Basic Details

Basic InfoI blog about books and my photography mainly of abandoned places in Scotland. My "What I Learned" book review seems to be pretty unique and is proving extremely popular with publishers, authors and readers. I chose this style of review after a lot of careful consideration - the 'quote images' lend themselves well to social media sharing. The travel photographs were really added as an extra as people kept asking me. I have recently added into my blog cycle "etsy spotlights" ehere I feature my top 5 from 1 particular seller, "etsy edits" where I choose 10 products from 10 different sellers based on a specific theme, and I have been throwing in the odd recipe too! My first love though is books, and is likely to remain that way! As well as the "What I Learned" reviews I also blog "Reading Lists" with all books from authors I have reviewed, and "Must Read Releases" where I feature 15 books recently published. I have worked hard over the last 6 months to build my blog and my DA is really starting to reflect this. The author feedback in particular is humbling!
What Blog Means To YouBlogging has kept me sane through an extremely difficult time, particularly the last 6 months. I have been poorly and things have been tricky - not much cash coming in and a 15 year old daughter I am supporting on my own. I have had some of my lowest lows over the past 6 months, and my blog and the interaction with the outside world has really kept me going. I feel I still have a purpose, and my daughter see's me putting something, however small and insignificant, out into the world. The emails I receive from the authors and etsy sellers I have blogged about really make it worth while.
