How It All Began…
I started this blog this summer when I was reading so many great books. I didn’t really feel like I had somebody who I could share my thoughts with. So I looked around and there was the beautiful blogosphere, full of book lovers and fanboys and fangirls and I decided I wanted to be part of it. So I started writing reviews, slaved over my blog layout haha and yeah, that was a couple of months ago. To all those who don’t have their own blog, go ahead and start one. The bookish community is such a wonderful place to fangirl around with others and it makes your TBR pile that much higher haha
(1) Comment, ask questions. Comments are a big part of blogging and I always appreciate comments! Because when you like something on a blog, the blogger can’t really tell if you’ve actually read what they wrote. Ask a question and start conversations and you’ll have a few new bookish friends in the community! I love commenting on other people’s blogs but I had a few problems, sometimes comments would be in the spam, so if you’re actually reading this, please check your notifications and spam. I’m trying to fix this ASAP but support is kind of slow these days.
(2) Don’t freak out if reviews get the least attention. My reviews usually get the least hits and comments. At first, I thought my reviews were just boring or something, but after some time I realized that that is the case with all book blogs (many have complained about it, too haha). Here’s the thing: all of us have different preferences and genres they like. If you talk about something bookish in general, more people can relate to your content than with a review. Don’t freak out about it. But don’t start using too many memes and forget about reviewing books either 😉
