Thank you so much to the lovely Princessica of Books (edit: and Twins Turn Pages, just this morning, sorry it’s a scheduled post XD) for nominating me! I am so behind on all my book tags, I will try and slowly get through them soon!
Here are the rules:
- Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.
- Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
- Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing!
I have been a long time lurker of the blogging world. Since 2009, in fact! I had a blogspot account in those days, but I was very poor at maintaining it. That blogging stint lasted a total of 1 month, and I had 7 blog posts to show for it. Then I decided blogging wasn’t for me and was content to watch from the sidelines and just read reviews sporadically until June this year. As my real life schedule freed up, I found I had a lot of time to read books and wanted a place to document and motivate myself to conquer the TBR pile. Now that I’ve started interacting with the community, I don’t think I’ll be able to stop any time soon!
Here are my tips, but I am also a newbie at this, so take my words with a few tonnes of salt!
Be yourself & Find Your Voice are the most often quoted comments in Book Blogging Tips 101. There’s a good reason for that: the internet is filled to the brim with book blogs. Not only on WordPress, but also Tumblr, Instagram, Blogspot, Youtube, basically every corner you turn there’s a site dedicated to books. What makes your review stand out from the other thousands about the latest dystopian hit/terminal illness bestseller? The beautiful you! That is why it’s imperative you find your style and be truthful to your readers. It won’t happen overnight (and definitely hasn’t happened to me yet haha), but after writing a dozen reviews you’ll find your x-factor!Read More »
