The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.
There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
27th – August 2nd – Do you agree or disagree with this statement: A blogger’s first name should be in a prominent place on his/her blog. (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
I think having a first name or a nickname on your blog can be helpful – especially when a lot of book blog names are a mouthful, it can be an easier way to identify a blogger. But I think it is by no means necessary, some people are wary of putting names online, or don’t want real life friends seeing their blog, or are shy and would rather not. A lot of people add their names once their more confident, but its not necessary for a book blog.
