But first the Official Announcement.
It is official that I have lost my mind. Why do I say this? Because I signed up for the A to Z Blog Challenge. But you already saw the badge over on the left. Didn't you? (I was going to say Right? instead of Didn't You?, but then there's that whole left/right thing, like the who's on first? stuff.)
Now just because I signed up for the challenge is not the cause for me losing my mind. Although it's my first time to participate, hundreds, even thousands, of you do it every year.
But not only am I signed up to do this fun challenge, I'm also going to be doing a blog tour for Solomon's Compass during this time.
And that combination is the reason I know I've lost my mind.
If anyone of you find it wandering around with a lost look on its sweet little face, will you please send it home? I miss it. And I need it desperately in order to write all these blog posts!
Speaking of blog posts ...
Guest Bloggers Wanted!
I'd like to host one or two of you per month from May through December. Mondays are preferred, but Wednesdays are a possibility.
In addition to regular guest bloggers ...
In March, I'll have a special promotion going on. Sorry for the late notice, but I only thought of this a couple of weeks ago, and my blog posts were already full until today.
March Monday Mania has arrived!
In March, I’m going to be guesting elsewhere on every Monday of the month. And I’m going to do a giveaway on the host blog. I would like to host a guest blogger here at the Tiki Hut on each of those Mondays with the only requirement that my Tiki Hut guest also do a giveaway.
So we will have a double giveaway that opens the possibility of double exposure for each of us.
What do you think? Would you be interested in one of the March Mondays?
Here’s where I’ll be on those Mondays:
3/4 – Patricia Stoltey *** This Tiki Hut date is already taken by Julie Flanders ***
3/11 – Susan Swiderski
3/18 – Rula Sinara
3/25 – Nas Dean
If you have an interest in guest blogging either for March Monday Mania or later in the year here at Under the Tiki Hut, email me at tikihuttime AT gmail DOT com.
I hope to hear from a lot of you :)
Are you a Social Media Butterfly?
I'm more like a social klutz. I flutter from flower to flower, but I bump into things along the way.
However ... I'm not afraid to jump in and try something new.
Check out my right sidebar. Scroll down a little, past the JOIN button, to the Facebook, Twitter, etc. buttons.
See the new Facebook icon? Notice what's next to it?
For the almost two years I've belonged to Facebook, I've struggled with how to distinguish my Author Page from my Profile/Timeline/Whatchamacallit. Finally I came up with something to try.
Going forward, my Page will be devoted to Readers and Book Lovers. My Profile will be geared toward Writers.
If you currently follow me at one place or another and want to check out the other one, click on either For Book Lovers or For Writers. Or click on both of them. It's allowed :)
When you reach the Book Lovers page, be sure to click the Welcome Button at the top. This will explain my goals for the page. Since this is my page, you will need to LIKE it to have any shot at receiving my posts in your news feed. Or if you want to participate in the discussion. For Writers is my Profile, and this is the one you send a Friend Request.
I'm hoping for for total interactivity. Is that even a word? I hope it's an achievable concept :)
That's it for today.
There will also be a post on Wednesday, so stay tuned!
