Tuesday Thingers


Today's Question: The LT Home Page feature. How are you liking it? Or not? Do you go here when you log into LT or do you use your profile page more?

My answer: I like the new home page feature. I use it to keep track of the discussion groups I follow, as well as my LT friends and interesting libraries. The only feature I didn't care for was the "hot reviews" section- I don't really read reviews on LT, at least not often enough to warrant keeping the feature.

On another note: After this week I would like to discontinue hosting Tuesday Thingers. I am experiencing blogging burnout and would like to relieve myself of the obligation of hosting the meme. (Some of you may have noticed it's been a while since my last Graphic Novel Monday...) It's been a lot of fun, and it's given my blog some great exposure and introduced me to all of you wonderful bloggers (for which I am grateful) but it's time to pass the torch. Whoever takes it over is free to change the name, change the logo- whatever you want.
UPDATE: We have a new Tuesday Thingers host- but you'll have to tune into Boston Bibliophile one last time next Tuesday to find out who!

I'll post one last question next week.

Although I really enjoy this meme and would hate to see it end, I have too many demands on my time to take it over. :-(

Here's my response to this week's question.

Marie - I think you have done a wonderful job of Thingers and I hope it will continue. I'd love to take it on, but I'm afraid I might not be able to keep up with it! Thanks for all your hard work!

Here's my Thinger!

I've really enjoyed this meme, but I understand how you might want a break to work on other things.

Here is my post.

My total lack of imagination makes me unable to take it over...but golly, I hope that someone does!

So {{sob}} here is my weekly Thinger.

Allison said...

Marie, I'm sorry you're experiencing some burnout. I understand how giving up some obligations will help. Here's my post.

Here's my response for today.

I hope you find someone to take this over ... I've enjoyed participating. Wish I could lead it but I can't take on that level of commitment. Maybe it needs to be coordinated by a team, with rotating responsibility for the topic?

Tuesday Thingers is lots of fun for all of us, but I know it's lots of work for you, Marie. Hope somebody takes it over, but I can't believe anyone could do the job as wonderfully as you have! Many thanks.

And here's my take on this week's topic.

Yvonne said...

I definitely understand how you are feeling, Marie. Sometimes these things can be overwhelming. You've done a wonderful job and I thank you for all you've done.

Here's mine for this week - and it's actually on Tuesday!

Thanks for hosting this! It's been a great idea. I would love to say I could take this over, I just don't know that I'd be able to come up decent questions.

Meghan said...

I'm sorry to see you leave it, Marie, I think you've done a fantastic job. I know I wouldn't be able to host a weekly meme, especially because I'm still burned out on blogging myself, but I do hope someone else can pick it up.

Here's my post this week.

Amy said...

HERE is my post.

I have enjoyed playing along Marie and I thank you for hosting. I totally understand your need to step down.

Library Cat said...

Marie,
You have introduced me to so many things. I hope that we will be able to come up with some way to continue our meme.

Here is my response.

Marie, thank you so much for creating Tuesday Thingers! I've really enjoyed this meme and have gotten to know a lot of great LT folks because of it.

Here is my answer.

I'm sorry you are feeling burned out. :( I did notice Graphic Novel Mondays hadn't been around lately!

And that's nice to see we have a new host! Can't wait to find out who!

I haven't posted this week as I#ve been away from home. I do like the LT Home Page. I do occasionally read reviews on LT but usually fo specific books.

I'm sorry you're experiencing blogging burnout and pleased to see that someone else is taking on Tuesday Thingers. You've done a grand job and I've learnt a lot about LT because of this. Thank you.

Florinda said...

Tuesday Thingers on Friday!

Thanks for all the time you've put into this, Marie. I've learned so much about using LT because of it!
