Question this Week:

Why did you start blogging? 

When I first heard about blogging, I was in my last year of high school and just starting to begin my passion of reading again after reading Twilight. I know! But I would like to thank this book because it opened me up to new genres and meeting the blogging community. I first started by just posting small reviews up on Chapters Indigo. One day I noticed that someone already read a book not even out so I clicked on the link that was provided and saw that they created a book blog. So I immediately opened up blogger and began my blog here at Stuck In YA Books. This journey has been the greatest because I've become friends with many bloggers, authors and even making connections with publishing companies which was very hard for me to do at first because finding the publicists were a bit challenging at first. My first e-galley site was Galley Grab that was featuring Simon Schuster books then I eventually found Netgalley and Edelweiss. I have even made connections with local authors in my hometown and also started to work at my local bookstore (Chapters).  Looking back I don't regret starting this blog because I've meet with all of you amazing people all around the world. Even meeting authors in person along the way. Thank you for the past 5 1/2 years! 

Let me know how you started!

  2. I think that's a wonderful story! The best thing about blogging (to me) is as you said, connecting with so many great people. Now I just have to balance my time so I have time to keep reading everyone's blogs! So many blogs, so little time!
