[Book Blogger Hop] August 4th - 10th


Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, where you answer a question and join a "hop". The purpose is to help bloggers discover and get to know one another. 

For this week's question, Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews asks:
Do you ever go "way back" to when you first started blogging and look at your old review posts? Do you see any differences from then to now?

My answer:
I'm still a bit of a book blog newbie... I've only had this blog for 9 months now. So while I do have many posts, I don't believe I have been blogging long enough to really see a difference in my content or tone. I do have older book reviews on my Goodreads account, but those were mostly reviews with just a few sentences. I only started diving deeper when I started blogging.

I did semi-recently just do a whole blog redesign though. So looking back at my previous design and what I have now is so refreshing! I spent SO much time tweaking my first blog design trying to get it to look exactly how I wanted it to. With the help from a wonderful designer and coder, I finally got it there!


Thanks for reading!
How long have you been blogging?

  1. I've been actively blogging for about 2 years. I guess I should really keep better track of stuff like that huh? I really like your layout and there are a few things on mine I'd like to change/add but never seem to get around to it.

  5. I've been blogging about 2 now and just renewed my domain name and hosting company for another year.
    I am have not got my site to where I want it to be and working slowly toward changing a few things. I find writing really difficult (one of the reasons I started a blog was to help me write) and doing all the background stuff takes time too.
    Your site is looking great Erica!

  6. I've been blogging for 3 years now and I still feel like I don't have enough reviews lol. Also, I don't have a set reviewing style. I only just recently started formatting in some way that is understandable both to myself and my small audience.

    1. Yeah, I don't really have a set format. I try to stick to a general pattern, but my reviews just vary so much from book to book! Thanks for sharing your link!
