It's time for another Friday Book Blogger Hop! This is a great event hosted by Crazy for Books and designed to connect book bloggers.
This week, we're doing things a little differently so we can get to know each other. To participate, we're supposed to tell our name and why we started blogging. So: Hello. My name is Julie. I started blogging last August, but it wasn't this blog. It was my Just Playin' Around blog. I actually started that first blog because my mom was asking about blogging and wondered what it entailed. She was considering creating a blog herself. I'm embarrassed to say that almost a year later, I now have two very active blogs and I still haven't created one for her. How terrible is that??? I really need to sit down with her this summer and help her set it up!
As far as why I started My Book Retreat ... I had joined a reading challenge and decided I wanted to keep Just Playin' Around all about my kids, so I created a new blog just for books where I could track my progress.
Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear about why you started blogging, so if you've come by through the hop, be sure to leave a comment so I can visit your blog!
