I am trying a couple of things this year that I wanted to tell everyone about! 🙂
First – If you haven’t noticed I have been doing Susanna Hill’s “Perfect Picture Book Friday” (PPBF) and I am going to try to keep doing this feature every friday (did you see the cool badge?). PPBF is picture book recommendations by all sorts of people and it’s published every Friday. There are all sorts of great books that I have never heard of listed. You should check it out HERE.
Second – I entered Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 in 2012 challenge (another cool badge). The challenge is to take your picture book ideas (I did Tara Lazar’s PiBoIdMo in November) and make them into 12 picture books in 2012. I don’t think I can do 12, but if I can do one or two, I will be happy and I think I will learn a lot from doing it. There’s still time to sign up for 12×12 in 2012! You can see how HERE.
Third – I am going to try to get other kids to send in creative things to my website. I started it off with my sister’s poem and made a new category (Creative Kids), but I am going to try to spread the word about it and see if anyone knows any kids that would like their poems, stories or artwork published on my site. I’d like to make a logo for it too. So if you know any kids or teachers / home schoolers that would like their kids / student’s work featured -let me know!
Fourth – I am going to make a FAQ page for my blog. I keep thinking I should and don’t so I am making my RESOLUTION to do it! Watch for it 🙂 .
Fifth – I wrote a book last year called “The Adventures of Tomato and Pea” and I am going to try to write a book two for it and make the first book better and I want to self-publish my first book so I can learn about how to do that.
Sixth – …well I can’t tell you this one yet…I hope to tell you this afternoon or maybe tomorrow, but it’s something I am excited about 🙂 🙂 😉 .
