ABOUT ME & THE BLOG
Hello and welcome to Quoth the Writer Book Reviews & More!
My name is Lisa Hodorovych, I am the owner and writer of this blog. I would like to tell you more about it and about myself, but before I do, I want to say, this is many years in the making. I am so excited and so blessed to be doing this. I want to sincerely thank you for checking out my site. I hope you enjoy the content I will be producing for you each week.
Now, I'm sure the question on your mind right now is...
"What is this blog about?"
I'm sure you're now wondering why I started this blog and why the different extremes in topics. To be honest, several years ago I wanted to start a blog because I love to write and I love researching, but I didn't know what to publish. At first, I had a wrestling blog back in 2008, 2009 (I think) because I loved watching wrestling, especially WWE. Then I was thinking about doing a health/fitness blog, but noticed everybody else was doing that.
After much deliberation - and a lot of research - I finally decided on book reviews because I know reviews are important to every author. I wanted to be able to help out my fellow authors by sharing their work with the world. I mean knowing that someone took the time to read our work and write their opinion about it is probably the best payment out there for us (other than the royalty checks, of course). However, I didn't want to do just book reviews. I wanted to "broaden my palette" and give my readers options.
In July 2019, Quoth the Writer Book Reviews & More was born with book reviews, movie reviews, and restaurant reviews.
Unfortunately, this format quickly changed as I wasn't keeping up with the movie reviews and I felt they weren't my strongest articles I was producing. I needed a replacement. Thankfully, it didn't take me long to realize I should discuss my favorite movie franchise, Godzilla, so "Let's Talk Godzilla" was born. At the same time, I started my tea drinking journey to explore different teas and different brands, so I decided to add that to my blog as well. By the end of 2019, going into 2020, my blog got its first revamp.
Then Covid-19 hit in March of 2020 and going out to restaurants became a thing of the past. I was keeping up with my book reviews, author interviews, discussions on tea and on Godzilla, but my restaurant reviews slipped. Again, I felt it wasn't my strong suit anyway, so now with its second (and hopefully final) revamp, you are seeing the final product of Quoth the Writer Book Reviews & More. (I also changed the hosting website and domain name as I was unhappy with its original "home".)
To learn more about each, please visit their respective pages.
Lastly, I'm sure the final question you have is...
"Who are you?"
Again, my name is Lisa Hodorovych. I am a Jersey-girl, born and raised. I am a proud Capricorn as well, even though I can’t stand the cold and it always snows on my birthday. Besides having this blog, I am also a published author (my first book debuted in September of 2020) and I own a publication production company called Quoth the Writer, L.L.C. The services I offer range from writing to editing and proofreading to marketing and formatting. To learn more about my business and my books, click here.
When I am not working, I am either spending time with my family, my friends, or my husband. I love to watch movies. I love to read books. I love to learn as much as I can about my craft (because there is always something new to learn). I am a huge Godzilla fan, as I stated earlier, and I love baseball. What's funny is I used to watch baseball when I was little, but then stopped for the longest time. Then when I met my husband, he refueled my love for it. (LET'S GO YANKEES!)
