Bloggiesta Mini-Challenge: The B-Word: Branding

Hey Everyone! Okay, I've completed my first mini-challenge of the weekend. Hosted by Amanda at On a Book Bender this challenge is about The B-Word: Branding.

Here are my answers to the questions:

Your name:

  1. How well does your blog name reflect what your blog is about? Ugh... that's another story. Needless to say, I didn't put much thought into it. That's something I'd like to change, but for now I'm sticking with it! 
  2. Create a tagline. Because I knew I needed a better blog name, shortly after starting my blog I added "so much to read!" 
  3. Look at the name you use to leave comments. Change it to reflect your brand. This is something I just change because of this mini-challenge. I changed to Candy @ So little time.... 

Your appearance:
  1. Do you have the same profile picture on all social networks (including your blog)? I did, but I recently changed my twitter pic. So, now it's different. :/
  2. Is the picture of you or an avatar? It’s of me. 

Your personality (or “feel”)
  1. What do people expect from YOUR blog? I think, for the most part, they expect it to be about books. The interesting thing I have found is that most of my follower are Janeites and if I post anything not relating to Jane Austen I don’t get much traffic. This is something I want to change. I do read and review other types of books. 

  1. Look at your Twitter timeline. What’s the ratio between interacting with people and self-promoting tweets? I try to keep it balanced, but I know sometimes it can be a little heavy with self-promoting. Something to work on.
  2. Write a social media update about your latest post (or your latest FAVORITE post) that teases and gives people a reason to click through. This one I’m not good at and I really need to work on. Here's the one I did for this challenge: 
Soak in a hot tub & read a good book w/ this pkg! So little time...: Snow Fence Road by @ PhyllisRing

There you have it! If you want to do this challenge, go to On a Book Bender and for the rest of the Mini-Challenges head to Bloggiesta

As always, any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you! 


  1. Remember that what people expect from your blog also includes the personality that comes through in your blog! Not just the types of things you post. :)

  2. Hmmm...something to think about. I think my personality does come through, at least I hope so. Thank you, Amanda! I enjoyed this challenge!

  3. Good for you, Candy! That's awesome that you participate in these events and work on your blog! I have a long list of maintenance stuff, policy-rewording, etc. I need to accomplish! But every week reading and reviewing takes precedence!

    1. Hey Meredith! Participating in the bloggiesta is a great motivator to get that stuff done. Plus, I learn a lot of technical stuff too! The next one is in March, you should check it out.
