Yayyyy as of today I have been blogging for 1 YEAR! WHAT?! NO WAY? I know, it's so surreal!! I just wanted to take a bit of time to let you know why I started blogging and how much fun I've had all year :)
I've always been a big reader, choosing to spend more time with my books at home than out with friends, and I've never had a lot of bookish friends with whom I can sit around and chat about great reads. So when I found Goodreads back in 2010 I was so thrilled! An entire community of bookish people who WANT to sit around and chat about books! I spent a lot of time on the site, chatting with fellow readers and participating in the discussion posts about different books, but when I discovered there was actually a blogging community I got really excited! I started following a few bloggers and realized that these awesome people were interacting with their readers and sharing their opinions about some really great books! Finally, I gathered up the energy to start my own :)
So, March 11, 2011 I opened up a Blogger account and added my first review! Albeit, my first few reviews were just copied from Goodreads. Eventually I found my groove and started interacting with other bloggers and participating in memes and other fun bookish things. I opened a Twitter account for my blog and started chatting with people on a daily basis. I have to say, starting my blog has been one of the best things I've done. I still don't have many friends who are as into reading and the general book community as I am, and being able to express my thoughts about books and squeeling over exciting new releases and events has been an amazing experience. I really hope I'll be able to keep up blogging for a long time, I have so much fun chatting about books with my lovely blogger friends and I'm so glad that I've met so many amazing people :)
