Day 9 - though not exactly because I took a long break. I wasn't really looking to finish this challenge but something about that doesn't feel right. So I will trudge on! There are only six days left after all, I might as well!
The question today is why do you blog about books. Now, that's easy. I blog about books because I love reading! And blogging. I don't know if you've heard but I've had three blogs before Random Reads - all of which subsequently failed. But after finding some book blogs through Google, it made sense to me to combine two of my interests and can I say that it's worked out really well? I'll never not want to talk about the books I've read so even if I'm bored of writing up discussion posts or memes, I know I will always love reviewing books. And it's become so that I can't NOT write a review after I've finished a book. It comes naturally now and so even if I didn't like blogging any more, I think writing reviews will always remain.
But of course I have to add this because this is so true too: the community is what keeps me going too. I love all the book bloggers I've talked to and they're all so friendly. I hear of a lot of drama in the blogosphere but honestly, I haven't seen a bit of it. And it's hard to believe sometimes because all my encounters have been so nice. I've been lucky, I guess?
It's not just the people I love, it's reading blogs that I love too. With all the great insightful posts and competitions and giveaways and memes and EVERYTHING.
And I guess it's because of everything I've mentioned so far that I've been blogging for as long as I have. And I hope I continue to do so for many more months. So keep up the awesomeness, blogosphere! :)
