I skipped the Weekly Rewind last week because I wanted to do some extra reading and catch up on reviews and other posts. I’d like to get a little ahead instead of scheduling everything on the Sunday before it posts, but it doesn’t seem to be working out that way for me right now. I need a week off to get caught up on everything, including some projects offline.
Anyway, here’s what’s been happening with me: My husband and I celebrated our anniversary on October 12. I had to work that weekend so we didn’t do much, but we have plans for next weekend. The Cardinals are going to the World Series, so we have that to look forward to as well. They’re playing Boston for a rematch of the 2004 Series. I hope it ends better for us than that one.

Stormy talks about how to ensure she won’t comment on your Blogger blog. Hint: Turn on the Name/URL option and you’re likely to get more comments. It’s the option that allows anonymous comments, though, so you might get more spam too. As I commented on her post, I now love that option but I didn’t even know Name/URL existed when I was on Blogger. I switched to using Disqus commenting pretty quickly though.
Anya gives tips and tricks for making memes interesting. Everyone says it’s best to have original content for your blog, but I actually consider many memes original content. Sure, you’re answering the same question(s) as a couple hundred other people, but everyone has a different take on things. As long as you don’t just slap a book cover up, if you talk about the book and why it meant something to you or you’re looking forward to it, you’ve made it original. It also gives something for others to comment on instead of just saying, “Great post, here’s my link!” I have to admit, I’m pretty lazy when it comes to Waiting on Wednesday posts, but I do want to improve in that area. I think I usually do a better job on other memes, unless I’m in a rush.
