Book Blogger Hop!

Book Blogger Hop

It's time for another Book Blogger Hop! This is a great event hosted by Crazy for Books and designed to connect book bloggers. I haven't participated in the Hop in a few weeks but I thought I'd jump back in today. The question for this week is:

"Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?"

Not really. It took a long time to come up with my blog name. I wanted something that conveyed that reading is a relaxing, enjoyable activity for me ~ sort of like being on a retreat. I'm happy with it and it took so long to come up with it, I wouldn't want to go through that process again!

I have another blog, Just Playin' Around, where I write about my kids and the activities we do together. I considered changing that one at one time because we were doing a lot more academic types of things rather than just playing. But then I realized that even when we do academic projects, I want it to be fun and playful for the kids. So Just Playin' Around still fits for that one too.

  2. What's in a name? Everything! A name is a label, a description and a promise. I'm very happy with mine - "Howard Sherman, Implementor" but it was quite a journey to get there.

    Hop on over to my blog and find out why - http://www.howardsherman.net
