Day 4: Why you blog
What a huge question! I guess for me it gets broken down into a few things;
Above all, I blog to talk about books in a community where I know other people also love to talk about books. Not very many of my friends are big readers and this really started out as an outlet for me to talk about different books that I love (or occasionally hate). Not only that, but since many of my friends do not know about my blog, this was a way for me to connect with people all over the world about our shared love for the written word.
Over the years though it’s been so much fun connected with publishers and authors and sharing my enthusiasm with them about their works. It is truly a wonderful feeling to read and book and then immediately be able to gush about it directly to the author or publisher. For me, it really makes me feel like my voice is being heard in this huge void of the book world.
And let’s be honest, the free books ain’t too shabby either.
