Well, Jeigh is awesome. (You can check out her super-cool writing blog, WriterBrained, HERE.) On Friday, while I was out of town, she gave me a blogging award. My very first, to be exact. (I know. I'm freaking out a little on the inside too.) This is it:
This award is specifically for blogs who have less than two hundred followers, so we can share the
love and get our networking skills ON! (...says Jeigh)
When I started blogging, it was more to track a goal I had set of reading 100 books in 2010. I thought it would be neat to have something to look back on of what I had accomplished.... and what I thought of all those books! At the end of 2010, after completing my goal, I wasn't quite sure where I wanted to take my "book blog." Did I want to read 100 books again? (Not on purpose!) Did I want to quit blogging about books? (NO!!) So, I did what any sane person would do. Picked up some books and kept on reviewing.
Now, I try to be a purist about this. No funny business-- I read books and then I give honest reviews. I don't always have something nice to say. But I always tell the truth. I don't do interviews (unless asked) or add fluff. 99% of my blog is JUST REVIEWS. That's the way I like it. Sometimes I post about awesome book covers or great book deals, sometimes I get on a soap box and rant. But one thing you can always find on my blog is a good book to read.
Anyway, thank you Jeigh, for thinking of me, and for being such an awesome "follower." I wish I was as cool of a follower as you. ;)
