I'm afraid I've been terribly unfaithful to LJ. See, I went to search for a book review on here. I knew I'd reviewed it, but I couldn't find my review. In a haze of disloyalty, I imported all of my book reviews from here into my Wordpress blog - it's got a category BR in the right hand column where you can find all my old book reviews in order, and you can use the search box in the right hand column to search for any book title or author and actually find them. The archive goes back to 2005!
I didn't delete them from here, but it just seemed like the right thing to do.
In other news, I've recently posted ...
Be careful! Decimated (there are a fair few comments on here!)
Marinade or marinate? (surprised me!)
Small business chat with Pat who makes gifts
Small business chat update with Tammy the editor
Ten Lessons I Learned When Writing my Book - what happened when I switched to the writer side from the editor side?
Wessex Tales and Hands Up
Frances Partridge and Three Letters from the Andes
Two by Barbara Pym
And I've updated my index of small business interviews to celebrate doing my SEVENTY-FIFTH interview and to make it simpler to navigate.
So, I have been updating word, business and small business posts on here: www.libroediting.com/blog/ and there are lots of new book reviews and book confessions here: www.librofulltime.wordpress.com including a page with info and all the worldwide Amazon links for my new book about being self-employed.
Off to try to just pick one category to import now ...
Wish me luck!

Anyway, let's catch you up on what's been going on in Liz / Libro land ... Oh, but when I go to turn these into links it won't let me, so I hope it works, or you may have to copy and paste - sorry!

Over on the Libro Full Time blog, I've beefed up my "About" page, which now hopefully explains how this blog works a bit better: I want to get across the idea that it's my personal blog, which started off being about going full time but, thanks to going full time, has blossomed into book reviews and posts about the e-book I've written on lowering your cholesterol. I have also migrated my Iris Murdoch project posts over here, as they seem to fit better with the stuff I do in my spare time rather than the business / small business / language fodder of the main Libro blog.
So here's the About page http://librofulltime.wordpress.com/about/
and you will also see that I've added a page about the IM project and one about my e-book, as well as categories for both.
And then a few updates:
