Friday Memes 7/12

The Question:
How long have you been blogging?

My Answer:
I personally have been blogging for a little less than two years but my sister started this blog back in 2004 I think!

It was only the wind. Charlotte Harding wrapped her arms around her waist, trying to convince herself that there was no reason to tremble like a cottonwood leaf in a storm.

My Thoughts
Great beginning! Definitely makes you wonder what she's scared of that she has to convince herself that the sounds she was hearing was just wind.

Wow! Your sister has been blogging for awhile!

Hi Abbi,

She definitely sounds scared and that in itself poses the question 'why?', so who could resist reading on to discover the reason.

Starting a book with a question, must surely be a good hook for attracting a reader.

I have only ever read a couple of 'Western Romances', however this one sounds as though it has real potential and I hope that you enjoy it.

I have been blogging for about three years and although I absolutely love it and enjoy 'meeting' so many new people, I have often considered that it takes away so much of the limited time which I have available for reading, that I really shouldn't continue ... However, blogging really is quite addictive and a habit which I am finding it difficult to contemplate breaking!

Nice post, thanks for sharing and have a great weekend,

That is so nice, to continue on a blog your sister started. Nice to work together.

Abbi Hart said...

Billy-Yeah! Though she did kinda let it go for a bit before I took over.

Yvonnne-It definitely is a great way to hook a reader and I am enjoying it! I have read 4 of this author's other books all of which were good! Blogging is rather addictive and I too love all the people I've been able to "meet" through it!

Kathryn-It is nice and it made it very easy for me to jump in!

Vonnie said...

Oh, that's right. You took over your sister. You are doing a great job!

Btw, I wonder why Charlotte was shivering over the sound of the wind.

Wow, your sister sounds like a blogging pro! I personally love storms, although perhaps I wouldn't want to be caught in one, depending on how strong it is! I do hope nothing happens to Charlotte! Thanks for sharing :)
