How Long Have You Been Blogging For?

I've been blogging for just about 8 months, and I'm interested to get an idea how long other people have been blogging for.From people I've met, it seems that most bloggers have been going for less than 18 months, and then there's the heavyweights who have been going for years and years. So is 18 months the hump in a blogger's life?What do you guy's reckon, how long have you been blogging for?Matthew - Bibliofreak.net - A Book Review BlogSee More

Hello, Matthew. I just joined Book Blogs about a week ago and have been clicking around looking at the discussion boards and checking out people's blogs. I like the look and content of Bibliofreak and have become a follower. I recently started a blog, Old Books by Dead Guys, http://obdg.blogspot.com, devoted primarily to reviews of classic works, and I see you sometimes venture into that territory as well (Dickens, Camus, Bellow). Please take a look at my blog when you get a chance, and follow if it interests you. Karl

Haha, aye kind of :-D

Just read your review for Northern Lights, fab! It's still in my to-read list on Goodreads :-S i'm hoping to get it soon. Another one you recommended, The Time-Torn Man was delivered the other day, i couldn't help but start it even though i've already got loads to read. So far so good, You can tell Claire Tomalin adored him ay.

Any time is fine for the Q&A's, right now i'm chockoblock with book tours & other things, so no pressure. I will need your email addy though if that's ok?

Well i'm back and almost fully recovered lol.

 

Awk well that's good being able to borrow them whenever! That'd be heaven.

 

Lol, i had no idea either, i literally spent a night once going through everyone's blogs to find out all i could. They seem to be fab to get traffic through. There are some pretty fun ones out there too.

 

Lol, maybe it was a holiday like you said? No idea. I know mine is always up and down like a yo-yo depending on what i post. I noticed the meme's and blogger interview pulls more people in. Speaking of which, i know it's late but do you still fancy being Friday's slot for the blogger interview? I can send the questions to your email? If you've a lot on- which you probably do, i'm swamped too :-( then it's no problem i can post it next Friday. xo

Awk well aye that's ok then.

 

Na, it's this weekend. I travel to Newcastle tonight, very excited! :-)

Yeah i suppose, you don't have to buy full albums which i tend not to do.

I'll send the Q's next week if that's alright? You can be Friday the 2nd's slot if you want?

Lol, do you know what, i still don't know what meme stands for, all i know is it is a weekly thing you do on your blog lol!! I've got two now, Teaser Tuesdays and Dirty Little Secrets. It's a good way to drive traffic to your blog. Oh and i'd defo recommend taking part in a blog hop, that really does drive a lot of traffic through.

Did it, mine's is up and down like a yoyo! But i've noticed the same faces popping up. I just hope i can hold on to their interest! Lol.

Aw no way. I just followed some advice other people said and it eventually worked ok. Clear cookies, sign in without checking the 'keep me signed in' box. I just write new posts and put the links to them in the pages, so i know people can comment. Nightmare ay!

 

Aah righto.

 

Ain't been yet, it's this weekend. Leave for Newcastle Thursday night, then me and a pal get the bus on Fri at half 5 in the morning *yawn* to then travel up.

 

Awk i've no specific genre of music i like, my ipod is full of such a mixture, from classical to heavy rock to indie to dance etc etc. Pretty much like my taste in books- it's all over the place! lol.

Aye their last album was fab. Their new album is just brilliant, can't stop listening to it like.

Did you aye, just a quick & easy meet and greet :-) I've no idea! I think the Thursday Meme had something to do with it, i noticed i've more visitors on days i post reviews and the meme question. But i always come on here and post in most of the groups about there being a new review, i do on twitter too.
