Blog Only 2011 Plans and Issues
- In 2010 I began to get a lot of attempts to spam my blog. I noticed all spam attempts were from anonymous posters. I looked at a lot of my old comments and found none from anonymous posters. I blocked anonymous posters a few months ago and my spam problem is gone.
- I put a new header collage picture in my blog. I might reshuffle the collage soon with new authors.
- I am cutting way down on the reading challenges I will be joining.
- I will still join short term events and read a longs.
- I will continue to post for the Classics Circuit.
- I will try to comment when I can on the blogs of others
- I will try to acknowledge all comments on my blog.
- I am working on some ideas for new projects also.
- I will say whether or not I see a book as a canon status work and why. I know there are ongoing controversies in Academia about this but these are very remote to my reading.
- To Be open to new books and short stories and authors
- To expand my contacts in the blogger world
- To have fun and try to convey to others my love of reading.
