Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) Hi, I'm Bookbuyer. I'm 26 years old. I'm very chatty and active.


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) How is everyone today?

When did you join Instagram? I don't remember you having it before. ^-^


message 5: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 72 comments A couple years ago. 2015, I think.


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) Cool. I need to get into Instagram. Don't know why I haven't yet. :P


message 7: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 72 comments You should! I like taking pictures, so I have a lot of fun with it.

I'm not a big picture taker but I think it will work for my blog and for ARCs. Will try to start that in Jan but might wait till April or May.


message 9: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 72 comments Yes, Instagram is a good place to do reviews and such. I don't blog much anymore, so if I request ARCs in the future I will probably start using my Instagram more for that.

I didn't know you could do anything but post pictures? O.o

I fail as a millennial. lol.


message 11: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 72 comments Hahaha. Yeah, well you have to post a picture with whatever else you post, but lots of bookstagrammers write mini reviews on there. Some of the ones I am connected with now get most of their review copies because they use instagram, not blogs. Though most of them do that as well.

Aly (alyp_01) Hi! I'm Aly, I'm 28. I love to read, but it's been mostly audiobooks lately, since I'm working a lot. I have an instagram if you want to check it out, but I don't post too often. aly_petersen01


message 14: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 72 comments Hi, Aly! A lot of my reading is on audio as well. My commute time is perfect to make it through a book a week, if it's not super long. Sometimes two.

Want me to add a youtube thread for social media? For you book blogging?

I wonder what I could come up with? It would have to be really easy.


message 23: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 32 comments Bookbuyer wrote: "Oooh should I do challenges?"

Maybe some light/open-ended ones. I do enough that have a lot of specifics to find. Or ones that go more than a month if specific. "-

It would be less book related and more goal related so far. I'm already creating ideas. Just haven't decided on which one I might do yet.

I like that this isn't just books. :) But the openness remains since our goals or how we go about them can differ.
Although some of my goals are playful (like playing backlogged video games, finishing shows in my netflix queue, etc) and not serious if I do them.
Then I also have decluttering/organization goals, yard work goals, project/craft/writing etc so depending how or what is done it can be fun.

I think the challenge I've decided on might work then. I'm not sure how it would work but I'm going to try. Especially since the group is still small.


message 27: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) This is what I have so far

A Personal Goals Challenge.

You would post your general goals for a month and I or someone else would give you a challenge?

^^^ This might be more of a 'game' ^^^

Length: Year long/Open ended

That could be interesting. Sort of like a game but a challenge of sorts too and both are good :)

Cool. I'll set it up then. Hope it works out well!


message 31: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 32 comments Maybe even a pair off where you put 2 people (more if others join?) and see who can do can better succeed or make their goal. Like if you create a save money goal whomever saves the most % of what they make that month or for weight loss eating healthy servings (fruits/veggies) gets you a point while a serving of junk food (chips, candy, etc) lose you a point. I don't want to make too competitive since our goals individually can vary but idk..just top of my head brainstorms.

That could be good for the beginning too. As it's easier to keep track off. We'll have to see how many sign up first. :)

I want to do a bit better. Like figure out how to do a vlog style with stops and starts, or better cutting out weird moments. Once my shelves are done I'll also have a better place to record I hope. But overall editing is not my focus. I don't want to spend hours fixing every little thing. I got other things I'd rather do with my time.

I like your videos! ^-^

I also liked the christmas tree in the background. Very festive. ^-^

And thanks :)

Keith | 7 comments Hello, all! I'm Keith. Hoping joining this group will help me with some goals I've set for myself in the coming year. Of course, I'm here to offer support to others as well. I'll try to be fairly active. Life finds a way, but it does a great job of getting in the way at times as well.

Tyler J Gray (wickedjr89) Hi, I'm Stephanie. I'm 29. I'm a book blogger and booktuber. I love to read but also like to game, draw, watch tv/movies. I have set myself quite a list of goals for 2019 and this group seems like a great place to be for that :)


message 42: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis (seattlebookmama) I'm Donna. I'm a retired teacher and blogger in Seattle, Washington. I like to keep a good blend of fiction and nonfiction at the same time, and I put in a fair amount of time reading every day, now that I can. I have a beagle, and two grandsons, the second born this year.

My favorite is Sims 2 but I haven't been able to play because it no longer likes Windows 10 so it's been a really long time. I can play Sims 3 which I also enjoy.

I love the older versions of sims but like you said they don't work on the new operating systems. :(

I still have every version up to sims 4. Miss the older version sometimes but 4 is also pretty awesome. :)

Sims 2 was the best! I am torn between 3 and 4.
