I’ve been pondering this for a while.
“A website. Huh. Maybe I should get one of those things.”
So much of my life is on the internet. So many great opportunities have come from my involvement on BookTube. I started making videos over two years ago and people actually watched them. In fact, almost 30,000 people watched and liked my videos enough to subscribe. THIRTY THOUSAND (almost).
So here I am… Making a website in effort to further myself in a hobby, and now part-time job, that I love beyond words. I make videos talking about books (and stuff), so why not have a website that expands my outreach?
I want my viewers to have a centered place to go besides my YouTube channel to know what’s going on in my world: what I’m reading, what I want to read, what I just bought at the bookstore, etc.
In addition to the normal book gab that’ll cram up the content of this website, I also want to modify and think outside my typical box. I’m branded as “abookaffair” and I LOVE that, but as I grow and change, my love for reading does as well. My love for LIFE grows and changes.
I will always be an avid reader. That will always be a big part of what I post. But I’m more than a reader. I’m a woman. I’m a friend. I’m a college student. I’m a worker. I’m a daughter. I’m a lover. I’m a fighter. I’m a human. I have so many other interests other than reading, and I want to start sharing those.
The stories I’ve read have shaped me and will continue to do so, but now it’s time for me to take my nose out of a book, and to share my own stories.
This website is going to be about me, and how I view the world. What I’m up to, and what I’m planning. I want this to be a place where I can connect even better with my viewers, and a place they can go to stay informed about not only my latest reads, but my latest projects and ideas.
Book lovers and friends alike, enjoy.
