Book Blogger New Year’s Challenge – 2014 Blogging Resolutions


Parajunkee is hosting the Book Blogger New Year’s Challenge.  I enjoy participating in these challenges, so I will be joining in as often as I can.  Here are my 2014 blogger resolutions.

1.  First and foremost – don’t put so much pressure on myself to blog the “right” way.  There is no right way to run your own blog.  I know that I host a lot of interviews and blog tours, but I enjoy them, so this content will continue into 2014.  For a while I was reading complaints that too many bloggers are hosting promo type posts, so I have gotten a little pickier about what I feature, but I like interacting with authors and look forward to introducing them to you, so I will keep doing so.

Happy New Year!

Bumble and I spent spent most of the evening cuddling on the couch.


Poppy wasn’t sure she was into that.  She continually dive bombed Bumble’s end of the couch in an effort to get him to play.  While Bumble was hardly amused, I thought she was pretty funny.

Hope your New Year is full of joy and happiness for you and your loved ones!

Merry Christmas!

Our Christmas got off to a rough start, and I had to take Bumble to the local doggie ER.  He ate something he shouldn’t have, and I was concerned, so I rushed him up to see the vet.  Two hours, an examination, and a couple of shots later, he appears to be doing better, but we’ll be staying home today and chilling with the dogs.  It’s given me a chance to try out my new Disney coffee mugs, as well as take a couple of naps with the puppers and read.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and Happy Holiday.  Enjoy your day, your family, and all of those cookies, candies, and cake you keep trying not to eat.  You can always hit the treadmill tomorrow!
