Musing Mondays August 6, 2012

This week’s musing, courtesy of, asks:  

What attracts you to a book blog? What puts you off in a book blog? Do you share personal stuff on your book blog?

What attracts me: Reviews of books that I like to read.  That means book in the romance, fantasy, science fiction, and mystery category.  When I find those blogs I become a follower.  

What puts me off;  blogs that are so busy with background that I have trouble reading the posts and sometimes even finding the post. 

Do I share personal stuff:  Not that much.  I do put some personal information in the about me part of the blog but only share anything on a day by day basis if it impacts my publication schedule and then only general comments.


  1. I agree, I hate crazy backgrounds!

  2. Oh yes! Blogs with neon background or a thousand widgets that make your browser crash definitely put me off. :)

  3. I do like a calm, untidy blog..with good reviews!

  4. I need to clean up my blogs, I'm not all that tidy...

  5. Ha, I've had that happen sometimes where I just can't find the post. As much as I've tried it just didn't exist to me lol. here's my Musing

  6. Blogs that are so full of STUFF that I can't easily navigate are blogs I don't enjoy....


  7. I think I'm pretty tidy on my blog, but it's not a book-focused blog. I talk about books, but I ramble about everything else, too.

  8. I don't mind a background that pops, but I do however dislike clutter, especially when the clutter makes it slow to load. I've been working on mine to clean it up some so it looks more appealing.

  9. I agree that too busy of a background on the blog makes me short on patience. and it definitely is easy to become a follower of the blogs that promote a genre that you like.
    thanks for stopping by!


  10. Hi! Thanks for the visit to my blog!

    "...blogs that are so busy with background that I have trouble reading the posts and sometimes even finding the post."

    You've said it! I hate those too. I don't like anything that makes my eyes hurt.

  11. Yup - busy backgrounds - and a too busy blog are a bit of a turn off for me too. I don't mind some personal content but lots of books of course.


I am a reward free zone but I love comments. If you like my post enough to comment consider becoming a follower. Comment Moderation is on so I do not have to use word verification to keep spam out.
