Tracy asked me this question too! And I’m so happy to help with this one. ;) I can answer it!! LOL!

And it’s the perfect day for a bit of Maryse’s Blog 101 ’cause it’s MY BLOG’S 10th BIRTHDAY TODAY!! :D !!! Squeee. It started this very day, February 28th 2009. WOWWWW!!!!

She asks:


I came across your blog and it’s been really exciting going through it.

I have a question though, how do I sign up so that I’d be able to join conversations?

YAY!! I’m so glad you’ve joined us, Tracy. Here’s a few ways you can keep up with the blog and hang out with us anytime you want:

1.) You can leave a comment at the end of any blog post here (you’ll see the comment box – there’s even one at the end of this post), and then…

If it’s your first comment, you will be asked to enter your name and email address, and then, I will be notified to make your comment public (so we can all interact with you).

Then any comment you make in the future (on any blogpost), you’ll already be in my system, and you can just comment away. You can even check off an option to be notified of updates on blog post comments that you’ve also commented on, so you can stay in the conversation in real time.

This way, you’ve officially “joined” our blog conversations! :D

2.) You can sign up for my weekly newsletterwhich is a wrap-up of the best posts (reviews, recommendations, our favorite “genre” lists, giveaways – and sometimes even hilarious or exciting comments) of the week.

3.) You can follow me on “Twitter” (not as many conversations there, but I post daily), in case you spend a lot of time tweeting. ;)

4.) You can click on the “Like” button of my Facebook page (we have many fun conversations on there too), and it can help you keep up with the latest book-finds, deals, that I post throughout the day (as readers and I find them). AND also any blog posts that you might have missed. And then right next to the “Like” button you’ll see “Following” (if you click that you can choose “see first” so you don’t miss any activity on my Facebook page).

Happy Anniversary! You have amassed quite a number of followers and provided countless reviews and recommendations. Very impressive…

I just found your site about two weeks ago and am ready to dive in. My question is, do you have one ultimate Number 1 read to get started with? Lets call it your favorite 10-year, 5-star book!

Hi Noah!

My favorite would be a book called “Beautiful Disaster” by Jamie McGuire. That one made me head-over-heels in love!! ;)
