Important!

Due to time constraints, I can't answer to emails/comments right away. I'm not ignoring you, I really have very little free time. Just know that I'll answer you. Might take a day or a week, but I will do it.

Also, I am NOT accepting ANY review requests. So please don't send me emails requesting a review from me, because I don't accept them. I also don't accept guest post/interview requests. Thank you for your visit.

Follow Friday #18


Welcome to Follow Friday hosted this week by Parajunkee and Alison!
The main idea behind FF is just to go see a bunch of new blogs you may never have seen before, and follow the ones you like (and they’ll follow you back!) It’s a total win/win, so take a peek around!


This week’s question is:



Confess your blogger sins! Is there anything as a newbie blogger that you’ve done, that as you gained more experience you were like — oops?


Oh, so many. One of them was choosing my blogger alias based on my hair color. Yes, I lack imagination when it comes to names. Then there's NetGalley. Oh, how I love that site. I do. But when I first started blogging I didn't have a compatible ereader and I found it terribly difficult to read on my computer for hours and hours and hours. That and I also requested books like a crazy person. I now know not to overwhelm myself and request fewer books. But I do mistakes even now. Not posting every day, not commenting as much as I should, not socialize as much as I should. Another big mistake was overwhelming myself with reading challenges. Most of them are great and at least half of them helped me discover more authors and new genres than I wouldn't have without them. But I think it's best if I do about 4 "officially" and the others sort of in the background, like an inspiration to the big "what to read now?" question.

What about you? What are your blogger sins?

  1. I actually made a point of NOT doing exactly that, but I still somehow managed to get swamped with book reviews xD

    1. Yep, especially when I'm such a cover obsessed person. I see a pretty cover and *poof* I ask for it.

      Thanks for stopping by and following!

    1. Yes, choosing blog names is difficult. I would choose differently if I had to redo it, but it's too late, like you said :P

  3. I've stayed away from the reading challenges simply because I am a total flibbertigibbet and read whatever seems good at the moment. Netgalley is AMAZING and I love it, but I'm falling behind.

    I would probably change my blog name. I have already from "Quiet Corner" to "Quiet Reading Corner" to just "Reading Corner." The whole tiffyfit thing...well, I had my twitter handle already so I stuck with it. ;)
