The Weekly Review -- 3/28

First of all, a huge thanks for helping me celebrate my blogiversary. Now that it's over, it's back to business as usual! :)

This week's review is a bit abbreviated...I haven't come across any poetic endorsements or anything, but life goes on, I suppose.

Twitter

Twitter is a funny thing....madly addicting, used for all sorts of different reasons by different sorts of people. Some people still think it's a run-down of every detail of your day. It's not, though, not really. Anyway, here's how it all started.

If you're still not sold on the coolness that is Twitter, check out this article on how Twitter makes you a better writer.

Blogging and Tech

Pro-blogger is having a challenge...31 Days to Improve Your Blog. If you're looking for help in the blog department, check it out!

Alyce from At Home With Books shared a very helpful post on how to get your comments numbered in blogger.

Books

Priscilla of The Evening Reader takes you deeper into Gone With the Wind by sharing a little tour. Kind of makes me want to go back to Atlanta and experience it myself. Also, they built that huge aquarium since I left.

Also Jeff Bezos plans to work in a warehouse!

Jen at Devourer of Books had a great review of The Tory Widow that you are definitely going to want to check out as well.

Have you heard of Wintergirls? Well check out Shelly's review! It caused Jen to request it at the library!

Carrie has some recommendations for you in the mysteries genre, and Wendi has another opportunity for you to win the Kitty Norville books. Speaking of giveaways, Nicole is offering a copy of Fight for Your Life.

Thanks so much Amy! I used the "contact me" form above. I didn't see your email elsewhere so I hope that was the way to go.

I also love Twitter, although I'm not on it as much as I'd like to be - having a 2 year old around the house keeps me busy. :)

Congrats to all your winners Amy!!
