Spread the Love 2.0: Week Forty

Posted 16 November, 2014 by April @ The Steadfast Reader in


The end of the second era.

This is officially the 4oth week that I’ve hosted Spread the Love 2.0. I’d like to say 40 consecutive weeks, but there was that one week off… oh well… I never got the perfect attendance record in school either. It has been so much fun and I have “met” and discovered so many new bloggers and blogs. Thank you all for making this party so successful, I couldn’t have done it without you. Either myself of Nishita will announce who had the most clicked on link last week. 
Just as Rebecca at Love at First Book passed the party over to me, I’m pleased to announce (as I did last week) that Nishita from Nishita’s Rants and Raves will be taking over the reins after this week. I’ll be there linking up and hope to see all of you there too! She has a beautiful website and writes engaging and interesting posts. 

Last week the most clicked on link was: 
Michael at Literary Exploration wrote a fantastic post on Catfishing, Negative Reviews, and Fear of Blogging

Posted 9 November, 2014 by April @ The Steadfast Reader in


Hello, hello, hello! As you may know I’m carrying this baby to term and next week will be my last week hosting this fabulous link up, but the good news is that the ever-faithful Nishita from Nishta’s Rants and Raves will be taking it over after that!

Next week I’m going to see Stephen King speak in D.C. and I am so super psyched.

Okay, on to what’s important!

Spread the Love: Week Thirty Seven

Posted 26 October, 2014 by April @ The Steadfast Reader in


Well, I found out on Friday that I passed the Georgia bar which means that soon I will be a licensed attorney in two states, now just forty eight more to go. 🙂

I have a big announcement. As you can see I’ve been hosting this party for thirty seven weeks (straight, except for that one lapse, which couldn’t be avoided), at forty weeks I feel like I’ll have carried this baby to term and I’m offering up to any other blogger that might want it. It would be totally your own thing (after all I took it over from Rebecca at Love at First Book) and you could change anything or everything that you wanted. It was a great way to get to know many new (and new to me) bloggers (especially when I was newer to the community). It can be a bit time consuming but I’d highly recommend it as something for newer bloggers to get involved in the community – and as far as I know it’s the only link-up of its sort out there. Email me if you’re interested!

Spread the Love: Week Thirty Four

Posted 28 September, 2014 by April @ The Steadfast Reader in


How’s our week been readers? In case you haven’t noticed I’m obsessed with this crazy Harry Potter fanfic (link below). It’s like a train wreck that I just can’t look away from. It could be worse, I could be live tweeting it.

My first bloggiversary extravaganza giveaway ended and I’m pleased to announce that Natalie of the Natalie Patalie book/game/DIY blog! She won one of my favorite non-fiction book, William A. Shire’s seminal work on World War II, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich and what I’m sure will be a future favorite, Margaret Atwood’s new short story collection Stone Mattress.
