I started an Instagram account for the blog. To follow, go to https://www.instagram.com/bookwormatthegym/. The things that are posted there are blog related and a little different than what I post here. Feel free to follow me there, too.
Well, it seems like we got there! There are actually a lot of posts that have yet to be published. They are scheduled and ready to go over the next couple of weeks.
We are well on our way to 2000 posts.
When I post from my phone, I cannot see how many posts I’ve written. When I’m on the computer, I can see the count. I saw it this week. I am just over 1470 posts. I have several scheduled for the next couple of weeks, so I know I’ll make it.
When I first started the blog, I never imagined I’d like writing so much. I thought I’d run out of topics. So far, I haven’t.
Thanks to those of you who follow and give me ideas about what to write about. Keep the ideas up! I hope to be getting back to my adventures soon.
I know that most of us can’t visit our moms, but don’t forget to contact her. Call her, Zoom with her, send a card (do this ahead of time).
I hope everyone can get out and celebrate Mother’s Day later. Better late than never, right?
I was receiving complaints about the fact that it’s hard to see the links on my posts. So, I attempted a color change. If it’s hard on the eyes, or if the links are still an issue, please let me know. If the change is good, I’d like to hear about that, too.
If you’d like to see Jennifer Weiner on the book tour for her current book, Big Summer, click on the link above and see where to join in on the fun! She won’t be touring bookstores like she usually does, but they’ll be hosted online instead.
It has come to my attention that some of you don’t understand that when I type “The above linked article” there is a link above whatever I typed. The website I use for publishing the blog doesn’t make it so that this is clear. On my end, it shows up in a different color than what the reader sees.
Please take advantage and take a look at the articles. Especially the videos. They are usually worth taking a look at.
Fifty years ago yesterday, according to the above linked article, Sesame Street debuted Rubber Ducky. It’s still a song that everyone seems to know. What would we do without this catchy tune working its way into our brains on occasion? Happy anniversary!
The above article talks about some of the programs the San Francisco library is running for the 50th anniversary of Pride. I’ll be working on more books with the theme this year. I learned a lot last year, but with the 50th anniversary upon us, I know I have a lot more to learn.
I am a little disappointed that these events are only being held at the Castro library. I would think that the information would be made more readily available to all of the library patrons, not just those who use this one branch.
