Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted each week by

This week's question is:

How many years have you been blogging? Anything special you want to tell everyone about your experiences?

I have been blogging since  2007.  9 years.
I started out blogging questions and answers to my friends, but they didn't really 'get' what a blog was at the time, so I switched over to food blogging.
It's a wonderful world of food bloggers out there---but I was not original, I just like to cook.  Then I had a book blog, then a big backyard blog, etc.
It was a lot of work, so I decided to just have my own blog and talk about whatever I wanted to, which is mostly books.  Then food.  Then random stuff.

I've met two blogging friends in person, become pen-pals with a couple others.
Those would be special experiences for me.

The blogging community is a very nice and supportive group of people.
At least the book nerds, foodies are.
It's special.

Blogging is a lot of fun. Especially getting to meet the fellow bloggers in person. :)

I started in December of 2007. What got me going was a genealogy project I was working on with cousins located in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. Rather than us exchange lots of emails I started writing biographies and census reports on the blog so everyone could see what we had and what we needed.

They all pitched in. Then I realized I enjoyed writing about food and here I am with two blogs.

Nice answer.

Book Bloggers are the BEST. Foodies are too.

I have only had a book blog since 2010.

ENJOY your weekend.

Happy Hopping!!

We are a great group, aren't we? Not that I'm biased or anything. :-) Nine years is definitely worth celebrating. That's great, Debbie.
