Celebrating Bloggers

It is Book Blogger Appreciation Week and I'm participating in the Celebrating Bloggers Hop sponsored by Terri Giuliano Long. Authors and bloggers will be raving about book blogs for the next 4 days. Check out Terri's blog for other participants.

I got involved with book blogging as sort of an experiement/learning excercise. I also had a great book I had read and wanted a wider platform to tell others about it.

I've read blogs and tried to start my own a few times, but they never stuck. I wasn't sure book blogging would either, but I fell in love with the community I met and decided to take the plunge.

Sometimes blogging can feel too much like work, but then I hear from a blogging friend on Twitter or Facebook and I get re-energized.

Without the people I've met (and the readers who continually visit my blog), I probably wouldn't have stuck with it and definitely would not be blogging 7 days a week. I want to thank each of you for YOU are the reason I love book blogging.
