Q: When and why did you start blogging?
A: I started blogging in February of 2010. I began blogging to reach people about the Web site I had started (Parentalbookreviews.com). I had been reading Young Adult books for awhile, and parents were always asking, “Is this book suitable for my child?” I saw a need to provide information, and a blog was the best way to spread the word. Since then, it’s grown into something much more than just a content site.
Q: How do you think your blog stands out amongst other book blogs?
A: Firstly, we provide a service that has been very useful for parents, teens and surprisingly many other bloggers who ask us to read certain books so they can decide if it is suitable for them/their child. Secondly, there are six of us, all at different ages, blogging together, so we reach a wide audience. We have a 50-year-old grandmother, two 30-somethings moms, two teen girls and a teen boy who each have a specific day that we write. We also do a lot of audiobook reviews, which seems to be another things we’ve become known for. (more…)
