Feature and Follow Friday (August 10th)

First of all, I am so sorry that I was unable to comment on any of my lovely commenter's blogs last week. I had a wedding (not mine, of course) last week and I over-estimated my ability to prepare for it. I do not like weddings. It's torture for any person attending who is not the married couple.

I will comment and follow every commenter this week :)

Reviews This Week:

Q: What would you do over if you were to start your blog again from scratch?

I think I would do 3 things differently.
  1. I would start on Blogger. Wordpress just didn't work for me. I knew I needed to change almost immediately but I am a stubborn cuss. 
  2. I would make the blog all prettified from the start. I tried to skate by on the basic stuff early on but it was not at all a reflection of me or what I want this blog to look like. Books Like Breathing has never looked like I wanted it to look until very recently. 
  3. I would (and should) have focused my blog on romance novels immediately. It's what I have always liked to read so I have no idea why I didn't declare it my focus immediately but it definitely is now. 


  1. I used to have a blog on Wordpress so I know exactly what you're talking about. And I'm a lover of romance too!

  5. This site is very pretty :-) and I agree, blogger's a pretty good platform. I tried paying for a website and well...blogger is easier to tweak.

  6. A lot of bloggers seems to move their blogs to wordpress, but I never had any problem with Blogger, so I'm sticking with it. :) Also I love your layout, it's so pretty! And yay! for sticking with the genre romance, because somethimes I need a good recommendation. (somethimes I love to read out of my comfort zone!) Have a great weekend.

  7. Hi! Happy Friday!

    Ya, I'm really glad I started my blog with blogger from the beginning, I just find it more easy to navigate than wordpress.

  8. First of your banner is so pretty! I couldn't resist!
    I'm glad I started out on blogger rather than wordpresss because I heard wordpress was kind of pain. I'm glad I never switched to wordpress!
