The Story of how my blog started
Around the time I started my YouTube channel I decided I wanted to do video reviews. After attempting quite a few I realized reviewing books on camera just wasn’t my thing. I decided then to try my hand at written reviews, grade school style lol. After attempting quite a few I realized I wasn’t so bad and decided maybe a blog was more my speed for book reviews. I signed up for Netgalley got my first approval, and here I am (quite backed up on review books lol). So yes I started my blog strictly for book reviews, and it is now becoming a place of bookish memes, book tags, and links to my YouTube videos. 🙂
My Advice to new bloggers:
1. Get to know other bloggers! I think this is important because one, you can make so many new friends with similar interests as you which is always fun. And two us bloggers are all in the same boat at first, we all have questions that others can help with and just want a happy space to be us.
2. Be Unapologetically you! This is your blog, your space, to do what you want. It always nice to take advice from others, but don’t base all your blog posts around what they say. People who follow you genuinely want to support you and what you write about!
15 is a lot of other blogs to tag, so I want to apologize in advance if you have already done this tag and I’ve tagged you. (Also I’m doing this post extremely in advance due to readathons and vacation.)
