I feel like I've been kind of hidden behind different things going on my blog these past could of days. I guess writers block hits us all at one point. Sometimes I think that people don't want to read all the personal 'junk' I throw up on this little webpage, but I have to remind myself that it really doesn't matter what they think and that I should just write what I am feeling or doing. Heck, I started this bloggy home to do just that! So here's what has been going on the last couple of weeks/days...
We are finally moved back into our apartment. The floors are either entirely new or they have dried them out. Because of the flooding from our washer though we've been talking with our insurance company about claiming some things like our bed that absorbed the water into the wood, and the U Haul that we had to rent to put all of our things in while staying in a hotel. I have scanned and emailed all the receipts and such to our All State agent but still haven't heard a reply. Talk about stress! I am very happy to not be living in a hotel room anymore though!
We've been having a little bit of money troubles (mostly because of me sadly) and are now throwing around the idea of breaking our current lease to move into a cheaper apartment, saving us $200-$300 a month! The only deal breaker will be how much we'll have to pay in to get out of this lease and knowing if we'll get back any of our security/pet deposit money back. Cross your fingers that it all works out.
I have also been busy, busy with thinking up new ideas for the month of April. You already know about my Bloggy Book Club that I am super excited about. There's also going to be a special Q&A session with one of my favorite authors! Included in all of this fun stuff are lots of special posts that I have been lacking here for the past couple of months for my sponsors. I apologize for not giving my past advertisers the correct treatment and spotlight that they deserve! I feel like a very bad sponsor host. *Insert sad face here.* To change that though, I have mad a fun little schedule for myself to make sure that they get the best treatment that I can give them. This will include a 'Meet My Sponsors' post, 'Links That I Love' post each week with links back to their blogs, Twitter and Facebook love throughout the month, and a 'Sponsor Wrap-Up' post at the end of the month. Oh, and I can't forget about my 'Sponsor Goody Bag Giveaway'! If you are interested in being a sponsor check out my sponsor page. I'm even doing swaps!
I'm very excited with how many followers I have now. Okay, compared to some blogs 37 followers is not a lot. BUT to me I am ever so grateful for those of you have gotten at least one thing out of my blog! I'm planning on doing more link-ups and trying to become closer friends with bloggers. I have a hard time becoming friends with someone I have never met, so maybe I'll start looking for bloggers in Washington. There are a bunch, I know that! Speaking of meeting bloggers... I really hope that I will be lucky enough to be able to snag a ticket to the PNW Blogger Meet Up in Portland. There are only 50 tickets and by the sounds of it, there are a lot more than that interested. I would love to meet some of the lovely ladies that are behind some of my favorite blogs!
Now... I need all of your opinions on this next one! I am looking at getting an e-reader/tablet. I am really interested in the Kindle Fire, but have heard that if you are looking for more of a tablet you will be disappointed. Would you recommend the Kindle Fire, The Nook Tablet, The Kobo Vox, or any other? I really would like to know your opinions before I take the plunge!
That is all for now on my little update post. I'm sure I'll be getting in the groove of things soon! Hope you all have a spectacular weekend!
