There are obvious reasons why someone would set up a website and/or blog. Exposure, a chance to talk about something you love and having fun all play into it. One issue I have with blogs for books or movies or anything really is that everything is generally focused on the one topic. That might sound a little stupid because a website about book is expected to be about books and a website on movies is expected to deal with movies, but I want to include everyone in this. I want to converse with people who are in various professions, including ones outside of writing and books, because most people read and most of those people aren’t actually involved in the literary industry. Also, inspiration can be drawn from anywhere and certainly a lot of the people I look up to and who spur me on aren’t writers or agents at all but actors, professional golfers, entrepreneurs and just people I see and meet everyday.
So I want to be inclusive. That also stands for age. Whether you are eight or eighty, I hope that you will be able to sit down and enjoy my blog and take something away from it. Reading has become something that transcends age boundaries and divides, especially since the Harry Potter series was written by J.K. Rowling. It’s acceptable for an adult to read a children’s or YA book and vice-versa (the only exception to this might be for children reading some adult books as the vocabulary, language and plot might be a little advanced or inappropriate for their age).
My plan is to write four pieces of content a week, any more would just be pointless and overbearing on both readers and myself. These posts will be written over a variety of topics such as book reviews, interviews and my own writing story though there are other ideas I’m currently considering. I hope this will be as fun for you to read as it is for me to write. If you do have any suggestions on what topics you might like me to discuss or write about, or just have a random thought, (I get a lot of them so they’re all welcome) then please feel free to comment in the section below.
Thank you for reading!
