Sunday Replay #7 + My All New Writing Blog + Giveaway Hop Update

Sunday Replay is a weekly recap of the postings on this blog. I will also be sharing other articles and newsworthy items I've found interesting. I may even showcase some pictures I've uploaded.

Stuff from the blog this week:

In other news elsewhere on the internet..

And.... just a picture of Max playing with the Swiffer (I couldn't come up with anything to make it into an LOL)...

~Writing Blog~

I did mention this on Thursday, since I posted my first post on it on Thursday, but I felt I should mention it again... I started a writing blog! It's just my name, Jessica Sankiewicz, no special title (mostly because I just couldn't come up with anything that fit). I'm going to try to post at least once a week with writing updates and news. I've found a handful of memes I'm considering participating in to connect with some authors and writers. Once I publish my first book, it will no longer be a writing blog, but an author blog! (Cue me squeeing. ) Please follow it and I'll love you forever!

~Giveaway Hop Update~

As you may have seen, I started sign ups for a giveaway hop to be hosted on this blog Monday. Unfortunately, I have not had much of a response to it. Maybe it's because I asked people to email me to participate. The only reason I chose to do that was because I didn't want to invest money into a Linky tool for giveaway hops until I know I would have enough participation. Maybe I do need a Linky tool after all to make it easier to join. Or maybe I could switch to Google Docs and have people fill out the details that way instead. What do you think?

In any case... Unless I get a few more people to sign up soon, I may have to postpone the hop. Maybe it's better to plan further ahead for giveaway hops anyhow. I was just so anxious to have one that I planned it for this month. Oh well!

Much love to all!



  1. You could try using InLinkz ( - it's what I use for all my hops, reading challenges, Music Monday, etc, and as long as you use text links instead of thumbnails, it's free to use. Free = good. I hope more people sign up!

    1. I should check that out. I noticed you were using it, but I kind of wanted one to attach an email for participants to, but I don't really need it after all. I think I'll sign up for that and start over. I haven't had anyone else aside from you even inquire, so... it will be postponed for a little bit. Oh well! I think I should have done it a couple months in advance instead of two weeks, plus the linky thing. Who knows? I'll figure it out eventually. ;)

    2. Trial and error. I've been talking about it on Twitter and FB and G+, so I'm really bummed. Might just be the time of year? I've seen quite a few hops going on. Next time I'm sure it'll be a big success! ;-)

    3. It was most likely because I rushed it, so I'm not too worried. I'll postpone the "hop" part of it for another time and maybe you and I could just go ahead with it. I have my post all set up and ready to go for next week, so, why not, right? Let me know if that works for you!


Thank you for commenting and happy reading!
