I have been nominated for the Sunshine Award, a huge thank you to Mischievous eyes for nominating me. My post will be coming tomorrow afternoon and you will be able to see all of my nominations and the answers to all of my questions but I thought I’d share a couple of answers with you now. Remember to look back to see my answers to the rest of the questions and my nominees!
What inspired you to start blogging?
I am not sure, I think I just wanted to write about all the things that really annoyed me and then my love for books started coming through and now it’s more book blog than rant blog.
How did you come up with the name for your blog?
Well I was young and grumpy and there was a lot of things I hated (and a few I loved) and that’s how it happened.
Recently I have been spending a lot of time reading others’ blogs and I have noticed by posts are considerably shorter than most. I tend to write posts that are around 150 words long. I do this as it means it short and sweet but can still have some real content.
A lot of blogs, though are writing pieces that are 500 plus words long, these are also the more successful blogs. Is this what people want? I personally get bored when there it too much read ( I am not very good at reading from a computer screen at the best if times).
I would love some feedback on this and to see what you guys think
I came across this entirely by chance, I believe I was looking at an art blog and Shared Blogg had liked it. This blog is open to contributors all you need to do in comment on the home page post and you will be added as a contributors. This is not only a great way to get people to read your blog who may never have noticed it before but also (and actually probably my favourite thing about it) a way to find new blogs to read and new bloggers to connect with.
You can find Shared Blogg HERE.
After having to go home before lunch yesterday I have now woken up to similar problems due to the snow. Why can’t we function like Canada? A foot of snow and the world has to stop. I’m sure I will be back at work Monday.
Being tapped though does give me some extra time to schedule blogs and even do some writing, which somehow I have managed to avoid for a number or weeks.
And also drink far too much tea!
Earlier today my boyfriend was reading one of my posts when he noticed that there was an advert at the bottom, I was surprised. I’ve had rather low stats recently partly because I’m not writing as much as I used to, but I believe it in part, is due to this. I have not said I wanted adverts on the page and was quite surpried.
It turns out I can’t remove them as I don’t pay for my blog these are there to help with running costs. I just wish someone had let me know sooner.
I am sorry if they are putting you off but please keep reading!
