Literary Blog Directory is Active!

Tiny Library


The literary blog directory is now open!
Click on the picture above to be taken to the directory, where you can find lots of lovely blogs and the sign-up sheet if you want to be added to the list.

This has been a learning curve for me already.  I've had a few YA blogs and blogs about children's books wanting to sign up, which surprised me because it is a directory for literary fiction and contemporary adult fiction.  To keep it that way, I'm only adding blogs that meet this criteria.  Sorry if you added your details but are not in the directory, it's nothing personal about you or your blog, it's just that you don't fit with what the directory is about.

There are 15 blogs listed already, which I'm amazed at.  I'm pleased that there is a good mix of blogs I was already following and new blogs.  Looking at all your favourite literary book choices has made me realise how much there is out there I still want to read!  I'm also glad that I included the 'about' section rather than making it a straightforward list of links, it's much more interesting to look at because of it.

If you are in the directory, please check that you are happy with your entry and then grab the button from the right hand side of my blog.  If you follow any new blogs because of the directory, let them know about it.  

All publicity posts and comments very much appreciated.

  3. It looks great. Could you change a spelling error in my blog directory. It should be novels not novesl. Good thing I'm a history teacher and not an English teacher.
    :) Thank you.

  11. Have been following your progress on this, really great idea :) I'm not actually sure if I fit the criteria as I review such a messy pile of everything, so won't be signing up, but am really happy to see more focus on other literature than just YA :)
