Busting the Newbie Blues

I'm a new in the book blogger community so I decided to join this event! Click the button above for more information.

When did you start your blog?
5th December, 2010

Why did you start your blog? 
I thought it would be fun to start a book blog. I've been following a few book blogs for awhile and saw many fun stuff they do besides read great YA books. There were memes and challenges involved and of course the reviewing. It all seemed like fun so I started one too. 

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
I think my biggest challenge is actually writing a review while leaving out some spoilers. Its challenging. But the more I wrote the easier it gets.

What do you find most discouraging about being a new blogger?
The lack of followers and comments. Sometimes its very discouraging to be aware that some posts are left unread with no feedback what so ever. Feedback is always what keeps me going.

What do you find most encouraging? 
The feedback of course. Whenever someone new follows me and comments. I get really encouraged.

What do you like best about the blogs you read? Have you tried to replicate this in your blog? 
I love how easy some blogs are to read because of their layouts and how uncluttered they looked. I try to keep everything on my blog clean and clutter free.

What do you dislike about blogs you’ve read? Do you try to avoid this?
Some blogs look very cluttered and is very hard to actually read it because their layout is confusing and there's text everywhere. I try my best to avoid that. 

Any advice for other new bloggers? 
If you're having a hard time starting out. Use other blogs as an example for your own. It'll help you to lay a foundation.

Anything else you’d like to share about your experience? Nope

Is there anything you’d like to tell us about your blog? 
I made a Vlog explaining everything about blog here:


  1. You're doing a good job. :) Keep it up!

  2. Hi Naj! I've seen you commenting around the blogosphere, and I figured I'd drop by and say hello! You're doing a great job already - by getting involved, talking to other bloggers, and participating every day, you're getting your blog name out there, which is something a lot of new bloggers miss. I know I did!

    If you ever have any questions or problems, feel free to ask me anything! I know what it's like to be a new blogger. Oh, and I'm your newest follower...can't wait to see what you have in store for us! :)

  3. Thanks for participating!

    I like your advice about using other blogs as an example. It really is a very helpful idea.

    I hope this event helps you connect with other bloggers!

  4. Small Review! :D Anytime! It has helped me! :D Thank you.

  5. Hi fellow Newbie!

    I agree that writing reviews without spoilers, or giving away a big part can be hard. I also love getting comments, as it is so interesting to hear what everyone has to say! Glad to have found you!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love comments they're what keeps me going with this blog.
