I’m really excited for both these books! Ashley Robertson always rocks my world, and I think The Aftermath is going to be one giant nerdgasm. VIDEO GAMES!!
Review to Goodreads
I’ve finally released my ‘Review to Goodreads’ UBB add-on. This plugin allows you to connect to Goodreads through your blog, then automatically send review to Goodreads. All you have to do is edit a post, fill in the Goodreads URL, type up your review as normal, then check the box to “Send to Goodreads”. Then save your post and it will automatically get published on Goodreads, along with your rating! Snaaaazzy.
Note: Currently the plugin only allows one connection per site. So if you have 3 co-bloggers, you can’t all set up a separate Goodreads connection. You can only have one. I’m hoping to make it compatible with multiple bloggers in the future, but it’s not available yet.
Once Upon a Chapter (client work)
Stephanie was SUCH a delight to work with. That girl is a major sweetheart. I did her blog design and also worked on a bunch of accompanying graphics, including:
Charlotte WordPress Theme (pre-made)
I’ve released my new Charlotte WordPress theme to the public. It’s not available for sale (yet) but you can check it out and, most importantly, play with the settings panel! So if you want to give it a whirl, head over to the Charlotte demo site. You can follow the instructions to login and play with the settings. 🙂
Couch to 5K
Tuesday (week 5, day 1)
I KICKED MAJOR ASS!!! God, it felt so good. If you remember, last week I was feeling discouraged. I really failed on that final Friday workout, so I was nervous about ramping things up this week. Then I didn’t go to the gym on Monday because I wasn’t feeling well. But on Tuesday… HOT DAMN!
The workout was straightforward: 5 minute warm up, 5 minute run, 3 minute walk, 5 minute run, 3 minute walk, 5 minute run, 4 minute cool down. And I was just like:
- BAM I’m running like a pro
- I DON’T EVEN NEED TO STOP!
- I’m so ready to get moving again
- I may be breaking a sweat but I CAN STILL KEEP MOVING!
I felt like some kind of epic ninja warrior. I think my new running playlist really helped a lot. Two songs in particular really helped me keep my ass moving:
Thursday (week 5, day 2)
Today wasn’t a bad day by any means. I got through the workout (two runs, each for 8 minutes) without much difficulty. I think the thing I was missing from Tuesday was that epic runner’s high. I think it was partly because I wasn’t in a great mood to begin with, and then after a while someone got on the treadmill next to me and she was running at 7 but I was only on 5.6. It made me feel bad about myself. 🙁 I know it’s not a competition, but it’s still hard to not compare.
Today (week 5, day 3)
I don’t normally go to the gym on weekends, for fear of it being busy (how stupid is that?). But since I skipped Monday, I should be going to the gym today… hopefully I make it there!
I was interviewed by Freya over at the Freado blog if you want to check it out!
