Today is the final day of the fantastic Get Up Offa That Slump: Blogging Extravaganza hosted by Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf. Thank you so much for the great extravaganza, Rachel!
Today’s prompt is… Why do you blog? What makes blogging worth it? Why do you love it?
I started this blog because I wanted to share my thoughts about the books I read. And that’s still a big part of why I blog. I enjoy sharing a piece of me with my readers and learning more about myself as a reader. This extravaganza has helped me see that I can go beyond reviews and weekly linkups. I can share my thoughts about literary tourist sites, why I love reading, favorite bookish habits and more. It’s fun to have an audience to share it all with!
I love getting to know fellow bloggers. It’s so fun to have a community where we all are bookworms and can appreciate our excitement, love, and obsession for books! Always great to find fellow nerds out here in the blogging world. I am constantly amazed at how big this book blogging community is. I love it!
You amazing bloggers have gotten me excited about all sorts of new books from the Lunar Chronicles to The Martian and plenty in between. I love reading your reviews and finding my next great read! Without blogging, I would miss out on a lot of amazing books (and friendships!).
Most of all, blogging keeps me excited about reading. Since I started blogging, I have read more and planned to read me (my TBR is huge!). I’m always figuring out what I will read next. And I’m reading a lot. Mygoals for reading have grown bigger and bigger. I am excited about tackling the biggest classics and the newest fantasy series because I get to blog about them.
That’s what makes me happiest and why I love blogging most–I love books and I love reading. 🙂
Why do you blog? Why do you love it?
