I’ll be honest; I had no idea how to start this post. Not a clue. And really, that’s an accurate way to describe this whole blogging endeavor. It took me a month to come up with the name and it isn’t like No BS Book Reviews is any sort of masterpiece. Nothing wrong with it either. I like it. Describes what I want to do with the blog, it’s honest and distinctly non-poetic. Robert Frost wouldn’t ever be so forthright, would he? Regardless, I do have a plan now and you deserve to know what you get for staying around.
My goal here is simple. First off, I want to provide reviews that aren’t BS. Too many times I’ve seen people skip over the problems a book has or ignore the book altogether and just say “I liked it.” Well, guess what? That information helps no one. I want to supply people with reviews that actually say something, without falling off the deep end and becoming bone dry. Whether I succeed or not is for you to decide, of course.
Second, I simply enjoy writing and reading. Doing these reviews gives me a chance to combine two hobbies while creating something useful. For me it was only natural. Helps that I’ve been known to be slightly opinionated.
I’m hoping to release reviews every other Thursday with the possibility that sometimes I may release one on the Thursday of an off week. Ultimately, I have to figure out how often I can reliably write these. It goes without saying that I hope to release more often than less.
At some point, I am considering producing other book-related content, besides reviews. What that will be, or when it will be, I haven’t a clue. Maybe something that is slightly more interactive? Guess that just means you’ll have to stick around! (Please? Pretty please?)
Hopefully you know what’s up now. If not, oops.
Hope to be "seeing" you again!
