This week's prompt: Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging for myself (in September of 2010). I really didn't do much research and had no idea there was such a huge book blogging community. I had another blog previously just for fun where I talked about all of my hobbies (sewing, cooking, reading) and anything else I wanted to talk about. Very nonspecific, just for fun, only a handful of followers. But I separated my book blog (and eventually stopped posting to that blog) so that I could remember what I read. I thought if I wrote down a bit about each book, going back and looking at my review would jog my memory. And it does! You see, I'm a high school librarian and I give a lot of book recommendations. But reading over 150 books a year makes it hard to remember each book specifically other than, "I really loved that one!" or "I had problems with that one, but I can't remember why." Blogging has helped me immensely with that. The rest of the benefits of having a blog are just a big bonus that I didn't expect!
How about you, why did you start your blog? Leave me a link. Thanks for stopping by.
