Sunday Salon: Book Blogger Purist?

The Sunday Salon

Are you a book blogger purist? Do you only have book related posts or do you review/post on anything/everything that catches your eye?

On this blog I write primarily on books of what ever genre takes my fancy.  I occasionally write on other topics that take my fancy, but are usually book related – e.g. if I see a newspaper article that interests me and I think I have something to say, then I’ll write about that.

In late 2014, I decided to close one of my other blogs down as I had not been paying it any (enough) attention once I set my book blog up. So regular readers will have noticed that some of the sewing/crafting posts have made it over onto this blog as I closed the other one down. It was a bit of a wrench, as it was my first blog, but at the end of the day, I simply wasn’t paying it enough attention and I wanted to recognise another part of myself as a blogger.

The craft related posts have been of mixed success but it’s still early days yet, and I’ll like to see where it goes from here – I dont want to lose the work I did in the other site, but I’ve been struggling with keeping the two going.

For something that’s short, but which I dont have enough to write a full post (usually a link to a webpage I found interesting), I tend to put out a tweet or two for anyone who has been paying attention.

So what about you, dear reader? Books only or do you have anything else?

  1. It’s books and anything reading related for me Nordie. So that will include the future of libraries which I’m very passionate about. I have another blog which is related to my interest in family history but I do find it difficult to maintain the two, as yiu experienced. Combining them isn’t really an option though.


  2. It’s book reviews and book related posts only for me. I do monthly, yearly round ups, talk about book prizes, reading events and acquisitions, but in the main it’s reviews.


  3. I started off writing my blog about hypnosis. It was an experiment thing. After my hypnosis course I felt I needed to try new things. Like writing a blog. However I realised, quite quickly, that I have lots of interests and like to write. Writing, I now think, is what I enjoy doing. It’s a sort of diary, soundboard thing. It incorporates hypnosis, NLP, Reiki, books, dog walking, nothing much. It’s good to branch out I think. Keep trying your crafting inroads, although I’m more a reader than a crafter, blogs are for you as well as others.


  4. My blog, Head Full of Books, is mainly about books though I occasionally write about other things, but usually of a bookish subject. MY SUNDAY SALON is a weekly update of my doings, not just what I read. I started the blog to communicate with my students. I don’t think most of them read it so I had to retrench and decided tt is my blog and it is mainly for me, so i write about what i want to. Take a look around and see what you think.

  5. Gah. Pressed post too soon! I used to have separate blogs for my various interests, but it was impossible to keep up with them all, so they merged into one, which I still have problems keeping updated haha! I still mainly blog about books though 🙂
