It's The Weekend! Blog Hopping, Reading and Relaxing!

Thank goodness the weekend is here!  The weather is turning pretty here in Texas and I hope to get out to work on my poor neglected gardens some this weekend! 

My husband and I are also going to be going to the Don Williams concert this weekend. His special opening act is a favorite group of ours, Joey + Rory and we are excited to see them!  My husband interviewed them this past week - if you'd like to read the article, here is the link:  http://www.timesrecordnews.com/news/2010/oct/01/joeyrory-success-couple-to-bring-down-home-charm/

Here's a couple of fun memes I participate in over the weekend! 

Java at Never Growing Old sponsor this lively group of ladies!  Check out her blog at http://nevergrowingold.blogspot.com/

Book Blog Hop is a weekly meme sponsored by Crazy For Books (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/)  Today's blogger question is: How do you spread the word about your blog?

Hmmm...good question!  I participate in memes like these two, I put my blog address in the signature of  my emails, I use Networking Blogs and Book Blogs at ning, I have business cards with my blog address that I pass out if someone is interested, I participate in different events such as Bloggiesta, BBAW, and such....there are a lot of ways to get out there and let folks know you have a blog!  I'm interested in seeing what others do!

And finally, I hope to get some reading done too!  Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
Happy Reading Ya'll!

I've never thought of business cards... That's a good idea, especially if you are meeting authors or sending hard copies of a review to the publisher!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I like your layout, too!
