The Minefield that is running a Book Review blog

I haven’t been a blogger for very long; this site has been up for only 4 months. I love to read, I have since I was small, and I started this site simply to wax lyrical about books I loved. Pretty soon I was obsessed with the stats on the blog, forever looking at what seemed to be popular and thinking up new features to boost its ratings. When I’d checked statcounter for the third time in a day, I realised that my priorities had shifted from the books on the blog to the blog itself. I love running this blog. Yes, sometimes I’d appreciate some help, but I can’t help give a little squee of excitement when I gain a new follower or someone comments on a review.

Authors, reviewers and customers have all been… Keep Reading »
