Book Blogger New Year’s Challenge – Day 2

Posted January 2, 2014 by Emily in bookish challenges / 2 Comments

Rachel @ Parajunkee had this awesome idea of a New Year’s Challenge for book bloggers.
You can check out more details about the challenge at Book Blogger New Year’s Challenge.


  • Get to meet new people who all love books as much or even more than I do (this is a quality that is lacking in most of my friends in real life).
  • Able to discover new books and authors (before blogging I didn’t really read any indie or self-published books because I didn’t know about them. I didn’t know what gems they could be).
  • Able to share my love for books and reading (at school, this can be considered a boring subject. It also makes me think I need new friends).
  • Get to have real conversations with authors, aka celebrities in the eyes of a book “nerd”. (On Twitter, but it still counts for something right?)
  • Able to get books earlier (not many, but still…)
  • Able to meet new friends who share my passion for books and reading (have I mentioned how my friends in real life lack the important quality of loving books?)
  • Able to talk to people about books without talking to them in real life. (Talking is just no my thing…) 
  • It’s very time consuming
  • It makes me spend waaayyyy too much time on the computer.
  • The pressure to post is not very fun.
  • Learn of a lot of books that sound good and promising but never have the time to read.
  • It requires a lot of care. (Between writing posts, there’s also writing reviews, creating graphics, promoting posts, etc…)
  • Did I mention it’s very time consuming?
I think the pros outweigh the cons, don’t you!
What is on your pros and cons of blogging list?
