Blogging is good and bad for my professional development.

Hoo boy! Man, I never realized how much work being in the book blogging community requires. I'm kind of addicted to finding new followers and getting my name out there as a blogger, and it seems to be kind of working. I am up to 9 followers (yippee) and hope to add way more to that list. As a result, I'm kind of networking with other bloggers, especially my friends from GR and The Broke and the Bookish.

It's actually getting to the point where I'm beginning to procrastinate doing homework, and before I know it an hour has flown by. Like for example: I have to finish The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963 in an hour or so (I'm not quite halfway through) and here I am, blogging. Whoops. At least my class is helping me by giving me books to review! I'm coming across a lot of titles I'd never heard of before, or had been meaning to read and never got the time. It's also given me the opportunity to reread a lot of my favorites. (I'm reading A Wrinkle in Time for Tuesday—squee!)

Anyway, I should hit the book again. Off I go, I'll return someday soon.
