Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons I Love Being A Blogger

Ah! This topic is hard for me. Given I have been in such a book blogger funk as I wrote about earlier this month here. However, I can think of a least 10 reasons, I love being a blogger and why I am still a blogger.

1. People Think You Are Smarter
Anywhere you are, if you are reading a book will instantly think you are smarter. 

2. Being a Part of a Community
Like I had said before this is something I am struggling with. However, I do know I am apart of this community and it is nice to know that people love books, just as much a you do. I mean it is tough being so smart! (ha ha)

3. Moments Like This.

When authors acknowledge your existence... because honestly, they can just ignore you on social media. They don't have to be nice. 

4. & Moments Like This.

When other book bloggers acknowledge your existence. 
*comments on the blog & youtube too, I just used twitter since it was convenient.

5. Learning about New Books.

I wouldn't read at least 75% of the books I do, if it wasn't for being a book blogger.

6. Meeting Authors

Yea. It rocks. If I wasn't a book blogger, I wouldn't read as much honestly and because of that I probably wouldn't care so much about Author meet & greets, but it is so much fun and such a great experience. Plus, I fangirl over authors like no other!

7. When People Ask for Book Recs.
Esp. family and friends or even if I am at Barnes and Noble or over hear someone talking about a book they are interested in and I have read it before. Being in the "know" and getting to tell someone they should read a book is pretty cool. Esp. when they like it. 


  1. Yup, I have to agree that when author acknowledge you on social media it kinda validates why we blog right?! I remember when my favorite author ever wished me a happy birthday. I died. I was sooo happy. And I totally agree that people automatically thing your smarter if they see you reading. ;-)
