The Addictive Blog Award

Posted December 18, 2014 by Brin in Awards / 12 Comments

I was recently nominated for The Addictive Blog Award by the lovely Nagina @ OhBookish. A huge thank you to Nagina for the nomination – it really brightened up an otherwise miserable day *grumble* winter weather sucks! It’s funny that Nagina nominated me for this as OhBookish is definitely a blog that I would consider myself to be ‘addicted’ to – anyone reading this should definitely swing by!

Here are the rules for the award:

  1. Thank the person awarding you.
  2. Share a little about why you blog and how the journey started.
  3. Paste the blog award on your page.
  4. Nominate 10 other bloggers you feel deserve the award.

Why I Blog:

I have always loved reading and writing but never really had a proper outlet to express myself. I signed up to Goodreads and really enjoyed being able to share my thoughts on the books that I loved. I also enjoyed the interaction with other readers. Still, I found something a little bit lacking. I decided to sign up to Booklikes which has a bit more of a blogger/tumblr feel and really enjoyed the freedom of being able to share my opinions on stuff and discuss things with other like-minded folks.

I finally decided to take the plunge and started up this WordPress blog in August 2013. I had dabbled around with LiveJournal previously but didn’t really get into it. With WordPress, something just clicked. I started off just posting my reviews and then life stuff caused me to go on a hiatus for a few months just when I was starting to gather steam.

I had a lot of really crappy things going on in my personal life but I decided to make a concentrated effort to really try to get involved with the blogging community. I have met some really amazing people through blogging and they have really helped me get through the difficult times.

I also discovered that although I started out just wanting to share my thoughts on books, I genuinely love coming up with discussion posts on all sorts of subjects. Although my blog is primarily a book blog, I like to discuss other things I enjoy too and absolutely love it when other bloggers share their thoughts too – I get so excited when I see there is a new comment!! 😀 Blogging has really opened up my world.

Blogs I Am Addicted to:

  1. Heir of Ravenclaw
  2. A Well Read Woman
  3. Stephanie’s Book Reviews
  4. Caught Read Handed
  5. Lipsy Lost & Found
  6. My Soul Called Life
  7. Thoughts and Afterthoughts
  8. Escape Inside the Pages
  9. GenGen’s Book Blog
  10. The Sleepy Book Nerd

There are so many blogs I am addicted to so it is hard to narrow the list down but you should definitely check out the above blogs – they rule!

Awesome

    • It can be difficult coming up with unique topics for discussion – I struggle with that A LOT lol. I think personally that you have a really unique voice and I really enjoy visiting your blog and reading your comments. I usually come away looking at things a little differently (which is great because for the most part I am really stuck in my ways). 😉
