Follow Friday

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #109Q: What would you do over if you were to start your blog again from scratch?

A. This is a great question but a really tough one to answer.  Starting a blog is really a learning process.  Not only about what to do but what you like and what you do not like.

I think that if I was going to start my blog again I would have done more research about blogging platforms.  I would have started on WordPress, if I was aware of all of the problems I would have encountered with Blogger along the way.  However, that being said knowing how Blogger works afforded me the opportunity to work with Roxanne at Bewitching Book Tours as her assistant, which I love and have learned so much about the book world!

I would and still should network more.  I am really a pretty reserved person and have a hard time putting myself out there.  I would love to get to know more blogger but just do not seem to have the big personality to just do it.

I also think that I would have thought about my theme and been consistent from the beginning.  I love that when I talk to author and publishers they know my blog because I rank in my unique little penguins but I also think that there was more that I could have done with them and my theme to really set myself apart.  

Okay now having said all of this, I don’t think that I would have done anything different.  Life is about living, making mistakes, learning lessons and growing and moving forward.  I love my blog and while I go through my slumps I do this for me.  Yes, I love sharing with all of you but really this is my outlet and I love doing it. 

All Right, now I want to hear from all of you bloggers, please!  What would you have changed?

  2. Yeah, I don’t have too much trouble with blogger. I am not tech savvy in any way shape or form! So blogger works for me and I am quite happy with my blog! Only thing that bugs me about blogger is when my dashboard suddenly empties of all the blogs I follow and I have to refresh and sign in and out like 10 times!

  4. I love how you finished answering the question! lol You can totally drive yourself crazy thinking about everything you would change! I would begin with changing the name of my blog. It’s current name is Mother and Daughter Book Reviews, but I didn’t have the foresight to see that my son would want to do it to – nuts! Who knew?! Did I read correctly that your sons will be contributing to your website?

    I’m excited to be following you via Networked Blogs, G+, Twitter, and Email. Would love for you to visit us and reciprocate! Here’s the link to my post:
