How this blog was started....

There wasn't any specific event that triggered me making this blog. It was more just me sitting in my room, staring at my bookcase and saying "you know what? it would be freakin cool to have a blog." And here we are. I started my blog the day after that and now it is just a challenge to see how long I can keep it. I love blogging because I can articulate clearly how I feel about a book and I get to communicate with so many amazing bloggers (see above). You are all amazing and make blogging so much fun!!!

Advice to other bloggers....

1. Do not be scared to say what you want. There have been a few times when I am writing a review and I kind of sugar coat what I mean. If you want to have a powerful review, just go for it.
2. Interact with the community. There are so many sites that you can meet other bloggers or you can just comment on other posts and see what happens.
3. Join Goodreads.  Goodreads is life.
4. Keep to your schedule. For example, I write posts every Saturday and post them on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Saturdays. It keeps me organized so I know exactly when I am doing things.
