Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 9/4/16

September 4, 2016 Sunday Post 21

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

Last week on FYFA (and in my life):

Not much to say about this week. We’re settling into our school routine, which is good. Other than that … yeah, I got nothing.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention that I’ve noticed the issue with people getting sent to SPAM on WordPress blogs again. If you have a WP blog, make sure you check your SPAM because I’ve found quite a few real comments in there (and I’ve been sent to SPAM on other people’s blogs too!)

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog:

Next week on FYFA:

  • Blogging 101: What Do You Wish You’d Known When You Started Blogging? – I need you guys to help me come up with topics to cover in my Blogging 101 class. Pretty please?
  • Keep Her by Leora Krygier – Review & Fall Favorites Blog Tour
  • Assassins: Discord by Erica Cameron – Review (& maybe giveaway? Not sure if this tour has one)
  • Bite-sized audiobook reviews of Jellicoe Road, Forgotten, Spin and Zac & Mia
  • August Wrap-up Round-Up Giveaway

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Birthday-150 Blogoversary-150x150

Only one birthday this week, so you should all have no problem taking the time to go wish her well on her blog or via Twitter! Yeah, I know, I’m bordering on nagging here, but I’d love to see everyone getting more birthday and blogoversary love on their special days. If you’re like me, and you have trouble remembering to dole out the well-wishes on the exact day, feel free to do it right now. There’s nothing wrong with offering encouraging words a few days early (or late!).

Also, check out the calendar to see what you might have just missed or what’s coming up. (If you want to be added to the calendar, you can always fill out the birthday/blogoversary form!)

  1. Aj @ Read All The Things!

    For Blogging 101, someone needs to tell me how to make graphics that look good and don’t take 1000 hours to create. It’s the same with bookish photos. Mine take forever to set up and then look too awful to post. A few people have asked me how to get blog followers, so I know people are curious about that. Oh, and tips for hosting successful giveaways/challenges/link-ups.

      Thanks for your input! I wish I knew how to take pictures that look beautiful and don’t take forever. I honestly just don’t think I have the artistic eye for it. It’s the sort of thing you can kind of learn, but not really. But I figure I’ll share some wisdom from others who are much better at it than I am!!

    Ah blogging 101! This wont surprise you, but FTC and Legal. It bugs me to no end that people STILL DON’T GET IT. (or ignore it, take your pick!) lol

    thanks for sharing the giveaway! 🙂 Have a great week

  3. Charlie @ Girl of 1000 Wonders

    When I first started, I didn’t understand a lot of things. I still don’t understand how to properly use categories vs. tags. I also didn’t understand how to balance different types of posts, especially tours. New bloggers think they can never say no. Even now I would be interested in good tips on creating graphics and fabulous bookstagram photos.

  4. Got My Book

    The #1 thing I wish I new before I got started blogging was how much time it takes. I really wish that I had built at least a small stockpile of reviews & posts BEFORE starting.

    Like a River Glorious! Loved the first one, can’t wait to get to it! I’ve noticed the same issue with WordPress, in that some of the blogs I follow and comment on often haven’t been showing my comments. 🙁 Makes me sad. Hopefully others will notice! HOpe you have a great week coming up. You can check out my Sunday Post in the link below.
