Hi, this is Heather. I can’t take your message right now, but if you leave your name and number at the tone, I’ll get back to you as soon as possible! *beep*
Just kidding; I do actually plan on responding to comments while I’m out—and out I am! I’m busy participating in my Fan Week, and catching up on all the blog posts I need to read, reconnecting with my community, and clearing up the 30+ blog-related tasks I have created for myself.
I know you’ll miss me. But never fear—it’s Saturday again, and if you’re longing for reading material, this is week five of the Love a Blogger series!
This kind of feels like cheating, because I blog there too, but I would like to give a shout out to my co-blogger Rob, because he is a great person, and a good friend besides. Admittedly, he doesn’t always have the time to post often (he’s crazy busy, let me tell you) but when he does post—true to our bio—he is DEEP. You can check out nearly any post: the one about Noir fiction, or the cyclical nature of things, or his end-of-year reflection. I love him because he sees things through a profound light, and yet he’s never too far from teenage boy-dom.
Also, my favorite post of his is called The Trope of the Geek and Nerd, and it was fantástico.
Katie is just a nice person. Really, really nice—and I have a ton of her tags to catch up on! For example, she just did The Book Lovers’ Questionnaire, and let her love for books show. She was a great fan during February and loved on a few of her favorite writers, and she also had some great things to say about the relationship between music and writing for the TCWT chain last month. I love the sincere way she writes, and whether her posts are about her love of books or writing or something else, you just know she’s a sweet person.
Also, if you were interested, she just guest posted over at To the Barricade, with some tips for keeping track of the books you read!
First of all, let’s just stop and appreciate that name, because how much better can a blog name get? Secondly, if you’re wondering where you heard that name before, it’s probably because Alyssa was fantastic enough to guest post for me on Monday! She’s promoted the awesome idea called #Followception, and is participating in Fan Month besides, but she also just had a blog party and it was totally awesome. I also really enjoy Alyssa’s perspective, because it lets her write about Chinese culture and host guest posts about her own WIP's cover (which I am reading and is also something to rave about, but now is not the time).
(Also, she's a great CP.)
And so pretty much I gushed over my favorite posts already so here, look at this book tag, because she talks about books, too.
So, THANKS to Rob, Katie, and Alyssa for writing some of the awesomest words on the street, and you should go visit, because they are worth it.
In the meantime, like I said, I’m out! Be sure to keep checking #FanMonth Central, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook for updates, and I’ll see you a week from today!
