I just started it today. Check it out!
i post several times per week & it's new so i'm still working out the kinks. reviews of fiction, graphic novels and manga. :-)
I've had it up for a while now, but only recently decided to devote it mostly to books and reading. But for the moment it has other stuff, too.
In the Shadow of Mt. TBR
I do the Tuesday Thingers, Booking Through Thursday, and The Sunday Salon, as well as post my book reviews.
I'm determined to post at least 5 book reviews a week!
My book blog is at: http://www.booklorn.com/
I'm still working the kinks out of the template. I'm teaching myself how to make a Wordpress template because I can't find anything I like, but my homemade template isn't ready to use yet.
I just started mine not too long ago. Check it out sometime, if you have a chance.
For book reviews:
I'll only be posting 1 review every 10 days. I'm not looking for work.
For book related, humorous stories:
I'm looking for anyone who would like to join in on this one. Drop by and check-out the second comment. It's from me and explans exactly what I would like to do. If you're interested let me know!
No money involved, just fun!
If I could convert to a three-column format AND keep all my widgets, I'd be a happy bunny! LOL
Stop in and say hi!
The book will be chosen at random from my personal library. Just drop a comment to enter!
At The Eighth Art
Oh please share how you were able to get three columns and keep your widgets! This is something I've been trying to do for some time. I use blogger as well.
TeacherDad's book reviews
It caters only to the romance genre, and blogs are focused on what worked and what didn't. Thus, it has spoilers, but the idea is to only read the ones on books you've already completed.
Always looking for guest bloggers, so if you love romance but you've plenty of pent-up criticism, please consider doing a guest blog!
Visit me anytime! :)
Please visit and subscribe to my blog! I love to find new blogs as well so I will be checking out those listed here as well.
book reviews, a little penguin trivia and an occasional recipe
Stop in, love to have visitors. I'm reasonably new at this so any helpful advice is much appreciated!
As described, it is "A blog of book reviews (and the occasional discussion of literary and other book-related events)."
As I read, I also review. Slightly haphazardly, sometimes wittily, always weird.
It's called Days of Reading after Marcel Prousts essays about his days of reading. I read and review mostly literary fiction.
I just bought my domain name from blogger.
Any suggestions would be appreciated - how did you guys get going?
But I was wondering what people think of the pros and cons of using wordpress over blogger or vice-versa. Which do you use and why? I really like how easy it is to change the look of a wordpress blog, but I've heard blogger is easier to network with.
Then I looked at blogger. Frankly, I don't care for how blogger is built either (getting to the dashboard and other control areas requires non-intuitive navigation). I also don't like that, in the past, blogger has restricted friends of mine from accessing their own blogs - "checking to see if the blog is being used to spam people" was the excuse given just because the blog in question was getting higher traffic than usual. My friends had not done anything wrong, and their access was later restored. That was just Blogger's way of being overly assertive about their ownership of the domain... While this nonsense took place several years ago, I have not forgtten nor forgiven the Blogger team for being so aggressive for no good reason.
So, more time passed. I took a class on creating background graphics for your blog. I created a blog on the Blogger domain specifically for that class, but have essentially done nothing with it after the class ended. Why? Because the dashboard area is too intricate and difficult to work with quickly. It takes lots of time that I don't have to do anything with a blog there. The one nice thing about the dashboard area of Blogger is that from just one dashboard, you could manage multiple blogs if you set them all up under one user name and have need of more than one.
As for networking, yes, that's easily done on Blogger, if you mean "following" someone else's blog. That's all I use my Blogger for - the convenient links to blogs I'm interested in reading.
My book blog remains at http://blogs.delphiforums.com/dragonviews because I have not found anywhere I like better... even though Delphiforums provides only minimal features for the blog and you have to pay for a DelphiPlus membership to get the blog in the first place, and must maintain the DelphiPlus membership to keep the blog... The arrangement works because I'd be DelphiPlus without the blog anyway, so having my blog there isn't an extra expense for me.
i think i've started to get the hang of working with wordpress - you're right, it looks very complicated but once you explore it a bit it becomes pretty easy.
and what you said about blogger - well that's just ridiculous! i'm glad i didn't sign up with them!
WP is probably a superior format, has tons of apps/widgets, but I've seen people like Inkygirl leave because of lack of security. (I forget where she ended up.)
But I (we, as there are 3 regular contributors) like things simple. Plus, Google scans us within minutes... to a few hours.
It's a site for parents looking for great books for their 5 -12 year old (and maybe a little YA thrown in).
Plus I always add what I'm currently reading and the wine that goes best with said book.
There's a specific category for "reluctant readers" and some suggestions to get those little ones reading.
You can also find my tweets @abookmama. It's a daily quote from a random piece of literature.
I review literary fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, science fiction, and some young adult. No romances. Recent reviews include Tongues of Serpents by Naomi Novik, A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, Just a Geek by Wil Wheaton, and The Passage by Justin Cronin. I read and talk about a wide variety of books. I also talk a lot about e-reading -- I love my Kindle!
Hope you'll visit.
Mostly mysteries, thrillers, paranormal and book award winners.
Please check it out.
We review books and offer writer/author assistance. We also cover current trends and topics in the world of book publishing.
For the love of books!
My book blog is called Moonshine and Rosefire at http://irishstarlily.blogspot.com. I'm still a relatively new blogger, even though I started actively keeping track of what I read in 2009. I update my blog frequently so come visit me sometime! :)
I follow everyone back! :)
I'll start going through this thread and looking at people's blogs soon. :)
I'm an eclectic reader, but lately have gone on a bit of young adult genre binge. ;)
http://ContemplationsofMoiBibliomaniac.blogspot.com is where I've recently started posting my book reviews.
I have five other book-related blogs:
