Help Needed! Site/Domain Name Change!

Hi friends! So I’ve been talking about this for a while. (Or, thinking about it. I think I first mentioned it in May?) I want to finally bite the bullet and make this a hosted site. Hopefully it’s not something I’ll come to regret.

Here are ones I’m thinking: (And yes I realize they’re totally different.)

So I could do http://www.Limecello.me

Or http://www.ALBTALBS.com

Or http://www.LimecelloReads.com

Or http://www.LittleTartSweet.com

Or http://www.TartSweet.com

I really like ALBTABLS and TartSweet, personally.

What do you think? Obviously I’ll remember my own site’s URL. (Or I should. If I don’t I’m SOL and that’s my own fault.) But what about you?! (Other than you know, you could subscribe, or bookmark, etc – but still.) I like the idea of making this more collaborative and getting input.

Thanks everyone! <3

Also – just thought of this – some bitch is going to go grab those domains and then I’m going to just stab myself in the eye. Ugh.

I want to get this all done before my SMSG 12 drive too – so really soon. (Might as well just rush it to get it done, right?)

Point is: which one do you like best? (Or do you have a great/fitting suggestion that isn’t yet taken? Obviously TartandSweet and Limecello are both already taken. Grrr.)

A *Gasp* Change to GA&AG?

So for our new friends here, GA&AG is the Guest Author & A Giveaway.

It happens the first Tuesday of each month. And only then. As I’ve said – originally I never imagined having so many authors willing (or wanting!) to guest here. And most give things away as well. (Aren’t they all so lovely?)

I do only offer the quirky interviews for the GA&AG … but what should I do to make it more special? To stand out more? I mean, it should be a big deal, right? Considering it’s only once a month, and more, I’m scheduled halfway through 2014. (The third week of June 2014 is the first open spot, actually.)

It’s also one of the few things that goes on the blog calendar. (Yeah, did you know there’s a calendar?)

Thoughts? Ideas? What would you want to see?

Oh and quick sidenote – my newest post is live at Heroes & Heartbreakers, and I’m talking about athlete heroes! Come play with me!

Lastly – a friend is asking – do you read Gena Showalter? Which of her book(s) or series would you recommend to a newbie? Incidentally – if you ever have a question like that, do let me know! I’d love to see if we could get some answers/help.

Thanks so much. <3


Changes! And Swagstuff!

And I totally lost my train of thought. I meant to do this on Saturday. Then Tuesday. And both days time got away from me and now I cannot for the life of me remember what the third thing was.

So, first of all, changes are reviews! They’re going to be happening! I haven’t quite set a schedule yet. (As the “team” hasn’t been finalized. Nor requests. A work in progress, here!)

Secondly… more posts. Different posts! I know some [all] of you were like “more giveaways!” and I agree. Who doesn’t like a good giveaway? Nobody. That’s who. But – this blog was getting a little… :X author heavy, don’t you think? As I’ve said my intention was never to make this a promo blog. So, more reader contributions are in the works. (Which is also why I decided to pursue reviewing more seriously.)

I’m thinking Monday for reviews. I like it. I also plan on [pre?] dating one for February, once I re-read the book so it’s fresher in my memory. We’ll see about frequency.

But! You have a choice for the rest! As you know I’m working on starting a feature on male romance readers. And I’m also going to have a friend do random posts on… make up! [Cuz she refuses to talk about books because she’s a hater like that.] Anyway, said person is Jen B., otherwise known as Jen the Ginger Kid, and we can come up with a different name for her because I know there’s another equally awesome Jen B. who is a frequent visitor here. I like JTGK, personally.

My point is – what day would you like to see additional posts? Any preference at all, say it now or forever hold your peace!

Now! On to Swagbucks! I talk about them every so often. WTF is Swagbucks you ask? It’s a virtual dollar on the web. WordPress also always strips my links and yet I try. I try. The thing is, I’ve made quite a bit of spending money from them. At no cost to myself. You can earn rewards for doing things you normally would online. I’ve written a post about it even, trying to explain the basic ins and outs.

So it’s Swagbucks’s birthday come Monday. They’re doing this whole extravaganza and 130 in SB codes will be up for grabs, which kills me because I won’t be at my computer for prime SB winning time. You can “join the party” by copying and pasting the link I will put in the comments. (Sorry, unhosted wordpress sites don’t allow for affiliate links.) Up for grabs is $1,000! And you might say “but Lime – nobody ever wins those things!” I have. I’ve been really lucky. It definitely wasn’t 1K, but it was enough to make me happy. (A grand would make me really happy.)

If you haven’t signed up – you totally should do so. AND if you do want to sign up – before you complete the process, there’s a “enter swag code” line – contact me. I have a code you can enter to start you off with 140 additional swagbucks. Quick note, 450 SBs gets you a $5 Amazon GC. 625 SB’s gets you a $5 B&N GC. (Yeah I dunno why the disparity, but whatever. If you sign up with the code, you’re 1/3 of the way to a $5 Amazon giftcard!) What’s also cool is… if you want your ‘net usage to be altruistic? You can donate your swagbucks to charity as well! The code is good through February 27th, and worth 110 SB’s. (You normally start out with 30, which is how I got to 140.)

To all of you who have already signed up… I’m sorry. I keep asking the guy to give us codes. So, maybe some day. Or he’ll cut me off. One of the two. Let’s hope for the former.

And that’s all!


A. Reviews to be regularly posted!

B. Girly stuff coming! Let me know what days you’d like to see additional posts!

C. Swagbucks Birthday Bash!

p.s. Thea Harrison had the whim idea yesterday (or the day before?) on twitter to do a feature on men who read romance – you can see it here – so you know – if there are any reading unicorns here lurking about, join her badass bunch!
