A while ago I mentioned one of my friends who was rather nonplussed on the whole book blogging thing. I said I would follow it up but everything’s gotten a bit mad over the last few weeks and I admit that I forgot. However being up at my mothers some of her friends reminded me as it appears they read my blog on Mum’s recommendation (nice to know she’s proud) but they were mystified why people who didn’t know me would want to read my recommendations on books or on other blogs. Fair enough, good question. I also saw some more bile in the press about blogs recently (though cant find the link) and so thought I would ask a few questions to book bloggers and their readers that might answer some critics people who just wonder and critics alike…
- If you are a book blogger then why do you blog and what drew you to it and what keeps you blogging?
- If you’re a book blog reader (whether you have a blog too or not) what is it that makes you head to book blogs?
- Book blogs or press review pages, which do you prefer and why?
- Have you actually bought or borrowed from the library any books you have seen because of a blog (I don’t just mean mine but if you have do let me know) and was it the perfect read?
Right answer as many of those you can or you want to and lets see what the results show, so let people know to come and comment too! I will have to have a think for my own responses to these and will update with them later!
