Book Blogger Hop (4)

September 5, 2013

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week features a book or blog related discussion topic. It's a good way to let your readers know a little bit more about your blog.


What got you started as a blogger? Everyone has a story/reason, what's yours?


I started to blog to help keep track of the books that I was going to read that year. I started on New Years Day, I don't do resolutions, so it was a goal. Up until a few years ago, I kept a written list. I couldn't keep it organized and couldn't keep up with my Word file either. So, I started blogging. I was able to write my thoughts down about the book as well as keep track. I started blogging before I knew much about GoodReads.

What's your story?


  1. Hmmm...I could see how blogging could help you keep track. It is a great way to post your thoughts on your reads :)

  3. Goodreads was such a revelation, but I am still terrible at using it! I do feel like I have a much better idea of what I've read but also what other books are out there! Thanks for sharing, hope you have a good weekend!

  4. Blogging about the books one is reading really is a good way to keep track of what you have read and what you would like to read.

  5. Blogging is a good way for me to remember what I thought about books. I keep a list in Google Docs, but sometimes, when I look at it, I don't remember anything about the book....


  6. One, love your blog design.
    Two, we started blogging the same time and for the same reasons.
