Current Events:

I have been doing some thinking and I've come to the conclusion that I need to take a temporary break from book blogging. NOTE: Any tour stops that I've committed to will be honored. I have decided that I want to combine my love of books, blogging, knitting, movies digital photography and life in general into 1 blog so that I don't feel so overwhelmed. Right now I feel like my book blogging is a job, I already have one of those. My plan is to come back in the near future with a new blog and a new plan.

Friday Blog Hops!

Book Blogger Hop
This week's question is: "What are your feelings on losing followers? Have you ever stopped following a blog?"

I have in the past stopped following blogs.  Generally, I like to follow a variety of blogs and I try to comment on as many of them as possible.  But as of this post I already follow 216 blogs, so it's harder to comment on all of the blogs.

I've got this new mindset with the addition of this blog and my romance review blog that I'm not going to blog for followers.  I've done it in the past with The Bookshelf but I found that it kind of sucks the fun out of blogging if you do it that way.  As for losing followers, I try not to dwell on it too much.  I'm still in the process of getting this blog and Nitty Gritty up and running so I consider them my Works In Progress.

The question for this week is: Who are your favorite authors??

My favorite authors are Jane Austen (you can't go wrong with the classics), Cassandra Clare, and Jackie Morse Kessler to name 3.

Just hopping by from novapsych :)

Good picks for your favorite authors, and I completely agree: blogging is way more fun when you do it for yourself than when you do it for followers.

I'm always a little bummed when I lose followers but make every effort to
turn every lost follower into a learning experience so I can improve my

On the flip side, I only stop following people when they give me a reason to
such as being totally off message or being too controversial in an negative,
over-the-top way.

Happy Book Blogger Hop Friday!
