Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by both Alison Can Read & Parakunkee’s View. The point of Feature & Follow Friday is to gain blog followers for book bloggers. You can find more info about this meme here.
Q: What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online attention, or maybe something very different?
Oh my gosh, I love this question, although I don’t think it is an easy one to answer. I know why I started this blog (as a way to express my feelings about books that most of my friends don’t read), but what I hope to accomplish is certainly different. I think what I want to accomplish the most is to make friends with people who love the same kind of books I do. Well, maybe not the exact same books as me (because it is great to have differences), but to make friends with people who love to read as much as I do.
I know a lot of bloggers also write, and maybe hope to be an author someday, but I am not one of them. I love my job as a children’s librarian. It certainly isn’t perfect (what job is?) but it satisfies me more than any other occupation could. But, although I have no desire to be an author, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the amazingness that authors create! Although reading is solitary, in a way, it let’s me connect to people like nothing else could. And I’m hopping this blog helps me connect to other people.
Also, I wouldn’t mind it if lots of people liked me blog. 🙂 I put a lot of time and effort into it, and it is nice to feel appreciated, right?
