Armchair BEA: How do you blog anyway?

So how do you blog anyway?

When I first started blogging I totally thought it was some sort of formula. Book reviews on this day, special posts on this day and that day, and make it the same EVERY WEEK. Well I've definitely realized that isn't how it has to be. Sure I've got some posts that happen on the same day each week but sometimes I'll switch it up. And that's okay. Blogging isn't some sort of pass or fail. You do it your way and that's the best way that works for you. Like I post about random cute things I find once a week. It has nothing to do with books, and some people might not like it, but I do and that's what matters. As long as YOU are enjoying writing your blog then you are succeeding! :)

What about that social networking?

At first I swore of Twitter. I thought it was the dumbest thing ever. Then I read one blogger say that Twitter was the single best way for her to interact with other bloggers and authors. And so I caved and I got one. Now I tweet all the time. :P Funny how things change right? I agree that its a nice way to interact with people and get conversations flowing. Its a lot more personal than commenting on a blog because people can easily write back! I also have a Facebook fan page for my blog. Its a great way for friends who might not otherwise read my blog to get connected!

I love blogging. Its fun, and a great way for me to share my passion for books with others! I don't think there's a "right way" to do it. Everyone is different and that's what makes blogs so fun!
