> The Things You Can Read: Feature and Follow

The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Feature and Follow

Feature and Follow
Share something you’ve learned about book blogging or just blogging in general in the last month.

I've learned you have to remember you started your blog for a reason, don't lose sight of why you began blogging to begin with, and stay true to your blogging mission.  If you try to change your blog to make others happy you probably won't be blogging for long.  Stay true to the course you set for yourself, and you will be a happier blogger.


Don't let blogging take over your reading time.  You need a balance.  I find the longer I blog the more I have to remind myself to read and stop reading about reading on other folks blogs.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read.

How would you answer this one?  Let us know here at The Things You Can Read.

Happy reading to all! ☮

Happy Reading
The Things You Can Read!
Believe In Truth, Beauty, Freedom, Love, and the Power of Books!
