BA News: Coming up, My Life with BA, Reading Challenges, & Posting Challenge

Hello book lovers! November is not kind to my blogging habit and I mostly abandoned blogging for four-five weeks. Time, and my obsession with my novel’s word count, got the better of me. My plans to blog regularly disappeared and I ended up with a few scattered scheduled posts.

I have mentioned in the past I am behind on everything, but guess what? I’m still behind and now even more so. With NaNo, and life, I haven’t been reading much. My life is far more involved and busy than it has been in a very long time. My issue now with being able to read is not about if I’m well enough to read, but if I have the time to read.

Time to read and time to blog. Continue reading

BAsPC: Christmas Gifts for Book Lovers

BA's Posting Challenge 2013-14Welcome to BA’s Posting Challenge for book bloggers! In an effort to consistently create content on BA I thought I would take part in a 30 day blogging challenge (I have to mix it up or else I get bored), but realised I don’t want to, nor do I have the time, to create a post every single day. Instead I decided to attempt to create a post once a week with content other than a review.

This is how BA’s Posting Challenge began.

Now BA’s Posting Challenge has become an annual event spanning the year’s busiest time. November for Wrimos everywhere, December for the holiday season, January for New Year’s and recovery, February for the lovers, and March to finally wind down after all the craziness.

BA’s Posting Challenge is for those book bloggers who want content and can’t think of anything to post, want a break without their blog dying, and just want to join in somewhere with the blogosphere community. This  challenge has a focus on books, book blogs, and personal topics scattered throughout. Find all the topics here.

BAPC: Memes and More Memes

Oh look, my first late BAPC post! Let’s blame it on NaNo. I’m happy to do that. I’m blaming NaNo for a few things… My overdosing of cake and cookies, hand cramping, lack of sleep, and now my lateness with blogs. Of course there’s more awesome things, luckily! Anyway, here’s my post. In future, remember you don’t have to wait for mine to go up. Get yours out when you’re ready!

Decisions for BA’s Posting Challenge

BA’s Posting Challenge is almost at its end and I brought this up last week, but hadn’t quite made a decision with how to carry on. Well, I’ve finally decided! I think…

One of the options I was thinking of was making BA’s posting challenge an annual event running over the course of five months and the busiest period of the year, NaNoWrimo, Christmas, New Year’s, and this includes Valentines for all you lovers and Mardi Gras! This is the option I’m going with. Those months can become hectic and make blogging a trial to keep up with. I don’t know about everyone else, but I like the idea of having one topic ready to go every week. It takes the pressure off and lowers my stress levels. No one needs any more stress during NaNo, oh yeah and Christmas, but mostly NaNo. Continue reading

That’s right! BA’s posting challenge is coming to an end! I don’t know about you guys, but the time felt like it went by fairly quickly. If you’ve taken part, I would love feedback. You can comment in this post, or feel free to send me an email via the below feedback form.

This is what I would like to know in particular;

  • What didn’t you enjoy about the challenge?
  • Did you feel there was something missing?
  • Would you take part in another, or similar, challenge? (why or why not)
  • Would you prefer the challenge be a continuous meme, or do you think it motivates you more by being a time-sensitive challenge?

Of course, those are just the more pertinent queries I have, but you’re welcome to tell me any thoughts coming to you in regards to the challenge. I would appreciate any and all feedback. Continue reading
