Book Blogger Hop


I saw this a few months ago and I've been meaning to participate for a while now and today I finally remembered on the right day of the week. The Book Blogger Hop is a way for bloggers to connect with each other. It's hosted by Crazy For Books and every week there is a different question to answer. You can look around and see how other bloggers answered. It's a weekly even but you don't have to participate every week.

This weeks question is:

"Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?"

No, definitely not. I played around with a bunch of different names when I first started. Then I remembered this junk shop near a pizza place by my college called Cosmic Debris. Every once in a while I would go in and look around and find the most random collection of awesome, the kind of stuff that you know someone totally forgot they owned and you can't imagine them getting rid of it.

When I first started my blog I kind of felt like my brain was cluttered with junk. I read like crazy and sometimes I would just forget what I had read or remember a piece of a plot but not what book it was from. It would drive me nuts. Then I started the blog and it was a place to collect and organize all the debris which was awesome and helpful.

  3. What’s in a name? Everything! A name is a label, a description and a promise. I’m very happy with mine – “Howard Sherman, Implementor” but it was quite a journey to get there.

    Hop on over to my blog and find out why – http://www.howardsherman.net

  7. Hello! I found you through the hop!
    For me, I won’t change my blog name. For me, the blog name holds the identity of the blog and the blogger. I’ve been blogging for more than a year now. I’m used to it.

    Here’s my post: http://shusky20.blogspot.com/2011/02/book-blogger-hop-15.html

    I’d like to invite you over to my blog as I share the love with YA giveaways! They end on Feb. 28. I hope you drop by!
    Thank you and have a nice weekend!

  8. In case anyone is interested (YA Book Blogger) the store is in Farmingdale NY across the street from SUNY Farmingdale. They spell their name Cosmik Debris, so if you're ever near the Nassau/Suffolk County border on Long Island you should check it out.
