I was checking on my Bloglovin' follower total and I decided to check to see if anyone had favorited any of my posts, when I saw that BL' now has a comment section and people had commented on some of my posts there and not clicked through to my blog. Therefore, not only was I not seeing these comments, it was also stealing visits to my blog! There is also no way to reply to these comments. Thank goodness Annemieke from A DANCE WITH BOOKS still had the link to the NOSEGRAZE post about other things Bloglovin' had, and has, been doing and they had added the instructions on how to change your RSS setting for Blogger to the truncated jump break view. My readers now have to click through to the blog to view the entire post. In less than 48 hours my monthly view total has gone up by over 1,500. I am finally averaging over 4,000 hits again and I am seriously happy. I will be curious to see if the number will keep climbing until I am back to my usual 8,000+ from earlier in the year.

Some reviewers on Goodreads have been rating diverse books one star because they are saying POC authors are trying to make a quick buck off of a "trendy" topic. Where do these people come from?

Five of the six Beatrix Potter books have to be sent back because they have black smudge marks on them. *grumbles*

Annemieke from A DANCE WITH BOOKS and I will be starting our buddy read of this last Tiffany Aching story *sniffles* in less than two weeks.

It comes in a cardboard folder type dust jacket with a three foot by three foot map of ANKH-MORPORK tucked in the back.



BLOG OF THE WEEK
Elizabeth disappears on occasion, when her musical life takes over, but she has been stomping around a bit lately and it has made me very happy. We have a common love of the weird like Clive Barker, but she has very eclectic tastes and I bet if you visited she would be talking about something you might be interested in. She loves anime and Korean dramas, too.

The Snape themed fanfic titles and summaries in this article are especially hilarious! There is a link in the post to follow to read some of the computer generated stories.
