This little blog is 1 month old today!
Here’s my feelings towards the past month…
I’ll admit, Books’n’Bits is a confused little blog. Is it a book blog? Is it a diary? Is it a place for me to just post about things I like?
I started the blog to fill time, as a hobby, for something to do. The blog needed a subject and as I was reading a lot the obvious subject was books. I knew at the start that I wanted to do posts other than books as well. Hence the ‘bits’. However, as this month has gone by, I realise that I probably will end up doing more of the ‘bits’ than the ‘books’! My reading has gone down the pan as I spend my spare time either on twitter or tinkering with my blog theme… can’t do reviews if I’m not reading as much. I’m hoping that it’ll get back to normal once the novelty has worn off a little bit… I’m sure it will… right??
To start with I went in all guns blazing with Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I’ve since added a Pinterest and a BlogLovin’. However it’s twitter that’s been my main focus… however much it irks me sometimes! See my little meltdown here. I think the Facebook will be deleted as it’s just not for me. It also doesn’t seem to be the platform favoured by most bloggers. I need to up my Insta game as well. I am sporadic over there at best! Social media has been a HUGE distraction… does anyone else find that it takes over completely??
What’s surprised me most is the whole blogging community. So welcoming and so much advice! It’s been a real treat getting to know a few bloggers and chattering about this, that and the next thing.
Like any blogger (new or old), I’ve had ‘the wobble’. I’m going to keep at it though, try not to worry too much that Books’n’Bits doesn’t have a clear direction just yet, and continue to post random bits and pieces.
I’d be interested to hear how you found blogging when you first started… did you have a clear direction?
Follow me EVERYWHERE (it’s not weird, honest!)
