Blog introducion posts are rarely interesting, and as I can’t think of a way to do this properly I’m going to keep it short and sweet.
Why a new blog?
I’ve been meaning to get back into blogging for a while now, and since I’m on ‘holidays’ I thought now was as good a time as any.
Why ‘Firebreathing Monsters’?
There are several reasons for the title of my blog, the simplest of which being that it was hard to find another name which hadn’t already been taken, and there was an ad on the TV which had the words as part of a song.
I had also just finished reading ‘Inheritance’ when I decided to set up my blog, and Paolini’s dragon-filled work is fairly typical of the type of genre-based book I tend to read.
Finally, I may get a little fired-up myself if I come across something I really don’t like.
What is the blog about?
As opposed to some friends of mine who have separate blogs for everything, this blog is going to cover a range of things: reading lists, book reviews, writing news, film reviews, cooking successes and failures, library news (as I am studying to be a library person), and the occassional meme, funny post or personal reflection.
Well, that’s it from me, next time there’ll be a proper post. Promise.
