More book blogging
08/09/11 at 05:25 PM by Wait_For_It
I mentioned before that I've decided to try book blogging. Well so far it's going pretty well! I've been doing it for about 2 months now and so far I've: had an author contact me to review her book, had another author read and love my review of her book, get over 1,500 page views, and get 12 subscribers. Not too bad for 2 months worth of work.

I'm really loving it so far. It's fun meeting other people who have the same taste in books. If you're a big reader, you should definitely looking to book blogging.

Book blogging
06/14/11 at 08:02 PM by Wait_For_It
I've decided to try my hand at book blogging. Why? If you know me, you know I read. And I read quite a bit. I'm almost done with school (last class ends July 29 and graduate in December) so I'll have free time on my hands. Plus it gives me something I can show future employers to demonstrate that I have internet skillz.

I'm still working out the kinks like what I'll be writing about specifically and how to write reviews.

Feel free to check it out if you're interested. http://thecheapreader.wordpress.com/

Legalfreedownloads.fm

Someone who was a fan of Legalfreemusic decided to create an RSS tool for the blog. Basically you put in your Last.fm user name and it finds music on the blog that you might like based on your Last.fm profile. It's not perfect because not every post has a "for fans of" on the post but for those posts that do have it, it works pretty well.

Try it out! http://legalfreedownloads.fm.invitationsta tion.org/

Hope you find something that you like!

It's been pretty good so far. Didn't do too much because my friends are out of town for the summer. No drinks for me, haha. I'm saving my first drink for when my friend gets back from Spain.

Also Edgar (liar23) gave me a pretty sweet gift:








Hope everyone is doing well!

Legal Free Music

Today is my blog's first anniversary. I'm quite proud of how well we've done this year. We have over 4,000 followers on tumblr, and 80k pageviews. I know it's not much but it has taken a lot of work to get here and we can only go uphill from here!

Hope everyone is doing well!

How's everyone doing?
04/25/10 at 09:31 PM by Wait_For_It
I'm never on here any more but I miss you guys! What's happening in your lives?

Not much going on here on my end. The semester is almost over and I will have a break for the first time in two years from school. We're also going on a real vacation this year! I think I'll be graduating next year, which is super exciting. Hopefully, I'll be able to find a job by then because the job market here really sucks.

Anyone on there? It's kind of boring because there's no one to talk to on there, haha. It looks pretty cool though.

I can't
11/01/09 at 06:02 PM by Wait_For_It
believe it's already November. This year has gone by so fast and drug on at the same time if that's possible. I can't wait until Thanksgiving break so I can eat way too much food and see my family and best friend. I can't wait for this semester to be over so I can start taking classes to prepare me for my future career. And of course I can't wait for winter break because it will be my first real break in almost a year.

Recommendations/Free Music
10/12/09 at 04:14 PM by Wait_For_It
I haven't updated this in a while with my music recommendations so I figured I should do it now.

Hush Hush Commotion's EP In Control This really good and it's free!. RIYL: Limbeck, The Format, Kings of Leon.
Augustana Specifically Can't Love, Can't Hurt
Brigher Shades' EP You Shine So Bright RIYL: Really good pop music. Free as well
Dead Man's Bones I haven't had a chance to buy it yet but I really liked the stream.


Tons of more free music here.

Do you have any music recommendations?

After this semester, I think I'm 15 classes short of graduating! Now I need to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life.

Hate
09/29/09 at 02:41 PM by Wait_For_It
I mentioned in a previous blog that I have a love/hate relationship with my major (and school in general). Well, that relationship is back to hate. School is getting to be so overwhelming, I can barely handle it.
