I think most of my random musings of late have been moaning about something or other. I’m sure I’ll do more whining in the future but I think I want to focus on why I blog for today … it’s been one of those weeks 🙂
I started blogging in 2011 because I wanted to share my love of books. I regularly used Smart Bitches for recommendations and I wanted to join in the community. No matter what, I have never regretted my decision although there have been times when I find it less than enjoyable.
So what do I love….
1. Getting a note from someone to say they picked up a book because of a review I wrote and they loved it. Honestly, this is the main reason I started the whole blog and I adore it when it happens.
2. Chatting books on the blog or twitter. People know me as a book blogger on twitter so they talk books with me and I LOVE books… these conversations make me happy
3. Discovering a new author because of a request/recommendation/tweeted deal. Here in the UK, we don’t have the same type of eBook market that the US do. There isn’t the publicity or the community for the romance genre but I can find all that I need online. There are some authors I would never have discovered if I hadn’t had been part of the online book community and they include authors whose books that are constant rereads. The romance community has a credit card bill to answer for…. 🙂
So, what do you love about this little community?
