Unlike most of you who may be so updated when it comes to blogging world, I can consider myself to be a latecomer in blog to read many blogs in one place (I don't know the better term for this, English is not my first language, I apologize). I used to rely on Google Reader until big G decided to retire it. I had no tool for blog reading anymore. I was stuck, but couldn't motivate myself enough to find a solution.
After some digging, I finally visit Bloglovin and so far, it works for me. So, I started following other book blogs and since I also sell on Etsy, I follow tons of craft and DIY blogs to, even though I have no intention whatsoever so try the projects. Oh, I also have fashion and beauty blogs on my reading list, too. I actually subscribe to any kind of blog I find interesting and they actually helps me in some ways:
It opens my mind to a different point of view
I saw a craft blog once that features some cool items made from used books. As a bookworm, of course it made me cringe. How on earth would anyone butcher a book into a wall art, for example. As I read the blogger's explanation that she made it from abandoned book that was almost falling apart, I can definitely see her point. It's a good thing to bring back the book to a useful condition rather than leaving it alone tearing itself apart.
