Back At The Hop


It's Friday and that means it's time for the Book Blogger Hop sponsored by Crazy-For-Books. It's a time to talk about books and blogging and to venture out on the internet and visit other blogs. Hop on the link to participate.

I'm back in the Hop groove. Here's this week's question:

Do you ever wish that you had named your blog something different?

Not exactly. The only difference I wanted was to name it just "Reader's Block" instead of "My Reader's Block." But somebody out there had already claimed it. And posted like three times several years ago and then abandoned it. That kind of annoyed me. But I got over it. The idea behind the name was that I am a reader and a writer wanna-be. I wanted to get the flavor of "writer's block" and the fact that I'm reading and reviewing books (putting them on the chopping block so to speak).

Interesting...especially with the speed in which you read, how could you have a reader's block?!

I actually like My in front of it, sounds more personal. I like that you have The Folks on my Block for your followers also.

Here is my response.

I agree with Marce. It does have more of a personal touch with "My" in front of Reader's Block.

I agree with Marce and Shirley. I also like the story behind the name, combining reading and writing.

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

Hopping through. I think the "My" in front of Reader's Block is cool.
