#FF–Why blogging?


To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
    • (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
    • (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
    • Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
    • Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
    • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
    • Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI”
    • If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers
    • If you’re new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

      I started  blogging because when I was looking for new series to read, I would run across blogs. And I thought, hey I can do this. It’ll give me something to do at work. Seriously, my job was so mind numbly boring that it was a diversion from my “day job” and gave my mind something to work on. 
       
      I can also tell you that I am a typical Aries, we never really keep up with things so I am absolutely astonished that I am still blogging almost two years later! Guess I must really like it. =)

  1. lmao I loved that you put Aries sign in there. I'm the same sign and I've surprised myself by keeping up with this since blogging for me was an impulse decision

    Happy Friday!!

    1. Ning! I knew there was a reason I liked you so much! I'm such an impulse person, esp when it comes to shopping and trips. Like today I almost decided to go to Vegas tomorrow. lol

  3. You know I'm not an Aries but I should have been, I have been known to just do and then after awhile get bored but not with this I love it so much.

  8. *Fist bumps in a show of star-sign solidarity* I'm so surprised I've stuck with blogging too, in true Aries form I have all these brilliant, bright and shiny ideas and I actually stick with it enough to get it off the ground, and then it plummets like a dead weight when the next shiny distraction comes along. Thanks for stopping by My FF! :)

  9. I'm a Sagittarius and can never remember my "ways"! But I do love to talk about books and a blog was a great output for me since none of my friends liked the same books as I do!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    I was a featured blogger!!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  10. I myself am a Scorpio. I attack challenges with vigor and then kind of get side tracked... But I'm surprised I've been keeping up with my own blog as well! Book blogging must just be that awesome!

    Great blog. Following back!

  14. Thanks for stopping by - new follower (GFC & Linky).

    I have to admit, I look at blogging as a nice distraction from my day-to-day life in the office, but that's an honest answer I'd rather the boss didn't read. LOL
