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!


MY NOMINATIONS:

Lili ♥ Aurora ♥ Andie

As always, no pressure to do this!

  1. Aaaw… thank you for the nomination Leslie…

    I’m glad you decided to go back at reading and started a blog. We’ve met. 🙂 🙂 I totally agree with your advice, Don’t worry about the numbers,… Truth is I don’t even know how many followers I have right now.. All I know is that i enjoy all my interactions here. Even if I’m not always around… I’m such a lazy blogger.

    thanks again.

  2. Love how you started the blog – also, congrats for having gone this far and doing really great! I also 100% agree to both pieces of advice. I’ve been blogging since February of last year and I’ve just reached 400, which still feels like a huge number to me.

    Thank you so much for the nomination, too, but I happen to have recently done this – I’ll leave it linked here: https://andreasnirvana.wordpress.com/2018/07/28/acting-like-a-wordpress-jedi-master-blogger-recognition-award/
