The new channel on Blissfully Domestic, Inspired Bliss is launching the first of next week! And I am going to be on that cool little bar at the bottom where they put the names of the regular contributors!!!!!!!!!!
That's right, folks, I am going to be a Regular Contributor to an online magazine. It's soooo cool. Honestly, it's the coolest I've ever been in my life-- high school and college were not kind to me.
So what am I doing on my column, you ask? (well, I'm gonna tell ya, even if you didn't ask) I am going to be reviewing books! I love books! I love writing! What could be better than writing about books? Nothing.
I'm tossing around in my head some ideas for how to do cool, new things with the old-as-the-hills idea of The Book Review. For starters, how to choose what to review? I don't know that I want to exclusively read and write about popular, new Christian fiction. Some of you know my views on that. One friend gave me the idea of doing a monthly post about a "Lost Book"-- an old book that has gotten lost by the wayside, but deserves to hauled back off the shelf and re-examined. I also want to do a monthly children/young adult selection. Any other ideas? What do you look for in a book review? What favorite books of yours would you like to see talked about? What authors do you feel deserve a second look? What books do you return to again and again for advice or comfort? Who have you just read and are crazy about?
Comment, email, call and help me get my column off to a roaring start! I need help! I need encouragement! I need readers and lost of exclamation points!!! I need you to post about it on your blog and tell your readers to come help me too!!
Just think, now is your chance to have an impact for good on a brand-new book reviewer. Think of the influence you can have on future generations.
