Follow Friday(17)

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #80

Follow Friday is a weekly event hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This week's Question is:
Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?
This is such an awesome question this week. There is a bunch of little things that made me want to start book blogging. First and formost was my friend. She started a book blog a few months before I started mine. I saw how awesome and amazing it was to get out all of your emotions and feelings about the books you were reading and to actually be able to tell others about them. Amy still has her blog and I aways credit her for the inspiration of my blog. =] If you want to check out my #1 inspiration the link to her blog is here. She gives amazing detailed reviews of all the books she reads. Her reviews are just awesome. =] Another thing is, I didn't even know that there was this huge community of book bloggers out there. There has to be at least a million of us. That is another reason that attracted me to this great world of book blogging. Plus all of the awesome giveaways and review books that are offered is another great perk of this blogoverse. I really can not wait to continue my journey of book blogging, have my reviews improve even more than they are now and be able to get a lot more followers to be able to talk to about awesome amazing books.
Happy Follow Friday.
Thanks for everyone who follows me, I will follow you back. =]

  1. Great answer! I had no idea the book blogging community was so big until I really got into it! Now, I can't imagine NOT book blogging!

  2. I didn't know the book blogging community was this big either, and I love it, I don't know how I ever did without it! I never had anyone to talk to about books all of these years, but I'm enjoying it now :) Thanks for stopping by, I followed you back.

    1. Thanks for your comment. For some reason I can't comment on you Disqus thing. Hope you see this. Awesome answer on your blog. I love that you stuck with it and kept going and that you just needed to share your love of books with the world. Thanks for sharing and visiting my FF.

  7. That's one thing I still struggle with whether I wrote my reviews well enough but other than that I love blogging.

  8. I was the same way and didn't realize how big the community was until I started. But it's awesome. I love it. :) Great answer to an awesome question this week. New follower via LinkyFollowers.


  9. Thanks for the follow Michael. I don't have a friend like you do but I think the fact that I've made a few through blogging makes up for it.

  15. Hi Michael, thanks for stopping by! (haha, love your recovering Potter addict button!) Yes, definitely! I was so surprised as well! I had NO idea the massive number of book-loving bloggers there were, it was a bit overwhelming at first, to be honest.

    New GFC follower!

  16. I just love the fact that you can just ramble on and on about books in this awesome book blogging community - one of my favourite aspects of blogging!
    Following back via GFC and Twitter too! Thanks for stopping by!

  17. Why hello there!

    I am returning the love that you showed me earlier on my blog, and I gotta say that it's amazing how many of us have started book blogging because of a friend or word of mouth. Our community is getting bigger by the hour and there is just so much to extract from it. It's awesome!

    I look forward to seeing your stuff in the future.

    I am following you on GFC and Twitter (obviously. lol)

  18. I didn't know anything about the book blog community before I started blogging. I can see why it would be a huge draw now. I'm returning the follow! Thanks for stopping by.

  19. Hey there! I just started following you!
    Here is my FF :
    Thanks (:

  20. Thanks for the words of support--it's always nice to meet like minded people! New Follower, too! =) Hope you had a good weekend!

  21. I'm still working my way into the blog-o-sphere, right now I'm working with a blog site doing reviews here and there, but it's still somewhat hard, since most of the autors know the 2 co-founders, and I'm working on getting my name out there also.
    I was surprised by the number of book bloggers when I first started looking around, I'm glad that I have gotten to know a few out you guys out there, and I'm looking foward to meeting more.
    Thanks for the answer to this, and thanks for having this blog :)

  22. How great to have a friend who got you into it! I think the blogging community is awesome, and it would have been great to go into it already knowing someone.
