Update Thursday #44

Welcome to Update Thursday, my own personal meme of sorts where I post an update of the goings on at my blog, with reading, with writing, and beyond. Feel free to borrow the idea from me for your own bookish musings.

Reading...

Books I finished this week:
~none~

Books I'm reading now (and some still):
Beautiful by Amy Reed (TBR Pile Challenge)
Reasons To Be Happy by Katrina Kittle (TBR Pile Challenge)

84 of 1026 E.E. Cummings poems finished (31 this week)

Writing...

Believe it or not... I sat down and revised at least half the second chapter. *everyone passes out* I am so proud of this. Accomplishing anything at this point is insane. I'm thinking of setting a goal in February to finish revising half of my novel. I don't think it's too far out of reach, I just need to utilize more of my free time.


Otherwise...


Just in case anyone notices or discovers this... I decided to check out Wordpress for my blog to see if it would be advantageous. I'm finding it's not as great as everyone keeps trying to make it out to be. It's not user friendly, I get lost all the time, I can't figure out where certain things are... All I have to do is look at my Blogger tabs and know where I need to go and do what. Not only that, but I would have to PAY MONEY to get a theme that works with my blog. The free ones SUCK. Even though I'm hearing all these things all over the blogosphere about how Blogger is not safe to have your blog on because there's a clause somewhere that says they can remove your blog at any time, but Wordpress doesn't do that... I don't want to make the switch.

But, I don't want to lose my blog either. So, I did import my Blogger blog to Wordpress as a backup. You can take a look at my backup HERE. Save it if you want, but it will just be a repeat of this blog, unless this blog does get deleted someday.


Until next time...

  1. Yay for the revising getting done and the goal of making Feb the month to get things moving. I should do the same. Oh and I've noticed the exact same thing about wordpress. There are all these stories about google shutting down sites and I freaked out but I can barely use blogger as it is, so Wordpress was a complete jumble for me :(

    1. You should! We can keep each other going. :) I'm so glad I'm not the only one who didn't like Wordpress! I kept hearing people talk about how much better it was and I thought I was crazy when it wasn't that way for me. All I'm glad for is having the backup.
