Musing Mondays: August 1

Musing Mondays: August 1


This week’s musing is about reading…blogs!
As a book blogger, does reading others’ blogs spark ideas for what to write on your own?
Creativity is Originality . 
Its all up to you. Its your creativity and you need to know how to use it wisely. 
Hmm...I would have to seriously think about this. I do believe in the creative spark that creates your idea and I do condone copying from another blog. Its copyrighted material and its wrong. But you can't help but be inspired by other blogs as well.  I am not saying to copy anyone's  material (its  obviously stealing another person work) but try to think of things on your own.

Sometimes I am inspired by writing, music people have on their  blogs, or just pictures. Sometimes its a quote that will stick with me for the week as dwell on it. Sometimes it inspires to write as well. I love it when a blogger talks about something he/she is passionate about it. It brings me in , allowing for the reader  to want  to know more about the blogger.

A guilty pleasure I have on other blogs is .... blog layouts! Especially if you have a great layout ( I stare and stare ). How do I say it? I  suddenly become mesmerized? I know everyone think its weird but that is just me.

  1. Good answer. I think it is important to be original as a book blogger! I agree about the blog layout! Also, as a bit of feedback, I found that I needed to highlight your post to be able to read it. The dark font on dark background was hard to read otherwise. Feel free to check out my Musing Monday here.

  2. Thanks for telling me. It looked normal on my end. I will try and fix it as soon as possible.
