The Blogger Recognition Award

I was nominated for The Blogger Recognition Award by Rebecca from Rebecca Reads and Sheila from She’s Going Book Crazy for this tag. Thank you both!

How My Blog Began

I began blogging at the beginning of March in 2015. I actually started blogging at my dad’s recommendation. He’d been suggesting it for over a year before I finally gained the courage to start my own blog. I was reading over 100 books a year at that time (oh, how nice it was to be in high school and have the time to do this) and my dad thought I should write reviews of what I was reading. I had a twitter and tumblr account already where I was plugged into the book community, but I was nervous at first about sharing my writing and opinions, which is why it took me so long to finally take the leap. But I did and here I am over two years later!

Advice for New Bloggers

First, don’t stress about blogging! If you’re doing this for the right reasons, it should be a fun outlet for you to discuss books with others. Don’t worry about posting if you’re away on a trip or stressed about school, work, or life in general. Trust me, everybody understands and won’t hold it against you.

Second, be careful about what you request when you start to request ARCs (off of NetGalley or from the publisher directly). It’ll save you a lot of time and energy if you only request books you actually want to read or think you might like. Also remember to be thankful for the books you receive as ARCs are not a right.
