How CJR The Brit started:
Well, back in 2012 I decided I needed an outlet for the bookish thoughts in my head so I started my WordPress blog. I really wanted to help promote authors and get on the blogger ladder so I started signing up for tours with various PR companies and publishing houses.
And so it went on…..
A year ago I decided that I didn’t want to keep posting the same content as everyone else on tours etc and I had an idea in my head of how I want to make my blog look. So I renamed and started making my own posts. I still have a long way to go but I am another step closer to how I envisage my blog to be…..its just finding the time to make my ideas fly!
In between all this my friend suggested we started a Facebook page so A Brit and a Yank Book Blog was also born.
Advice for new bloggers:
You don’t have to be the same as everyone else. Do you and what you want to post. I don’t stress about stats, likes or comments (ok sometimes I have a little wobble!)
The book blogging community on WordPress is like none I have ever met. Lovely and supportive, just the way its supposed to be.
The more you interact, the more you get to know people. The more you get to know people, the more lovelier the book world becomes.
