HOW MY BLOG STARTED:
I started my blog in February of this year. I quit my job in December and after a long break (2 yrs) from reading, I decided to get back at it. I had my blog for a year but I had like 2 posts! I wanted to really start reading again and post all my reviews. So, I decided to really get into it and see what the community was like. There was so much to do with a book blog! I love the tags, memes and all the bookish things, besides just doing reviews. Quickly, I learned how amazing this community is! I’ve met some amazing people and I love that we can all discuss out love for books. I am loving it so much!
TWO PIECES OF ADVICE:
♦ Don’t worry about the numbers. I know that a lot of people obsess over this but I’m a huge fan of quality over quantity. I live by this for everything in life! I love interacting and when you interact, the numbers kind of just come. I mean, I don’t have a lot of numbers, for sure. I just hit 200 followers this month and that was a huge accomplishment for me! Don’t stress!
♦ Just have fun. I was trying to do too much at first and it started to feel like a job. I mean, it is still kind of a job but I love it. If you feel like it has become too much, take a step back. For most of us, this is a hobby and you should enjoy them!
As always, no pressure to do this!
