How My Blog Started:
While I was in college, I didn’t have much time to myself to read what I chose since I was taking a lot of English and Film History/Criticism classes that involved a ton of reading, but I was following several book blogs. That meant that my TBR list was getting longer and longer. I was also taking a creative writing class in my last semester and one of our assignments for the semester was to keep a blog where we would write our thoughts on the short stories we were reading for class. That’s when I realized that it was a nice outlet of sorts to keep my book thoughts, so a few years after college, I decided to start my own blog.
Advice for New Bloggers:
Keep up with your blog. This is something I’m still working on between work and oftentimes being less than motivated to put myself out there, but there are a lot of pros to having a book blog. Just remember that it’s yours and you don’t have to update it every day or every week if it’s not what you want to do.
Communicate. Receiving comments from other people is such a positive experience. It will help others find you and you will make friends.
I didn’t choose 10 people to tag this time, but I did choose a few people who recently followed me that I began following.
Thanks again to Jen for nominating me for this. It was nice to remember and write about why I started this blog.
