Book Blogger Hop and Why I Blog


It's Friday again and time for the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books.

(Don't know what the Hop is? In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on!)

Today, Jennifer shakes things up a bit by asking us to answer a question as part of our Hop participation:  why did you start blogging?

I answered this recently in my Welcome post after the Book Blogger Convention (see post here), but the run-on sentence version is that I created The Betty and Boo Chronicles in August 2008 to keep relatives and friends updated on our ever-exciting lives, now that we're living a few hours away from them, and its evolved into a blog that's a combination of book reviews and bookish talk, my perspective on issues in the news (politics, pop culture, whatever), recipes, and personal essays about our family's journey with autism. You never know what you're going to get here.

So, welcome ... and enjoy!

Hi There. Great blog. I looked over your books read in 2009. I got some good ideas for my wish LIst. I also liked the banana picture. It gave me a smile to start my day. Enjoy the hop and have a good weekend.

I do... I do. Enjoy that is. As you say in your about me, your blog is about much more than books and its the combination that strikes me as perfect.

Hey! Just stopped by from the Hop! Is it not amazing how many bloggers do this each week? This week my trip to the Hop is brought to you by the number 7.

I actually think I found you last week so what's the chance that your entry # last week would end in a 2 and this week a 7. Must be fate.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I like that you've combined different elements of your life with books; it gives us readers a sense of who you are, outside of your reading list. I look forward to reading more!

Have a great weekend. :)
