Sooo…the story of my blog
To be honest, there isn’t much of a story to my blog. I love reading books and ranting about my opinions on them to anyone who will listen, so why not? There are always plenty of people looking for an opinion or advice on what books to read, so I thought ‘Hey, let’s try helping them!’
I started this blog only a couple of months ago, mainly to get some experience with writing and developing my own style, so not much has happened yet, but I do love it!
My advice to new bloggers:
-Nothing has to be perfect. Everything takes time and patience! I’ve been here two months and yeah, none of my posts have been overwhelmingly popular but that’s okay.
-Try to develop your own style of posts and writing voice, rather than trying to copy someone elses. Let the words come naturally (and try not to use an online thesaurus).
-Pictures are fun! Add pictures to your posts!
I don’t know loads of people on this site, but these are the ones who pop up often and who I like reading:
1) The Critiquing Chemist
2) Young Adult Lit Reviews
3) Hit or Miss Books
5) Words Read and Written
6) Pretty Books
7) Carlie Noël Sorosiak
