got to yet. I plan on tackling that TBR like nobody's business in 2016, so this challenge is made for me.


GOAL: 12 Past-Due Review Books

  1. Just Don't Call Me Ma'am - Anna Mitchael (2010 TBR)
  2. Slip Of The Knife - Denise Mina (2010 TBR)
  3. Corked - Kathryn Borel JR (2010 TBR)
  4. Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts- Cici McNair (2010 TBR)
  5. The Happiness Project - Gretchin Rubin (2010 TBR)


QUARTER UPDATE
As you see, I've got 3 of the 12 books done. Yeah, I thought I'd be at a better pace, but there's a reason they sat on my shelf this long... seems they are usually a 2 out of 5 rating. So not great... But I don't give up that easy and hopefully there's a gem in there somewhere.


HALF WAY UPDATE

I moved up one lousy book. Basically, if I don't pick up the pace then I will fail the challenge. I hate to fail, so I best get on it. The one thing I do notice, is all the book are from 2010. I also notice they weren't that great... Was 2010 the year of bad books??

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.
