My Blogging Story

I just started my blog in June 2015, and I’ve never blogged before. Actually the origin of my blog is kind of funny, it started as a school assignment!! I’m in graduate school to get my library degree and my YA Resources class required us to read 20 YA books and review them online by creating a blog or wiki. I decided to give blogging a try. Pretty much immediately fell in love with this social media type and the amazing community of fellow readers and book lovers I’ve been able to meet. So I decided to keep the blog going and to include not just YA but also talk about the New Adult and Adult books I read as well. My favorite part of blogging is getting to reflect on what I’ve read by reviewing it, but more importantly the social nature of the blogosphere. There are so many great book bloggers out there that I have been able to “meet” and talk to, and that has been awesome. And, I’ve gotten fabulous book recommendations for books I never otherwise would have heard of! Also, publishers are agreeing to send me ARCs of books I otherwise would have bought anyway. I mean, really, for a book lover, can life get any better?

My Advice

Well I suppose it depends on what your reason for blogging. If you want to talk about the books you read, then my advice is… just do that as often as you like! If your goal is to meet other book bloggers and talk about books, then I recommend finding some popular tags and initially search those tags regularly to find other book bloggers. If your goal is to get a large amount of followers… then post regularly, post about popular or anticipated books, and read, comment, like, and follow lots and lots of other bloggers. And be patient, it doesn’t happen over night. Most of all, though I just recommend you enjoy your blogging experience in any way that makes you happy. This is a community and its for fun, so you should just enjoy the ride!
