BBAW: What I Love About My Blog

Today's challenge in Book Blogger Appreciation Week is the following:

"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!"

I love the fact that I stay true to myself and don't write things for the sake of increasing readership or getting free stuff. I almost fell into that trap a few years ago and it made me want to give up blogging because I just didn't enjoy it anymore.  Now, I have gotten my blog more focused on a few subject areas and I've gotten a lot more disciplined in posting book reviews. I am really enjoying myself and the other bloggers I have been meeting.  My reviews may be short but I think I do a good job in not giving away major plot points or spoilers. I hope that by next year I will be getting more ARCs and sharing even more reviews with my blogger friends!

You do a really nice job on your book reviews, and I admire your dedication to writing them. I also like the short format and "bottom line" feature. I think you could find a paying market for your particular brand of book reviews, should you ever decide to give it a shot.

It's great that you have stuck with your original purpose for wanting to blog, Amy. I enjoy your reviews. One of the aspects I love most about blogging is the diversity out there. Good luck with your goals this year!
