Now, back to me and my award πŸ˜€Β 

Blogger-Recognition-Award

 

RULES:

  • Write a post to show your award
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Give advice to new bloggers
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to

 

ORIGIN STORY:

As most of you know I have a small online shop where I sell books and bookish accessories. But just having an online shop wasn’t enough for my bookish needs. I needed to interact with other book lovers, share my passion for reading. So a blog just seemed like a good idea. I could meet other book-crazy people, make new friends and get the word out about my shop.

I started this blog about 2 months ago and I don’t regret it, not for a moment! Even though the timing could have been a bit better, it gave me something fun and creative to do (while I procrastinate in between essays, coursework, exams, etc… ) πŸ˜›

I have met so many great people through this blog, including the lovely Chloe from (Over)analysing Literature who nominated me for this award πŸ™‚ And I think that just by talking about books and sharing my thoughts with people who have a similar interest, my love for reading has just grown. I have been reading a lot more since I’ve started this blog πŸ™‚

 

ADVICE:

Well, I’m not sure what to say really, because I still consider myself a newbie in the blogsphere. This “baby” is only 2 months old, people! Haha! I’m not sure I qualify as a proper blogger yet. Why don’t you ask me again in a year or so?

Hooooowever, if you’re thinking about starting a blog my advice would be “Go for it”. It doesn’t matter what you want to write about. You could have a blog exclusively about baby carrots, or the old debate about nurture versus nature, or you could just write about whatever comes to mind (Mmm… cake!), it doesn’t really matter. You’ll always find someone with a similar interest.

One important thing I have learned in my vast (2 months) experience is that writing is good for the soul. So get to it!

    I think I speak for everyone when I say no one else regrets you starting a blog, either! πŸ™‚ I must say that I’ve also come to love reading even more through blogging. It’s just a great thing.

    Also, I want to say that, while your blog may be only 2 months old, it certainly doesn’t read as the blog of a newbie. I’m sure you’ve got lots of great advice to give. πŸ™‚
