About me…

Well, for starters, the name Shimminy Cricket is a play on Jiminy Cricket. I was given the name because friends would come to me for advise, I was told I acted as their conscious, and alas the name arose.

And it has a somewhat magical feel to is so I decided to use it for the name of my blog.

This blog was created because I am an avid reader, a book-a-holic if you will. It was suggested to me that as a fun way to keep track of the books I read I should right reviews, and possibly make something out of it along the way.

I thought it would be fun to expand this beyond just a book blog though, and so I shall be attempting to share my poetry and photography work as well, and possibly some philosophy discussions, seeing on how things go.

I hope that people who come across Shimminy Cricket’s Corner will find something that either helps them or inspires them, whether it be to read a book after reading a review, or to go out on their own photography adventure, write their own poetry or chase their dreams in some other way.

I am completely open to suggestions if people want certain books reviewed or a certain theme for a photography project or piece of poetry or whatever may some to mind. In fact, suggestions are highly welcomed and encouraged!!

This is going to be quite the adventure and I look forward to sharing this adventure with you!
