Is Blogging a Balancing Act? By Josephine Mattia



Thank you to Meredith Schorr for sending me a copy of Blogger Girl.  I was given this copy in exchange for an honest review.  It appealed to me because I blog as well and love Chick Lit. This is my first Meredith Schorr novel. I hope you are a fan of her writing like I am.

Synopsis: 

Book Blogger Kimberly Long is a Chick Lit fanatic, who has two problems.   One she has a crush on an associate at work.  The second problem is her high school nemesis that has become the talk of the town in blogger world with her new novel.  By day she works at a law firm, and by night she is a Book Blogger. Her passion for writing comes from reading books which she loves.  Her blog is Pastel Is The New Black.  Recently her site has earned praise from people, and is responsible for reviving the Chick Lit genre.  She seems to balance both positions quite well.  Kimberly works at the office where she has a crush on an associate.    Can the relationship grow and become all that she would like for it to?   Will she promote her nemesis’s work?  Will she make peace with her past? 

My Thoughts:

As a Book Lover, I thought this novel was okay.  The plot was not very interesting to me.   Her writing is flawless, and captures the essence of the story. I loved how the author gave a great portrayal of what being a blogger is all about.  As someone who writes for this blog I can appreciate the hard work.  Being a blogger can include some fun along the way.  It is not an easy job! 

To shape up my experience as a Blogger, has been a positive one with lessons learned among the way. When I first started, it became an outlet for sharing my passion for music.   I did not have the desire to have many followers or to become well known. If I chose fame what would be the point? The challenging part is being able to have a level of self-discipline at all times in my posts. Whether it’s a review or a topic similar to your interest, the experience can be rewarding. Nevertheless being a blogger has been enjoyable, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

 I look forward to reading her next novel.  There will be a sequel to this story!

Rating: 4/5
