So head on over to RtB to read all about my Four Easy Steps To Reader Blogging. I know, everyone is always talking about Author Blogs and what authors "should" and "should not" do. I thought it might be fun to address reader blogs, mostly because I think too many readers "over think" the whole affair. Seriously, y'all. I just jumped in head first, and almost six years later I'm still going strong. No need to make it scary and complicated.
Anywho, on with the meme:
1) Add the logo of the award to your blog - Ok, done.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you - Yeah, yeah....
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs - See below
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog - See below
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs! - Um, probably won't do this part.
Lots of my favorite blogs have already been tagged, so some of these are undoubtedly duplicates. I did try to stay away from blogs that have been tagged oodles already ::cough, KristieJ, cough::
Avid Book Reader - Besides the whole TBR Day Challenge (which I didn't sign up for because I be lazy), I mainly love Keishon's blog because she reviews suspense on a fairly regular basis. Since I read both romance and mystery, I really appreciate this!
Jennie's B(ook)log - Her blogging is sporadic right now because she's in library school (yipee!), but I love everything about her blog. The look, the feel, the fact that she's a sucker for the classics like Mary Stewart and L.M. Montgomery....
Adventures in Katidom - I didn't discover MaryKate until she started commenting on my blog (see, you need to get out there!). I like her book reviews and love, love, love the fact that she's a football girl! (Translation for non-US types: I'm talking American football here)
Living In The House of Testosterone - Lori blogs a couple of other places, but this might be my favorite place to visit her now (even though this blog is still really new). I get such a kick out of reading about her life surrounded by
Romance Rookie - Jill D. probably has been nominated oodles already but I don't care. I love, love, love the way she writes reviews. At the end of each one? She posts links to other reviews around Blogland! Seriously, why aren't we all doing this?
Nobody Asked Me - OK, so I actually "know" Rosie, but I'm nominating her anyway. I love her monthly reading lists, and finding out what romance books she convinces her husband to read. That guy's a keeper, because I can't get My Man to read much of anything....let alone a romance novel!
Portia Da Costa - I enjoy Portia's books, she's a reformed librarian, and she tends to post pictures of cute guys on her blog. Cute, clothed guys - which is what does it for me. Half-nekkid guys are all well and good - but I tend to prefer the nekkid-ity live and in person. You know, where it will actually (in theory anyway) do some good. I know, all I think about is me, me, me.
