The Bright Side of Blogging

I started blogging about a year and a half ago. Since then, I have changed completely. Not only has blogging broadened my knowledge of everything literature related, but it also has introduced me to a much of lovely people!
In the blogging world, you can almost always find somebody who has the same obsessions as you. This has been the case for me. From Doctor Who (Sarah), David Levithan (Khy), 10 Things I Hate About You (A bunch of awesome people on twitter), The Vampire Diaries (Khy, Sarah, Catt, Mitali, Heidi, and a bunch of others), Coffee (CHELSEA!), and many more things that I love watching/doing. My blogging friends are also my beta readers for what I’m writing. They tell me if anything I write it utter crap, which is really important to do when I’m on my high horse gloating or something.
The blogging world has also brought me to meeting my some of my favorite authors and bloggers! Since starting my blog, I have met:

David Levithan
John Green
Lisa McMann
Scott Westerfeld
Sarah Reese Brennan
Heidi R. Kling
C.J. Omololu
Daisy Whitney
Cheryl Renee Herbsman
J.A. Yang
Malinda Lo
C. Lee McKenzie
Sarah Dessen
Kami Garcia
Margaret Stohl
Sarah Quigley
Carrie Jones
Alyxandra Harvey
Khy of Frenetic Reader
Alicia of Shooting Star Mag
Nancy of Ravenous Reader
And there are probably some people I am forgetting, which I’m sorry about!

The blogging world is like a family. There are the weird cousins, the sisters (or brothers), the family members you look up to, and whatever other relatives. Most of us get along with one another and help each other out. I am proud to be a book blogger. My blog is a getaway for me. There are some bloggers that I talk to on a daily basis and my life wouldn’t be the same without. If I hadn’t started blogging, I wouldn’t be reading as much as I do. I wouldn’t have read David Levithan (my all time favorite author), Sarah Dessen, and a bunch of other authors that I absolutely adore. I don’t know what I would do without this blogging world that I’m apart of. I love the people who read my blog and I love the bloggers I talk to.

I feel the same way--I've discovered so many new good reads since I started blogging! I love what you wrote about how through blogging and reading, your family grows to include other bloggers and even authors! I've read David Levithan too and he's got a unique voice. Have you ever read "Funny Boy" by Shyam Selvadurai? I think you might like him. Anyway, happy to chance upon your blog, take care!
