BBAW Day 3: Blogger Tips

For Book Blogger Appreciation Week, Day Two, Amy has asked us to answer the two questions below. Hopefully you like what I have to say!

What is one thing you wish you knew about blogging when you started or what advice would you give a newbie blogger?

Well, I wish I would've know more about the booking world then I did, because before I pretty much just picked up a book and read it, not paying much attention to the authors and such. So, I kind of figured that authors were like celebrities and were too good to do anything themselves, much like actors and actresses. But now, when I think about that, I feel dumb. Authors are normal people who just write stories and share them with us. Isn't that funny?

As for advice for Newbies, I tell them that the layout and color coordination is pretty important. I would have neon colors, or big patterns, or animated stuff. Keep it low-key and make your reviews the part that everybody comes too your blog for. The reviews, of course, are the most important part, make sure they make sense, have your friend, or a family member, read them over and tell you if it makes sense or what they feel about it. But, the main thing is: Be Yourself. Tell what you think, don't be afraid to say what you feel.

What is your best blogging tip?

My best blogger tips are the tips I mentioned above. I hope they help!
