Why do YOU visit a blog?

Updated to add: this giveaway is now closed. Winner has been notified.

Today I’ve been thinking about this whole thing of having a blog, and what is the purpose of it…

I started this as a way of getting some thoughts out there. And also as a way of promoting some of my favorite things, and that, in turn, has turned out to be a lot of book talk… lol.

But, I’ve realized that maybe I’ve been trying too hard to come up with stuff that I think people will want to read, rather than just shooting off what is laying on my heart.

I do want readers, because, after all, what is the point in a blog if nobody but myself reads it, right? And yet, I don’t want that to be the focus. So I need to find a balance somehow.

I know that in this day and age, there are so many things that demand our attention, and it is becoming harder and harder to find time for all the things we feel like we need to do, so spending time browsing people’s blogs has become a lower priority, maybe…??

But, I know, for myself, I just love hearing from other people, and finding common interests and likes, especially fellow book lovers. 😉

Now… I’d like to hear from you. What draws you to a blog. And maybe more specifically, why have you been coming here.

Are there certain topics that make a blog more appealing to visit? What is it that just grabs and holds your attention?

Are there things that make it less appealing?

Anyway…this blog is not about seeing how many followers I can attract, which is a good thing…I mean, so far, I’ve had at least some entrants in every giveaway that I’ve offered, but the chances have been reasonably high that if you enter you will win something… 🙂 So stay tuned!

 

Oh…and by the way… (see, now…this is where it pays off to have been paying attention…

I’m offering a BOOK GIVEAWAY here! 🙂  I have an advance reader’s copy of Wait For Me that I am willing to share with one lucky person…Just comment here to win. This giveaway will be open until Monday morning, November 12th, at 8:00.

 

Have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. You have led me to some very wonderful books! I think our reading interests are very alike, so i’m thankful to have you point out some good ones for me.. Thank you! I’ve entered various giveaways of yours and never won and I would sure Loooove this book!!😁

    I’m not a huge, deep- thinking blog reader. I feel like I have enough deep things going on in my life, when I have time to actually while away on line, i’d rather it be light… and short! Lol… that’s just me!

  2. I love book-blogs like yours because of the community aspect. I may not ‘know you’ (and I’m afraid I’m a horrible commentor, so I apologize!), but I always feel close to book bloggers and love seeing the posts they share! And not just book posts – all posts. 🙂
    I don’t need to be entered in the giveaway, because I have a copy, but still wanted to comment. ^.^

    1. Thanks for ‘visiting’ Raechel! 🙂 I’m with you…I feel like I can ‘kinda get to know’ a book blogger…because of the books they like, their thought on those books, and really, anything else they share! Come back soon! 🙂
