Over two years ago

My first post was over two years ago, and I actually do remember why I started this blog in the first place. I had just discovered the world of book blogs and thought had to join in. And I’ve never regretted it. It’s fun, talking about books I love or hate, sharing bits of my life, showing off my photos, “meeting” new people from all over the world.

I have to admit that I love the internet. Face-to-face, I’m not totally comfortable, and I’m horrible on the phone. The internet and e-mail have liberated me. I can write whatever I want- if people care enough to read it great, if not that’s fine too. At heart, my blog is for me. It’s about the things I enjoy, the people I love. It made me happy in the beginning and still does.

Why did you start blogging?

  1. I am like that too, I love being able to talk to everyone and just feeling so free. Like a completely different person.

    Anway, I started mine cos I wanted to blog about books, but mostly I wanted to talk about books with other people.

  2. Congrats on 2 years. Time sure flies doesn’t it. I started blogging because a friend of mine had started one and after I had seen the whole world of book blogs I was hooked and started mine. I’ve never looked back. I’ve had such fun and met such great people.

  3. Good for you for keeping up your blog for so long!

    I started because I had heard you could make a lot of money from starting a blog. I haven’t made any money, but I discovered that blogging is a great way to encourage my love of writing. So I’m still blogging after a year with no plan to stop any time soon.

  4. Congrats on 2 years! I’m really shy in person and don’t like talking on the phone, so I hear you about the Internet making you more outgoing.

    I started my blog to record my thoughts on books (and knitting, though I hardly do that anymore), and I’m pleased that I’ve kept with it for so long.

  5. Happy two years to you, Carol! I really enjoy blogging and all the interaction with everyone too. I originally started out with a blog on MySpace where I mostly blogged about books…but hardly anybody read it…LOL! Only when Twitter came on the scene and I met Ryan (Wordsmithonia) did I find out about this vast and wonderful book blogging community. I love every minute of it and when people ask me why I spend so much time online, I think, “They’ll never understand.” Book blogging and book bloggers are a different animal and frankly, I’m proud to be one of them!

  6. What bookworm doesn’t like talking about books and all things bookish? Joining the book blogging community has been so enlivening for me – connecting with booklovers from all over the world and finding out about so many more books I never would have picked up on my own.

    Congratulations on your blogging milestone!

  7. Ciao all the best for 2011. I am back at last catching up on all the posts I missed while I was away from computing. I have enjoyed catching up with your posts this afternoon.

    I started two blogs one to keep in touch with family and friends when we moved to Italy and the other one to indulge my love of books.
