~This Week's Question:

What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

~My Answer:
So...once upon a time there was a little me. A little me with a gigantic obsession...a gigantic obsession with books.....It all started.....

heheh 
 
The reason I started blogging was because I had no one to talk books with. Here I was with this HUGE book obsession and NO ONE to rant and squeal and express all my feelings and thoughts with about those books. No one in my family reads (except my dad...but who wants to talk with their dad about hot fictional boys right!? Other things ya! Boys no. No boy talk= to fun...) and none of my friends do. It sucked. So then I heard about this little thing called blogging....a whole network dedicated to ranting about the awesome books I have read! Sign me up!! And not only that but people like me to talk to. I can talk to other book obsessors and not get this vibe like I just grew three heads while I DO talk about books! The people in the blogging communicate are so nice! 

......So there. You have just got the insight of my blogging history! Where it all began! Feeling special yet ;) hahaha jk!! ;D 
Thanks for stopping by!! :)
Happy Friday!!
Have a great day!!

  4. Hi Jaiden! New follower hopping through. Lol. I wish I'd found the book blogosphere at your age! I spent a lot of time reading in high school, and guess what? No one to chatter about books with! I guess I'm making up for it now! Happy Friday!

  5. Me too! No one in my family reads, and my friends aren't that obsessed with books, so I also had no one to talk to about books. Blogging is really awesome because you get to talk about books on your blog, and talk to other book lovers as well. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Haha, yeah, I would imagine that you wouldn't want to talk to your dad about boys. I don't really have that many people to talk to about books either which is one of the reasons why I joined. When I get obsessed about a hobby, I need to talk non-stop about it so yay for us! We found an outlet. LOL. Old follower. My FF is here :0)

  12. Great answer! I've always has a real life Book Buddy so I can't imagine having no one to squeal about books with.

  13. The only person that reads in my family is my mum but I much prefer talking about fictional boys with the blogging community. ;)

    New follower!! Great blog!

    My F&F. :)

  14. No one I know really reads either, my mum does but she only reads crime and so I never really have anyone to talk to about the books I love.

  17. Wow, how come we readers can't find each other in real life? There seem to be so many of us looking for bookish friends. Yes, I can't think of anything more awkward than talking to one's dad about fictional hot boys, except talking to your dad about real life hot boys.

  18. Great answers, I can totally understand you! My boyfriend likes to listen to me rant about a book - but it must not be too long and he can't talk back, so.. I love how we are able to talk with other book lovers this way ^^

  21. I feel like that is a huge reason people blog and use GR. I know that's why I do. Honestly, I didn't have anyone to really give me good suggestions of books so I hit GR up and found tons. Now I devour books like they are going out of style :o)
