Armchair BEA. Go sign up if you haven't. I wish I could be at BEA, but this is the next best thing!
Today, the first day, we are to get to know each other a little better, so here's some of my answers to the interview questions:
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Howlong have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
I've been blogging almost two years about books. I have another blog I started a year before that where I blogged about books and other things, so maybe you could say almost three years. I'm a high school librarian and love to read YA. I also read some adult books, but mostly ones that I think teens might be interested in. I just wanted a way to talk about books, to become more critical of what I read, and to hear about the latest and greatest books coming out. Blogging has done all that and more for me. I just LOVE IT! Can't stand a day without my blog....
Whatare you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so farin 2012?
Well, you can check my side bar to see what I'm currently reading. I think it will probably be Lies Beneath by the time this posts....
My favorite book has probably been The Immortal Rules. I'm so happy about that because I really didn't like The Iron Fey series very much.
Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone readingyour blog may not know about you.
I love to cook and sew. We go camping a lot over the summer in our Fifth Wheel RV. Oh, and while BEA is going on, I'm on vacation! But I plan to have lots of time to visit all of you and comment!
What is your favorite feature on your blog (i.e. author interviews,memes, something specific to your blog)?
I feel I'm in the minority here, but I love book reviews. I love to write them and read them. I usually skim over other kinds of posts and just concentrate on the book reviews. I also like In My Mailbox, or Stacking the Shelves, or those kinds of memes because I love finding out about new books!
I'm also hosting a fun challenge: Books You Can Read In a Day! There's a link in the sidebar, if you are interested.
Where do you see your blog in five years?
Honestly? I hope it's much the same. I concentrate on book reviews. Lots of new books, but I have a huge TBR of older releases too. I review every book I read. Sure, I'd take some more followers, but that's not what it's about for me.
I know I need some design help. I just haven't found the time to concentrate on finding someone to help me with this. Maybe over the summer, since I'm off work I can concentrate on that. But summer seems to go so fast and I have so many other projects, I'm not making any guarantees.
I haven't had any problems with the Blogger platform *knocks on wood* but I suppose a jump to Wordpress is always a possibility. And getting my own domain....
So many possibilities, but who knows?
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me your link, so I can visit. I'm looking forward to spending the week with you!
