IN FEBRUARY …
In February, I read 18 books! I think that’s pretty good, considering it’s a short month and the end of it always sneaks up on me, even though I know it’s short. I read almost 8,000 pages, smashing my goal of 6,000 for the February Page Count Contest.
A big portion of the books I read are World of Warcraft books, which has led to me playing again. I’ve played WoW off and on since its release. Until I get sick of it again, expect some random WoW stuff. It’s the only game I’ve ever really loved.
See? I think he’s adorable. Yep. I like me some trolls.
Moving on … March is going to be a very busy month here at leeanna.me. I have lots of blog tour stops scheduled, my first giveaway, and my first interview! I’m still trying to come up with some good questions.

I am not a very fit owl.
Inside the Nest:

Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon. I read 7 books over this readathon.
How am I doing on my Blogging Resolutions?

02: Keep Amazon/Goodreads updated
03: Make 1 vlog a month
04: Post 1 personal update a week
05: Use Facebook
06: Learn about SEO
07: Be more active on Twitter
February wasn’t so hot for goal accomplishing, as you can see. I did post about having some blog/reviewing burnout, so February wasn’t that active of a month for me. Rereading old favorites, such as Harry Potter and World of Warcraft has helped, as has just taking it easy. Blog burnout is totally natural, and I think I’m bouncing back already.
I don’t have specific plans for March, other than working on my goals and trying to keep on a schedule! I keep a calender now, but I don’t always schedule my posts ahead of time. This bit me in the butt in February, as I spent a good portion of the month sick, which didn’t help with blog activity.
I would also like to work on my writing, which has taken a backseat this month because I haven’t been inspired. I hate that I let myself off the hook with writing, because I always have other things to do … and along that line, I need to get some gym time in. I have my first 5k of 2013 coming up in APRIL. Ack. That’s partly why I write about some personal things on this book blog — public accountability! And also because I like blogs that show the personality of the blogger.
