Day 2 is going to start off with a bang…well maybe a small one. So what are the pros and cons of blogging?

  • Reading
  • Sharing my opinion
  • Access to ARCs
  • Access to free books
  • Access to Publishers
  • Learning to write better
  • Meeting authors
  • Giveaways!
  • Meeting Sophia Rose
  • Fellow Bloggers
  • Finding new authors to love
  • Discussion points
  • Venting frustrations but having fun with it
  • Not taking everything as serious life or death moments
  • Feeling of accomplishment


  • Unappreciative winners of giveaways – some can be downright snotty
  • Hours spent online and getting nothing done
  • Hours spent formatting posts
  • The cyclical reader numbers
  • When things just won’t work
  • Google taking away all the fun toys for blogging
  • Feeling it is a job not a hobby
  • Getting behind on reading obligatios
  • Hackers & Spammers
  • Getting buried under my TBR pile
  • Drama
  • Too many book sites: Goodreads, Booklikes, Bookish, Library Thing, Shelfari, etc.

Great list! I agree with some of your points but I decided I won’t stress over it anymore. This sphere is big enough for everyone so I’ll just bury my nose in what I want to read and fluck the rest LOL

P.S. Add me in Shelfari.

Sophia Rose

I added you. Which reminds me….I need to update my shelf. Groan.


As someone in danger of being buried under her TBR pile, I can totally relate to your cons list! But my favorite part of blogging is discovering so many great new authors, all thanks to the awesome book bloggers I’ve met over the years! Love this community!

Fantastic list! I love discussion points too! And all the hours spent.
