Happy Saturday all!
It’s time for Saturday Chaturday, where I talk about updates, blog topics, and anything else I want to bring up, haha! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! Today I will begin by sharing one of my favorite songs/videos from one of my favorite artists. My husband and I will be seeing them in concert tomorrow, and I am so excited! We have seen them twice already (once at Coachella where we also got on tv), and were front row both times.
What is one of your favorite songs?
I follow A LOT of blogs, and I am amazed at the number of beautiful followers I have!
What I have been pondering is:
How do you feel about doing the same memes and weekly posts as everyone else?
How often do you like to see a blogger post (every day, 5 days a week, sporadically, 3 days a week, etc.)?
How often do you like to see promotional book tours, author interviews, non book related posts?
I really enjoy blogging, and right now I post tags on Mondays, book reviews, or book related posts, Tuesdays- Thursdays, and awards on Fridays. the last Saturday of each month will be my Saturday Chaturday post, and I am trying to decide which day, or days, to post my beauty reviews and Nu Skin Distributor business posts.
What are some things that turn you away from a blog?
And if you follow more than 300 bloggers, how do you keep up?
I would love to read your thoughts in the comments!
#ARCAugust and #TheReadingQuestUpdates:
I am pleased to say that I am finished with 4/5 of my intended ARC’s for #ARCAugust! You can find 3 of those reviews here:
As of last Saturday this was my progess for #TheReadingQuest:
So far, since the sign up, I have completed these books from the challenge TBR:
That leaves me with 3 game pieces left on my Knight’s path, and the 4 bonus pieces.
Now, to get in to the EXP. and health Points:
All characters started off with 10 EXP. Each book completed adds an additional 10 EXP. which puts me at 30 EXP for now.
All characters began with 10 HP. Every 10 pages read gives you +1 HP. Between these 2 books, I have read 516 Pages (356 for the Gunslinger Girl ARC and 160 for the No Ordinary Star e-ARC). This means that I have 51 HP. Not a bad start in my opinion!
I am currently working on my 3rd book, and hoping to get through a 4th by the end of the weekend. I am also going to be starting my read along square book with the awesome Coffee Loving Bookaholic, so I am very excited about that!
How are your challenges coming along?
Last Saturday I also talked about a life change I am rather excited about. I have become a distributor for Nu Skin Beauty and Health products. I will be adding a beauty review piece to my blog where I will be reviewing the products I sell, and other beauty products. I would love it if some of you took this journey with me. Here is my website link:
Anyone who places an order within the next week will be entered in to a drawing for a giveaway!
The blog tab will be called Darque Dreamer Does Beauty. I will keep it as a separate tab, so those that only wish to follow the bookish side of my blog can keep doing so! ❤
I you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask! I want this to be a comfortable place where we can talk about beauty, health, and cosmetics. Even if you are not interesting in purchasing anything from my site, I am completely open to all discussion, and look forward to hearing about your favorite health and beauty products!
Until I get this piece up and running, you can find product updates on my Facebook Page.
I am planning a couple giveaways very soon, both here, and my Instagram page. So keep an eye out for those!
What do you like to see in blog and Bookstagram giveaways?
Do you like rafflecopter, or do you like random number generators?
