Resurrection Blogfest & Giveaway in November!

This may be the best idea for a blogfest I've stumbled across yet.

Mina Lobo, a follower of mine and a romance writer at Some Dark Romantic, is approaching her first blogaversary! To celebrate, she's hosting the Resurrection Blogfest. You can still sign up until Wednesday, November 7, 2012.

The idea is that during that first year of blogging, it's hard to build your audience. Your favorite posts languish with no comments. People don't really read your blog yet, so your start-up posts with all those brilliant thoughts get neglected. Doomed to a dusty grave in some obscure corner of cyberspace.


The Resurrection Blogfest is an opportunity to resurrect some of your posts from your first year of blogging! A blast from the past, as it were. I'm really excited, myself -- although I will admit, some of the stuff my overenthusiastic first-time-blogger 18-year-old self wrote makes me wince. :P

There's also a contest and a giveaway, judged by Mina and her lovely readers. I promise to find something good for you to vote on. :)

Until then, visit Mina's blog for a full list of rules and a contest entry form. (When you click on the link, it'll ask if you mind proceeding to a site that contains adult content. That's just because she's a romance writer and adult relationships contain sex. Shocker, I know.)

NaNoWriMo and the Resurrection Blogfest -- I'm looking forward to November! Are you?

  2. Laura, thanks SO MUCH for promoting my blogfest on your blog! <3 If I hadn't been Internet deprived since my move, I'd have noticed this sooner, but I'm determined to catch up with everyone ASAP! :-)

No, Pence Would Not Be Worse Than Trump

No, Mike Pence would not be worse than Donald Trump. 

The conversation always goes like this: "something something Trump should be impeached" "BUT IF WE IMPEACHED HIM THEN WE'LL GET PENCE AND HE'D BE SO MUCH WORSE"

No. No, no, no, no, no. Stop it. I need you to stop saying that. 

Here's why:

It's an abuse tactic

This is the same logic abusers employ to keep people from leaving them, reporting them, or taking any action. "But I never hit you." "Sure, baby, I hit you, but only a couple of times. I could have put you in the hospital." "Well, at least she's never raped me, not like such-and-so's wife." "I spent twenty years being psychologically abused and manipulated by my parents, but Joe's parents actually beat him." "I'd like to leave, but I'm afraid that living on my own will be worse."

Over time, this creates a twisted gratitude for the abuser -- instead of outrage over the things the…

A Spoiler-Free Review of Disney's Moana

I got to see a double feature with friends this Saturday: Moana followed by Rogue One. My review of Moana, containing only information you might need to know about the characters or context, is below. A review of Rogue One, which is not going to be so spoiler-free, is forthcoming.

A More or Less Spoiler-Free Review of Moana

Moana is a wonderful movie. Imagination, characters, visuals, and everything combined to create a beautiful world with a great story. 

Moana is the adventurous daughter of a chief on a Pacific island. Though she longs to hop on a boat and explore the vast expanse of ocean all around her, she reluctantly quashes this rebellious spirit in order to learn how to be a good leader. When life starts dying on the island, it turns out that the world needs an adventurer like Moana to save them all. 



No Dead Parents

Disney's rather infamous for the "dead parents as backstory or motivator" trope. It's a powerful move, but one that's been played in many, many D…

Audiobook Review: The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue

I'm behind on these. There's a whole list of wonderful books that I've been meaning to roll out reviews for. Unfortunately, NaNoWriMo got in the way. 

But now it's December and I can get back to what I love writing: snarky reviews. I could have kicked off the next series of Diverse Reads reviews with a nice review. But I'm in a bad mood. Have been since November 8th. Actually, I've been in a bad mood since 2016 started with a slew of celebrity deaths and terrible news. 

So a negative review it is. Spoilers below. I could not give less of a fuck whether or not I spoil this horrible book. Actually, since the whole point of this is to convince you NOT to read it, I'm going to try to spoil as much as I possibly can.

Brace yourself. This is going to be a long one.
