Top Ten Reasons I Love To Blog
Hello bookworms! Once again, Tuesday has come around… and that means it’s time for a Top Ten Tuesday! I’m always excited for Tuesdays because of this. This week The Broke and the Bookish gave us the opportunity to pick our own topic for discussion, and because I’m totally lazy, I looked through past TTT posts. TOP TEN REASONS WE LOVE TO BLOG was one of the past topics and I thought, “YES, that’s what I will talk about this week!” So without further delay, let’s jump in to the reasons I personally love to blog and do book blogging!
1. I can express all my thoughts and opinions freely
I love blogging so much because of the fact that I can get my thoughts out there. Especially about books – in my own personal life, I don’t have anyone to fangirl over the books I read, and as much as I still wish for a real life reader friend, the blogging community gives me tons of reading besties such as all of LOVELY PEOPLE reading this post right now! [Wow, I’m actually getting teary! This is very close to my heart guys, YOU GUYS are very close to my heart!]
2. Blogging opens my eyes to new ideas and things in general
Through blogging, discussing in the comments and reading other people’s blogs, my eyes have been open to so many new ideas and concepts thought by others! I love it! It enriches my life and gets me thinking. And being the introvert that I am [and staying home most of the time, without socialising] blogging has helped me see so much more of life and into the lives of others!
3. The book blogging community is so friendly
An amazing part of being a book blogger is that I get to meet so many encouraging and loving bloggers. I would genuinely love to meet all the people who have dropped me comments and those I’ve talked to!
4. I’m introduced to so many new books
If I didn’t have a book blog and didn’t read other bloggers, my TBR wouldn’t be sitting on almost 300 right now. BUT I DON’T REGRET HAVING THAT AMOUNT OF BOOKS ON MY TBR. You know why? Becuase having them there is better than never finding out about them! There are so many hidden gems out there that different bloggers open my eyes to.
5. INTERESTING DISCUSSIONS
Especially, I’ve found in the book blogging community, we come up with a colourful array of subjects to talk about. Books are so wonderful and give us bloggers the opportunity to talk about so many different things through blogging.
6. It’s honestly my escape from life
When I’m feeling down, or frazzled or my brain feels a little fried, I jump on to my blog and start reading the bloggers I follow. And it instantly perks me up and makes me feel so much better!
7. I’m aspiring to be a writer/author and blogging is my creative outlet
I am so so very passionate about becoming a writer. Every time I think about doing something else, I always come back to the central idea of becoming a writer. Even thinking about it now makes my heart beat with excitement. Blogging is like my first platform to becoming noticed as a writer!
8. It’s so diverse
The blogosphere is so diverse with so many different people writing about different things. It’s amazing to me because through blogging, everyday people can get out there and show themselves to the world and show their uniqueness that might have been overlooked in our everyday society.
9. There’s no limit to what you can do
Honestly, with blogging, there’s nothing you can’t do. You can talk about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. [But don’t write anything illegal or discriminating – well then again, it is a free world]. You might feel like writing about what you did today, well then, GO DO IT! It’s a completely blank canvas, every time, for you to just go crazy with.
10. It’s just amazing [I couldn’t think of another reason, to be honest]
If you’re reading this, and you’re hesitant on starting your own blog, just do it man [by man, I mean everyone, not literally men. I have a very bad habit of saying ‘man’]. But seriously, if you have an urge to blog about something, and really, it can be anything, just do it. Send me the link to your blog! I’ll check it out, I’ll follow you! I’ll comment and talk to you! You all have voices that deserve to be heard.
