The Story of Whit Reads Lit

My blog is still pretty new, having started it in February of this year. I had thought about starting a book blog for quite a long time. I have worked in a book store for almost three years, so I am surrounded by books all day long. Talking about books is a huge passion of mine. Several of my friends are also big readers, so I would get recommendations from them of great books to read, and then once I had read and loved those books…I had no one to tell about them. Therefore, I started this blog, so that I can share all of my bookish feelings with you lovely people!!

 

Two Pieces of Newbie Blogger Advice

Again, being a bit of a newbie myself, I feel a bit odd giving out advice! But, since I must, I would say to write about what you love, and get out there and read other people’s blogs! If you aren’t writing about books and bookish stuff that you are interested in, then this blogging game is going to get old real fast! And, once I started following a lot of other book bloggers blogs (say that 5 times fast!), I started feeling more connected to this wonderful and supportive community – and I got some great post ideas too!

 

I Nominate…

Bree @ In Love & Words

Kaila @ The Traveling Inkwell

Andie @ Andrea’s Nirvana

Kay @ Hammock of Books

Kelly @ Kelly’s Rambles

 

I went with fewer than 15, because that is a heck of a lot of people. But, the people I picked are fantastic and totally deserve this award! If you have already received this award, or you don’t want to do it, you will not hurt my feelings, don’t worry 😉


Any thoughts? Musings? Complaints? (I really hope there aren’t any complaints, but I figured, if you have them, you should feel free to express them). Leave a comment below! 

 

Love and happy reading,

Hello!! My name is Whitney, and I love books! I spend a huge amount of time reading (way more time than I should, if we are being perfectly honest!) I live in Nashville with my husband and my two dogs, who are a total mess and generally are my reading buddies. I will probably share them with you, too. I also love to sing, play guitar, hike, play The Sims, watch tons of YouTube videos, and drink creamy tea and coffee.

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination again! Agh, what a cosy job you have (not saying it’s easy, I’m just seeing being surrounded by so many book as being cosy). Doesn’t matter that you’re a newbie, you gave out some really helpful advice 😀
    Keep up the good blogging! 😀 (and thanks again for the nomination! will have it up asap)
