Hard to believe that the year is half over already! My theme for the year is Discipline, but I don’t seem to be very disciplined…

Books read

In order to meet my Goodreads goal of 100 books, I need to read 8.33 books per month. Got into a bit of a reading rut and I’ve only read 26 so far. I’m now 24 books behind. To make my goal, I need to read 12 books every month. That’s 3 books a week. Even at my best, I don’t think I’ve ever read three books a week. Going to give it the old college try though! *puts on reading goggles*

Blog Goals

Have lots of lovely goals. They even have their own page. They are very pretty goals and, every now and again, I stop by to visit. Haven’t actually completed any of them, but I do stop by to say hello periodically so they don’t feel totally neglected.

Blog Updates

Installed a floating share bar on my blogs awhile back. Found easy instructions at Simplex Design  and it only took a few minutes. I also updated my little “About Me” widget on the sidebar and created a Contact Me page. No recent updates, but I have a few ideas.


Am slowly getting used to Bloglovin and was able to transfer all of the blogs I follow from Google Reader successfully. I hope. It’s a little awkward with all the clicking, but think I’ll eventually get used to it. It was the lesser of the evils when I was trying to find a Reader alternative, so now I just have to get back on the Commenting Bandwagon.

Fun with keyword searches

There are so many funny ways that people find my blog, so thought I’d share some of the more unusual keyword searches:

*parker young shirtless*
*power lunch eat shirtless at desk*
*mammy ryans kitchen*
*hairy alexia*
*hairy italian dominate men shirtless*

I have no idea what these people were searching for, but can only imagine that they were disappointed when they wound up on my blog. Thinking about titling all of my reviews “Shirtless” from now on…if nothing else, my blog traffic will increase!


So the first half of the year hasn’t been all that great. Hoping the last six months is better! Progress is slow, with a few setbacks along the way, but I’m not ready to throw in the towel just yet!
