It’s Follow Friday! Hosted by the always amazing Parajunkee’s View, this is a chance to meet new blogger friends and grow our networks.
This week’s question is “How did you come up with the name of your blog?”
Do I really need to answer that?
The short answer is that I wanted to stick with my name for simplicity and to build myself as a brand, not just the blog itself. Ta da!
Be sure to check out this week’s featured blogger (and one of my personal favorites) Gone with the Words and the rest of the participants.
Hosted by Crazy For Books, this blog hop is all about connecting with our fellow bloggers. Each week we discuss a book-related question and hop around to other blogs to see their answers.
This week’s question is “Do you read only one book at a time, or do you have several going at once?”
I usually read more than one book at a time. I’m almost always reading one or two on my Kindle, and then I have a paperback that sits by my bed. Right now, for instance, I’m breaking up the formal Jane Eyre with the creepy Wicked Lovely on my Kindle, and I’m reading 13 to Life in bed at night. I go through spurts where I’ll focus on one book at a time, but usually I’m too fickle and need to go back and forth between them. The downside is that if I read books that are too similar to one another while I do this, I can confuse the story lines.
