Random Musings : The Blogging Blues ….

Random Musings : The Blogging Blues ….

Well, as you can see, I have the blogging blues. It may just be the blues … not really sure. I have read a bucket load of books (I have so many reviews half started) but no reviews have been completed. In fact, I’ve been writing the review for Here Kitty, Kitty for over a week and I am completely stuck although I’ve read it a million times.     I am hoping that my week of great reading (it was ACE!) will kick start my reviewing again. I read the new Kate Daniel’s book, the new Tessa Dare and a reread of a Penny Reid and they were all fabulous. I recommend the Tessa Dare to everyone – it is hilarious and charming! So, this really is my explanation and, I suppose, my apology. I will attempt to do more than my memes this week, I promise.

Random Musing – Unexpected Hiatus as I’ve been poorly!

Random Musing – Unexpected Hiatus as I’ve been poorly!

Just a quick note to apologise. I had such lofty ideals about changing things up and over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been ill. There is so many bugs going round and I think I’ve gotten them all! I’m feeling much better today but, I’ll be honest, the last thing I wanted to do was blog. Business should be resumed shortly but, until then, please see below an accurate representation of what my husband has been putting up with.

So, I’m baackk (again!)

So, I’m baackk (again!)

  Afternoon followers… yes, I’m back (again!). How are you all doing?? It’s been nearly a year since my last post.. have you missed me? 🙂 A lot has happened over the last 12 months but one thing has not changed; I’m still a hopeless romantic who loves reading. Especially dirty books.   That being said, the reason I fell out of love with the blog was that it became another job to do after the paying job finished and that just didn’t work for me. This time round, things have to be different. There will still be reviews, events (yes, the sex scene one again….) and blog hops because, quite frankly, that’s what I like to do. So, how is it going to be different I hear you ask? Well, a few ways…. I will be doing shorter reviews and I won’t be holding myself to any schedule. That means I won’t be taking any review requests. I’ll be reviewing whatever takes my fancy. That means this will be… Keep Reading »

On Hiatus…

On Hiatus…

Hi all The blog is going on Hiatus until April 13th (ish). I’ve had several personal circumstances that have to take priority and now I’m off on a holiday! Hopefully, I shall be back with my blogging mojo… I’ll be honest, I’ve had the stuffing knocked out of me since Christmas with everything and the blog has had to take a massive backseat. Love to you all and a massive apology from me [a very tired] Nix

(Another) apology for my minimal blogging

(Another) apology for my minimal blogging

Hi all Wow,  all I seem to do is apologise for my minimal blogging but I have been trying harder recently. I’ve tried to do at least one review and the 2 memes but my long term goal is to do 3 reviews a week plus my two memes. That being said, I’ve done nothing this week. I’ve spent a lot of the week helping plan a family funeral and then (of course) I got ill. Hopefully, this week I shall review some things as I have managed to read quite a bit in my downtime. Just to mention again that Facebook have removed the profile for the blog as I’ve been reported as being “not a real person” by someone (I have a couple of ideas who that is but no matter) Thank you again readers for your patience. I promise to blog more and meme less from now on… unless life gets in the way again 🙂

Update on the S.P.A.M emails from the old blogger site

Update on the S.P.A.M emails from the old blogger site

Hi all Well, I’ve been having a blooming nightmare. So, I found out this morning about the spam emails that were going to feedburner subscribers from the blogger blogsite. Turns out, someone else has taken over the page after I deleted it (I’m know, I’m sorry) and is using it to post garbage posts. Feedburner doesn’t recognise it is a different site and so it burning the posts and sending them to the email addresses on the original feedburner list. I cannot do anything about it… I am so sorry for the SPAM. What you can do Unsubscribe from the email using the link at the bottom. I know it’s a pain, I am truly sorry. What I have learned and advice for future bloggers If you decide to transfer blogs (which I recommend for more control over your content), don’t delete any old blogs. Just stick a holding post up and carry on. I knew someone could take the name but I underestimated what arseholes on the internet will… Keep Reading »

Random Musing : Anyone got recommendations to help me achieve my reading resolutions?

Random Musing : Anyone got recommendations to help me achieve my reading resolutions?

My new year reading resolutions are simple and I need your help. There are certain genres that I want to read more of but I have no idea of where to start … here is my list readers. Help! (PS … on a side note, I seem to like GIF’s at the moment…don’t worry, they won’t be going into the reviews.) 1.  More FF romance Here’s the thing; I found out a long damn time ago that I have no preference on what sexuality the characters in a book have as long as it works. I have read quite a few FF books but the recommendations come in so few and far between that I have no idea what to read next . I want something deliciously angsty and sexy readers, GIMME RECS 🙂   2. More books with characters with disabilities   I’ve read quite a few books with heroes with a disability BUT I don’t think that I’ve ever read a book with a female lead with a… Keep Reading »

Nix Musing : Guest-Posts and Blog-tours : When do I take part?

Nix Musing : Guest-Posts  and Blog-tours : When do I take part?

  This week, I have had multiple emails publicising blog-tours and asking for participation. Sometimes, I have had more than one email for the same tour as the tour host hasn’t got enough hosts signed up and they are asking people to help out. Some people would help out the tour host at this point (because the tour-hosts are good people and send good promo our way) but I just can’t do it. If I haven’t signed up after the original email, there is a reason why. My blog is important to me. The content I put up there represents me and, although it took me a while to realise this fact, I now do everything I can to protect the integrity of it. If I put up promo for a book, it is because I recommend either it or the author and I won’t just put something up there to fill an empty day on my schedule. Blog tours come in a variety of formats; promo blasts (the cover… Keep Reading »
