I’ve had several inquires whether I still blog or not. Over the years I’ve started, I’ve stopped. For all the steps forward I’ve taken just as many back. I’ve set up and abandoned different blogs because nothing ‘felt’ quite right. I’ve read I don’t know how many times from blogging authorities that people blog because they want to be noticed, have lots of visitors, get attention and they want free books (if you book blog). I bought into those notions for a long time. And because I bought into those notions blogging was a chore. If one didn’t want all that what was the purpose for blogging? But it didn’t fit my personality. Talk about trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Blogging is putting yourself out there and I’m by no means a self-promoter. I read a lot. I most likely read so much so that I can hide behind my books. I love books, I love reading. And if in some small way I can share that love with others great. I’ve come to realize that it’s OK if no one notices my blog. I blog for me. I blog because I’m a visual person. I love to look back over the year and see where my reading adventures have taken me. New authors I’ve discovered. New series I’ve been introduced to. And I’m a cover art snob. I love looking at the great covers that have graced the books I’ve read the past year.
I don’t blog at Mailbox Monday. It serves its own purpose. I don’t blog at The Printed Page or Sleepless in Meridian. For those of you who have asked or are curious I blog at To Be Continued. I’ve always wanted a blog dedicated mainly to series. If you stop by great, if you follow that’s fine too. If you comment I’ll answer. What I won’t do is feel obligated to play by the blogging authorities notions of why a person blogs.
