WHY DO I BLOG?
Welcome back to another segment of Blogger Bits! Today I’m going to discuss the reasoning why I decided to create The Staircase Reader book blog.
*This is going to be a short and sweet post*
Since I can remember, I have had a fascination with reading. There is something about getting lost in a book and vividly capturing scenes that is captivating. I started reading at a young age. My obsession started with a yard sale steal! My mom bought me a bag full of The Babysitters club novels. I WAS ADDICTED! As I started to age my attention started to sway more towards the romance genre. V.C. Andrews was my author of choice. At thirteen years old, I read my first harlequin novel and my obsession with romance novels began.
I never even thought of blogging until my boyfriend brought up the subject. I was going on and on about a novel and I could tell the conversation was going in one ear and out the other. Finally he mentioned that maybe I should start blogging. I just wanted to read. But then I thought, maybe I could do something positive to help others while reading. I’m so glad I listened. Blogging has not only given me a great hobby but also introduced me to fellow book lovers and some really amazing authors. There is satisfaction in knowing I’m helping an Indie author promote their novels.
I love to inspire others to read whether it be young or old, I’m always trying to push that reading button.
My 10-year-old nephew loves to read, I like to think I’ve had a helping hand in his slight obsession. When he was in the third grade he was reading at a seventh grade reading level. He called me up one day just to brag about going to the middle school library to check out books.
I also started blogging because I love to learn new things and blogging is definitely a new thing for me. I’ve learned a lot when it comes to computers through blogging. I had no idea so much went into writing a simple post.
Every day is a lesson.
One of my favorite things to post is bookish memes. I love seeing what others are reading with WWW Wednesday and seeing everyone’s favorites with Top Ten Tuesday.
Every day brings something new!

Peace Love and Happy Reading,
