Hop, hop, hop!!

Book Blogger HopEvery week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/) hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different? I don't think so. Originally, I thought about naming my blog, "My life according to books." But then I changed my mind. I think that title would have required me to talk about myself too much. At times, I am very opinionated and vocal. But most of the times I'm very boring. It was just easier to focus on the books and occasionally talk about myself. Then I decided to come up with a different name. I wanted a play on words. I was going to call my blog, "As the Pages turn," but that was already taken. By default I came up with, "As I Turn the Pages." No regrets on that one.
Here are some blogs I came across:

http://hopelovehappyendings.blogspot.com/
http://www.bewitchedbookworms.com/

Notes: Come back on Sunday. I'm posting another In My Mailbox vlog. I had a really good week. Plus, I'm looking for takers for next month's edition of What's Up Tweeps?! Here is the question: With so many blogs out there, do you feel pressure to pick a genre/niche? Ever wonder how you can stand out among the masses? E-mail entries to bookangel224@gmail.com. Entries are open until March 18. Happy reading everyone!

  7. What’s in a name? Everything! A name is a label, a description and a promise. I’m very happy with mine – “Howard Sherman, Implementor” but it was quite a journey to get there.
