My Journey Through Blogging:
Blogging has sort of been an on and off thing for me. I had a crappy blog with something like one paragraph reviews on blogger. I had started the blog because my dad asked me to start writing review. I wrote like 4 or 5 reviews and then quit. I think I did this like once or twice.
Then last year in September or so, I decided to pick up blogging. I was kinda over tumblr and wanted to still blog somewhere else. At first it was going to be a place to post my edits and have general rantings. But after think for a while, I thought why not make it a book blog and I did. I didn’t write my first review (that actually was posted) until a month or so later.
I started follow authors on my personal/fandom twitter. Then some blogger. I realized after a while that I was probably spamming my friends/followers with my giveaways so I started my bookish twitter and that’s when I really got into the blogging world and blogging became more of a permanent thing for me. And I’m very glad I did. This is an awesome world and I’ve meet so many cool people. 😀
One piece of advice I have for new blogger (even though I’m still kinda a new blogger myself), is to schedule posts. It makes it so much easier. This way you can have deadline for yourself and posts go up regularly on your blog this way.
Another piece of advice I have for new bloggers, is make a separate email for your bookish stuff. It’s nice to have it that way and this way you can keep your rl separate from the online world. As well as protect yourself on the online world, if you have chosen to use another name online.
