We talk a lot as bloggers about things we would like to change and update on our blogs - design, web host, name, features, etc.  What I want to know is what is one thing you have NO interest in changing about your blog?

Such a good question! I think I need to think on this!

I love bloggers.  I love the community.  That's why I started this group.  I love veteran bloggers and I'm all for new bloggers. Half of you are new bloggers, half have been around for 5+ years.  I welcome everyone. I just want to share some thoughts with you.
If there's never fresh blood in the community, we would grow stagnate. I also think there is a lot to be said for earning your way in the book blogging world. It cannot happen overnight and trying to force it doesn't work. Just keep going, you'll get there.  I am growing tired of all the debate on it and I would like for us to realize new bloggers are awesome, old bloggers are awesome, we're all awesome.  And that none of us should expect anything, no matter how long  we've been blogging - not ARCs, not followers, not attention, not a gold medal, not being treated like we're not as good as someone else, no matter if we are experienced bloggers or newbies.
We're all in this together.  I personally say let's stop trying to divide ourselves into groups and just realize every single one of us can learn from every other single one of us.  We all have something to teach, we all have something to learn, we all can be inspiring, we all can be appreciated.  In closing, I love and appreciate you all. ((HUGS))

I seem to miss all the scandals! Good for me, but bad for the community that they happen in the first place. Excellent post!

I was wondering if you all used this strategy to recover from a book that has consumed you?
After I read a really amazing book or a really intense book I get what you call a book hangover.  If you don't know the term, a book hangover is the term we bibliophiles use to describe the inability to move on to another boo...

Reader of historical fiction, YA fantasy, memoirs, and world lit, with a penchant for singing karaoke.
Introduction
I am a book blogger and enthusiastic reader who loves to meet new people.  I have serious obsessions with both yoga and candles.  I think I must have been a flapper and a politically-minded hippie in past lives. When I am not writing or on social media, I am either drawing and painting, dancing, singing karaoke, or with my nose buried in a book somewhere.  If I had money and health, I'd be traveling the world.
