Q: Confess your blogger sins! Is there anything as a newbie blogger that you've done, that as you gained more experience you were like -- oops?

I would say that my biggest 'oops' as a newbie was that I created waaay too many Netgalley books and hardly took the time to review them... My biggest oops I think I still have is that I take too long writing my reviews hence the delay in posting them. Being a perfectionist is not always a good thing, unfortunately 

What was your newbie oops? 


  1. I know exactly how you feel, I still need to read/review a lot of books that I've requested form Netgalley! :/

      Florentine @ Readiculously Peachy

  2. I totally know what you mean! I take for-ever to write a review, because I have to read it over and over again to make sure everything sounds good. xD

    1. Good to know I'm not the only one Daphne ;) Thanks for following and stopping by! :)

  3. My earliest mistake was starting my blog without having a clear direction for it, because then I thought it was cool to have a website. Yeah, it's still cool, but I've found my purpose: writing and Books! :)

    Kaykay @ The Creative Forum
    Happy Reading :)

    1. Good purpose! :) I can imagine being overwhelmed with owning a blog/website and then forgetting to write exactly what you want to write about! But good to know that you found your direction :)

      Thanks for stopping by!:)

  4. I have pretty much the same problem! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Kassandra! Hope to see you around :)

  7. I'm almost totally done with Net Galley becasue they never tell you if you're requesting a totally uncorrected review copy (which I refuse to read) or an edited copy that just wants reviews (which I love to read).

    Thanks for stopping by my FF! :)

  8. Hi, from a new GFC follower.

    Good answer! :)

  9. I'm horribly behind with my Netgalley requested books. I keep telling myself NOT to request more but that site is TOO damn addicting. /sigh

    Anyways, I'm a new follower.
