Blogger Positivity: Pt 5

Zoe N. | December 11, 2015 | Features

This is the last week of Jillian’s campaign, and for this post we’re focused on a reflection of everything we’ve enjoyed and learned about the past few weeks.

Five brief tips / advice / messages I learned through this campaign

  1. Comment, comment, comment!
  2. ARCs and page views are not everything.
  3. The book blogging community is one of the most supportive and kind communities out there.
  4. Be yourself – don’t try and conform your blog to be like “everyone else’s.”
  5. How much of an impact books can have on us.

Four things I enjoyed in the campaign

  1. Meeting so many incredible new bloggers! β™₯
  2. All the amazing posts everyone put up and how inspiring and positive they all were.
  3. The letters we sent to our buddies at the end.
  4. THE POSITIVITY!

Three favorite BPC posts

  1. Aila’s letter to Percy Jackson
  2. Things Lara wished she knew before she started blogging
  3. Jess’ letter to her local library

Two bloggers that inspired me through their posts

  1. Nuzaifa
  2. Wren

One inspirational (bookish) quote to conclude the recap

β€œSome day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” ― C.S. Lewis

  1. I’m so happy you took part in this!! Jill is amazing to have organised this event.I read your other BCP posts, and I love your letter to Annabeth!! Nuz was definitely inspiring, too. My only regret is that I couldn’t participate in this myself! Exams are the worst πŸ™ But it was fun keeping up with the posts, and I love the positivity it spread! πŸ˜€

  2. I already read your posts before this campaign, but it was so cool to read all the positive things you had to say over the past few weeks!! I’m sad this is over, but thank you for mentioning my post!!

  3. What a sweet campaign! I’m checking out some of the posts you linked here. I found the blogging community is so amazing and supportive, and it’s one of the best things about blogging!

    1. Thank you Alyssa! πŸ™‚ Commenting is so important, and I definitely agree that it kickstarted my blogging experience as well. <3

  4. Ahhhh I LOVE that CS Lewis quote. XD It’ll forever be one of my favourites. hehe. And yesss, your first 5 tips are amazing and totally spot on. *nods* We bloggers should never underestimate the power of just being friendly and talking to other bookworms. I’ve enjoyed your posts, Zoe! πŸ˜€

  5. I really wish I’d been able to participate in the campaign! I’m so glad y’all enjoyed it though and amazed by the positivity that it really helped foster as promised. I love the tips/messages you listed, Zoe! They’re so important to remember. πŸ™‚

  6. I really enjoyed reading the posts during that campaign, it was a great event! I wish I could have participated but sadly, it wasn’t the good time to do it, because EXAMS EVERYWHERE! Anyway, your five tips are totally essential when you’re blogging! I’ll catch up with the post I didn’t read yet πŸ˜‰

  7. Your 5 tips are the best! πŸ˜€ Basically everything in this post is just awesome and couldn’t have said it better myself! *sighs* I love the book blogging world! Great posts, Zoe! πŸ™‚

  8. THAT QUOTE! I adore it! And I think this was such a nice event. I wish I’d been in a better frame of mind when it started so I could participate, but I loved reading everyone else’s posts! The positivity is what makes this community so fabulous.Sure there are moments of unrest, but overall, it’s so welcoming and loving- and passionate about books!

  9. Your tips are great! One of the first things I noticed when I started blogging was how nice the community was. And it can be so easy to get overwhelmed when it seems like everyone else is doing something differently, but being yourself is what will make you happiest in the end.

    Also, I looked at your about page, and I also used to do gymnastics, AND I loved performing in school shows (and circus arts)! How funny that we have so many of the same passions πŸ™‚
