Back To School Book Blogger Challenge--Day 8: The Biggest Lesson I've Learned as a Blogger.

I've learned quite a bit as a blogger about both myself and people. There is a lot to learn while blogging--book blogging especially. 

I think the biggest thing I've learned or rather the biggest revelation I've had was when I realized I wanted to be involved in publishing, professionally, not only as a writer but possibly an editor, or a cover designer. 

I've always known I wanted to be a writer and I've always had a passionate love for books but I never thought about pursuing a career in publishing.

I may or may not have figured this out late but it's not too late. I mean I have spent about 7 years pursuing bachelor's and master's degrees in journalism--only to one day say yeah, this is not for me. Go figure!

I think I've always kind of known that I wasn't cut out or rather made to be a journalist (at least not a news journalist) but I planned on doing it anyway or at least finding my niche in the field. 

There is still a large chance I may find myself in the journalism field but rest assured I'll be working harder to find and do a job I can wake up everyday smiling about, or least mostly every day. Blogging helped me figure that out. It helped me discover talents I didn't realize I had. It helped me fine tune my dream and for that I'm grateful.

What lessons have you learned as a blogger?


  1. I kind of think that blogging just lets you know yourself more because it lets you dig deeper into your interest and discover a few more along the way. good luck with life then.. journalism is a field I've thought about myself but I don't really want to exhaust myself in writing (or maybe I'm just not passionate enough~~).

  2. The biggest thing that I've learned is to be open. In order to be a blogger, you're gonna be communicating with a lot of people, authors, readers. And if you're open to yourself about trying new things and exploring new possibilities, then your readers will open themselves up to you.

    Great Post!
