When I started this blog my focus was on book reviews but now that it has grown, I want to share some stuff other than book reviews. Ramblings Keep Me sane is essentially about, well, ramblings. It could be book-related ramblings… or not. It’ll be like a discussion post where readers can share their opinion about anything under the sun.
Have You Ever Felt “Bored” of Your Blog?
The book blogging community is one of the most saturated communities I have seen on the internet. Five years ago only a handful of people are blogging about books but now more and more book blogs are coming up every day. The book blogging community is like the Amazon jungle, so crowded you have to reach the top to get the most amount of sunlight.
When I started this book blog my only aim was to write book reviews and maybe some book-related discussions sporadically. For a while I was contented with only posting reviews but I realized that in order to step up my game and attract more new readers and keep the old ones visiting my blog, I have to come up with something that’s unique and worth revisiting.
In the past I love reading book reviews of other book bloggers but over time I realized that there are too many book reviews to read out there and I’m sick of the same old same old book reviews, you know? (Not that posting book reviews is a bad thing but I also want to see change and to mix things up sometimes.)
Not only am I bored of only seeing book reviews on people’s blogs but I am bored of mine too! I don’t want to be just another book review blog, someone who regurgitates the same ideas and opinions about a particular book. I want my blog to be quirky and unique and cool and the “it” blog.
Have you ever had this frustration before? Have you ever felt tired and bored and sick of the same old thing?
