15 Day Book Blogging Challenge
Hosted and created by Good Books and Good Wine.
This was created to learn about the blogger, fellow bloggers,etc as a community.
Hmm, being still new to blogging I am still experimenting on just about everything. But here are a few tidbits.
- What I do know is that I LOVE introducing new books to others. While I love my well known authors I also love the new Debut Indie authors too. When people see my 'stacking the shelves' a lot of people say. "I've never heard of any of these." I want to run up to these readers with a copy and say "Here! Read it. Take a chance on something new!" Sadly most people don't seem to want that though. They prefer to see yet another review of the same book found on 50 other blogs. So I strive really hard to give a balance of books. In genre, age and popularity!
- I LOVE getting comments and feedback. I thrive on in. Doesn't have to be positive so long as it is constructive. So I take it hard when I read a book, create a review and no one says anything. Boo. When comments get combined with a readers wanting to look into a new book I literally do a little happy dance in my chair. :)
- I spend more time lately on other people blogs, commenting, attempting to create connections than I do on my on blog and reading combined. Being an introvert getting into blogging and making connections seems to be very time consuming.
All my reviews are published on Goodreads usually shortly after I finish a book. Then, later when I am ready to post to by blog, I review and edit it as needed before I share it here.
Ultimately I am still getting my feet wet in the blogging world so things on my blog are constantly changing. Hopefully, for the better?
