Blogger Bits: Top Ten of 2011
Tuesday November 29, 2011 at 12:00 am |

I ran across this post at Alexis‘ spot and decided that I wanted to join in and participate. Jessica, Lisa, have joined together with Jamie and Patrica and Rachel to create this end of year event that will include various top ten lists, including top ten books you’ve read in 2011, and the top ten books you’re looking forward to reading in 2012. The top ten topics and dates are as follows:

 

Monday 12/26 – Top 10 Books I’ve read in 2011

Tuesday 12/27 – Top 10 Book Covers of 2011

Wednesday 12/28 – Top 10 Book Boyfriends in 2011

Thursday 12/29 – Top 10 Characters in 2011 (This can be anything you’d like to make it for characters. You can post your favorite Villains, etc. Just be sure that this post is character based.)

Friday 12/30 – Top 10 Books I’m looking forward to in 2012 (Also on this day, we’ll each be adding some kind of a recap of the total number of books read, pages read, etc. This part of the post is optional. Feel free to add any stats you’d like to share with everyone. So, if you’d like to also include some end of year stats, feel free to join us!)

 

How you create your lists are entirely up to you.  The only rule is to post on the topic on the specified date.

For complete rules and all the details of the event, and to add your name to the linky list, please follow this link.

In other news:

Apparently, Google has decided to discontinue the use of GFC for any non-blogger blogs.  To me this is a completely dumb and stupid idea, yeah I said it, but there is nothing I can do about it.  As someone who uses the WordPress platform, and loves it, I will not be moving to blogger and therefore will be using different means for people to follow my blog if they wish.  I will be removing the GFC widget soon and it will be replaced with a Networked Blogs widget and Facebook widget.  You can also use the traditional subscribe button via rss.  I’m sorry for the inconvenience, and hope that you all will decide to add me by one of the methods I listed.

Thanks to Bex from Kindle Fever for the heads up.

    I had no idea about the GFC. I was going to add it to my site this week. Oh Well!!! Good to know. I will be jumping over to Networked Blogs then. Tooo bad Google. Bad move!

  2. Oh, I’m going to sign up for this!

  3. You go girl! Looking forward to it.

    As for GFC. I will miss it but am still trying to figure out where I will place in what comes next.

    Google is sooooo WRONG for pulling that stunt. 🙁

    That definitely sounds fun! And it’s definitely annoying they’re shutting it down. I don’t see how G+ will replace GFC as it is now, since it’s basically just a number and no feed goes through. And like an FB page, lol. But oh well. Luckily we have options and time!

  7. I can’t wait to see your Best of 2011 posts.

    I’m wondering if the loss of GFC is even a big deal. I mean we won’t get to see everyone’s lovely pictures, but you won’t lose all your followers. The updates should still come through in people’s google readers. I know that isn’t what everyone is saying but I asked. Apparently GFC is just a fancy (or not) RSS and the feeds will still be the same.

    I’m not saying that it isn’t inconvenient but I guess I’m immune to it all. With facebook changing everything up on a whim, I figured out that these sites don’t really care about the people using them.
