A Note:


I once told myself: IF I am accepted into grad school, this blog would no longer be updated. As it turns out, in April, I received news of my acceptance for the Fall 2013 semester, where I will attain a Master's degree of Science in Nutrition.

Running a blog, as many of you may already know, is a demanding side job once the excitement wears off. And once I fell out of the blogging community's loop (have you SEEN how many blogs there are now? Wow!), it was like the kiss of death. Despite my best efforts, I couldn't get into a blogging routine once this happened due to the disconnect I felt from the community.

So I took a break. I struggled with the loss and with missing my blog. And then I realized I didn't have to run Book Faery to still be a book reviewer; I could read my books and post reviews online. I'm still a book review blogger, just not in the traditional sense.

I'll still be online. You can chat with me on Twitter, where I'll be posting links to my reviews and talking books. I'll also be posting links to nutrition articles. And if you'd like to connect with me where I guarantee I will post reviews, just add me as a friend on Goodreads.

So that's all, folks! It's been a fun and amazing journey, and I thank you all for listening to my thoughts about books. I hope we all can keep in touch elsewhere :)

BBP Online Convention

Hello fellow bloggers and readers.  I thought I'd let everyone know about a special one day discussion event that's occurring Saturday November 6th.

Details below:

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

This November we are having a day of discussions for bloggers: vlogging, new publishers, good manners, Blogger Legal No-No's.  It is an offshoot of the Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference that will be taking place Next March 2011.  
Vlogging - Is it the way of the future?  If so I need to go on a diet.

New Publishers - They are everywhere!  Who do you give a chance and even if you want to where can you find them?

Good Manners - What are they and why are they important in Blogging? 
PS. This means not naming your blog after one that already exists, not copying posts, and not just commenting to have your link somewhere.

Legal Issues for bloggers - Covers, Music, Random Images--which are no-no's?

If you have questions you can email me,Terry Kate at: romanceinthebackseat(@)gmail(.)com

Register at http://bbpcon.blogspot.com/

Thanks you for your time and consideration,
Terry Kate

I hope a lot of you will be able to make this event, whether you're currently a blogger, are entertaining the idea of becoming a blogger, or if you're a reader who would like to express your pet peeves about the blogs you read. It should be a highly educational experience for all :)

Plus, I think the Good Manners category -- specifically commenting just to get your links out there -- is something extremely important to discuss.
