Follow Friday - Psalms 90:10 Measures a Man's Life as Seventy Years


It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Mandee @ Compelled by Words and The Bookshelf Review.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: What would you do over if you were to start your blog again from scratch?

I would start seriously blogging earlier than I did. Although I started this blog in 2008, I kind of floundered about for roughly two years before I sat down and decided what I really wanted to do with the blog. If I could go back and do it all over again, I'd have gotten my act together sooner, and begun putting in the hard work that a blog needs to be successful.

  2. I remember that the very first blog I had was ridiculous. There was no direction. Eventually, I deleted it and started a new one.

    If I had to start over again, I would be more determined, I guess. New Follower.

  4. @Emily: It always frightens me a little bit when someone says they are taking advice from me concerning blogging. I mostly just muddle through and make things up as I go along.

  5. @Sydney: I probably could have deleted my blog before I developed my current style to start fresh, but I left all of my fumbling, unfocused posts up there in my archives for everyone to see. If anyone really wants to go back and look at them, I guess they could.

    (However, I recommend not going back to look at the posts on January 1, 2008. That is where I store posts that I link to in other posts).
