In the last weeks I thought a lot about what I want from blogging and my blog. You may have noticed that recently I posted no new book previews or "Mr. Postman, please bring me" posts. The reason for it is a book I blogged about several times last year and that I was super excited for but then disappointed me a lot. I not only disliked the book, I actually hated it. That made me think about my blog and what has changed on it since I started with blogging in August 2008.
When I started "About Happy Books" I posted reviews about my favourite books and nothing else. I don't want to go back to that completly and decided to be more careful about book previews. author interview, giveaways, etc. . In the future I will concentrate more on the books I already read and enjoyed. I want to be 100% positive about everything that happens on my blog. I will go on on with feautures like"Favourites of the week", "Mr. Postman ..." and "From Europe to the world" because I like them, but I will be more careful about which books I praise before I read them.
Book blogging is a hobby I engage in because I love reading and talking about my favourite authors & books. I want to have fun while blogging, so concentrating on what feels comfortable to me and on what fits to my personality & convictions is the right thing to do. I hope you will continue to accompany me on my journey through the beautiful , exciting and fantastic world of books.
