Sharing Saturday is once again upon our doorstep. Today I was looking back upon my old posts and seeing how my posts have changed since the beginning. I look at what I have added and what I have dropped in my posts. Blogging is a continual experiment. An experiment to find what works, what is fun, what doesn’t work, and what people want to read.
For me personally, I noticed a major growth in the length of my posts. Looking at my first post I wonder what I was thinking when I wrote it for it is two measly paragraphs stating that I liked the book and what it was about. Beyond that, for the first four or so months of my blogging journey all, I would write were book reviews. No tags and no personality to really show what my blog was all about. I also seemed to neglect the writing portion of my blog which is part of the reason I started Sharing Saturdays. Furthermore, I posted irregularly for the longest time and it is only recently that I have really started to post at evenly spaced intervals.
So, what am I sharing today? My blogging story? No, I am going to show you a comparison of my first book review and the one I just recently posted.

I notice the changes that I have wrought since I started this blog slightly over a year ago. I know that my blog will change as I change and I am excited to see how my blog grows and changes.
