Let’s Talk Bookish #1: Why Do You Blog

It’s the end of January, can you believe it? Time flies by super quickly when you’re in once again another lockdown! Luckily, with some more free time, I’ve managed to slightly update my blog and take care of its visual side. I’m really happy to see me gaining new skills and expanding my blog, so that’s a very positive thing in my life. I’ve also been reading some pretty amazing books, watching new releases on Netflix, admiring the snowfall, and going to almost non-existent uni!

This week, I’ve decided to take part in Let’s Talk Bookish. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme hosted by Rukky at Eternity Books and Dani atΒ Literary Lion where the girls and the participants discuss certain topics, share their opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts. This week’s topic is a question, why do you blog? I thought it would be very interesting to share my views on that with you!

I’m a fairly new blogger, having started in August 2020.

I’ve been reading books for a very very long time. I’ve always likes stories of all sorts, whether it’s books, films, shows, music. And I’ve always had a lot to say about these things, but since I’m an introvert, it’s not easy to share my thoughts with others! Goodreads wasn’t enough for me, so I decided to create a place where I could talk about my favourite things.

I thought at first that blogging has turned into a more ancient activity since everyone is either an influencer on Instagram or a TikToker. But luckily enough, this is not the case at all. Blogging is super fun in its own way too, and you can combine traditional blogging with other social media-posting opportunities too! Everyone can find something they’re good at and something they enjoy doing, so that’s pretty amazing.

Besides, there is something exciting about blogging too. I remember one friend from school who had a book blog, and she was always telling me how much she loves working on her page, collaborating with publishers, writing posts and meeting other bloggers online. I guess she was a small inspiration of mine and I do understand what she meant!

Blogging also gives me some more motivation to read. I can explore more books I want to read and share my opinions about them, I can finally dive into books I’ve always found intriguing, and I can simply build up my book taste while at the same time broadening my horizons! It’s all just advantages for me πŸ˜‰

Do you agree with me? Why do you blog? Let me know in the comments! πŸ™‚

  1. I agree that although blogging seems almost obsolete (or so I thought before I started), I really enjoy blogging because I prefer writing over social media, and I find it really rewarding to write long posts! And you make a good point that many people integrate social media into their blog.

    1. There is something different about writing isn’t it 😍 I do like Instagram for example and I can see myself opening a bookstagram in the future. So totally, social media can be an advantage as well!

  2. I agree so much with how blogging became my motivation to read more. Haha, I started blogging around last year as well, because I sorta needed an outlet to really express my thoughts on the books I’ve read over the quarantine in my country. While, I did write reviews on Goodreads, I felt like it wasn’t enough, and so, I tried making my own blog. And welp, here I am haha.

  3. You’ve really taken off since starting this blog! I think we both started around the same time. I love the community here on wordpress, AND I’m very happy I met you. You make great content and your opinions/thoughts on books are always interesting to read ❀
