Monday Memes

Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
Today's question:
As a book blogger, does reading others’ blogs spark ideas for what to write on your own?

My answer:
When I read other bloggers' post that I do find interesting, I do think that "I wish I had thought about that", but to actually than use it, I don't.  Unless it is something that is so phenomenal and I think it pertains to me and/or my followers, I might, but I always will always give credit, give the link as to the original post, and talk first about how I found it on someone's blog.  I recently found an event that I host on my blog, on another blog, where the some of the questions were the same, but no mention of my blog. 

August is being hosted by Staci from Life in the Thumb
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

I mostly stick with memes and a few book reviews on my blog, therefore I have to say that other blogs spark my interest. If not for you I probably would not post any book reviews.

I read the book Escape by Barbara Delinsky, posted my review on Goodreads. I can't wait to read your review. Barbara Delinsky is one of my favorite authors.

I have to agree..sometimes I see something on another blog and I think "I wish I thought of that" but I would not necessary feel ok with using it.

Good answer to the MM! I haven't really come across a circumstance that I see something on someone else's blog that I would have like to come up with myself, since I just started blogging. Feel free to check out my Musing Monday here.

I think it's unacceptable when someone uses contents/ideas without giving credit. Enjoy your new books!
