If you know me, you know that I love cats.  So, of course, I love cat videos.  And watching cats do funny things brings a smile to my face…and makes me laugh hysterically at times.  I thought I would bring the smiles and laughter to you, my readers/followers, for being so awesome.  Enjoy 🙂 (Don’t be surprised if this becomes a weekly feature…There are a lot of funny cat videos – or just funny videos in general – out there!)  


Will Book Publishing Houses Ever Cease to Exist?

Will Book Publishing Houses Ever Cease to Exist?
23 June, 2015 / 3 Comments

Another random thought popped into my head and since I’m embracing whatever my mind decides to come up with for discussions, I’m going to be talking about another odd one.  I was thinking about whether book publishing houses will ever cease to exist.  I recently talked about the possibility of books not having covers and what would happen if they didn’t.  This spurred some talk about the fact that it could happen some day, due to eBooks becoming more and more popular.  So, what if eBooks some day take over and there are no more print books?  How will this […]

Bookish Stumblings: Home Library Box

I was out for a walk around my neighbourhood the other day and I saw this really great thing.  Then, I was on a bike ride in a different part of my neighbourhood and found another one!  This time I thought to stop and take a picture.  Both of these houses I happened by had a box on their front lawn with books in it.  I guess the point of it is you can take a book, leave a book, or trade books.  Take a look at the one box: It’s funny that I’ve never heard of or seen anything […]

What Makes a Good Blog?

What Makes a Good Blog?
9 June, 2015 / 7 Comments

After discussing what makes a good discussion post, I got to thinking about what it is that makes a good blog – a blog that draws followers and keeps people coming back.  There are many factors involved, I’m sure.  However, even if you do everything right, does it guarantee you will have lots of followers?  What draws others in and causes them to like your blog?? Design I see design as being a big factor when it comes to gaining followers.  I mean, really, it’s the first thing potential readers will see.  Before they even get to reading anything, they […]
