For those of you who are up-to-date on the happenings in the Lit Blogging world, I’m sure you’re familiar with the whole debate of whether or not blog reviews are better/just as effective as professional reviews.
So after reading about it for a week or so, I’m going to throw in my two cents.
I blog mostly for me. It’s a personal thing. A way to share my own personal thoughts/feelings with all you wonderful readers out there. And because I can’t keep a journal regularly (but let’s not go into that).
That being said, the reviews I publish on this site are merely my own personal reflections of books that I’ve read. Chances are if I don’t enjoy the book I don’t post a review, unless it’s one I can recognize as having merit (even if I didn’t enjoy it myself). I’ve written book reviews for years, even before I got this blog. To me reviews are a great way for me personally to keep track of what I’ve read and whether or not I enjoyed the book. Because, let’s face it, I read so many books I can sometimes never keep them straight (even if I re-read them, which I do a lot).
Anyway, this brings us to the close of another ramblings session with Alyssa. As always, comments and opinions are encouraged, even if they don’t match mine!
