This is honestly a long story that goes back maybe four years ago, but I used to post a lot on Bookstagram and saw that some people posted reviews. I wanted to join in on the fun, so I started by just reviewing things on Instagram, and then eventually switched to Blogger. I was on Blogger posting reviews for maybe two years before switching to WordPress. Now finally, we are here! The switch to WordPress was the best decision I could’ve made! I’m having so much more fun blogging and have met so many amazing blogging friends! Love all of you! ❤
(So I actually wrote this post a little while ago but decided not to post it because I didn’t think I had anything new to say. But, after three more nominations… I guess SOMEONE cares what I think XD) (So all of this has been said before but enjoy anyway!)
TWITTER! I never made a Twitter until I started blogging but it’s SUCH a great way to interact with other bloggers and meet people (including authors)! I use it a lot to tweet about whatever I’m reading and links whenever I post. There’s also just a lot of fun threads and Twitter chats– where you can learn about many new books and meet lots of bloggers– it’s fun to be had by all!
INTERACT! Find other bloggers and read/comment on their posts! It’s a great way to meet blogging buddies and you can have some fun discussions! The down side is that your TBR might just start overflowing from all the recommendations but that’s fine! (Who needs a life when you’ve got reading right?) Blogging is so much more fun with friends so find a friend so you can encourage each other throughout your blogging adventures!
