So the question this week is:
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?I think this is a very good question. See, we do everything for a purpose, and if you do something without figuring out what your goals are, you'll easily be discouraged and quit. So this question actually helps bloggers to realize their goals in book blogging.
Personally, my goal for running the blog would be to gain some new friends. Not that I don't have friends from school, it's just that I've always been around people that has the same culture as me, so I wanted to know people from around the world, to talk (or at least communicate) with people of different cultures. And since I love reading, what could be better than starting a book blog? I could write down all the thoughts that swirl around my brain after I read a book and sharing it to people on the Internet. I can communicate with them, despite that we live thousands of miles apart. It's a good way to expand my social network ;)
Of course, I don't just run a blog with ONE purpose. I also want to be an author someday. I realized my love of writing only a few years ago. But I am trying to work towards writing my first YA novel. Actually, NaNoWriMo sounds like a good opportunity and motivation to do that. I'll do it, if I have time. ;P (I've always have new ideas striking at the weirdest and most inconvenient hours, I couldn't write them down, yet I always forget them later...)
What are your motives for starting your blog? Tell me in the comments, I would like to know ;)
