How my Blog Started

My blog started in May 2013, I’d been reviewing books I’d read on amazon and goodreads for a while and after reading so many great blogs I decided to set up my own blog sharing my love of reading, crafting, food etc.  Reading is my escapism and it has helped emotionally and mentally especially during the recovering of an illness.  I wanted my blog to focus on the things I enjoyed and to be bright and positive.

Advice for New Bloggers

  1. Always share what you love so you can speak from the heart.
  2. Get yourself a good diary, Filofax or planner and write down dates of book releases/launches etc.  You can then see at a glance if you have the time to review any new material sent your way.
