Feature & Follow Hop #1



Provo a partecipare a questa rubrica per qualche periodo perché sono una grande ammiratrice di Rachel, aka Parajunkee. Questo Follow Hop è ospitato da Parajunkee e Alison Can Read. Visitate i loro fantastici blog!

La domanda di questa settimana è… quali sono i buoni propositi per il blog nel 2013?

La domanda è più difficile del previsto, semplicemente perché un fino a qualche mese fa (cavoli, fino a qualche ora prima del lancio) non credevo avrei mai veramente trovato il coraggio di aprire un blog. E invece eccomi qui! Ci sono milioni di miliardi di propositi che vorrei elencare, primo tra tutti quello di diventare una blogger brava la metà delle colleghe che tanto ammiro, ma ho deciso di scrivere solo un proposito:

DIVERTIRMI.

Leggo e scrivo recensioni per piacere, perché amo leggere, amo i libri e amo poter condividere le mie follie con chi mi capisce e asseconda questa mia smisurata passione, ma non è un lavoro. Non sono pagata per farlo, non ricevo libro gratis e soprattutto lo faccio nei ritagli di tempo. Non voglio sentirmi condizionata a dover leggere certi titoli solo perché 'devo' o perché sono le 'ultime uscite'. Voglio avere tempo per leggere i tanti libri che magari non ho voglia di recensire e voglio scegliere i generi e i titoli che più mi aggradano. Voglio interagire con i lettori, le blogger, gli autori e continuare a far sì che questa passione e questo hobby sia sempre divertente.

Direi che questo è il mio miglior proposito!

E voi, ne avete qualcuno? 
This is the very first time I try to take part in this Follow Hop, hosted by the fabulous Parajunkee and Alison Can Read (I strongly suggest you visit their wonderful blogs).

This week's question is: What New Years Blogging or Writing resolution have you placed on yourself?

The question is harder than I thought, simply because till a few months ago (well, actually till a few hours before my blog launched) I never thought I could work up the nerves to start my own blog. But here I am! I'm such a newbie at this but I love it. There are tons of resolutions I have put down like, for example, I hope to become half as good at this as the bloggers I respect and admire, but I decided to write down just one thing. That is…

HAVE FUN WHILE BLOGGING.

I read and write reviews like all the bloggers out there, meaning I do it because I love reading, I love books and I love sharing my opinions and my passion and my bookish craziness with those who understand me, but it's not a job, I don't get free books and I am not paid to do it. It takes time and commitment and I am struggling to find my rhythm. I love it, but I don't want to feel like I 'have to' review certain titles just because everybody does or because it's the latest release. I want to read books that maybe I'll never review, I want to choose the genres and titles I like. I want to interact with readers, bloggers, authors and I hope this passion, this hobby will always be as fun as it is right now.

That's the best I could hope for 2013!

Do you have any blogging resolutions?
