I’ve spent the last few months in a state of disarray.
It’s been such an incredible joy to connect to readers across the globe through Goodreads and my blog…but recently, I’ve felt like something was missing.
The spark that I used to feel when I wrote reviews was starting to dwindle. I still have fun writing, but it’s almost become a little same-y in my life.
Read book, write review. Rinse & Repeat.
Don’t get me wrong – reading and reviewing will be something I do until my dying day. Words are in my blood…but, I felt like I needed something more.
Something to kickstart my life. Something to add in some much-needed variety.
So, like many from my generation…I turned to YouTube and discovered a whole new world. There’s Meltotheany, Emma Books, Little Book Owl, Jesse the Reader, and so many more delightful, hilarious and witty bookish people.
It was a whole new way to talk about books.
BookTube. I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
And so, just last Sunday, I took the plunge and published my very first video – all about my bookish obsessions. From middle school to grad school – what books kept me up at night.
It was so much fun – I haven’t felt this excited since I wrote my first Goodreads review.
Watching people’s reactions was exhilarating. I must have refreshed the page nearly a hundred times that first day – watching the view count climb up.
I don’t know exactly where this is going, but I’m incredibly excited to find out. Thank you for coming along on a journey with me!
