Scorching Book Reviews 2021 : Moving forwards

I think every year I do one of these posts. Every year I set up some expectations but, ultimately, I ask too much from myself and I fail. I have had to stop feeling bad about that – this blog is a hobby; when it stops being fun, I’ve done something wrong. This year, I have decided to focus a resolutions around the ethos on the blog and less on arbitry “I’m going to do […]

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

Nix note – this has been previously published. It has been reformatted and editted. Please know that this is not a dig at tour-hosts – they are small business owners offering a service and I enjoy working with quite a few of them. This is about blog-tours in general… This week, I have had multiple emails publicising blog-tours and asking for participation. I have stopped partipating in the majority of blog tours and there is […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

(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 […]

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 […]
