Reflections of a New Blogger

No review today. I just wanted to chat a bit about what being a blogger means to me.

So my little blog is a whole two months old today! It is very much a work in progress, and will evolve as time goes on, and I learn more. But I love it! I set it up primarily to share my love of books, and to maybe encourage folk to try an author or book that's new to them. And occasionally talk about other stuff. But for me, it's turned out to be so much more than that.

The last wee while has been a bit of a struggle for me for a variety of reasons, and the blog has been a saving grace. It's given me something positive to focus on and enjoy - as long as I don't put myself under too much pressure!I

I have read and reviewed some fabulous books, connected with readers and authors, and generally had great feedback about the blog. I've joined the most fantastic, supportive community of book bloggers, who couldn't be more lovely or helpful. I'm signed up for my first blog tour in early July, and have several more scheduled in over the summer and autumn, which is really exciting - looking forward to all of those. And I was asked to be a reader for the Bloody Scotland McIlvaney Prize, which is a huge privilege.

And that's just been in the last two months! I can't wait to see where my blog takes me, but I hope you'll join me  on the ride! Thank you for visiting and reading my posts. If you would like to sign up to follow the blog, you can do it on the home screen. It would mean the world to me.

Hugs. x
