Around The Blog With Chuckles


We all enjoy snooping and lurking on other people's blogs right? Why not share those entertaining things you found with other readers and bloggers too! Welcome to Around the Blogs with Chuckles, where I take time out to show you some of my favourite blog posts from the previous seven days and link you up so you can check them out. 

This week! New way of doing things. Recently, I've found weekends so busy that I haven't had time to take the second look through the blogs I commented on all week to choose the best posts for this feature. I know I've missed a few really good ones that I liked due to a poor memory. So now as I read and leave comments on blogs each day, I'm taking a few minutes extra to get some onto this post, adding more each day and knowing I'm showcasing more posts each week. Better time management from Chuckles!

This week!

  1. Thank you once again Chuckles. In all honesty, I think you've promoted my blog more than I have :-D

    Wordpress shows me whenever someone clicks a link in one of my posts in a nice neat little section. Does blogger do the same? Just wondering if what kind of drive through traffic you see from posts like these.

    1. Honestly, I don't know what blogger does but I can't recall ever receiving a notification like that. I'm not one for looking at stats generally so I'm blissfully unaware if it increases blog visitors!

  5. Ooh, I need to check out #10 -- I feel so weird about the way people say they won't do negative reviews because they're mean!

    1. Totally agree! I want to know what people really think about the books they read so I can better pick the ones I might enjoy.

  6. I love DNF posts! Thanks for the mention for She Was the Quiet One. That was a disturbing book! And I need to check out the last post. I think honesty is so important in a review and I always love another POV (especially if they agree with me!)

    1. You're welcome! It's fun to get a nice range of genres in the book reviews and a nice range of topics in the posts!
