Relationships


Today we are talking about relationships in the blogging world. I really enjoy interacting with other bloggers since my family gets really tired of listening to me talk about this book or that book. It’s nice to have other people that share the same crazy obsession that you do. One of the places that I meet most bloggers is on Goodreads, this is where my obsession actually began.

I have met 2 different bloggers that I would actually call my friends and we interact quite often. Jude from In Between Writing and Reading  and Kayleigh from Kayleigh’s Book Blog.

Jude and I are moderators for 2 groups on goodreads, Blogger Lift (all about blogging) and The Young Adult Book Club. We also have created The Indie Spotlight for the month of May which focuses on Indie Authors.

Kayleigh and I are mods for the group Fantasy & YA Addicted Book Club on goodreads and she is actually the first friend that I made there.

While on this topic, just a shout out to Jude and Kayleigh and a big THANKS for your friendship!!!

So, have you made any blogger friends? Let us know about them!!!

  1. Nothing like a bit of face-to-face interaction 🙂 MY BEA Armchair was also about it.

    I know what you mean about family getting tired of our book ramblings. If someone distractedly mentions a book around me, there I go until I realize everyone else’s eyes have glazed 🙂

  2. Goodreads is where I got inspired to start blogging as well. I didn’t know you moderated those groups on goodreads- will have to check them out!

    I have a bookish family that I can talk to about books, but my main bookish contacts are online.

  3. I know exactly what you mean about your family perhaps getting tired of hearing about your books. Mine may also be feeling the same way. (Haha) I write it down to the fact that us authors/artists may be slightly outside the “norm”. Those who do not engage in the act of creativity can’t possibly understand the hows and whys us creators of stories operate or how it feels to create something from nothing, except what lurks deep inside our imaginations. Goodreads has provided me a link to those who understand. Even many of the readers at goodreads are dedicated to the craft and seem to get at least a small grip of what it must be like to be creative. Their appreciation is shown when they read books. And ours is shown when we write books. It’s a good trade.
