This week my guest blogger is someone who always makes me smile, someone who can infuse a bit of energy into these bones of mine whether they want it or not. Who is this guest blogger?
Sheila of One Person's Journey Through a World of Books!
Yes, there are author interviews, book giveaways, memes, book reviews, and many other goodies to savor on her blog, but it's Sheila's personality that I enjoy the most. She's a happy, energetic, and very giving person, and that's what shines through so well on her blog. If you've never visited One Person's Journey Through a World of Books, I hope you'll click on over to say hi!
Without further ado, let's take a look at where Sheila blogs. Luck is with all of us this week because Sheila is a mobile blogger, and we get to take a look at her cold weather blogging spot as well as her warm weather space. Since winter is still with many of us, we'll start there.... (Don't forget that you can click on each photo to view it full size.)
I have "blogged" my book reading thoughts since before there were blogs. I have large three ring journals filled with the books I have read and my thoughts on them. My friends would go through my binders to find a book choice for their next read. You can just imagine my delight when I found out about blogging!
My book blog, Journey Through Books, is all about books I have read, my book club has some great shots in there (be sure to look at July 2008 entries of our annual Queen event. I love to make reading fun and my favorite discussions are around books and authors. I am well known in our community as the book girl and now that I have discovered book blogs, my passion has only grown.
I have fun with a thing I like to call Morning Meanderings which I do about 5 days a week. This is what I call "me unplugged" I share a little bit of my life, maybe a blog I encountered or a book I seen around.... It's pretty lite, usually kind of funny and my readers tell me they enjoy it.
Recently I inherited the incredible It's Monday, What Are You Reading meme from J. Kaye's Blog. I love this meme and I have met so many wonderful bloggers by taking this one and of course added more books from their suggestions to my TBR pile.
I don't know a lot about web design so currently my blog is through WordPress. I like it because it is simple to use, I choose a template and go from there, but I don't have the versatility that I see on some of the book blogs I read. Some of the widgets I covet are also not available for use on WordPress blogs. I try to find new things to keep it looking good and recently have added a couple pages to it.
My blog has grown in leaps and bounds and I can not even believe I have only been doing this since last June. I hope to meet some of Cathy's readers (if I haven't already) so stop by anytime - the coffee is always on!
The first two photos show Sheila and her cold weather blogging space, which looks very homey and comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to sit in that recliner because I swear I had its twin for years-- I know how comfy it is! I also like the tables on either side which can hold books, laptops, and other tools of the trade.
My favorite thing about Sheila's warm weather space (besides that snazzy mouse) may not be readily apparent. You may have to click on the photo to enlarge it, but take a look at the reflection in the glass behind Sheila's right shoulder. Can you see her blogging companion?
Thank you so very much, Sheila, for letting into your home to take a look at your blogging spaces. We really do appreciate it!
Who's coming up next Wednesday? You'll have to stop by to find out. See you then!
