The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
This week was still tiring and a lot of the problems I am working on haven’t improved, but there were some good pieces as well this week, which was nice.
You probably noticed the slightly different look of Lola’s Reviews. I hadn’t planned to work on my theme this week, but suddenly I decided to do so. It took a while to get all the settings and colors how I wanted them, but I am glad it’s done now. I am happy with how the new theme turned out. My old theme didn’t work correctly anymore after the most recent wordpress update, so I had to switch to a new theme. I plan to use the same theme for my Lola’s Blog Tours site, but I am still working on that one as that design it a bit more difficult to get right. I plan to change up my design there a bit to fit the new theme and I did the blog one first I am not quite finished with the tour site one. Hopefully later this month.
As for more good news. I found a new author to work for, we’re still discussing things and starting off with just a bit of work, but I am excited to have found a new author to work for! I also contacted some other authors that I heard were searching for a PA through a Facebook group, but no such luck so far. An author who booked some social media posts might be interested in more regular work, so I keep my fingers crossed for that. And I am running a discount on my social media posts service! I already got some authors interested in that, so I hope that brings in some new work.
As for the other things I’ve been dealing with. Still no improvement on my computer issues, which is a real pain as it interrupts everything when it suddenly stops working. I think I’ve finally figured out what’s causing it and it’s a hardware/ driver issue probably. So updating my drivers is the next step and then hoping it won’t crash while updating and ruin my computer completely. My arm has been doing surprisingly well this week, but I have no clue why so that’s not very helpful. I got a new mouse mat for my birthday which finally arrived this week, as my old one was getting very old, so maybe that’s what helped? My new mouse isn’t here yet as the delivery got delayed and no news yet on when it will arrive.
What did I read this week?
Balanced on the Blade’s Edge was a great fantasy romance read. I liked the main characters and was happy to have tried another series by this author. I’ll definitely be continuing this one. Source Mage was a DNF unfortunately. I just couldn’t get into the story. Cocktails and Murder was a fun cozy mystery read, the mystery didn’t really grip me in this one and some events were a bit over the top/ ridiculous. But it was still a nice read overall and I like the Florida vacation theme/ setting.
