This has been a busy and exciting week on my blog and in my life as it was my birthday this week. My wonderful husband, Greg, spoiled me and bought me my own laptop for my birthday. Needless to say, I am thrilled! I am still figuring things out and Greg is getting it loaded with software. I have a Compaq Presario and am very happy with it.
I joined Facebook a few weeks ago and Twitter this week! I am figuring out how to use it and even managed to make a big goof up there by posting a tweet with the wrong book tour company I was working with for an upcoming book tour. My apologies to Dorothy at Pump Up Your Book Promotion for messing things up! She has a great sense of humor and was very forgiving. So, needless to say, I have some advice for new Twitter users: be careful your facts are straight before you send out a tweet! I've learned that lesson the hard way. I did participate in my first Twitter party focused on Food Allergy. As many know who read my blog regularly, my son Andrew has food allergies (peanut/tree nuts) so this is an issue near and dear to my heart. It was Food Allergy Awareness Week and the group even hit the top ten trending topics on Twitter during one of the two parties. Thanks to Food Allergy Buzz and Best Allergy Sites for hosting an awesome party! They even had prizes and I won a book, The Unhealthy Truth by Robyn O'Brien .
I posted several book reviews this week. I reviewed Shanghai Girls by Lisa See and The Side-Yard Superhero by Rick Niece . I am very proud to highlight my 10 year old son Andrew's review that he wrote by himself for Herbert's Wormhole by Peter Nelson. He did a great job and I'm very proud of his work. Thanks to all who have commented, he's enjoyed reading all of the comments. If you haven't read it, I'd really appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to read Andrew's review and leave Andrew a comment. It has meant a lot to him to get the positive feedback. Thanks!
