A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to start your very own book blog?
I started blogging a few years ago at Annette's Hobby Spot. I started that because a friend had a cooking blog, and it looked like fun. So I blogged about cooking, sewing, camping, and of course reading. (I apologize for those old reviews, if you go back and look at any of them.)
After almost a year, I found some great book blogs, and decided I wanted to do more in-depth reviews and really concentrate on books. Writing about books is fun, and it also helps me analyze and internalize what I read. I really started this blog for ME. To keep track of what I read and get more out of each book. So Annette's Book Spot was born. And, unfortunately, I rarely post to my original blog any more, even though I still cook, sew, and camp. I just don't take the time to record much of it.
I've met my goal. I feel I'm getting a lot more out of books from writing about them and from reading other's thoughts. I had no idea other people would want to read what I have to say. That's been a delightful bonus! The highlight of my day, besides reading a book, is reading my feeds from all your wonderful blogs. I've been doing this almost two years -- and I've not experienced any blogger burn out *knocks on wood.*
Thank you all for making this such a fun thing to do. Thanks for visiting; I hope you'll come back soon. Have a great weekend.
