BA News: Too Many Things, Not Enough Time

Where to begin? Good question…

I guess the most major news first, the one thing to mostly affect my schedule and posting, is I got a job. I’m temping at BookFari. BookFari is an online book store based in Australia. It’s possible you would’ve noticed the name mentioned on Bookish Ardour as I have been linking to BookFari in my reviews for a while now.

A friend, who works there, is going on maternity leave and I’m going to be filling in for her. At the moment I’m learning the ropes part-time, which probably wouldn’t disrupt your usual blogging schedule that much. I tend to become disrupted with just about everything when one thing changes, so I’ve been trying to get my bearings and haven’t been focusing so much on blogging till I’m settled. Oh the fun times to be had when you have OCD and brain fog. Haha.

Funny story – I haven’t seen my Kindle in over a week and thought I’d lost it on the train. Nope. I found it this morning! It was tucked into a pile of mail I have also been neglecting. Haha. Ha.

So far I’m enjoying working for BookFari and of course it’s always going to be good when you’re surrounding by books at work. Currently they’re having a clearance sale. There’s too much stock in the warehouse and it needs to go, as soon as it can get going, and the prices are pretty cheap. So while the store is online, at the moment I’m working in the pop-up store located in the building and the temptation… oh boy! I have to avert my eyes so often, it’s not funny. Anyway, if you’re interested in checking out the pop-up store, BookFari is located in Rosebery (near Green Square and Mascot) and you can find the address here. Continue reading

BAsPC: Blogging Tools and Aides

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. Continue reading
