Saturday Discussions (2)

This week, I wrote a pot talking about how Maggie Stiefvater read my review for Linger and was touched enough to shot me a quick note. I mentioned how this was one of the most rewarding things about blogging. But there are so many wonderful things about it.

So this week's question: Why do you blog?

Here's a short rundown of why I blog:
  1. To put my opinion out there. I was a journal type of girl in high school but journals are lonely and are completely one-sided. It makes sense to want to reach out.
  2. To find like-minded people. And find people I have! The blogger community is so friendly and I've "meet" so many wonderful people.
  3. To put myself out there. My goal in life is to get published. I figure if people know a bit about me, then that's a great platform.
  4. To share my love of reading. 'Nough said.
  5. To meet the wonderful people who write these books I fall in love with. I didn't know about this one at first but I'm so glad I found out.
  6. To find new reads.
  7. To master the section I love!
I'm sure there are more reasons I blog but these are the few I can think of. So tell me, why do you blog?


  1. I blog for many of the same reasons you do. I actually started my blog just for fun, to keep up with what I read. But I've met SO many great people who share my love of reading, it's amazing. And since I have no one to talk to about this stuff IRL, it's nice to be able to chat with others! Finding new books is another great plus!
    Great post!

  2. I blog, above all else, because it's an open formum for bookish discussion where I can interact with other book nerds like myself :)

    Plus, it gives me an excuse to always carry at least 3 books in my purse!


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
