What's up Tweeps?! No. 1
Back to the business at hand, "What's up Tweeps?!" The first question that came to mind is: Why do you follow book blogs? I wanted honesty, and I got it from Len of Musings of a Reader Happy (http://maidenveil.blogspot.com/) and Amy of Amy Reads (http://amckiereads.wordpress.com/).
Len: Initially I follow blogs as part of contest entries, but later on I get to discover blogs which interests me and some I think are really fun.
Amy: I read book blogs because I love getting new recommendations and getting a chance to hear what others liked or didn't like about books. I like being able to compare my reading experience to that of others. I also think book bloggers are some of the absolutely nicest people I've met, so there is that too!
Now what about me? I'll be honest some blogs I follow for contest entries. I know it's bad, but who doesn't love a free book? Some I follow because the bloggers are just so funny and insightful. I have to echo Amy on the next reason. I like to compare what other bloggers thought about a particular book. Did they have similar thoughts as me? Did they like it? Why or why not? I've also learned about some books I never knew about. What about the rest of you?
Next month's question: I guess this one is geared toward bloggers, but if you're a writer or you think it applies to you feel free to answer. As a blogger, have you found your writing voice yet? If so how long did it take you? E-mail response to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries are open until Nov. 14.
