Book Blogger Appreciation Week Award Results

The results are in and QG didn't win the award for Best Spiritual, Inspirational or Religious Book Blog in the Book Blogger Appreciation Week Award contest. Congratulations to the winner: Books, Movies and Chinese Food. Great title, yes?

However, I'm really pleased to have received one of the three nominations in the category, especially since the nomination and award is based on the votes of other book bloggers. I notice that the winner and the other nominee focus almost exclusively on book reviews and related types of posts while QG covers a lot of other topics.

I have been pondering whether to create a separate blog just for book reviews, but given the fact that fewer people follow blogs these days than a mere 5 years ago when QG was first created, I'm not sure I want to divide my efforts. Thoughts?

I like all-purpose blogs, but I know the advice is to find a niche and run with it. Thus I am no help whatsoever. Congratulations on your nomination! Sorry you didn't win.

Thanks, Wendy. That is the advice and actually it has worked well for my daughter who writes a home dec blog.

I've been toying with the idea of setting up a separate book review blog, but probably would cross post the reviews back to this blog every time I posted one.
