The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Crazy-For-Books and is currently being hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. Every Friday, a new question is posted for book bloggers to answer in the coming week. The purpose of the hop is connection and community. You can discover new blogs to follow, new books to read, and you may end up with some new followers, as well!
This Week’s Question
What is your favorite part about the book blogging community?
Submitted by Julie @ Stepping Stones Book Reviews.
Ohhh, one of my favorite things to talk about! This wonderful bookish community that I stumbled upon after starting my blog!
There are so many things that I love about the book blogging community. I love that there’s this diverse group of people from all walks of life that have come together over their love of books. I love that they bring my attention to books I may never have read before joining the community. I love how hard we all work to support authors and their stories.
But my favorite part, hands down, has to be the amazing support I’ve found in the book blogging community ❤ I have to give a particular shout-out to all the wonderful people I’ve meet being a part of The Write Reads tour group. I remember when I started my blog and I was getting a feel for what I wanted it to be. Dave from The Write Reads sent me a message on Twitter asking if I wouldn’t like to be in the gang. I had been curious about doing blog tours and Dave was so nice that I figured, why not give it a go?
So I said yes, he added me to the group chat, and it has become, hands-down, my favorite space on the internet. I didn’t know what I was missing as a blogger until I found this group! Everyone is so helpful and supportive and kind. And it’s so wonderful having a space where I can nerd out about books (among other things!) and people actually engage! I’ve meet some of my favorite people because of this group and I’m so glad I took a chance and joined.
Having and maintaining a book blog can sometimes feel like a lonely experience. My biggest suggestion to new bloggers is finding your people within the book blogging community because the support they give you can be such an incredible boost; not only to your morale but your numbers! I’m so happy I found my bookish people 🥰
(Also, if you’re looking to participate in book tours, The Write Reads is always a great place to start!)
