Book Blogger Confessions: Time Machine

Question for Monday June 18th:

We have created a blogging time machine! Pretend you can start over. Knowing what you know now about blogging – what do you wish you did differently when it comes to creating/running your blog?

. . . *stunned silence*. . .
. . . *cricket noises*. . .

Could it be? Are you serious? I get another chance! SWEET!!!

Alright, younger much less experienced me here is the deal:

Be strict in the books you choose to review
Don't force yourself through a book
Don't try to get an ARC, well maybe just that one
Don't do things just to get followers
Book reviews aren't important only giveaways(ignore - see above line)
Don't care if no one comments(see above line)
Don't buy that Kobo(eReaders are of the devil, not you Nook)
Ask the librarian to order books
Don't pass up the opportunity to meet her gypsy sister(charmed snake armlet)
Don't read scary books right before falling asleep(nightmares)
Don't watch Twilight right before falling asleep(frolicking nightmares)
Don't get sucked into envying other peoples' book stashes
Don't buy more books than you can chew, I mean read
Don't worry if no one agrees with your book obsession
Don't sign up for Klout(just not seeing a reason yet not to mention the stress)
Don't be afraid to talk to an author or blogger(they rarely bite)
Don't forget to wear that charmed snake armlet(see gypsy)
Stalking is not okay(Oh wait I only dreamed that incident)
Maybe consider picking a blog name that is a bit less of a mouthful(maybe)

Yep, just do what you want to do and don't worry. This is about you having fun with books. So have fun!

Anyway, thanks for the topic.
