~My Blogging Story~
I don't actually have much of a story, to be honest... 
I've always loved reading! When I was little, I'd be told that I read too much, but that it would be good in the long run. I just shrugged it off and continued reading. 
One day, I was pretty bored, so I did something that was floating around in my head for a while - created a book blog! (It was either that or a booktube channel...) I'm not good at code or photoshop, so I stuck with a pre-made layout, made my cover photo with a friend (thanks!), and just started writing as if i always had! Initially, I just wanted it to be a sort of personal book log that others could see... Then I got my first comment, and I panicked for a while XD 
Now and then, I still change things around. Like now I'm changing the rating system, and adding pages, and changing minor things! 
Tada! Told you it wasn't much! XD 
But I must say that now blogging has become a fairly important part of me, as I love ranting/fangirling with people who just get it! Sharing opinions is always great too! I'm so glad to have some great blogger friends out there! 

~My Advice~
1. Read what you want, when you want, and have your own opinion. Saying you liked a book when you didn't just to fit popular opinion becomes obvious in your writing. Plus, it'll make you a happier and more comfortable blogger! Similarly, make a blog for yourself, first. It'll be the way you want it, rather than something generic :) Once its that way, include your audience in decision making, tags, etc! :D

2. Comment on blogs! People will notice you back :)

3. Don't stick to a schedule. I know everyone's always like 'schedule schedule schedule!' But if you are in school/uni/work, your whole life is already run by a schedule. Posting things when you want to, and on your own time will make your more relaxed, and you will enjoy blogging a lot more!
