Captain’s Log, Stardate 05.31.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is LIFE INTERRUPTED by Tricia Goyer.
My Monday book giveaway is EVERYTHING’S COMING UP JOSEY by Susan May Warren.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for LIFE INTERRUPTED and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned. is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. is similar. In their own words:

Godsecret is a place to reveal and share all of the secrets about what Christ has done in your life. Godsecret is a challenge to acknowledge God's work, blessings and power in yourself. Godsecret is a gift to God, an alternative and virtual altar. Godsecret is a gallery of testimony art for all of us.

It’s a pretty neat concept. Some of the cards up on the blog are pretty cool.

GodSecret also has a MySpace.

Okay, this is just way cool. This is my website Camy's Loft translated into Chinese.


Blogs: I FINALLY caught up with my blog reading yesterday. I’ve been slacking because of my deadline but now I’m back on track. I’ve discovered that if I give myself about 30 minutes or an hour, I can blaze through those blogs pretty fast. It helps to have Newsgator to collect all the new posts together for me. I know some other friends use Bloglines.

I love reading blogs. Some are informative—they give insight into things like promotion and other writing-business things. Some are my friends, so I read to keep up with their lives. Others are just plain entertaining, like Snarkling Clean with Robyn and Missie.

Some are author blogs. I’ve noticed authors go off in all kinds of directions in terms of their blogs. Some blog for writers (Brandilyn Collins). Some blog for readers (Girls Write Out). Some blog for both (Novel Journey). Some blog on issues or themes (Laura Christianson).

Me? Here at Camy’s Loft, you are guaranteed fluff, a snort or two, and an occasional spiritual thread. What a deal!

Diet: I did exercise today! Not a lot, but at least some. Hopefully I can do more tomorrow. I’m also okay on my calorie intake—chicken and rice, with chocolate cookies and skim milk for dessert. 1500 today. Not bad, but I need to be better tomorrow—more vegetables.


  1. hey I'm exercising too.
    Raising my coffee mug to my lips as I stare glassy eyed into the computer screen...that counts, right?
    But reading your blog in Chinese??
    Way too much effort. Last time I checked, my knowledge of Chinese was...uh....nil.
    But I can do a wicked Bermudian accent.

  2. It's certainly interesting to see your blog in Chinese. I can even get most of the characters. I know I had to set the MS program to receive them. I did that because a friend of mine lives in Hong Kong with her family. Sometimes there are Chinese characters on her pictures or elsewhere. Went to residence for my last year at university to make it easier on my health and made friends with both her, her husband and some other Chinese students staying there. Their son is a neurosurgeon and I'm not quite sure what their daughter's doing. They are now grandparents to Chris, a real cutie.

    So, do you know Chinese or was this a program that just translated it for you.

    I see that you have quite a lot of sites. How do you keep up with all of them? I guess in this case having the Newsgator really is handy.

  3. Gotcha beat today, Camy - I went to Curves again. I usually go 3 times a week, but from now till conference, I'm upping it to 5 times. I want a new slinky dress for the awards banquet!! :o)
