Blogger's meltdown coincided with my own...
Unless you've been living under a mushroom cloud, by now you've heard about Blogger's recent glitches. I actually have been walking around in a fog and didn't notice the problem until shortly before it was resolved.
The Blogger Apocalypse delayed the posting of Serena's Predator review by a couple of hours, but the biggest effect it had over here was it wiped out most of the entries on Delia Latham's guest post and giveaway.
If you entered the giveaway for Kylie's Kiss, you might want to swing by the post again to see if your comment is still there.
I've had a blogging meltdown of my own lately.
My husband has been gone more than two weeks on an extended business trip and I feel like I'm running a three legged race without my strongest leg. It's just been me and the boys (and the spiders and wasps who were clearly just biding their time until they knew I was the only adult home).
Though I'm loving the extra face time with the kiddos it means less time reading, writing, and reviewing.
I'm also taking a grueling online writer's course this month (two words: Margie. Lawson). As I write this post, I'm currently two lectures behind on my homework. Hopefully my editing partner will understand. ;)
I had hoped by stockpiling a bunch of posts I'd be able to phone-it-in the month of May, but I'm falling behind on even the most basic of blogging tasks, like responding to comments, visiting friend's blogs, and replying to emails.
I have three books in my review pile whose review dates came and went (and went and went). My apologies to the authors. I look forward to reading Heartsight by Kay Springsteen, The Green Veil by Naomi Munsch, and Double Identity by Diane Burke and getting reviews done before the month is out.
Thanks for hanging in there with me friends! I'll catch up soon!
