Top 10 Tuesday: Blogging Confessions

This week, Top Ten Tuesday puts us in confession! Here are my blogging confessions (in no particular order):
  1. I feel guilty re-reading books I've loved because I feel like I should be keeping up with the new releases and talking about an old book I've read repeatedly (and probably already blogged about) doesn't bring anything new to the table. Unless I want this to be the All Things Awesome About Laura Ingalls and Anne Shirley blog.
  2. I feel I should respond to comments right away and when I don't the GUILT IS TERRIBLE. It's like a thank you card I forgot to send my grandma.
  3. I feel I should take blogging seriously and work to attract more followers and yet I can't be arsed because the "real bloggidyness" of sponsorship, giveaways, follow-backs, and unending self-promotion seems annoying as all get out.
  4. I often feel inadequate as a book blogger because I don't read nearly as many books as other bloggers seem to. I'm averaging a book a week (which would mean a post a week if I could get my act together) and I see bloggers posting 3-4 reviews a week! How?
  5. I actively avoid blogging about The Book Everyone Is Blogging About, because I am intimidated by the sheer glut of reviews. Surely, I can bring nothing new to the TFIOS party.
  6. I wish I could blog more about the non-bookish parts of my life, but I worry it would either bore the socks off you or you would use the information I share to find my house and steal all my books (or both, I guess ... you could be so bored by me that you decide I don't deserve all my books?).
  7. I'm constantly embarrassed by the grammar and spelling mistakes I find in published posts (especially considering the number of times I re-read each post before publishing).
