How did I start my blog?
I feel like I’ve told a watered down version of this story? So today you all shall get the full one 🙂 .
When I first started reading (back when I was 14) I always wanted to discuss and gush or even rant about books. Family was a no-no, dad is overly religious and thinks reading anything but the bible is demonic and though mom tries to be interested, her attention span is short… and older siblings don’t care. But then, I’d see these bloggers and think I’m not creative enough, articulate enough, bold enough to do this. So for years, I sat in the background, from the outside looking in. Not even posting on twitter (I think I mentioned my issues with social media). Finally, September 2017 came, I’m home-schooled sitting at home all day everyday, no hobbies and a whole lot of books I want to talk about. And I think, why not? Nobody will see it. But that doesn’t matter. I need to be bold for once. And here I am. Being bold in a small, yet mighty way
at least for me 🙂 .
Two pieces of advice for bloggers
I always have my do it for yourself and only yourself motive, but I guess you should also be consistent. Don’t give up. I feel this is one of the nicest communities I’ve been in and everyone is so helpful. Blogging takes up a lot of your time, so time management is also a big must.
