I discovered April’s 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge at Good Books and Good Wine. Each day has a different prompt, though anyone can jump in at any time. It’s a great way to get to know each other as well as explore different topics that I might not have touched on. The 15 different challenges are:
Today’s Challenge: Why do you blog about books?
So maybe my answer is being influenced because what I’m watching while writing this (The Geek and Sundry Vlogs’ Vlogger Hangout #2 on YouTube), but I blog about books because it is what I’m passionate about.
I say passionate both with the light and heavy meaning. I love to learn about things and get involved with things whether they are clubs, crafts, people, or books. In some ways, I am a very passionate person when it comes to my hobbies and subjects that I find myself devoting some time too. At the same time, books have always been a defining part of my life. I was that kid hiding a book underneath my desk that was levels above what the class was reading out loud. Of course I’d get in a little bit of trouble, but the point is, I have always had words in my life.
In the plethora of social media out there, in the different blurbs you always have to write to describe yourself, I have used ‘pursuing dreams of words & nerdiness’ in almost all of them. I am both a writer and a reader, I am a communicator. Words are one of the tools of human connection.
So I blog to share my passion, to have an outlet for it, and also inspire myself to pursue it in an active way. Because it’s hard to pursue when it’s planned for tomorrow instead of today.
