BBAW: Day Three: What Does Book Blogging Mean To Me

Wednesday: What does book blogging mean to you?


 Hi readers and bloggers!
What a loaded question today... it's like asking what is the meaning of life.... well, let me tackle it best I can.

Book blogging started out as a way I could get books. Yeah, I was financially burdened enough to stoop that low, but I kept my promises and always turned over a review, even if the book stunk. Then as I started blogging more, I started getting comments and meeting other bloggers. We shared a mutual love of books, and some of us even have the same kind of attitude in our writing, so a sense of community started to form. Well, the social butterfly in me went wild! A network of people and we all like the same thing! Unfathomable! This was something I could have never imagined in my wildest dreams.... and yet, 3 years, and 201102 Page Views later, here we are.  Funny how things work out!

So now I admit, I am not just a book blogger anymore, but books will forever be my number one love and main topic on here. I do like lots of other things, so hence the fashion, tv, movie, music, and whatever else I can review on here. I like to put my opinion forth, good or bad, and see how you guys react. Do you agree, do you disagree, do you have a different opinion all together?? All these things help people live, work or play, and isn't that what it should be about?! I don't know... maybe now I'm rambling... but this is what you get for off the cuff. This is the "true grit" of me and my blogging.

Comments

  1. aw, I love your honesty! I think the allure of free books is definitely there for everyone. I'm so glad you are still enjoying the blogging, though!

  2. I think you should be true to yourself first and foremost. It sounds like you are doing just that here. :-)

  3. When I first started blogging, I did it to keep track of things that happened in my life. Ya know, sometimes I forget some of the little things and I figured it would be like a diary. Since then, it's taken on a life of it's own, but I love it.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
