My Origin Story:
One day I woke up to find that GR deleted all the books on my shelves and I was devastated. I discovered that first thing in the morning and then went into the hospital as usual. I thought at that time that I should have made a backup of all of my reviews and the books I read because I won’t be able to remember them all now. Fortunately I saw some updates that other people had the same problem and when I went back home I found that the problem was resolved and that I had all my reviews and books back :D!!
I decided then to start a blog where I will review all the books before reviewing them on GR. Here you have it, my story of how this blog started and then it became much more than it was intended to be
1- Enjoy what you are doing
It is very important to blog because you want to and not because you feel that you have to. It is easy getting distracted by all the stats and numbers and wanting to give more & more. Whenever you feel that blogging is a burden, then it is OK to slow down and take a break!
2- Be initiative
If you are interested in a blog, don’t wait for others to follow you, be initiative and follow them first, if you read the same books, there is a high possibility that they will follow you back too so it is a Win-win situation. But remember that you don’t have to follow back every single person. I usually follow anyone who reads the same book as I do. But I won’t follow back a Yoga page or a cooking page for example because there won’t be much interactions.
