Okay guys. The truth is out…
I love the blogging community.
You may ask, “Halee, was that really a secret? The blogging community is awesome.” And it is. But I just feel like I don’t say it enough.
I love the blogging community. I’ve been a part of it for the better part of 4 years, and I’m absolutely in love with it. Not only have I been able to communicate with so many amazing authors throughout the yearS, I’ve also met so many people that I now consider friends.
This community has been there for me during some of my roughest times. It’s gotten my mind off of my crippling depression in the past and will continue to do so. This community embraced me with open arms when my grandma passed away in February. It’s been with me through the hardest but most rewarding years of my life, and I love it.
However, recently, I’ve seen a lot of negativity bubbling in the community, whether it was about people, authors, books, whatever. It made me really sad because the majority of this community is so great.
So, I decided to start a project, and possibly common feature, on my blog to promote positivity and celebrate this (excuse my language) fucking great community.
This project, called the Book Blogger Positivity Network, will allow all of us to get to know more bloggers and discuss bookish things. What’s not to love?
For my very first BBPN, I’ve asked Reg from She Latitude to let us get to know her and why she thinks positivity is essential to the book blogging community.
