Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question –

Share something you’ve learned about book blogging or just blogging in general in the last month.

There are so many great things that I've learned about blogging.  One is that even though it often feels like I'm talking to myself, there are people out there reading what I write and caring about some of my thoughts and opinions.  I think it is important to voice an opinion but try to be sensitive to how it can be interpreted.  

Another thing I've learned about blogging in general is that if you are going to start a blog, make sure that you create a web address that is memorable as well as a title that is meaningful and memorable as well.  If you are planning on "marketing" your blog, you should try to create a title and/or web address that hints to the reader what you are all about.  We chose the name The Paperback Princesses because it was a play on words with one of our favourite Canadian children's books, the Paperbag Princess.  Since there are two of us, we made it plural.  We chose the website because that was what we were doing, focusing on YA titles.  Anyway, you get my drift.  Happy blogging!

We would love to hear what you have to say about our posts. We often try to comment on your comments as well so feel free to start a conversation! Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and event postings. Be sure to check out our own personal meme page. Check out Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it and a few others. We try to not only focus on new YA books but also great titles from the past.
