This post was sort of prompted by Kelly from Diva Booknerd's post about a week ago, where she pledged to be a better book blogger- one who supports others and stands up against bullying. That post is amazing and I strongly urge everyone to read it. Of course, there have been some not so great things in the blogosphere that lead Kelly to make that post and for me to make this one.
Now, as you probably notice- Chami and I aren't massively popular book bloggers, and we're okay with that. When we first started blogging, it was all about the followers and the views, and while I still pay attention to the views of every post- it's more because I'm interested in seeing the type of posts that more people enjoy reading. Chami and I were speaking about this the other night- this blog isn't for the followers anymore, this blog is for us.
I don't think I can put into words how much I love this blog. I have a lot of fun writing this blog, and talking with other bloggers on twitter and Goodreads and in the comment section of blogs. I know we don't have the best design or our own domain, but I really, really love our little blog.
Some of you may know about the more negative things that have been happening around here, and I'm not here to criticise anyone. I understand how easy it is to leave a rude anonymous message somewhere nowadays. What I don't understand is why you would do it? I'm not going to go into this issue anymore because otherwise I might rant for hours.
The purpose of this post was to share some blogger love. I know we all have those blogs we stalk more than others, so I thought I'd share some of mine with you today. Now, I want to mention that I legitimately read all of these blogs- some of them are my friends, others I've never spoken too before but these are some of my favourites.
Val @ Innocent Smiley Reviews - Chiara @ Books for Delicate Eternity - Cait & Mime @ Notebook Sisters - Kelly @ Diva Booknerd - Brit @ Crash My Book Party - Ebony @ Paperbacks & Protagonists - Millicent @ Millicent Nankivell - Laura @ Laura Plus Books - Kate @ Fictional Thoughts - Sofia @ Loving the Language of Literacy
I know I probably forgot some people, but I might do another post like this later on in the year. But until then, I hope you liked the random post and that you'll check out the above bloggers (if you haven't already). See you soon!
