Hello everyone ! Today I want to discuss something that has been nagging at me for a long time : the book bloggers and the booktubers.
The first book-related social media I had was Bookstagram. I grew very fond of this awesome community. It amazes me how some people are able to take stunning shots of books. I don’t remember exactly when I changed my page to a bookstagram one but I really don’t regret it. I love taking photos of books, searching for new trinkets, new ideas etc. It really grew on me. I “met” amazing people thanks to bookstagram !
Then I created this blog after I passed my thesis because I wanted to share my reviews somewhere else than on Goodreads.Slowly I started to post other book-related stuff, such as tags, awards, TV adaptations etc. I also learned (and still am !) how to create basic adornments for my blog. I’m trying to improve my blog step by step ! I really enjoy posting here ! I also discovered an amazing community and love to read posts every day.
But I have been watching Booktube for years now. In fact, it was my very first glimpse of the bookish community. And I’ve always wanted to start a booktube channel. In fact, my blog was supposed to be the first step before creating my channel. (and now I can’t imagine NOT posting here haha !)
There were two things that refrained me :
- the camera (and I still need to buy a fancy one, and it’s not just for booktube)
- my French accent
Now, there is another thing : the fact that I don’t know if I’ll have time to do everything : taking photos for instagram, writing blog posts and recording videos. It seems impossible ! And even though I would really like to own a booktube channel, I don’t want to neglect my blog nor my bookstagram page !
What about you ? Do you post on other social medias ? If so, how do you manage to do everything ?
