FF Friday: In Which I Explain My Stupid Blog Title


Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This week’s question: How did you come up with your blog title and address? Does it have a special meaning for you?

Answer: My blog became a book blog by accident. At the time I started it, I was reading a lot of diary-style personal blogs, and I thought I wanted one of those. That’s why my blog’s address is my name. It was originally intended to be read only by my friends and family. However, when I tried to write my “diary,” I discovered that I’m very, very boring. I had no idea what to blog about. So, I started blogging about the books I was reading and the writing projects I was doing. That’s how I became the proud owner of a book blog.

“Read All The Things!” comes from my TBR pile and a meme. My TBR pile is a literal pile of books. It used to be on a nightstand (and on the floor around the nightstand), but now it’s on a shelf. Years ago, I named this pile “All The Things,” as in “There are all the things I need to read.” Then I saw this picture on the Internet, and the blog title was born.



It’s not a good title, but it’ll do for now.

If you want to be friends on Goodreads, TwitterBookLikes, or G+, that would be awesome, too. Click the links to go to my pages on those sites. I’m looking forward to “meeting” you.
