Love-a-Thon Mini Challenge #4 - Letter to My Blogging Self







Time for Love-a-Thon Mini Challenge #4 which is a letter to my blogging self. Although I have been blogging since 2007, THIS is a new book blog so I will be writing a letter to my future self. Talking about the stuff I like so far and what I hope to accomplish in the future. 

Dear Future Dana,

First your blog is awesome. You are doing this because it is fun and because blogging keeps you from having all of your friends eyes glaze over when you gush and fangirl over your latest read. I think that you are going to have quite a few loyal readers but don't worry about that. Don't worry about the numbers. As soon as it stops being fun then take a step back.

Your favorite thing about blogging right now is meeting all these fantastic new friends in the book blogospere. And there are some really great people out there!

Keep it simple and don't forget your voice. 

Dana

  3. Great letter! I definitely feel like I can relate. I feel weird about numbers- subscribers and/or twitter followers. I think you are right... it's so important to remember that numbers mean nothing if you aren't having fun!! It's all about enjoying books and having a group of people to share it with!!

  4. Short yet so helpful! Sometimes I begin to obsess over statistics but not as much as when I first started blogging. I couldn't agree less about the lovely book blogging friends out here. I am so glad we can have events like this love-a-Thon. Congrats on being a vet blogger!

  8. I love the letter to yourself! I have had to be gone most of the day so I wasn't able to be involved as much as I wanted to be. You are so right about being able to talk about books with people that love hearing about them and their eyes not glazing over. Very funny :D and too true. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

  10. What a wonderful letter and some great gems of advice in there! I think the "friends are not as interested in books as you are" scenario happens to everyone - I know especially with me!
