Book Giveaways and Contests ... new site, part #2

Wow! It's been quite an adventurous 24 hours launching Up For Grabs. As with any new venture things don't always go as planned especially when one has a lot of enthusiasm for the project and 2 hours of sleep between actually getting the site together and posting some of the first giveaways and contests. I headed to bed about 1am, tossed and turned until 2am running ideas around in circles. Bagging any notion of sleep I headed downstairs to fire up the trusty laptop, logged on and launched Up For Grabs. By 4am I was sure getting some shut eye wouldn't be an issue. Little did I know! I spent some very non-productive time tossing and turning until 5am thinking about the all the little details I hadn't covered. Finally blessed sleep arrived but not to last. Up at 7am working on those pesky details. Now mind you I have severe sleep apnea and need at least a solid 9 hours. I got exactly 2 hours and here I am again home from work at 1130pm Thursday night blogging away until the wee hours of Friday morning. Yikes it's 1am again only this time it's Friday. It seems I'm destined not to get any sleep tonight either.

For those of you aren't familiar with Up For Grabs here's the back story:

Up For Grabs is a site dedicated to listing book giveaways and contests for the independent, non commercial, non income generating blogger. We created this site as a place for readers to share their passion for reading and books with other like minded individuals. It actually started as an offshoot of the Librarything Early Reviewers group BooksANDBlog web ring.

Please feel free to pop on over and check it out. Let us know what you think. Maybe you'll find a giveaway or contest to enter, maybe you have one to post or, best of all, maybe you'll be inspired to do a giveaway or contest of your own.

And there you have it. It is was it is.
