The History of Beneath the Jacket Reviews
I have been reading some YA book blogs for a couple of years now. I have been a big fan of books and reading for awhile, so I would check out these books in order to find new books to read that I may not have heard of before. This was also around the time that I discovered Goodreads and realized just how addicting that could be. While I did enjoy writing as well, I was a bit unsure about starting my own blog. I worried that I would not be able to keep up with it, and that no one would want to read what I write (I feel that this is probably a pretty common fear for people when it comes to creating their blog).
I thought more and more about it as time passed, but it still took me awhile before I was ready to jump in and create a blog myself. It was in February of this year that I decided I was going to give it a go. What was the worst that could happen, after all? It took a couple of days to come up with a name, get it up and running, and have it looked pretty nice. It was on February 4th that my first post went live, and I was so excited about all of it.
Since then, I feel like my blog has evolved a lot. I jumped right into a ton of blog tours at first, and got myself completely overwhelmed with them. Then I was able to calm down on that, but I'm to a point now where I need to start signing up for a few more. I need to find a good in between on that still. I have enjoyed doing several weekly memes, and even coming up with my own weekly ideas. I have reviewed many books, most of which I have really enjoyed. Overall, I would say that my blogging experience has been great so far.
I don't spend too much time worrying about my blog stats at this point. I know that I'm still pretty early in, having about nine months under my belt, and more followers and views will come over time as I continue to post. Last month I did have a new blog design made, and I am thrilled with the visual change on the blog. Overall, I am very happy with where my blog has gone in the first nine months, and I cannot wait to see what happens with it in the future.
