Let's start with the obvious: I am a new book blogger. I profess no expertise in this particular area, but I have been blogging in a personal capacity for almost eight years now, so I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring and get involved! Pinches of salt at the ready, and all that. :)
This is based mostly on things that I like to see from other bloggers, as well as my experience of blogging more generally. Leave me your lists in the comments!
I like reading honest reviews, good or bad. I like to know why. Don't be afraid to put it out there.
2. Read what you like
I read a lot of YA book blogs in particular, but YA only makes up perhaps a third of what I read. Originally I wondered whether or not anyone would be interested in my hodge-podge of reviews, but in the end I decided I like the variety. I like seeing a variety of genres and authors on other blogs, too - quite often that's how I stumble across something awesome that I never would have known about otherwise.
3. Give a little
...of yourself, that is. I like catching glimpses of who bloggers "really" are, aside from their reading habits.
I personally love spying on other people's bookshelves, but pictures in general I enjoy because it breaks up chunks of text and makes things more interesting. Pictures of books, pictures of cats, pictures of hats... whatever floats your boat.
5. Enjoy yourself
I started up Bibliotekit, despite the fact that I have a personal blog where I braindump everything else, because I like wittering on about books, and I wanted to find some people who enjoyed it as much as I did. So have fun with it! I love hearing people's opinions on books and authors and that's what makes it interesting.
6. Learn to count to 10
Unlike me, who has failed miserably at this whole "top ten" malarkey this week.
Happy reading all!
