Tag: Blogger Recognition Award

Hi guys! Today I still don’t have a review for you (although I’m finally getting into Red Queen so my review should be up over the next few days), so I’m going to be doing a tag!

Thank you to Emma for nominating me for this!


The rules:

  • Write a post to show your award
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Give two advice to new bloggers
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to

Why did I start this blog?

My story is actually extremely similar to Emma’s, although I didn’t own a blog before ours! She started a book blog early 2015, mentioned it to me and I quickly wanted to join in! We ran a blog together from March-September, when our friendship hit hard times, and we decided not to keep it that way. To put it bluntly, running the blog together was affecting us, and neither of us wanted that!

But on the other hand, both of still wanted to talk about our passion for books, and so we went our separate ways and started our own blogs! Since then, The Books Are Everywhere has been my place, and The Book Crunch has been Emma’s! And we still came out the other side better friends than ever.

Tips for new bloggers?

1…have fun, do it for you, not for other people! No one else is going to like your blog if you don’t, and if you’re not putting your heart and soul into it, that won’t show to a reader. So just do what makes you happy and stop worrying about other people!

2…as Emma said, interact! Most people are so lovely in the book blogging community, and you’ll be surprised how quickly people will be commenting on and following your blog if you interact with them!

I’m tagging:

You! If you haven’t done this tag and fancy it, go ahead…I tag you!

Above I tried to include some of the very first people that followed my blog, instead of my most recent followers like I usually do. Here, I’d just like to take a moment to thank everyone who has clicked that follow button. If you hadn’t, I wouldn’t still be here. So honestly, I can’t thank you all enough.


May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽

  1. Great story! Thanks for the tag. I did this one already but that was when I first started. My experience is different now that I’m almost a year in. I look forward to doing it again. 🙂
