Nature is still in the middle of the winter season, but here on "Seasons of Humility," a new season is coming. OK, maybe it's not that drastic! ;) But I thought I would still let you know about some new changes.

I am now going to be a contributor on The Borrowed Book blog! I don't think that will really affect this blog, but I had to let you know because I'm very excited!!! I'll be over there posting about a life in the day of a hopeful author and college student (with occasional reviews!) on most Mondays, but I'll still be posting the "Mondays for the Military" posts here, as well. *The introduction post goes up on Tuesday, February 1st. * My first post will be going up on Monday, February 7th, so after stopping by here for the first day of the Season of Love Blog Party, I'd love if you'd come and say hello!

Also, as you can see by the slighter shorter "Pages" list, I've deleted the "Sightseeing by the Seasons" page. I won't say that you'll never hear anything more about this feature, because I don't know what the future holds. But for now, I think I have my hands full with "Mondays for the Military," the "Contentment Reading Challenge," blog parties, regular posts, etc. I think I was trying to force a new feature that just wasn't something my heart was completely into. So unless something happens to change my mind, I'm going to just let this feature go.

But don't worry! I haven't forgotten all those who entered the giveaway I had in regards to that feature! I think what I'm going to do is keep all those entries and extend them to one of my upcoming giveaways. For those of you who entered, please let me know whether you think that's fair or not.

And one more thing while I'm on the topic of this blog: what would you like to see more of here? Are you craving more movie reviews? Would you like to have some book discussions like we did last year? Do you want some more themed weeks? Of course, we have the Valentine's Day blog party coming up, as well as my blogoversary in March, but I still want to hear what it is you, as readers, want. Thank you for your suppport!

It's still a bit up in the air, but I think we're going to start off with reviews/interviews, and then maybe off and on I'll post about college life and writing. :)

Thank you for sharing my excitement! I was so thrilled when they asked me to join them! :D

*does the I knew the secret already dance* WOOHOO!!! So excited for you, Tiny!! Now I'm going to have to sign up to follower another blog, sheesh woman!! But I am soooooooo excited for you. You sounded pretty happy about it : )

I forgot your blogaversary is in March, what an awesome month BAHAHAHAH! Joking, joking : P As you know, I love the theme weeks *cough cough Camp Humility cough* Ahahahahahahahaha. What the heck is up with me today!?

I like anything you do, Amber, it's totally cool whatever you decide to do. At least you have an idea of what you're doing on your blog, hun. know what? I was talking to Ashley last night and she was going on about how she didn't know that anyone read her blog or anything so I kinda sorta freaked out on her a little bit. Threw your name in there too as support lol, but I knew you'd only agree. Man, I love that girl, but I wish she saw her greatness.

Anyway, just wanted to come and paaaaartay with you *grabs Amber and pulls her into the center of the room because she's a dancing fool*

Talk soon, chica ; )

Congrats on joining The Borrowed Book as a contributor! I look forward to reading your posts!

Amber S. said...


Hahaha, thanks so much for sharing my excitement, dear! And yes, you did know before any of my other followers, so you should feel special! ;)

March is definitely an awesome month!!! Hmmmm...I can't wait to celebrate with you! :D We'll be the same age for a few months!

So glad you enjoyed Camp Humility--that was super fun! Like I said to you yesterday, I loved the little scenarios you came up with. :) Can't wait for the return of camp-time!

And dear, sweet Ashley--her blog is so much fun! I miss her now that she hasn't been blogging as much. :( If you chat with her again soon, tell her that we love her blog!!!

Anyway, thank you for sharing my happiness!


Amber S. said...


Thank you so much! I appreciate that you would take the time to read my posts there, too! :) It should be fun! I've been talking with the authors who run the blog, and I think they're going to have me write posts about my writing adventure/college life, and occasional reviews. I feel like I'm going to be a columnist. ;)


Project Journal said...

Hehehehe *wrapped up in special* Joking, joking!! I feel honored that you'd want to share with me. I have no clue why you would!

Ha! When's your birthday again? Do I know when it is? But that's awesome! So you're almost twenty *happy dance* Hmmmmm we'll need to plan a party! Sorry, you sound like I should know when you're birthday is and I am wracking my brain for sure....but not coming up with anything. It's like a clean slate up there. People have been telling me all week that I'm forgetting things...

Lol! I loved your posts from Camp Humility! But what scenarios? Lol...I didn't think I did anything! It was alllll you, girlie.

And I sure will tell her. She was supposed to come on tonight...but she still isn't. Hmmmm that stinks, she's one of the bestest, brightest parts of my day if we get to talk!! And you of course ; )

Heh, you will be a columnist of sorts, lovey. No worries, you'll kick butt with all your genius, kindness, and heart of gold.
Love you,

Amber S. said...


Why wouldn't I want to share my excitement with you? You're so encouraging and fun! :D

My birthday is June 3rd, and it will definitely be cool to be the big 2-0! ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed the Camp Humility posts--I loved writing them! It was so fun to make it feel like we actually were at camp together! :D I just thought it was cool how you always made me sound like a drill sergeant... ;)

Ashley is definitely wonderful, and I hope she knows how much we love her! :D

Thank you for your confidence in me! It's fun to think of being a sort of columnist. ;)

Love ya, too!

Congrats, Amber! How exciting for you! I hope they put your picture and bio up in the sidebar. Blessings!

Kav said...

Congratulations, Amber. That's very exciting. You have bio up and everything! I better remember to tune in on Mondays over there, eh?

As to your blog -- I loved your book discussions! And book and movie reviews are some of my favourite blogs to read because I'm always looking for something new and exciting.

Amber S. said...

Renee Ann,

Thank you! I'm definitely excited. :D They just put my picture and bio up this morning, and the official introduction post goes up on Tuesday. :) Wahoo!


Amber S. said...


Thank you! I saw my bio up over there this morning! :) I know ya'll must have so many blogs to read already, but I'm honored that you would want to stop by and read my posts on "The Borrowed Book," too!

I think it would be lots of fun to have another book discussion; I'm so glad you enjoyed the previous ones! I think I'm going to put a poll up in the sidebar... And glad you enjoy the movie reviews and book reviews, as well! Your book reviews are fabulous! :D


Joy Tamsin David said...

Congrats on the new gig, Amber. :)

I think I already follow that one, so I'll see you over there.

Amber S. said...


Thank you! I'm glad that it all worked out so that you found some new partners in crime and I got to be a part of a group blog after all. ;)

I appreciate your support! :)
