Okay, the past year would’ve (honestly) been pretty different without blogging. I hope it’s the same for you guys! Today I just wanted to have a quick discussion on why I choose to blog.
My younger sister (Ava) has a passion for baking, and last summer my mom suggested she start a website for selling cupcakes to friends. Ava began designing her website, and I thought that it would be literally the coolest thing ever, to have my own little corner of the internet.
I simply wanted to make a website; at that moment I had no intent for the content, I just wanted to be involved with the technology, I suppose. My mom told me I should create a reading blog, and so it was decided. It has officially been ten months of consistent blogging, already! Crazily enough, while stepping into the blogosphere I had absolutely no idea that book blogging was such a huge thing!
Reading is and always has been adventure, and thrill, and amusement for me (It’s tempting to say life, but that’s personally a step to far for me hehe). When I’m not blogging about books, you can find me reading them 99% of the time.
When I first designed my blog, the structure I chose made it an very unattractive looking blog, but to be honest, I had no history in graphic designs or basically anything technological, so I can’t really blame myself that much. It took me SIX MONTHS to finally figure out what I had to do in order to gain traffic. Boy did it feel a lot better to look at my stats a month later!
Speaking of which…maybe this is a huge time cram, but I’m hoping for 500 followers by summer vacation?! I think I believe it’s possible, but on another note, to all my current followers, thank you so much (and I really mean it)!! The mornings I turn on my phone to a new follower, I get ridiculously excited. Yes, even after 340 follow notifications, trust me, I still do a little victory dance for every new follower. That’s me weird way of saying I really appreciate it, so thank you to all my readers :))
WHY DO YOU BLOG?
