BBAW: Day Three: What Does Book Blogging Mean To Me

Wednesday: What does book blogging mean to you?


 Hi readers and bloggers!
What a loaded question today... it's like asking what is the meaning of life.... well, let me tackle it best I can.

Book blogging started out as a way I could get books. Yeah, I was financially burdened enough to stoop that low, but I kept my promises and always turned over a review, even if the book stunk. Then as I started blogging more, I started getting comments and meeting other bloggers. We shared a mutual love of books, and some of us even have the same kind of attitude in our writing, so a sense of community started to form. Well, the social butterfly in me went wild! A network of people and we all like the same thing! Unfathomable! This was something I could have never imagined in my wildest dreams.... and yet, 3 years, and 201102 Page Views later, here we are.  Funny how things work out!

So now I admit, I am not just a book blogger anymore, but books will forever be my number one love and main topic on here. I do like lots of other things, so hence the fashion, tv, movie, music, and whatever else I can review on here. I like to put my opinion forth, good or bad, and see how you guys react. Do you agree, do you disagree, do you have a different opinion all together?? All these things help people live, work or play, and isn't that what it should be about?! I don't know... maybe now I'm rambling... but this is what you get for off the cuff. This is the "true grit" of me and my blogging.

  1. aw, I love your honesty! I think the allure of free books is definitely there for everyone. I'm so glad you are still enjoying the blogging, though!

  2. I think you should be true to yourself first and foremost. It sounds like you are doing just that here. :-)

  3. When I first started blogging, I did it to keep track of things that happened in my life. Ya know, sometimes I forget some of the little things and I figured it would be like a diary. Since then, it's taken on a life of it's own, but I love it.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
