Why Do You Blog? | Let’s Talk Bookish #6

Hey everyone! I’m finally joining this amazing meme again, hosted by my friend the lovely Rukky @ Eternity Reads! I remember when Rukky first started this meme off, and I think I reposted it or something because I thought it was such a good idea… and I think it’s amazing that it’s managed to go on for this long and get this far – props to Rukky! 😀 I always love talking and having discussions about various subjects, so this is definitely up there with my favourite bookish memes in the bookish blogosphere. This particular topic this week is a really interesting one!

WHY WRITING MEANS SO MUCH TO ME… and why even though I’ve had an on-and-off relationship with it so far, I’m determined to keep going

Hello everyone…. I think we can all agree that at the very least, 2020 was a strange (although this hardly, hardly does it justice) year, and over the past 7 years of my life it was the first year which I did not engage in any writing whatsoever. I was overwhelmed by A Levels, and even though with lockdown I had more time on my hands, I just did not feel motivated or inspired to write (in fact, it was the very least of my concerns… simply adjusting to lockdown in a house with 7 other people was overwhelming, to say the least). I don’t want to jinx anything, but I know that the past few days have really changed my approach to writing that 2020 almost cemented in me (which was uncertainty, demotivation and lack of inspiration) and now with the second lockdown and my exams cancelled (don’t even ask about that because I don’t know what to even think lol) I feel like I almost have more room in my head to get back into writing. So really, this post is all about me talking about why writing means so much to me, why it’s so important to me that I get back into it and not abandon this special hobby to rot in the corner of my brain. I think a writer’s purpose is something that is very personal and unique to each individual – we all have our own way of dealing with things, expressing ourselves and voicing our own opinions – and every reason is valid – so I would love to hear what everyone else’s “purpose” as a writer is! 🙂

Why I Love Reading

Reading is not just a hobby for me. It’s a passion. It’s a fiery love for books and words and stories and the spreading of knowledge. I know a lot of people love reading, but also a lot of people don’t, especially in today’s day and age when gaming and screen-time may seem a more alluring way to spend your time.

And I know this is a bookish blog, so of course the people reading it will love reading, but I’m sure people must have slightly different reasons as to why they love reading, and these are mine…  Continue reading “Why I Love Reading”
