Blog Hopping 10/21/2011

Welcome, fellow bloghoppers! You're looking at my personal blog, home to the rants and ramblings of an aspiring author. I also do reviews of werewolf books, which are here, on a separate blog. Feel free to visit and follow both. Since last time, I've talked about broken-down cars, pimped-out cars, e-book pricing, and self-control. Come this Monday, we'll have a review of Brush of Darnkess on the other blog. Have fun hopping!

Book Blogger Hop

This weeks ice-breaker for the Book Blogger Hop:

“What is your favorite type of candy?”

Ah, a Halloween question. Well, I don't eat a lot of hardcore candy, favoring softer stuff like cookies and Pop-Tarts, but when I go decadent, I get Resses Pieces. They're like M&Ms, only peanut-buttery. What's not to like?

This week's ice-breaker for TGIF @ GReads:

"Pick 5 book blogs you visit often & think others should, too."

No. And I'll tell you why: because you just turned your blog hop into an annoying blog award meme. Most book bloggers, myself included, no longer accept those because they're annoying and useless. You have to put a lot of work into them, and noone ever clicks the links. They just see the little thumbnail, think "Oh, jeeze, another award?" and pass on. Think about it. I mean, we've already got a lot of visiting and following to do just for the hop. You want to increase our blog workload by a factor of six over the weekend. For shame, Ginger, you should know better. Anyone who really wants to know what I read, I have a blogroll.

And that's all until next week! Have a look around, and happy hopping!


  1. I respect your opinion but if you didn't like the TGIF question, you really didn't need to post anything at all. I think it was awesome to spread some blogger love around to some lesser known blogs! Not everyone has an easy time getting their blog name out there and yesterday was a great opportunity to do so. I actually found a TON of great blogs yesterday that I had no idea even existed before other bloggers posted about them. I do agree, awards are annoying but I really enjoyed "meeting" other bloggers who weren't on my radar before. I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. OUCH- that was a little mean towards Ginger.....I see that your kind of new to blogging...perhaps a friendly check out my blogroll would have been better...:D

  3. Pop Tarts are usually my daily :)
