BBAW Day Five Meme: Love & Goals



Hopefully this week you’ve been visiting a bunch of new book blogs and maybe noticing some things about them you’d like to try yourself.  Or maybe you’ve just had some ideas for improvements to your blog you’d like to put into place or new ideas for content.  But there’s also probably something you really love about your blog, too, something you’re really proud of.  It’s time to show off!  Tell us and this is really important, in 50 words or less what you love best about your blog!  And then in 50 words or less where you want your blog to be by the next BBAW!  Ready?  GO!

Okay, so I may go over 50 words, but that what I do. I'll keep it short.

What I love about my blog - my layout, I love it. I didn't create it (I wish I had the HTML/CSS etc expertise to do something like this) but I love it nonetheless. I also love being able to share my love for reading, books, book nerdiness with others and meet people who have the same love for books and sharing reviews.

Goals for the next year? Hmm, I'd love to have my own domain name. That would be nice. Bigger collection of books. And try to participate more in the community and comment more with others. I haven't been doing that as much as I'd like.

And there you have it, it's over all ready. My reader exploded twice (but only twice) I found some great new blogs and look forward to reading their reviews soon, and still managed to read a book or two . All in all, good week book/book blogging wise. Thanks for a great week all!

  1. I really like your layout also. I wish I had a 3 column one but I don't want to screw up my current format so I deal with the two column's.

  2. It has been a great week. I've added blogs to my reader and books to my list. What a wonderful thing this book blogging community is.

    Oh, I think your blog is beautiful..

  3. I really am not interested in going self hosted at this point. If I get published, I'll have a webpage and then I might go selfhosted for the blog part, but it seems like such a massive headache to shift all the feeds and stuff. Since I already had to manually transfer all my reviews from 5-Squared a few months ago, I'm sort of liking just staying in one place. Maybe I'll feel different next year.

  4. This is my first visit to your blog and I have to say I love the way it looks.

  5. I wouldn;t want to host my own (the thought of attempting HTML/CSS again makes me cringe, BIG headaches there), but having a personalized domain name would be nice - without the blogger part in. I think blogger has an option where you can do that, but costs money.

    Thanks for the compliments on the layout!

  6. You certainly have one of the most elegant layouts I've seen in the blog world. And your profile says Books, writing, coffee....What's not to love?

    Enjoy your reading.

  7. Your layout is great. It is very appealing! Great goal about your own domain name. This is something I am thinking about. And I discovered your blog too!

  8. Hahaha - like your comment that you even managed to read a few books this week! I don't know how you all read and review so often and so well. Keep up the good work!

    I'm interested in going solo off of Blogger some day - but it seems an overwhelming project to take on just yet.

  9. It's fairly easy to get your own domain name through Google...one of the blogger pages explains how. It costs about $10/year though, if I remember correctly.

  10. I really love your layout ... and you're on Blogger! Hard to pull off I think! (I have a serious case of Wordpress envy). I like how the columns on the right fit a lot of stuff but don't seem to busy either. Good job!

  11. softdrink- I didn't think it was hard, but right now need the money to host, and food comes first, when I'm more financially secure, I will get my own domain. Thanks.

    Jenners - thanks!!

  12. I also love your layout - I've been trying to find one that works for me and that I like, but nothing so far seems perfect.
    Anyhow, I've been looking through your blog, and I love it!

    Oh, and I'm glad you like my bookshelves - they are awesome, aren't they?
