BA News: Stalled and Recovery

Hello lovely readers. I wanted to do a very quick update. I recently had a stay in hospital, it was very short, but the impact has been quite significant. Well, it feels significant at the moment because I’m struggling today, but I’m doing ok. I’m recovering, but it’s a slow process, and pushing myself to type is on the hard side.

It’s been almost two weeks since being in hospital and I still have had posts going up, but they’ve all been scheduled. The scheduled ones have run out now though so there aren’t really going to be any posts until the new year, unfortunately. There might be a couple of reviews, but that’s about it, I think.

As for challenges, please continue to post your links, sign-up for the 2013 ones, and share your wrap-ups for 2012. Even if I’m not around for a little while, the challenges will continue to be available to you. I still welcome feedback as well and apologise to those who have submitted feedback without response. Please know that I may not be able to respond for a time, but I will read all your forms of contact (comments, feedback forms, emails). I may be finding it difficult to type, but I can still read your emails.

When it comes to any problems however, I’m sorry if I take time to get to you. I may not be able to respond to anything but, like with emails and feedback, I will read everything and add your enquiries and concerns to my to-do list when I’m online again.

Until then, have fun reading, have a great holiday season, and be safe!

BA News: 2013 Challenges Open and 2012 Challenges

I will try and get this out before my brain decides to completely shut down (that was a lot of brain work for some reason)….

2012 Challenges Have Their Own Posts!

In order to make way for 2013 challenges, I have put sign-ups, reviews, and wrap-ups in their own posts. I have been posting them all day long. I know they aren’t closed yet, we still have some 2012 to go, so in order to find everything easily I have linked it all up like crazy.

Where the Links at

  • In the Sidebar: You will find what you need via the sidebar under the link – 2012 Reading Challenges – which is located in the Challenge Quick Links Menu.
  • In the Posts: Every post will have a link up to what you need – 2012 sign-ups, reviews, and wrap-ups, as well as a direct link to 2013 challenges and the challenges F.A.Q.
  • On the Main Challenge Page: I’ve added a Quick Links Menu on the main challenge page for all the 2012 posts.
  • On Each Challenge Page: I’ve added a Quick Links Menu to each of the challenge pages as well.

BA News: Went and Got a Makeover

Sometimes I really love a good makeover, usually related to websites and blogging, and of course BA is going to be subjected to that! We’ve got a completely new theme happening now. It’s lighter and brighter, a good accompanying background to what is meant to be Spring here in Australia, but it keeps raining…

With a new colour I’ve also cleaned up some of the pages, and soon I’ll be integrating BA’s Reading Challenges here in time for next year (there’s still time to sign up, read some books, and post reviews with the current reading challenges) with a couple of new challenges.

And starting from tomorrow we’ll be having two new weekly memes! More on that when they get posted.

So what do you think?

BA Reading Challenges Summary For Jan 2011

Comic From Wondermark

For those who don’t know, new followers or you just missed it, I host several reading challenges over on the blog titled BA Reading Challenges and even though people’s reviews are listed on the blog, I’m going to be posting a list of them here every month for those who aren’t taking part, but would still like to see what everyone is reading.

I just have to figure out how to set it out because I haven’t planned ahead (I’m also half asleep and have a very high blood sugar level so this shall be interesting!). Every challenge named will link back to the original sign up post for anyone who wants to find it and from there you can find the review pages and whatever else you need.

And remember, if you haven’t joined in yet and wish to do so you can sign up at any time during the year. You also don’t need to have a blog to do so, you can crossover, and you can change levels! Thanks to everyone who has joined in so far!
