Follow Friday 11



Follow My Book Blog Friday is a weekly meme co-hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

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

I was looking on the Internet one day, and I found Good Reads.  I started posting reviews on it, and later started finding book blogs.  I heard about Net Galley and started to review MG and the occasional YA graphic novels.  The more I read book blogs, the more I started to want to have my own.  I already had a Good Reads account, and I just thought it made sense to start my own book blog.

How was your book blog born?

  4. I actually didn't come across goodreads until after I started my blog! I now post reviews there as well, but I am not otherwise active there. I do a lot of blog hopping!

  9. That's so awesome that GoodReads led you to blogging! I was inspired to start my blog because a good friend of mine decided to start one, and I thought it would be great fun, and it has been! Have a great weekend, Amy!

  12. Great answer :) I think it's great that you've been on GR's before you started blogging. you've already had experience with reviewing books and all that. I didn't post my first review til I had my blog up and running. It was hard at first but I eventually go it together and voila!! lol.

    Following you back via GFC :)
