Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question: What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online attention, or maybe something very different?That's a really good question. To be honest, I had to think about it. When I initially started thinking about using my old blog as a book blog I was already reviewing on Goodreads. Since I was already doing a portion of the work of a blog I thought "Why not?"
I wanted to focus on strong female heroines when I started blogging. My favorite features to write are my Breakdown of a Heroines. Honestly I wish I could do them more often. But not every character is a great heroine and not even every heroine jumps out at me like that. Normally they have something special, not just amazing fighting abilities. I wanted to talk about how being a heroine is more than just an ability to fight and highlight books with exceptional examples.
I do like to write, but wanting to write books has absolutely nothing to do with my blogging. Except for occasional mentions I try to keep my personal writing and my book reviewing separate. I review because I genuinely love reviewing, not because I want people to see my reviews and think "I want to read a book by that girl." (As for my story writing, it's currently not actually happening. Though I'm currently searching for a NanoWriMo idea).
My degree is in journalism. Currently I'm not working in any type of journalism/writing field, so I see blogging as a way to keep writing. It's a very different style of writing from the newspaper journalism I studied, but it's writing. Blogging let's me keep writing.
I know that's a long-winded answer. I don't hope to accomplish just one thing with my blog, but a lot of things.
