Top 10 Blogging Confessions

 Top 10 6 Blogging Confessions
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

So I couldn't come up with 10, and while I started to feel a bit guilty about that, I realized that I just have to let my guilt go when it comes to books and writing, and embrace that I've kept this endeavor going far longer than I ever thought I would.  That being said, here are a few of my blogging confessions.

1) I'm terrible at proofreading.  Horrible.  And I like commas,. and I'm sure I over use them, a lot

2) I feel guilty when I don't post.  Really guility.  It's not as if the five wonderful people who actually read my blog would even notice, but I feel committed to this here blog, and when I skip a day it's like I've forgotten to turn in a homework assignment.

3) I'm not always as honest as I'd like to be.  I can't even imagine having a book published.  The time.  The frustration.  The bravery to have your words read by others.  So when I come across a book I don't particularly like, it's hard for me to say how I truly feel because I so totally admire that authors who have the courage to put themselves out there.

4) If it wasn't for this blog, it is very likely that I would have no recollection of what I've read.  I'm kind of terrible at remembering plots and names.

5) I really write to amuse myself.  I sometimes think my reviews need to sound more professional, and then I realize that the whole point of this exercise has been to express myself, so it can't be helped that a little bit of my weirdness slips onto the screen.  Some of my favorite posts to write have been about random things I think are awesome (i.e. Tim Curry), and those are purely for my own enjoyment.

6) I don't make enough time to keep up with some of my favorite bloggers.  Really need to do that.

Can't wait to see what's on your list!

  2. I'm with you on 1,3 and 4. You really shouldn't feel guilty about skipping some posts. And I was bemoaning that my review are too stiff and don't have enough personality so I also don't think you should feel bad about #5!

  3. It's like you're in my head. I struggle with #3 all of the time. And #4 really describes my reading life. I never remember details later.
