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.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
