[Book Blogger Hop] June 16-22nd


Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.

Question:
How do you organize your  blog in terms of what is in your side bar? Do you have categories and defined sections in your side bar?

Answer: 

I don't have any special organization in my side bar. I have things in order of what is most important and what would be most help for anyone who is reading or navigating my page.  I like things to be neat and clean. Although I am not putting down anyone who does, I don't like having a lot of graphics or photos flashing all over the page. I think it's too distracting and too much for me. I prefer things to look as professional as possible. Plus I think it makes it easier for me to know where everything is. I have a top bar also, that I hope is not overlooked because it has important tabs like my master review list, the tab for anyone who wants me to do an honest review of their book, and a tab with all my contact information!

Thanks for reading!

    1. Thank you! I think simplicity just makes it easier for people to stay invested. If they get too overwhelmed with flashing graphics it may be too much.

  2. I'm a neat and clean fan too. It just makes it easier to look at and all the complicated stuff can mess with load times.

  4. I completely agree with you. Simple and organized is the best.

    I do have headers to separate each section of my blog, though.

    Thanks for sharing, and Happy Hopping!!
