Book Blogger Hop August 24th - August 30th: My Son Is Fourteen Years Old

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books has restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them. A complete explanation of the history and the rules of the Hop can be found here.

This week Jen asks: What is your favorite thing about blogging?

I love writing stuff that might get read by someone. I like writing. I suspect many bloggers who stick with it do as well. Sometimes it is like pulling teeth to sit down and put a review together, but it always turns out to be worth it in the end.

  1. I write my reviews as I am reading...makes it less of a chore when I am done. :)

    I love meeting other bloggers and enjoy the creativity on blogs in the posts and in the design.
    Stop by to read my entire post if you like.

    Happy Friday!!

    Silver's Reviews

  2. I enjoy writing if I feel like I've done it well - I cringe otherwise, though that doesn't necessarily stop me from posting it. I find writing them to be a chore, but one that I feel oddly accomplished about. I read during the week and then right them all on Sundays (perhaps that is why it seems like a chore - because I've made it one).

  3. @Elizabeth: I do most of my reading on the bus or the subway, so reviewing as I read isn't really an option. Also, I usually like to mull a book over for a day or two before writing a review. But I can certainly see how reviewing as you read would streamline the process.

  4. @Rory: I wish I could be organized enough to have a reviewing "day". I usually just review books when I get a chance to sit down and do it, and usually it takes me two or three tries to actually turn out a finished product.
