Blog News & Vacation Plans


I've been meaning to tell you guys about my upcoming staycation for a while now, but I've been so busy getting other stuff done, that I totally forgot about it.  Not the vacation part, just telling you guys about it.  This year I am taking the 22nd through the 27th of June off.  Which means no responsibility, no work, no brain power used at all.  I already have some of my activities planned, but we will see what I end up doing.

 Now for what that means for the blog.  I don't take a lot of time off, which I think I need to make more of an effort to do, so when I do, I tend to stay away from the computer.  And as much as I love this blog and love you guys, that most especially means stay off the blog.  I don't want to do anything that even remotely smells like work, and sadly, writing posts smells like work.  Now the blog won't go quiet for those six days though.  I asked some great bloggers to write up a post on anything subject that screams summer to them. So for five days, you will be treated to some interesting posts. 

You may have noticed that I said for 5 days you will be blessed by some great guest posts.  Well what about the 6th day then?  I'm so glad you asked.  I didn't decide to take that day off until after I had already lined up the guest bloggers, so on Wed. I will have my last FFC post for the month.  And speaking of FFC (Favorite Fictional Character) posts, I have invited another 9 of my favorite bloggers to feature their favorite characters during the months of July and August.  I've already received some of them, and I'm really excited for the characters I've seen so far.

So I hope you guys come back over the next week and see what your fellow bloggers are up to.  

Now while I'm gone, I will be thinking of you guys.  I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do yet, but my three year blogoversary is coming up next month.  I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do to celebrate, but I'm sure a giveaway will be in order.  I'm thinking I'm going to include a book or two along with some mementos of my staycation.

Have a great week and I'll see you guys when I get back!

Enjoy your vacation/staycation Ryan whatever you decide to do and don't think about us all too much ... that involves brain power, which should be conserved for fun activities & R&R!

Have a wonderful time on your week off, whatever you end up doing. You deserve the rest. =O)

Mel is talking about those of us who started our blogs around the same time doing a blog hop or something. Would you be game? I haven't emailed her back yet, but it sounds like an interesting idea.

Ryan, I hope you have big fun for your staycation, mine will follow yours the next week and I also plan on having fun on the homefront while dragging hubby around town, he may decide to leave retirement after we're done "relaxing" for the week :)
Of course i'll only be giving up my day job, my job at B&N, RT, LibraryJournal, etc.... will still be in full swing.
Have fun, take lots of pics and share.

Have a great week off! I know we are doing the same, a week off work, but not going anywhere. There is really to much to do at home this year. Hope you enjoy your break!

Have fun! When we go on vacation we usually leave the lap top at home so we can just relax and unplug. Great choice!
