March Mini Blog Ahead

March Mini Blog Ahead

It’s time for another mini blog ahead hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup. The first mini blog ahead of 2018 will take place from March 24th to April 7th. This is a great way to get posts scheduled and take care of items on your blogging schedule. I love that it frees up time for me and I don’t feel rushed for upcoming posts. The goal is to add 14 additional posts scheduled by the end of the blog ahead. If you’d like to participate, click the image at the top of this post to sign up. 🙂

5 Year Blogiversary

5 Year Blogiversary

Wow! I can hardly believe that I’ve been blogging for 5 years! When I first started my blog, I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into. I knew I enjoyed reading blogs. Whenever I visited blogs, I would think, “Hey, I can do this!” but I wasn’t sure if I could. But I jumped in and started blogging, posting my very first post on September 10, 2012. So much has changed since then.

When I first started blogging, I didn’t even know that ‘book blogs’ were a thing. I planned on having a “mommy blog”: sharing about my kids, lifestyle posts, giveaways, and more. I stumbled across book blogging and the rest is history. While I do blog about …

Mini Blog Ahead #2

Mini Blog Ahead #2

So, it’s been a crazy busy week at the day job, with our summer library program kicking off this week. So crazy, in fact, that I nearly forgot to sign up for the Mini Blog Ahead #2. Ahhh! Better late than never though, right?! The objective of the Mini Blog Ahead is to schedule an additional 15 posts during June 15th-June 30th (and more if you’re able!) to give yourself a bit of breathing room this summer. I definitely need it, since I’m so busy with everything else. If you’d like to sign up, it’s not too late! Click the image at the top of this post to be taken to The Herd Presents for all the info. There’s …

Happy Thanksgiving! from Brooke Blogs

Happy Thanksgiving! from Brooke Blogs

From my family to yours, I would like to wish all those who celebrate a very Happy Thanksgiving! Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions? I always make pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving. My kitchen smelled heavenly tonight! We also like to eat pumpkin pie (with Cool Whip) for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

What are your plans for the day? We are eating at home earlier in the day, and then visiting family for a little bit. I’m hoping to sneak in some reading time. I’m currently reading Murder, She Wrote: A Fatal Feast by Jessica Fletcher & Donald Bain. Murder, She Wrote is one of my favorite shows, and I’m really enjoying …

Featured Cozy Blogger: Mark from Carstairs Considers

Featured Cozy Blogger: Mark from Carstairs Considers

This fall, I am starting a fun new feature. Over the course of the next month, I will be sharing Featured Cozy Blogger posts, where I share with you some of my favorite cozy mystery bloggers. Some posts will simply be a spotlight highlighting a blog I enjoy. Others will be an interview or guest post.

I’m excited to introduce you to the first Featured Cozy Blogger at Brooke Blogs. Today, I am sharing an interview with Mark, the blogger behind Carstairs Considers. I adore reading Mark’s reviews. His review format is awesome, listing pros and cons, as well as “The Bottom Line” for each cozy mystery book he reviews. Mark also shares reviews of Hallmark ornaments, Disney pins, television shows …

Fight for Your Right #BehindTheBlogger

Fight for Your Right #BehindTheBlogger

Fight for Your Right

Sorry for the glitch with my post earlier; somehow WordPress published my first draft and not my updated one. Oops! Anyhow, on to this week’s prompt: Fight for Your Right. In today’s world, it would seem like we shouldn’t have to fight much for our right to do anything, but that isn’t the case.

I found out I was pregnant for my first daughter when I was 18 and in my first quarter of college. Not long after that, I realized I would be doing it all on my own. I fought for my right take care of my daughter on my own. I fought against family and friends who felt I could not do it. Even …
