Thank you, Kait, for mentioning the moment of silence.
As for my progress, I have been rather productive the past few days. It took me a while, but I finally realized that Marie Andrews had given me the Appreciated Follower Award. Thank you so very much, Marie! I set about finding the people to award as well as those I wanted to give the Leibster Award that Jamila Jamison had given me the week before. Thank you again, Jamila!
I posted each of the awards and my choices on Saturday. I also posted the History of Profanity; depending on comments and interest, I may continue with that, since I know far too much about it! I also need to figure out how to talk about the really bad words on an open blog—perhaps a warning? If anyone has any ideas, I’d be happy to hear them.
On Thursday, I finally posted my first review, for Rebecca Emin’s New Beginnings. Now that I’ve managed to put one review out there, I should feel comfortable getting a lot more of them out. Also on Thursday, I managed to use the time spent waiting for an X-ray editing my conference paper.
On Saturday, I finally got a new hard drive that works (yay!) in my laptop, so I am digital, baby!
All in all, a good end of the week. Check on the other participants here; your encouragement is what makes this a fantastic community.
