What is your blog about?
#61
It's a good idea to blog about any little thing that you are educated in. I think the most successful blogs are often about niche markets that haven't been tapped into yet. I run a music and literature blog which is mostly centered on the culture of the university town and big city I have had first-hand experience within.

I find that very interesting. What type of books do you typically read/review? I've heard that craft blogging has a good following.

I know it sounds deadly boring, but really it is a way for me to stay sane. At first I was just writing it for myself, but I have regular readers in several different countries. I write an entry every day, It is not exactly a diary, just selected snippets of personal observation. Some aspects of my life are never commented on in the blog. My second blog is about books, mostly it is reviews of books I have read. The blog I am working on now will be about crafts

I read whatever takes my fancy, I like crime fiction but I have written about all sorts of books, including childhood favourites, books about food, local history books, books about trains (my husband loves trains!). I don't always write glowing reviews but if I really don't like a book and I can't find anything good to say about it I don't write about it.

Could you post a link to your blog? I'd like to check out your non-fiction book reviews.

I agree with that. It reminds me of hearing about a kid who sold a site that listing soccer scores for a lot of money.

Sometimes I think the saying "do what you love and the money will follow" applies to this kind of thing.

It's http://deadlipsucker.blogspot.com but there aren't any book reviews up yet, only CDs at this point.

Taggart, I agree with you completely. Blogging is a great opportunity as far as I'm concerned because it allows people to take their interests and actually stand a chance of gaining a living by discussing them. So many people are 'experts' on their hobbies.

As you will see it is a fairly new blog and I have to sort out a better index and there are a few other things to be tidied up.

It looks great. I read though some of the reviews already. Very smart way to work in those amazon links Wink
