BBAW Vlog and (temp) Adieu

September 18, 2009 Reading Nook 48

I had so much fun this week during BBAW. I met some new to me bloggers, participated in a few daily activities (record number of weekly posts by me!), and even entered a few giveaways (a few). Today we’re supposed to be talking about goals, and honestly I don’t have very many goals for my blog. Just to enjoy and not let the pressure of blogging get to my head. I’d like a new template that doesn’t take so long to load and a horizontal tab bar, but those will have to wait until I can take the time to figure out how. So until then…enjoy enjoy enjoy.

So, instead of rambling on about goals that I may or may not meet, I’m leaving you with a little minute-long vlog. I have got to be the most awkward person ever, but I didn’t want to take several videos, so awkward is what you get. But I hope genuine is the message that comes across stonger. I cannot fully express my gratitude and appreciation for you and the community. I’m proud to be a part.

I’m leaving today for Europe and will be back Sunday the 27th. Since I got so caught up in BBAW, I don’t have any posts scheduled. But oh well. I’ll catch up when I get back. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and yes, I promise to post pictures as usual.

Much love,

    I honestly can’t think of a better goal than “enjoy”, Trish. The bit with Maggie was brilliant, btw :D And you REALLY don’t sound awkward…you should see me vlog to see what awkwardness looks like :P

    Have a wonderful, wonderful trip!

  2. Amanda

    Yay for the RAT chant! I’m so happy you chanted for us.

    We love you Trish. One of these days, we’re seriously going to have to bridge that 5-hour gap and meet up! So silly that we haven’t done it yet! :)

    Have a great trip!!!!

    MAGGIE!

    Trish, you are about the cutest person ever. I love you too. Gonna miss you like crazycakes while you’re gone, but jealous of your vacation. Have a great time.

  4. Meghan

    That didn’t seem awkward at all! Very sweet and heartfelt instead. Just too cute when Maggie interrupted though!

    Have a fantastic time in Europe!

    *Jackie – Thank you! Still can’t believe we’re going today!

    *Chris – LOL–I’ll be sure to post some pictures.

    *Nymeth – There were a few times when I was at a loss for words, but I didn’t want to do any retakes–especially with Maggie’s surprise!

    *JoAnn – I couldn’t have planned that even if I tried. Maggie’s so used to jumping up on my desk that I guess it’s fitting.

    *Reviewsbylola – I think enjoying is the most important part of this hobby. If not, then why bother?

    *Paxton – Thank you! It’ll be hell getting back, but I look forward to catching up with evreyone.

    *Amanda – I did the chant just for you! :) And no kidding–5 hours isn’t so bad. Still sad the Texas Book Festival is Halloween weekend.

    *Jodie – We’ll be in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Czech Republic.

    *Lisa – I’ll miss you too–it will be weird being *totally* unconnected. Isn’t Maggie funny? I should have held on to her, but I was just so surprised!

    *Meghan – Maggie definitely shocked me when she jumped up on the desk, but I guess she just wanted to say hi, too. :)

    *Heather – Awww! :) Thank you.

    *Meldoy – My heart was seriously THUMPING in my chest–and I’ve done a few vlogs. But you should try one. Would love to say hi.

    You are soooo cute! Awkward workds for you. :-) And Maggie is a doll, too. She was a star here! You have an awesome time and we’ll be waiting to hear all about it when you get back.

    LOL to your kitty! Have a blast on your trip. It sounds amazing. And yey Readathon! I’ve not participated yet, but I hope to this time!

    Oh goodness, Trish…you’re giving me a funny shaped head, you know. Those ear-to-ear smiles just keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger and they’re stretching my head right out of shape! Do you have any earthly idea how much you’re loved, girl? So very, very, very much by me!!! And I know I’m not the only one!

    Hope you and Scott have an incredible time, Trish!!!!!

    And hi Maggie! Thanks for popping in! :D

    Leaving for Europe?! I am weeping with envy (in a good way). Have a lovely, blessed time, and I wish I could be tucked into your suitcase.

    Awww… how sweet! And the ‘guest appearance’ by Maggie was perfect!

    Even though I know you’re already gone, I’ll say have a wonderful, relaxing, trouble free trip!

    What a great vlog Trish..it was so heartfelt and honest! You’re cat Maggie had to say hi also! Have a fabulous time on your trip to Europe. Looking forward to hearing about it and where you visited!

    Cute Vlog.. cute cat.. jealous you are being a world traveler again.
    And then I wanted to say your Blog and your background does not take long for me to load at all, I’ve never noticed any issues with it all. I know blogs that I have to sit there and wait a full minute before I try to scroll anywhere, otherwise it will lock up.
    But your entire blog loads fine for me.
    Just didn’t want you to think that was a problem for all of us!

    wooops.. Maggie surprised me too :D

    God you look so cute with your new hair-do :) :)

    remember seeing you with the old one at the last read-a-thon… God! it is an year already :))

    Ohh Trish.. that was a great Vblog.. i love that… i appreciate your blog too… love coming here! hope you have a great time in Europe :)

    take care!

    *Everyone – Thank you so much for coming by and commenting–great to see some new names among the old names (the great thing about BBAW!).

    Also, Maggie says “Meeeeeeeeow.” Although that wasn’t planned (do you think I can fake that surprise!!), I wonder if I can get her to make another appearance during Read-a-thon.

  21. Thoughts of Joy

    What a great vlog! You are just too cute, Trish. :)

    I know you are looking forward to the Read-A-Thon and I hope you get lots and lots of reading accomplished.

    Loved the peek-a-boo by Maggie!
