I have been nominated by Escape Inside the Pages for the Blogger Recognition Award! Thanks so much - this is such an honor! This Award was originally created by Eve @ Edge of Night - thanks to you as well for coming up with such a great idea for an award!
Here are the rules:
How I got started in the blogosphere:
I initially started this blog on August 12, 2014. I had been wanting to start up a personal/ book blog for quite awhile but that was the day I finally made the jump. I had worked on two blogs before, but neither were personal. Those two were for school purposes. The first was the class blog for a children's lit course back when I was a senior in college from 2010-2011 and the second acted as my practicum log as I was completing my master's degree in 2012. I also got hooked on Goodreads around 2012 which I started by posting book reviews that I had written for various courses during my master's program. I loved what blogging I had done and participating on Goodreads. Eventually, I realized that I wanted to create my own blog which is where Always Me got it's start. It has been quite a ride and I've enjoyed every second of carving out my own little piece of the internet and meeting lots of interesting people who love to read and talk about reading and their other geeky hobbies as much as I do.
Tips for other bloggers:
- Don't be afraid to talk about what you like and always let your own voice come through.
- Read widely and push your boundaries.
- Don't pigeon hole yourself.
- Explore and make friends with fellow bloggers.
- Have fun!
