SheWrites B&W Blogger Ball!

Welcome SheWriters! To my followers that don’t know, I’m participating in a blog hop. It’s SheWrites.com Blogging about Books and Writing Group Ball!
I’ve never done a blog hop before so I don’t exactly know what to put here before aside welcome one and all :) As you can see from my blog roll I’m fairly new to the blogging business but I love it very much already…and it’s addicting!

If it’s tips you’re looking for all I can really say is to stay true to yourself. My blog is an extension of my personality and I think that my followers really appreciate that. I put my own humor into each post and I think, even in the short time I’ve been around, my few loyal friends and followers have come to know my tone (and hopefully like it!). Also I try to make sure I reply to people’s comments on my posts, make them know I’m listening to them when they’re listening to me. It gives a nice personal touch.

So take some time and look around my blog. As you can see, it won’t take long. I have several reviews and also some opinion pieces. I do two weekly memes: Bechdel Test Tuesday and Fantastic Five Friday. Hope you all enjoy!

And I’ll be stopping by your blogs as well :)

Hello fellow SheWriter. I can't believe you've only been blogging for a couple weeks. Thats amazing. I too haven't had my blog for long but your awesome. I liked your review of the book "The Help". It was a wonderfully written story, and she captured each of the three females voice beautifully.
