Hello, again! I know it’s been a while, but I’m back!
So, today I’ve decided to post about why I started this blog. Hm… Let’s go for a trip down memory lane…
Okay. Now that I’ve gone down memory lane in my head, here’s why I began this book blog:
1. I’d always loved books. Even in elementary school, I was that kid who hoarded books in her book cubby so no one else would take them and I could read them whenever I wanted to. Honestly, that was kind of pointless because I would save some books I really wanted to read for so long that I would forget about them (and since they were in my cubby, no one else got to enjoy them)…
2. This one’s a bit more complicated. Before I discovered the booktube and book blogging worlds, I’d kind of been stuck in my own bookish world. Of course, I could have talked about books with my friends, but one friend didn’t have the same reading tastes as I did and the other one… Well, once you got my other friend to start talking, she would never stop. I wouldn’t have much time to interject with my own thoughts.
Anyway. One day I got the idea to search up book recommendations on YouTube, and lo and behold, I was introduced to the world of booktubing! So, I found many booktubers I liked, and that’s when I felt inspired to start my own channel. But there was one issue. I didn’t have the equipment. And I’m also quite socially awkward so I cannot imagine what would have happened if I got in front of a camera.
That is why I decided to become a book blogger. I get to post constantly about my love for books without the complicated equipment and social anxiety.
I am glad I made the decision to become a book blogger. I love it. I think of my blog as a little home to discuss books and book related things. 🙂
3. Is it odd that I enjoy typing? It’s a win-win situation. I get to talk about books on my blog all the time and I don’t hate typing.
Plus, I adore designing layouts. Choosing the right colors, the right images, and the best theme fit for my blog was quite entertaining, and sometimes (if you’ve been here a while, then you know what I mean) I change my blog layout on a whim just because I feel like it (or I’m bored).
Thanks for reading! See you soon in my next post!
