This week’s Top Ten list is:
Things That Make My Life as a Reader/Blogger Easier!
I’m going to split my list up for you lovelies! Starting with:
Top Three Things That Make My Life as a Reader Easier:
I don’t know how I survived pre-my goodreads discovery but I never want to go back to those dark times again!
This one may sound weird, but when you have kids you pretty much give up on full nights of sleep. And what do you do when you don’t need to sleep as much? Read of course!
My Barnes & Noble Membership
Free shipping, constant coupons and 10%off in store? YES PLEASE. It’s not perfect but when you add a 20% off email coupon and that 10% it makes me mighty happy!
Top Seven Things That Make My Life as a Reader Easier:
I started Read. Sleep. Repeat on a whim and with little research. I went to godaddy bought a domain and went to blogger and registered it. I quickly found out about WordPress and all its awesomeness and made the leap a few months later! And I will NEVER LOOK BACK! Not only is it chalked full of personalization options it truly does work better for the growth my blog is constantly going through.
The Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin
I say it every time someone contemplates the Blogger to WordPress switch. Book blogging is made a billion times easier thanks to this plugin and there is nothing else I can say to make you believe me.
Yes, I know I put this one up already, but Goodreads, also helps me keep up with upcoming releases which is a really big part of making sure my blog stays relative. So two points for you Goodreads!
I’ve made so many awesome friends thanks to twitter and I know that it’s a huge tool when it comes to promoting my blog. Not to mention twitter ranting is so much fun!
My MacBook Air
Look, I know I sound like “one of those people” but Apple has hit the nail on the head with this one. The battery life is fantastic for those nights when I want to read ARC’s on it. The ability to have multiple desktops open and available at the flick of my finger is a tool I didn’t even realized I loved so much until I got on the BF’s HP yesterday. And the APPS! My Kindle, Nook, Adobe Reader, Twitter, and Spotify apps are all at the bottom of the screen so when it’s time to get down to business I don’t get distracted when looking for stuff.
By far the best digital calendar I’ve ever used. I can color code and sync but where Google’s calendar’s looks a bit cluttered and can easily duplicate things by accident, iCalendar doesn’t! And when I’m ready to edit, IT’S ON MY DESKTOP! No opening up the browser going into gmail then hitting the calendar! A d when your attention span is as small as mine that is a big deal!
No matter how tough, stressful and down right annoying blogging get the fact that I have amazing readers and friends keep me going. I’ve grown to love so many of you, and I’m not cruel enough to cut you off from my sparkling personality and fluent sarcasm!
