Blogger of the week

This week’s blogger of the week is Julian Froment. Julian is one of my favourite bloggers. He shares my love of reading and classic literature and always has an interesting and thoughtful perspective on what he reads. He is not a psychotic blog poster like I am so, if you follow him you will get only no nonsense posts when he actually has something important to say. (So sorry all of you…really.)

Also, I owe Julian for listening to me prattle on senselessly about what I am reading. He is a good listener as well. Go drop him a line and say hello. Here is his site: http://julianfroment.wordpress.com/

*An Unfortunate but apparently necessary side note. I have had a couple of emails now where relatively new bloggers are asking if they can be featured on Readful Things Blogger of the Week. While I would love to accommodate everyone’s wish, I feel I must clarify how this all works. I choose the bloggers that I enjoy interacting with and think have something valuable to offer the community. I generally don’t pick blogs that have only been around for a month or so as there isn’t much content and I haven’t gotten an overall view of what they intend to feature (with rare exceptions.) This blogger of the week bit is just my way of saying hey–look at that blog! So, for anyone who has not figured out that I am a prat and also stubborn and set in my ways–here is the break down.

If I choose you, you have been selected. If I don’t, emailing me will do no good. My blog=my choice. For the person who recently got mad at me for turning you down as blogger of the week–Why not start your own blogger of the week? I will email you and apply. πŸ™‚

  1. I can’t even imagine having the “cheek” to ask. WTF have some people bought into the desperate “build the followers no matter the method” pap that is being ladled out by the paid consultants. I’m sorry but this authorship deal is a matter of craft and learning. There are very few lasting shortcuts. Is there a site that you can go and pay someone for followers like on Twitter??? Maybe they can go there.

  2. Thank you so much for the honour Ionia. For the record I love listening to you prattle on (your words, not mine). When you are into the same things it isn’t a chore to listen (and discuss), but a pleasure. Thank you once again, and please feel free to talk to me about the books you are reading whenever you like. I have to agree with Charles about the use of the word ‘prat’, great word πŸ™‚

  3. I prefer the fact that you only feature blogs you enjoy, rather than people asking. I like your blog, and I’ve found a few great ones via your reblogging and stuff. Always better when something comes from the heart, rather than thinking you’re doing it just because you’ve been asked.

      1. Unfortunately, I am around every day, so it looks like a cloudy day for you every day. I guess I could stop commenting, but then you would have to go to other sources for you comment crack. 😦

  4. Reblogged this on Julian Froment's Blog and commented:
    I was amazed to see that Ionia had picked me as her blogger of the week. This is such an honour and I am so grateful and proud. I just had to reblog this, not that I have ever reblogged anything so this could may or may not work. Thanks again Ionia.

  6. Bahahaha! That is hilarious! *wipes tears from eyes*. Some people, hey? I can’t believe they got mad at you. I think some people think it’s all about them! It’s your blog for goodness sake!

  7. That’s a brilliant idea. They could do their own ‘blogger of the week’ post and then write about themselves. That’d be something worth reading (insert sarcasm here)!
