Book blogger hop: book club bloggers

image
I’m joining in with Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer‘s book blogger hop again this week, where they post a question which you and other bloggers answer, hopping from blog to blog to see people’s answers. This week, the question is…

Do any of your book club members have a blog? Do you compare notes if they do?

The answer to this (and it’s a short one this week!) is yes and no.

One member of my book club does have a blog, a really good one, but it’s not a book blog.  So, whilst we regularly talk about books when we meet – in and outside of book club – we rarely talk about blogs.

We did initially as we both set up at the same time and both use wordpress and we might occasionally talk about something the other has posted but neither of us does it for more than a hobby and neither is more or less an expert than the other.  The same with social media.

So, once the initial thrill and excitement – the “oh my god, I’ve started a blog” moment died down, so did the discussions.  Now it is part of our lives and something mentioned in passed.

What about you, do your friends have blogs – book related or otherwise – and do you compare notes?

  1. I have one friend with a blog and we do talk about it some but our styles are so different that it isn’t very often. Mostly we talk about the books we read!

    1. Much better to talk about books I think. 😄

  2. I didn’t even think beyond Book Blogs! But the answer is still going to be no – no-one has a blog. I am the only one and they support me a lot. So it helps! Here’s my Friday Meets: http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2016/08/friday-meets-12-august-2016.html

    1. That’s so good they support you…it makes a huge difference.

  3. I don’t really know anyone in RL with a blog either (that I know of!) but several people have expressed interest. And I do have a local book club that meets at a doughnut/ coffee place, but I haven’t joined yet. I have been thinking about it… it looks like a nice sized group.

    1. I suppose blogging makes you think more people do it than do. I love my book club, though we don’t meet as often as we used to.

  4. I don’t think I know anyone in person who has a blog. Online–yes, but no one in person. Oh, wait! My husband. But then, he doesn’t really blog anymore so I’m not sure he counts.

    Thank you for sharing! I hope you have wonderful week!

    1. When he did did you guys discuss? I suppose what is nice about blogging is you can make friends through it all over the world.

      1. He wasn’t a book blogger, but we did talk about our blogs and our posts. As it is, he still reads most of my book reviews before I post them and he follows my blog. 🙂

  5. I’m in the same boat, friends that write blogs but not about books. Do you find other types of communication methods to discuss books outside of book club? I get into a world of trouble with text messaging. Do you all review on Goodreads, talk over Skype, or chat while reading it in group chats? Thanks for sharing!

    1. We don’t tend to outside of book club in a formal way. A few are on goodreads but mainly it’s when we meet up. Thanks for visiting 😄

Let me know what you're thinking...
