Book Blogger Hop (11)

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-for-Books where book bloggers answer the weekly question and hop around to other blogs and see what other bloggers have to say. The goal is to discover new blogs, "connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!"

This week's question is:
 "Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?"

Sometimes, but not really. There are only two reasons I wish I had picked something different. 

First is because it starts with an "S." My blog name doesn't do me any favors when it comes to alphabetical listings! 

The other reason is because when you type in "Small Review" into a search engine, you get a ton of results about all kinds of small (as in, not long) reviews for a variety of products. My blog doesn't even show up until pages and pages later. 

Otherwise I'm happy with it.

  1. I love your name! I smile every time I think "Oh, Smalls!" or "What are you doing up so late, Smalls?" What would you have been to be higher on the alphabet list? AhSoSmalls? BookieSmalls? BookReviewsBySmallPerson?

    They really should pay me for this.

  2. *grins* I'm with Logan, I often think of you about Smalls.

    I really like the name of your blog, but I hadn't thought about Listings, I suppose is a bit like roll call at school.

  3. I like your name, too. There's just something about the name that's very satisfying and, like Logan said, smile-inducing. I never thought of the alphabetical thing. Hm.

  4. Hey, I agree with you :) I think we all choose our names to suit our personalities and alot of thought goes into the process :)

  5. I never thought about listings and alphabetical order. I guess I would have the same problem.

    Anyways I like the name of your blog. It fits.

  6. There's a reason behind my silly blog name. Come see what it is. Happy Blog Hop!

  7. Just hopping by. I love your blog name. It's definitely good, and suits you.

  8. The "S" problem is exactly the reason i sometimes i had different name at my blog too XD

  9. Thanks for stopping by.. New Follower here :)

    I am glad to meet another Supernatural fan; that show is so great. I rewatch certain episodes from season one a lot, I think that the first few seasons were the best :)

  10. Picking a blog name is tough. Yours is cute. I love it and the set up is darling! Luv!! You can see my hop over here if you'd like:

  11. Happy Friday! Have a nice weekend :)

  12. I love your blog name! Easy to remember. I agree about the abc order though. :)

    Happy Hopping!

  13. I hadn't even considered alphabetical listings for blog names but I really like your name. Also I just googled "small review" and you were the third listing; possibly because google knows that I visit your blog a lot.

  14. I love your blog name and more importantly, you do. That's all that matters.

    Okay, hopping by and I'm a new follower. Have a great weekend!

  15. Hoping by to say hello! I like the name of your blog! I'm the same with the alphabetical order. I never thought of that. Hope you have a great weekend.

  18. Hi! I'd follow you, but I don't see the spot to follow using the blogspot thing like I normally see at the top of your blog. I do want to comment and say that I love your template/background. I'm hoping to either find something really cute like this later this year, or maybe pay someone to design something for me.

  19. Good answer....mine starts with an S as well. :)

    Stop by my blog for my answer if you like.

  20. I got tired of my blog's name before at the old location and attempted to merely change the name. But I realized that I wanted to change the URL too... and then I just wanted to start over at a new host. I'm happy where I am now. My name suits me, no?

  21. My blog starts with an S too. A lot of those out there! Found you through the blog hop, new follower. :)

    Here's mine!

  22. Newest follower here via the Friday Blog Hop. I am a writer of contemporary romance and a reader of almost anything! Hope you stop by and check out my blog.

  23. Logan, you are beyond adorable! You made me laugh out loud with those blog names :P Can I pay you with virtual hugs and cookies? (I’m usually up late because I work the afternoon-evening shift, plus, I’m a hopeless night owl)

    Alex, It’s funny that you think of me as Smalls because I actually respond to that more frequently than my real name. :)

    Rubita, Thanks! I love making people smile :)

    Bookworm, Oh! Good to know! Thank you :)

    Lisa Madina, I had a giveaway above the follower list, but the follower button is on the top right sidebar now :) Thank you! I made my design, but Danny from Dreamy Blog Designs makes beautiful templates if you’re interested.

    Thank you all for hopping by, for the kind words, and the new followers!

  24. Hi! Just hopping through. I like your blog name, its cute.
    Have a great weekend :)

  25. So, do you call yourself Small Review because
    A. Your reviews are short
    B. You're short
    C. It was the only thing you could think of at the time or
    D. other?

    Hopping by!


It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
