This a Sunday feature here where we discuss specific topics related to books and the blogosphere.
Let’s talk book tags — love ‘em or…?
Since I only recently started my blog, book tags are a new phenomena for me. It took me a moment to figure them out but I caught on quickly. At first, I was afraid to be tagged because of my fear of doing it wrong. But after awhile, I got the fun of it.
There are a host of tag types. Some are thematic, playing off a season or holiday. Others may be a series of random questions that are book related or designed to evoke responses that tell you a bit more about the responder. And then there are those that are done in the form of a meme where each week, the topic changes.
I’ve discovered that no matter what type the book tag, all have the effect of giving the readers more insight about the blogger. I’ve come to really enjoy reading them, especially those where the questions are pretty clever. I’ve gotten to know a lot of bloggers really well because of them, feeling much more connected with this community.
