Sunday Delight: High #Fiverr

Happy Sunday Funday everyone!
This week was a big off for me.  My biggest stress was trying to get Mocha Girls Read website up and running again.  Let me tell you this amazing tale real quick.  For weeks the site was a total complete mess.  The image library was missing. Widgets were not working.  The format of the About page was for mobile devises not the website.  NOTHING! was working and I was a bit stressed.  Long story short I asked my cousin to ask the IT person at her job.  He was not sure what was going on.  Then I remembered Dionne of D'Lashes told me about this site Fiverr for looking for post contributors.
   I looked on the site and there was a Wordpress section.  I found the highest recommended person and with the experience I was looking for.  I contacted Takrim at 7am and by 10am everything was up and running perfectly.  OH MY GOD!  Fiverr and Takrim saved my life!  Now if I can get Fiverr to fix my weight like that.  LOL!  
So now that I am happy with the book club site, I'm back to this one.  Trying to play catch up now.  So I have lots to tell you below.

Favorite Book Blogging Events and Links

Here are a few things I ran across this week from other book bloggers and just around the blogiverse.  Click on the buttons to check out the events as well.
Anna @Herding Cats and Burning Soup does a weekly discussion post called A Word from the Herd.  The topic of Blogger Insecurities & whatnot. was really interesting.  I for one think that big time book bloggers have it all together.

Estella's Revenge posted The Slippery Slope of Diversity Tracking. I totally understand the issue but I think if you are looking to up your Diversity points then it should really matter. Just try to pick another book that you can tell is by a POC.  If I can't tell an authors race then I just don't count it.

Tanya @Girlxoxo posted this link to Diverse Fantasy books.  Just wanted to share it with you guys as well.  Check it out.

Book Riot posted a Reading Diversely FAQ: pt 1 and Amanda said it best when she wrote her answer to the question:  Isn’t Paying Attention to the Race of an Author Racist?
Pretending that a person’s color isn’t important negates that person’s experience, which is a crushing feeling. When you look at someone and say, “I don’t see your color,” you’re saying that this part of my identity that has been very important to my life- both in positive and negative ways- simply isn’t relevant. But you don’t get to make that decision. Color-blindness is erasure of a person’s humanity, even if it comes from a well-meaning place.
This is a post in a series that I think everyone should read.  Reading Diversely FAQ: pt. 2
and here is the latest post Reading Diversely FAQ: pt 3.

Here is a wonderful Booktube about Reading Diversely by S. Krishna (click her name to go the blog post)
