Book Blogger Hop - 6/6 - 6/12

 Question of the Week:

When you view someone's profile, what information do you like to see?

My Answer:

The main and most important thing to me is seeing the link to the blogger's blog.

If the blogger has more than one blog, it would be helpful to indicate the one that is the main reading blog.

After viewing the blog link, I would like to see the owner's FIRST name.  

I hate to say hello Silver's Reviews. :) I want to call the blog owner by his or her first name.

Those are two most important things I like to see.

What about you?


  1. I'm the same to, the first thing I look for is the website link in their blogger profile so I can pop over, without that you start to play detective lol x

  2. "If the blogger has more than one blog, it would be helpful to indicate the one that is the main reading blog."

    Ahhh yes I agree with this totally, some people have a ton of blogs. I never thought of this for myself - I have 3 blogs. But its obvious which one is my book blog.

    I don't really care about the name thing, I don't really like people to know my name until they know me.

  3. Hm, I just looked at my profile and it's out of date.

  4. It is difficult at times to find folks.

    The Google+ sites are the most difficult for me to find.

    THANKS for stopping Sharon.

  5. More than one blog does get tricky.

    I only meant a person's first name.

    THANKS for stopping, Wall-to-wall books.

  6. Good question for you then, Kathy. :)

    Glad you stopped by.

  7. LOL You know, sometimes it drives me crazy not knowing a blogger's name. But then sometimes they just want to be known by their blog so I suppose. But then I like to do some detective work just just find out who they are, and it works sometimes.

  8. I think it is nice to call someone by name instead of their blog name, but everyone has his/her preference.

    Thanks for stopping, phaxx027.

  9. I hadn't thought about the name issue but you're so right! I don't like not having a name to call someone by. I'm thinking about going back to the blogger profile instead of using google+. Like you I find it a little difficult to navigate.

  10. Google+ is very difficult for me to find folks.

    I like everything simple and easy to find, and I think the profile is the place to have it.

    THANKS for stopping, Katherine.

  11. Especially with blogs which don't really have anything reading related in their blog titles it can be really hard to decide whether or not it's THE link! And I also like it when the name is clear, because it makes it all a bit more personal!
    Thanks for sharing Elizabeth, and another great question suggestion :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  13. Thanks for stopping, Julie. I liked your answer as well.

    And...thanks for saying it was a good question.

    I like to submit questions that help all of us make our blogs better and to try to solve problems for each other.

  14. I is very helpful to have the blogger's first name. Sometimes I search throughout a blog before finding it. In comments, I like to address the person by name.

  15. I agree! It does make it more personable to use their first name.

  16. Definitely more personal to use a person's name.

    I do that in "real" life and like to do it online as well.

    Thanks for stopping, Vicki.

  17. I agree! I like a link to the blog and a first name.

  18. I so agree with you on the name thing, it is so hard when the blogger doesn't identify themselves! It feels so impersonal
