The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
Last week on The Bawdy Book Blog
I was in Kansas City attending Romantic Times Booklovers Convention from May 1st through May 5th, so I literally left the blog to its own devices for about 2 weeks. The week I was gone was prepped, but I was so tired after I came back, I needed a break, and time to go through my luggage, unpack and get back into the swing of things. Oh, and sleep. So here’s the last two weeks on the blog:
- #RT13 Wrapup #RTGator Style!
- Indie Author Excerpts: Tower of Obsidian by L.T. Getty
- Double Click by Lisa Becker
- Indie Author Excerpts + Giveaway: The Best Man by Ana Blaze
- BRB, Ran Off to RT!
- Clean Sweep ARC Challenge post
- Teaser Tuesday: Rise of the Magi
- Giveaway: GLOW by Jessica Maria Tuccelli
Coming up this week?
- Not a damn clue.
May is going to be a light month; not only did I go to RT, but I have a vacation coming up (week at the beach, lots of reading to get done!) and I decided at the last second to attend BEA with Steph from Cuddlebuggery. That does not leave room for a lot of posts, but that’s okay! It means we will get lots of content for June!

I also received a bunch of books at RT, here’s a picture (only ten of them went with me there for signing), plus all the swag and a random condom I found (that author Diane Alberts swears she talked me into taking LOL):

So. You may have noticed the little announcement at the top notifying of a name and URL change. We are going to be moving away from the Bawdy brand to Nerdhuffing.com in the near future. Some reasons for this: people confuse “bawdy” and “body” verbally, I get a LOT of smut requests (something not in my listed genres, but I get it, Bawdy is in the title, and my Avi is pretty sexy), and the URL is pretty long. There are also a lot of “___ Book Blog” names out there, so it doesn’t stand out as much as it used to.
This is where nerdhuffing comes in. Amanda, my long-time BFF and co-reviewer, had a blogspot called “Nerdhuffing” and the name is cute, awesome and unique. But she’s part of the team now, and I asked if we could use her name instead. She said sure (contingent on sharing my millions with her if Nerdhuffing becomes an international superstar hit blog…hahaha) and there we have it. Nerdhuffing was born.
Since I’m going to BEA at the end of the month and the publishers know us as The Bawdy Book Blog, the change is going to wait until after I get back. And it’s a big change; a lot has to go into it, including redirects, importing posts and comments, requesting facebook to change the fanpage URL and name, as well as begging you guys to resubscribe via email. I’ll be bribing with a lot of giveaways this summer *wink wink, nudge nudge* (some are even signed!)
