As of tomorrow (23rd January) ofBooks will be three years old.
I’ve been blogging – on and off – since I was 18 (which I have just realised is 10 years, good lord). But, I’ve never stuck with a blog for as long as this. I remember when I started, I posted one review a week and had no idea that there were any blogs like mine out there other than SavidgeReads and other long term book bloggers.
A year after that I found stumbled upon numerours book blogs, including Charlie from The Worm Hole, and a year after that I discovered NetGalley, and even more blogs.
Sticking with something for so long (I’m usually fickle) has reinforced my belief that reading and discussing books is what makes me truly happy. It’s not always easy, and I don’t always have something significant to say, but I’m better for this blogging mallarky.
Have some ‘stats’:
My first post was on the 23rd of January: Hey Nerds.
I was wittier (I think) in my first year, and wrote longer introductions to my reviews: The Notebook.
I’m bored of stats.
How long have you been blogging for? Do you still love it as much as when you started? Do you find you blog or read differently now from when you began?
