I hope you are all doing well.
Let’s Talk Bookish, is a weekly meme hosted by Rukky@ Eternity Reads and Dani @ Literary Lion where bloggers get to “discuss topics, share their opinions and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.” I saw this over at the Bookish Thinker’s blog (https://yourpaperhearts.wordpress.com/) as a book tag and immediately knew I was going to do this. Do check out her blog. This is a pretty short book tag but I love the questions.
This time the theme is : Why Do You Blog?
So here we go……
When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging in June 2018 after I turned 40 in May of that year. It was a year of several new beginnings for me and blogging was one of them. My main interest in blogging came from my desire to document or journal about books that I read. I had realized over the years that after reading some very fantastic books, I would then forget what the story was about and I thought it wise to keep a journal as a reminder. Two years down the line and this blog has taken up a life of it’s own.

What keeps you motivated to continue?
Blogging is somewhat therapeutic for me. It is something that I now derive a lot of joy and peace from. I also find the interactions and the entire community a healthy space where I can be and this really motivates me.
Have you ever thought about not blogging anymore?
The thought has never crossed my mind even once.
What would make you go on a hiatus forever?
Probably only if I am so ill that I am unable to type on my computer.
Do you have any specific plans for your blog this year, and if so, what are they?
Not really. I try to keep things simple. Consistency is my watch word. In the past two years, I have tried to come up with new ideas and content that were not on my blog when I initially started but right now, I think my hands are full with book reviews, author interviews, book tags, poetry and a podcast.
So this is it! Thanks for stopping by.
