Blogger Origins Part II // Four Stories of Bloggers Joining the Community

I’m back again to spread some appreciation for the wonderful people that are bloggers.

All the way back in August, I published the first segment of a new series on my blog called Blogger Origins. Despite the fact that it has taken me *much* too long to continue on with this series, I’m very excited to actually be posting a part II of it today! (And I apologize for once again semi-disappearing from the blogosphere and for the extreme delay in continuing with this series. I blame it on schoolwork and my bad habit of spending more time thinking about my blog than actually blogging.)

To provide a little background on what Blogger Origins is, it’s an idea I had last summer when I became curious about how people found the book blogging community. I think this community is an amazing place, so it’s always being intriguing to me how we all ended up here by chance. This series is essentially just me featuring the stories that bloggers have been so kind as to send to me in an effort to show appreciation for and spotlight the amazing bloggers that exist. My hope is that you find these stories just as interesting as I do, and that you find new bloggers to follow!

My 2019 Book Blogger Award Nominations // ft. all the love for book blogs + bloggers I adore!!

In case you didn’t know, book bloggers are beyond amazing.

Book bloggers not only balance normal life (meaning work, school, relationships, anything they have going on) with reading (because we need books like we need oxygen) but on top of all that they blog about it too?? Yes, they deserve all the love and adoration in the world.

Taking into account all the time and effort my fellow book bloggers put into maintaining blogs (and being the absolute best humans while doing it), I can’t think of any better way to nominate them than to participate in the 2019 Book Blogger Awards.

Blog Title - Design #1 (32)

These awards, formerly held by Joce @ Write Through the Night (she’s now a retired book blogger), are being hosted by May @ Forever and Everly this year, and I’m so, so excited to be participating. A huge thank you to May for taking on this project- I know it’s going to help boost so many bloggers and it’s so wonderful that she’s continuing it!

In this post, I’m going to be sharing my nominations for all the categories and also talking a little bit about all the bloggers I’m nominating. You all know me, I can talk forever, especially about people I love. 😉

If you want more information on how to participate (which you should definitely participate!!) then definitely go check out May’s post where she talks about all the rules, gives all the categories, and just, in general, informs you about the entire awards.
