Today’s topic for BookBlogWriMo is “Why You Blog.”
I’m tempted to say, “Because I love books,” and just leave it at that. But I won’t even though that’s pretty much what it boils down to.
I blog because I love to talk about books. I blog because I love to talk to people who love books about books. I blog because it makes me happy. I blog because it helps me to think critically about what I’m reading. I blog because I like to connect with people over things we’ve both loved. I blog because I get to talk to people civilly about why we don’t agree on a book. I blog because sometimes I’m not sure how I feel about a book but through writing a review, I figure out why. And because reading other people’s reviews about books confirms that even if it seems everyone else loved a book, I’m not the only one who didn’t. Or vice versa.
Blogging keeps me busy. It keeps me sane. It keeps me happy. Blogging is cathartic.
It allows me to talk passionately about something I love: books.
I blog because I love books.
Why do you blog?
