HOW MY BLOG STARTED

I had been thinking for a while that I wanted to join the book community but I wasn’t sure how to go about it. I at first thought about starting a Bookstagram but quickly realized that that wasn’t for me. I don’t have the patience or the photography skills needed for Bookstagram.Β My friend Miranda and I were talking one night about how I could get involved in the book community and she told me that I would be really great writing reviews for a blog. She told me my passion was there and by the way I talk to her about the books I read she knew this would be the best route for me to go. A few months before I had this talk with Miranda, my boyfriend Sal told me the same thing. At that point I was too intimidated to start a blog. Well once Miranda instilled the confidence in me that I would be a good reviewer/blogger, I took the jump. Now, I know nothing about creating a blog and thank goodness my boyfriend was willing to help me create this blog. He is a genius with computers and had told me a few months back that he would help me setup a blog if I ever wanted to. So here I am today, finally a part of the book community and loving every minute of it. Without Miranda and Sal there would be no blog. I owe them everything. Thanks guys! Love you!

MY ADVICE

  1. Make friends! Don’t be shy! Put yourself out there and interact with other bloggers by liking and commenting on their blogs. I have made a great group of friends through twitter and I just love the thought that I have a group of people I can talk to about books.
  2. It’s your blog. Write about what YOU want, not what everybody else says you should. I keep my blog centered about things I want to write about and I think that’s key. Having a blog should be a hobby not a chore. You should enjoy what you’re writing about and not worrying about what other people are doing or what they think. As long as you enjoy what you are writing about, that’s all that matters.

  1. Loved your story! I think we all were at some point intimidated by the idea of having a blog. It does sound like a daunting task. But, once you are in it, you know that it’s worth the trouble!

    Also, good and important advice! Friends are so important in this community and I too have made some great friends here (including you, ofc) 😘

  2. Aw, thank you so much Danielle! You’ve made my day! Great post too, it was interesting to see how you came to be a blogger and also had some great advice – it’s so easy to feel pressure to write what you think others want instead of what you want to write!

  3. Congrats on the award and thanks so muchhh for nominating me! 😍 I totally agree that bookstagram is hard. I tried a bit and failed miserably πŸ˜‚ and your advice is great! The moment the blog becomes a chore it isn’t the point anymore… and the people from the community are great ❀
