I think ya'll know what THursday means on my blog now. It's Thursday Blog Trot time!
Oh yeah, we are heading to some different blogs today, and some pretty cool ones that that!
This week, I’ve had a lot on my mind regarding blogging. While planning out some new content of my own, and to a bit of my dismay, I found some other bloggers posting about similar topics that I’ve been currently researching.
It’s easy to get discouraged and give up right away on the project in front of me seeing that others are already discussing it. But then I was thinking, You know what? We all have our own voices as bloggers, and shouldn’t be deterred from a topic because it isn’t solely yours to discuss. In a world constantly pushing us to be first, better, bigger, faster, it’s easy to forget that we don’t have to be those things in order to produce quality blog posts.
This is one reason why I love this meme–I like being able to read others’ ideas and thoughts on a topic, their suggestions, tips, and guides that they put a lot of time into putting together! As a book blogger, it’s important to support others doing the same thing as myself, because it’s how we learn from, and grow with one another!
Thursday Blog Trot is a weekly meme dedicated to passing along great information provided by bloggers from all over the world. If you like the sounds of this Thursday Blog Trot Meme, feel free to use it, along with the image provided! Be sure to comment below if you do!
Danielle over at PoetryBooksYA had an interesting, and personal discussion post about reading pressures as a book blogger. In My Reading Pressures as a Book Blogger, she discusses her perspectives on the reality of book blogging. It’s a lot of work, and quite literally could be a full-time job (at least for myself it could be!) Thanks, Danielle, for being honest and open with your perspective with this topic!
Tracking Reading via Bullet JOurnaling
Any bullet journalers out there? If so, Sushma from SpunkyReads posted about using bullet journaling to track her reading. I’ve dappled in a bit of bullet journaling, and the options to keeping one are literally endless–which can make it almost difficult at times to figure out just how to organize it! So, if you are looking for ways to use your journal for reading, check this post out!
Book Review Blogs: Good or Bad?
Charvi from Not Just Fiction had an enlightening post about blogs focusing only on book reviews. This one hit home for me because my first year of blogging, this was mainly what I was doing! Granted, I had my reasons, but it’s good to hear about this tactic from the perspective of the observer! It’s a great read for any and all book bloggers!
