Yes, that’s still me —> see new profile picture <— The old one was, well, old.
This week, I’ve joined a wacky blog hop adventure sponsored by Crazy for Books, and if you’re a book blogger visiting you know just what I mean:
So far on the hop, I’ve visited:
Emily’s Reading Room (YA fiction)
Imagination in Focus (MG/YA fiction)
Dawn Hullender’s Southern Musings (YA fiction)
Super Reader Girl’s Book Reviews (YA fiction)
Voracious YAppetite (YA fiction)
Tina Says (YA/MG fiction)
Science Fiction and Fantasy Chat (SF/F)
Librarys Cat Book List (KidLit)
A Blog About Nothing (MG/YA fiction)
Ramblings of a Librarian Assistant (Children’s fiction)
I’m looking forward to checking back in the days/weeks ahead!
As I hopped around, I realized that we all had something in common, beyond the obvious book blogging theme. Although we were teachers and librarians, parents, newlyweds, and younglings, we were all writers. Some of us wear that title openly, crafting novels and other stories, but make no mistake: if you blog 500 words every day for a year, you have written 130,000 words, more than most first novels. The craft of writing a serialized string of non-fiction blog posts is certainly different from crafting fiction, but not as much as you might suppose. Each blog post tells a story, even if it is only the story of one blogger’s experience of reading a book. The sum total of our blog posts weave a picture of a person, or at least one aspect of that blogger’s life.
We are all writers, and I’m glad to join you on our respective writerly paths. 🙂
