BLOGGER SHOUTOUTS! Giving Credit Where Credit is Due. Week 4, Edition 4


If you wonder why I take so much time creating these posts, I have a very good reason.  It is because I believe in giving credit where credit is due.  If I discover a new book because of another blogger's lovely review, I will give them a shout-out.  If I find myself lost in discussion or laughing at a funny post, I will include that here.  I strongly believe in community and what better way to honor each other than by recommending each other to others?

  2. I loved reading your explanation for these posts-I am a bit on the lazy side and not very technologically apt so this would be hard for me to do every week but maybe I could manage to do it once a month since I receive so much from the blogging community. I especially love getting new book recs!

    1. It isn't too hard now that I use getpocket.com because I just have to save a post I've already read to it and it stores it for easy retrieval for these posts later!
