Book Blogger Hop


Sign up here. I love this week's twist which Jennifer from Crazy For Books threw in there...


Tell us your NAME and WHY YOU STARTED BLOGGING

My name is Lily and I started blogging when my friend Mary, over at Against All Heresies, suggested I start a blog to keep record of my writing. She was so encouraging to me. I've gotten a bit away from the original purpose of my blog, as life got in the way. Instead of spending my leisure time writing, I spend more time studying and working. I almost let my blog grow cold and idle, until Sweet Mary over at Mary Bennett prompted me earlier this year to write again. Despite my overcrowded schedule I still read quite a bit, so I'm more of a book blog, with some of life mixed in. Thanks for stopping by the hop and I cannot wait to read what started everyone else blogging!!
