BA’s 26 Posts Blogging Challenge
Welcome to BA’s 26 Posts Posting Challenge for Book Bloggers! The aim of this challenge is to create one post a week, focusing on books, book blogs, and a scattering of personal topics, for 26 weeks. You can learn more, or be kept up to date with topics here.
Posts will go up every Sunday, but you can post any time during the week (all topics are pre-listed), and share your posts in the comments for others to find. Please refrain from targeting individuals, bullying, or slandering in your posts. Share your opinions, but keep it diplomatic if anything negative comes up so this can be, and stay, a fun challenge.
This Week’s Topic
Loving Blogging: What do you love about book blogging and book blogs?
What do I love about blogging and book blogs? So much. When I first started it was a great way for me to be able to connect with others. Being housebound and limited in my physical abilities way back then; blogging gave me both a window to the outside world and a way to express myself when I couldn’t speak to anyone. I was able to connect, educate, learn, focus on something else besides pain, and create project after project to while away the days.
This was all before I began blogging about books. I wasn’t able to read for about two years, my brains were too messed up, but when I was able to begin again oh my, was it wonderful! Having the idea of putting blogging and books together, the former being a newfound addiction (at one point the count reached eleven blogs) and the latter being a long-time love, just seemed to fit so nicely together.
I’m probably a little jaded these days with not being as excited about blogging, but I do love being able to create memes, challenges, banners and badges, change layouts and themes, and posting templates. I love how blogging can allow you to be creative, imaginative, and productive. I love how blogging can inspire you, others, and other blogs can be an inspiration for yourself.
What I really love though is how you get to see just how much people love books, blogging, and how large and diverse the reading community is. I’ve learnt so much and been able to be less isolated in my reading since I began book blogging and following other book blogs.
Don’t forget to share your post if you take part, grab the badge, and tell your friends. The more the merrier!
