What is the Meaning of This?! BBAW: Day 3

On this Day 3 of BBAW, we’re asked, “What does book blogging mean to you?” Since these days I’ve been feeling like this…

my emotions

…that’s a difficult question to answer. I pretty much left it until right now to come up with something.

I can sum it up in three words:

Creativity, Passion, and Unity

  • Creativity. I’ve always been a person who needs a creative outlet or I go a little crazy. Book blogging has given me a place to express myself. This blog is me but it’s a different me than the one I usually show the world. It’s the kooky inner bookworm that no one but my husband sees. Aren’t you all lucky?! HAHAHA! Sometimes when I think about who might be reading this blog, I get a little freaked out but somehow I still manage to post every week.
  • Passion. So, I’m a big book nerd. Yeah, I said it. You heard (read) it. Who but a book nerd can get excited over a biography of Alexandre Dumas’s Dad? Chances are if you are reading this you are one too.
  • Unity. I guess I could have said Community but I like Unity better because you don’t have to be part of the book blogging community to be united by books. If you love books and want to talk about them, you are part of this book world.

This is probably not all I could say about book blogging but it’s what I’m going to leave you with today. Happy Reading!


  1. I think you summed it up quite splendidly!

  2. Unity is an excellent descriptor! I am glad when weeks like this bring that concept to the fore. It occasionally gets lost when there is a lot of drama!

  3. Oh I love the word "unity"! Wish I'd thought of it!

  4. Well said! And it's nice to have a community where others understand our book nerd-ness.

  5. Perfect post, I love it :) I'm with you and I think being a book nerd is the most fantastic thing to be!

  6. I hear you on that husband being the only person, even if in my case it's a boyfriend, same thing :D Loving your use of "unity". It doesn't matter what our individual tastes are, our basic love of books keeps us together.

  7. I am glad to meet so many book crazy people like me and book blogging has made my reading more intense!

    BBAW: Meaning of Book Blogging

  8. Wonderfully put!!!! I love the idea of Unity as opposed to Community. Great choice!

  9. Nicely said! Also, my inner super-nerd likes that your three-word summary abbreviates to "CPU." As in computer. As in the thing we use to do all this book-blogging stuff. :-D

  10. I like the way you put your meaning! Found your blog via twitter. I write a children's book blog. It's: www.storytimebooks.wordpress.com. Feel free it check it out if you'd like. I'll be back to visit your blog!

  11. I waited until the last minute and came up with something completely rambling - you waited until the last minute and came up with this wonderfully organized post! How is that fair? ;)

    I love what you had to say - and the picture at the top made me laugh.

  12. Three perfect adjectives describing it all....awesome!!

    To me blogging is all about the wonderful bloggers who make it happen.

    Stop by to see my post if you like.

    Have a fun day.

    Silver's Reviews

  13. Bonus points for having a Community animation!

  14. I chose 10 words and they were different from these but I love these too! I am actually not very creative in real life but I'm learning to be more creative through my blog.

  15. Great words, Chris. Creativity is indeed part of book blogging. I used to be creative coming up with features and competitions, but not at the moment. But writing a good review takes a lot of creative input, too. It can be quite hard at times.

  16. Great post! I think this sums it up beautifully. And I relate strongly to what you said about craving a creative outlet.
