The Reading After Dark book blog has received a nomination for the Blogger Recognition Award from Jade from JadeXO. Thank you so much for the nomination. It is truly humbling to receive recognition from a peer blogger.
JadeXO is a beautiful and inspiring blog, so be sure to check it out. Ms. Jade hails from Queensland...that's in Australia! (Now I have a friend in the AU) Thank you so much for the nomination Jade!
Blogging isn’t made for the faint hearted. We work long nights and early mornings just to make sure we’re satisfied with our content and site design and it takes a lot of hard work. The Blogger Recognition Award is from bloggers, awarded to other bloggers. It’s a way of showing appreciation for the hard work our fellow peers put into their blogs and content!
The Beginning of Reading After Dark:
I read a lot, it's a perquisite of a book blogger. My friends were getting tired of listening to me go on and on about fictional characters. I thought it would be a great outlet to share my book passion. Little did I know how epic the book community is. I've made some awesome friends, attended some really cool events, and read some amazing books. I even have a partner in crime now! My love for books has taken me on an adventure in more ways than one.
Advice for New Bloggers:
If you're a new blogger the best advise that I can give you, is make sure your topic is something you love. Blogging is actually a lot of work, and there are rules and guidelines you have to follow. If you're not passionate about it, you're not going to enjoy it, and eventually you'll have an abandoned blog on your hands.
If you blog at all, experiment. There are so many blogs on the blogosphere these days. You won't stand out if you don't try different things. You don't have to follow best practices, or do what everyone else is doing. The great thing about creating in the digital space is that if something doesn't work out, you can scrap it and try something else.
