So, if you guys didn’t notice, I kind of failed at blogging last year. Not only that, I majorly failed at hosting the contemporary challenge. I’m so sorry for that. Life got in the way of blogging and I just couldn’t keep up. My focus really had to be on other things for a little while. Life has calmed down again and while I expect it to be a little crazy again once I’m back in school for the semester, I do finally have some time to read and blog.
I’m sad to announce that I’m going to be taking a brief hiatus from blogging. My computer crashed early last week and while I’m working on getting a new one, it’s going to take a little time. I don’t know how long it’s going to take but I promise that I will be back as soon as I can. I have a few things scheduled and all blog tour posts are ready to go but that’s about it. I guess I’ll just work on getting some reading done and getting some reviews stocked up.
See you guys soon!
Oh and there are the usual RSS and email subscriptions if you prefer those methods!
I know this is a little late but I wanted to mention that I now offer advertising through BlogAds! I have been wanting to offer advertising space for authors, publishers, and bloggers for quite some time but I only recently decided to take the plunge. BlogAds has turned out to be perfect for me and I look forward to featuring awesome bookish ads here on Katie’s Book Blog for the foreseeable future.
I also wanted to let you know that all proceeds from advertisements actually go back into the blog in some way or other. I certainly don’t make a ton of money from advertisements but what I do make I spend on shipping costs, books for giveaways, blog design, and book conferences such as BEA/ALA where I can get new books to feature and find out about new bookish stuff to share with you guys.
If you are interested in purchasing a blog ad, you can click on any of the ad spaces in the sidebars where it says Buy A BlogAd! My blog stats as well as prices are listed on the BlogAd page. Prices range from $10 for a week advertisement to $20 for a week advertisement.
If you want to know more about blog advertising, feel free to comment or email me!
If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I was given the chance to review an awesome bookshelf from CSN. Recently I was contacted by them again for another review. This time I am able to pick any product from one of their 200+ sites. It’s crazy. I don’t even know where to begin but I love browsing their sites.
One of of the things that I have been looking at are their computer desks. As a blogger I spend a ton of time at my computer and right now my desk is pretty shabby. It’s not very organized and doesn’t have much space. I have been searching for the perfect desk for a while but I haven’t found anything that really appealed to me until now. After looking through the selections from Simply Desks I think I may have found my dream desk.
Sadly, this one will not fit in my room. It does have all the storage space I would need but I would have to remove at least one other piece of furniture from my room to fit this in. Once we move into a house I might be able to get this but for now I will have to find something a bit smaller.
As always thank you to everyone who entered my contest. I had quite a few entries for such a short contest and that always makes me happy.
Now for the winner:
Yay! I am just about to email the winner and she will have 48 hours to get back to me before I pick another winner.
Now onto the Halloween extravaganza that you have all been waiting for! =]
