Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.


I finished Blogging 201 this past week, but I didn’t understand everything, as it seemed way over my head, i.e., like naming my blog’s brand. My blog is where I write stuff to get off my mind as forget me not. I don’t have that many who read or comment on my blog and quite frankly I don’t care much about that. My stats aren’t as important to me right now as writing good blog content is or how I can be more creative. I have a blog, and I can publish posts, and it is I who has to enjoy it for now. Because if it is good enough than others will let me know if they like it or not. Since I’ve been pretty active, I’ve had a few likes already, but I feel that the like button can be a lazy alternative to leaving a comment.

I’ve always found blogging difficult, and the daily writing prompt is good at juggling my thoughts. I just need more writing practice, and I will utilize what help I can. I have another book blog I should probably use for this meme but whatever. One of my goals is to connect with the blogging community and enter weekly memes which I am content with for now.

I also started a weekly feature last week called Thursdays Thought. The idea came from a graphic designer who doesn’t blog anymore I don’t think. Her name is Louise, and her blog name used to be called Adori Graphics. She has her writing blog at Well That’s Just Terrific.

The Book of Life (All Souls Trilogy, #3)I’m still reading The Book of Life, and I should be finished with it soon so that I can add that in the known category. I can’t say that I will be writing a review on it (although practice makes perfect) because it is one of those books that is very detailed and it takes too much effort. When I read a book, I like to read for the sheer pleasure, and unfortunately, that doesn’t include taking notes or writing down my feelings as I go. Honestly, I still haven’t learned how to write a review, and I tend to include a lot of spoilers. So I write my reviews when I feel inspired to do it. I just know that the book of life starts off with two ghosts having a conversation: Emily and Phillipe who are obviously dead. I mentioned last week that Emily was Sarah’s daughter. Scratch that I was wrong. I didn’t know they were lovers or lesbians? Hmph, I learned that in the course of reading this book. The last book in The Lost Souls Trilogy.

I did finish reading and reviewing a short novella for a blog tour that I’m participating in for November. It’s a holiday novella called Merry Mary by Ashley Farley

Merry MaryA young woman longing for a child stumbles upon a Christmas miracle.

Investigative journalist Scottie Darden is photographing the homeless for her Lost Souls series when she makes a discovery that could change her life forever. Under a makeshift tent in subzero temperatures in a central city park, she finds a woman’s dead body with her infant child. Without her cell phone to call for help, Scottie makes the split-second decision to take the baby home. Her initial instinct is to provide the child with food and shelter until her family can be located. But as her fondness for the baby grows, she finds herself facing a life on the run or worse—prison time for abduction.

Curl up with Merry Mary this holiday season. A heartwarming story of the powerful connection between a caring soul and an innocent child in need.

  1. I think enjoying your blog is important, and getting caught up in stats is a good way to lose that blogging love.

    I have six blogs, down from much higher numbers (gradually), so stats are obviously furthest from my mind…LOL. The blog “brand” is probably lost when there are so many.

    But I am having fun. Hope you are, too, and I am getting sick of having to take notes so that I can write good reviews…but, I do enjoy getting some review books that I would otherwise have to buy.

    Enjoy! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

      Thanks for stopping by. This blogging business can get pretty demanding but it’s good to know I’m not the only one who pays no heed to stats 🙂 and yes I agree with the review books you get for free although I don’t get many cause I don’t like to feel obligated I guess.

    Ah yes, writing reviews. Sometimes I’m envious of those who can read a book and then bust out an awesome review without much effort. But the more you do it, the more it becomes natural to you. Have a great week.

      I know right? Thanks for visiting and I hope your week is a good one.too.


  3. It is nice to know people look at my blog but I don’t fret over my stats I would rather spend more time fretting over what to read next!

      Same here. Nothing is more important than a good book.


  4. I don’t bother with stats too much either. I only keep up with them when I need to tell a publisher or blog tour company. It’s something that can really kill enjoyment if you let it rule you. Reviews are hard…I’ve been doing this for 5 years and it’s never gotten any easier. I still have times where I can stare at an empty post and have nothing to say. I hope you have a good week!
