Reflections on BBAW and Goals for the Future!

It's the last day of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, and it has been a lot of fun participating! I've discovered that there are a LOT of book review blogs out there, and all are unique and fun in their own ways - but most importantly - all of them promote the love of reading!!!

Today's assignment is to talk about what I like about my own blog, and where I would like to see it in the future!

What I Like -

I love sharing with others the books that I find interesting to read. That has always been my main passion in book reviewing. I grew up reading, have taught my sons to love reading, and hopefully share my love of books with others in a way that is clear and concise and interesting!

Where I Want My Blog To Go -

I keep twiddling and fiddling with my layouts and such, so that I can make the page interesting and entertaining! But mainly, I just want to keep bringing good reviews of great books!

What Is Your Opinion? -

I would love to hear back from those who read my work as to what they think of the blog, and what they would do to improve it! Any suggestions????

It was an honor to participate in this year's BBAW, and an honor to have been nominated for several awards! On to bigger and better books and blogs!!

I agree that BBAW has been an eye-opening and fun experience. And I love tinkering with my blog too ... I think it is fun trying to get it to look like "me" or my vision!

I love all the different graphics you manage to include - I have a real problem with live links and graphics, something I must improve on

Sharon congratulations on such an awesome week! I loved following your progress and learning more about you!

Hi, Sharon, thought I'd pop in and share my thoughts about book blogging, too. You know, there are tons of blogs out there, and I a person could spend hours on end blog hopping; but truth be told, there are only a few that I return to regularly (meaning daily basis), and yours is one of them. Why? It's informative, welcoming, and user-friendly. I want to learn about books - I don't need too many contests or memes or games (which are nice, mind you, but not what draws me to a blog). It's book information I'm searching for -- and if I find it, I'll keep coming back for more. Even if I don't get around to reading the books featured on your blog, I've learned about some new books along the way, and that's all good.

Keep up the great work!

Thank you Joanne, that means the world to me.
And thank you Reagan, Petty, Jenners, and Shelia.
You know, I write these things, and wonder if anyone every really reads them. I know I have a count-thingy, but still it's nice to hear the feedback!
I shall endeavor to keep this blog interesting and fun, and always about the books!
