This Week's Question:

Share something you've learned about book blogging or just blogging in general in the last month. 


I've learned a few things that go together. First don't accept every book request. I personally tried to accept them all, I got way behind and spent months reading review books and nothing that I wanted. Which forced me to become reading burned out. Also don't sign up for every tour. They both can be very overwhelming if you let them get out of control. I've learned to only accept the books you really want to read and sign up for tours you really want to. Enjoy your blog!

What have you learned? 


  1. Hi Mandy, I am still a new blogger but I am already feeling the burden of too many book requests. The moment I published my email ad on the about me section, book requests never stopped coming. So I can imagine the kind of dilemma you're in, only yours is 10X worse than mine.
