Book Blogger New Year Challenge- Day 2: Pros/Cons of Blogging

Posted January 2, 2014 by Katrina @ Bookish Things in Challenge / 2 Comments

There are a few pros and cons to book blogging.


1. Meet awesome people all over the world
2. Find out about all the awesome book events happening in my area/state
3. Have a place to talk about all the books without boring my husband out of his mind


1. It can be time consuming
2. Sometimes there is a lot of pressure to read all of the “hot” books
3. The drama that sometimes happens in the blogging world can be exhausting. I try my best to stay out of it, but it can still get you down.

So what are some of your likes, and dislikes, of blogging?

    There’s definitely pros and cons in blogging, and in everything, but I think blogging is worth it. What I like about book blogging is definitely having my own space of talking about books. I can also decorate my blog and do bookish posts. In Goodreads, I can’t decorate my profile or do discussion posts. I would have to create a group in order to do it. What I also love about blogging is the community. Although I feel like there are cliques, it’s fun to meet other bloggers and fangirl about books via blogging & twitter. I also feel honored that publishers are trusting bloggers and giving us advance reader’s copies. I think that is one of the most epic things in all epicness! Not even a word, whatever. 🙂 I feel very special that I get to read the book before people and that is the coolest thing ever. What I dislike about blogging is the jealousy that is going around towards arcs. I know that it’s hard to avoid getting jealous, but I wish it would lessen this 2014 and towards the future.

      I completely agree with all of this. Blogging is definitely worth it. It’s my outlet. Even if posts don’t get read, my opinion is out there. 😀
