As I was looking through my emails today, I stumbled across this tag on Kristin Kraves Books. I figured since I am not doing anything today except being housebound (rain and thunderstorms FTW…not), I would do this.
First Blog Name and Design
My blog was Life of a Crazy Mom from 2013 to 2018. At the time, I was more focused about blogging about my family along with book and product reviews. My blog’s focus shifted from that to just book reviews in 2017. It took me a year to get up the courage to change to Read with Me.
I don’t remember what my blog’s first design was. 6 years ago is a long time to remember what theme I had chosen…lol.
First Blog Post
My first blog post wasn’t a nice one and I deleted it a few months back. I was complaining about people in my life and was using a lot of swears. It was when my 6 year old was in NICU for a week after she was born and I wasn’t in a good place. So, yeah, it got deleted.
First Book Review
My first review was Out of Time by Deborah Truscott and it was published 12-1-2013. I had gotten the book for free (which most of my books were) from Amazon and wrote that awful review.
First Meme Participated In
I ended up having to look back for this. My first meme I participated in was WWW Wednesday hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. My first post was on April 18th, 2018. Yup. Didn’t do one until 2018…lol.
First Discussion Post
You know, I haven’t done one of these before!! Seems like I need to do one now. Or not. I like reading them.
First Book Blog I Followed
The first book blog I followed was Romance Novels for the Beach. I love reading this blog!! Her reviews on romance novels are hilarious and on point!!
First Book Blog Follower
I had to add Book Blog into the title because my first follower wasn’t bookish. Actually, they were a fashion blog called the Citizens of Fashion. But it doesn’t look like they are active anymore. So, I added Book Blog.
The first Book Blog to follow me was Lightningpen.
First Book I Read Because of Other Bloggers
Honestly, I don’t remember. I have been blogging a long time (was on Blogger before WordPress). I can tell you the last book that I picked up, though. The Rules of Burken. A few of the blogs I follow have reviewed it. The reviews were all good too.
So here’s where I am supposed to tag people. Which I am not going to do. Instead, I am extending an invitation to everyone to do it and then tag me so I can read it!!!!
