15 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 9

This challenge is hosted by April over at Good Books, Good Wine. It is a new, unique challenge to put some spark back into blogging. Day 5 challenge is to Discuss why you blog about books

There were so many times that I wanted to start a blog but never stuck with it or felt like I had enough interesting things to say about myself or my life to really keep it up. I absolutely love to read and when I discovered the world of book blogging, I thought "Maybe I should try that." I had been looking for a hobby and this became it. 

I blog about books because I love to read and discuss the books I read. However, it is so much more than that. I have found a way to connect with authors and other people who have the same passion as I do about books. I love having book related discussions with other bloggers and helping authors promote their books to other readers. 

I never imagined that it would get to be this big or time consuming but I am so glad that I found a hobby that I can do anytime and involves one of my favorite things to do. I am so glad I found a community of people that I have so much in common with. Lastly, I am so glad I have got to interact with so many amazing authors out there.


  1. I never imagined that I would find such a friendly community, it is by far the best part. I love the interaction with authors and even publishers too, it makes me feel part of the book world that I adore.

  2. I totally agree! I feel so much more part of the book community and I love that!

    It's crazy how quickly a casual hobby can turn in to an all-out obsession! I love book blogging because it gives me a greater sense of purpose.

    Thanks for following my blog, Chelsea!

  4. I know what you mean. I never thought my blog would become such a huge part of my day-to-day life. But I'm so glad it did. I've met so many awesome people who understand my book-obsession.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  5. I know right? I never thought I would become this consumed by it or that it would be this big but I am so glad that it is because it is a hobby that I really enjoy. Thanks for stopping by! :-)

  6. Exactly! One of the things I love the most is the people I have met and the friends I have made that I have so much in common with. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. The blogging community really is awesome! It's so strange for me that I never even knew this whole community existed! I also love that we can all talk books and get to interact with authors too!

  8. I know! When I started I had no idea how huge it was. I love having people to read and talk books with but I also love how we seem to have so much more in common too.


Thank you for your comment, you have truly made my day! I love reading and discussing other's thoughts and ideas. Leave a link to your blog and I would love to stop by!
