Top Ten Tuesday (2)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks topic: Top Ten Reason Why We Love [Book] Blogging!

I am still fairly new to this but this question is relatively easy.
  1. Other Bloggers: I have met some awesome people since I started book blogging. I rarely meet people with my same interests in real life. Meeting other bloggers is so refreshing.
  2. Authors: I never knew how easy it was to communicate with authors/ debut authors/ aspiring authors.
  3. Writing: I enjoy expressing myself here. It is a great outlet for a normally shy person. I really like participating in memes like this one and friday follow, blogger hop.
  4. BOOKS!! Talking about my obsession with books and the written word is totally acceptable. Books are my shoes! Other readers/ book bloggers get that.
  5. Read Requests: I'm sorry but I feel really important when a author approaches me and asks me to read their upcoming novel based on my blog.
  6. Reading: I have read so much more since I've started blogging. I give myself deadlines so now it is easier for me to take time out to read.
  7. Other Blogs: I really enjoy reading everyones blogs. Especially those who not only talk about books but their lives as well.
  8. New Books: I have been introduced to new books/ new authors/ new genres since I began blogging. It has really opened up my eyes.
  9. Creativity: I must say I love blogger. I wouldn't want to blog anywhere else. I love the design options and all the cool stuff you can do here. Others, who don't blog, see it and are really impressed and I can say I did that (eventhough its extremely easy).
  10. ARC: I had no clue what a ARC was before I started blogging. They are great! Love them!
More than anything, I have gotten great ideas for when I publish my novel. I had no idea about how to self market your work and how book bloggers can help with that. 

What do you love about [book] blogging?

I love blogger too. I know it has been having some issues lately but I've had a blogger since 2004 (my personal) it is really simple and easy. It looks impressive and they are improving on things all the time.

Oh and I love all things books :)

I agree with you on #9 ! Blogger is great. I've been told to join Wordpress so many times, but I just can't seem to be able to leave blogger!! Speaking of which, love your blog design :)
Nice list!!

I feel the same way about Wordpress as you do about blogger. I've had so many people approach me about my blog layout and while I did it, it was easy because of Wordpress. :)
