Feature & Follow Friday #24

Q: What drove you to start blogging in the first place?

A: I needed an outlet for all my bookish thoughts. For awhile I tried getting my mom to read all the books I read so we could talk about them, but she wasn't keeping up haha. I had too many book thoughts and no where to share. I had no idea there was even a book blogging community when I started. Now Reading Kelly is like a diary of my books with the occasional travel post thrown in and I love it.

Why did you start blogging? Leave me a comment and let me know!


  1. I ended up keeping mine for that reason as well! I love reading and needed someone to talk to about them!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    I was a featured blogger!!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  2. I started blogging a long time ago as an outlet to try and get through high school! I had just random blogs before and never had anything really stick until I started a book blog. I love the book blogging community and it's great having an outlet to talk about books. No one but one of my fellow blogging friends loves books as much as I do so I love being able to talk about books all the time without being told to shut up!

    1. I love having a supportive community. Some of my friends and family get tired of my talking books all the time.

  3. Great answer! I really love to put my thoughts down about the books I read. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Thanks for stopping by! My parents and friends are not very bookish either and I need someone to fangirl about hot male characters with!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. Old follower via GFC. My mom was the only person I knew who could read as much as me. But I agree- that's one of the great things about blogging. Meeting people who love books so much they not only read books, they want to share their thoughts about books. Until I started blogging, I didn't have an appreciation for how much time people spent writing detailed reviews. But I do now.

  6. It's always awesome when you love your blog. I've been through some phases where I hated blogging but still forced myself to and that was just awful.

    Followed back via GFC!

  7. I know what you mean about having lots of thoughts about books! :)

  8. Ha! I am the same with my mom! :-) Whatever the reason, I am glad everyone started blogging! It is a great community and I love meeting new people. :-)

    Thanks for the follow, and I am a new follower via email.

  9. Great answer! I feel the same way. I always want my friends/sister/husband to hurry up and read a book so we can discuss it and dissect every part of it, but they don't always keep up and are often reading their own books (i don't understand that - they should just read what i recommend ;)
    Thanks for the follow! I'm following you back :)


I love hearing from you! I appreciate all comments and will try to reply as soon as possible.
