Behind the Blogger | Book Tag

Hey everyone! I was tagged by Shreeya from Absorbed in Books to do this tag, so let’s get into it! This feels more like the interview question “tell me something about yourself.” A question that I particularly dislike but giving this a go anyway.

This tag is created by Ellyn of allonsythornraxx.

So, here goes!

Behind the Blogger

Pink Line

1. Why did you start blogging and why have you kept blogging?

Starting a blog was a whim, really. During my university days, one day as I sat waiting for my group mate to finish his work so that we can consolidate the project, I typed out a story that I had written in my school days. I wanted the world to read my work so I made a blog and the rest is history.

In case, you’re wondering, this is the post I published. My first ever post; Excellence at Work.

This was not the blog I started blogging with. It was Lair of a Wordsmith. The basic reason for that blog to exist was for me to share my stories with the world. The idea of people reading my stories is what kept me blogging.

With the passage of time, I added a lot of other stuff on the blog and then to keep all things bookish separate, I created another blog. This one. Hina Loves To Read.

Even today, what keeps me going, as far as blogging, it is the fact that I love knowing that people out there are reading my words.
