Beyond the Books is a weekly meme hosted by KissinBlueKaren.com which gives bloggers topics (mostly non-bookish) to discuss about. This is a fun way of learning more about each other. Check out her blog for the schedule of topics.
This week’s topic is:
Do people in your real life know you blog?
Only a few people in my “real life” know about my blog. These are my family and close friends. Since my blog is primarily about books I don’t know that many people that read as much as I do or read the same genres. When I first started my blog I was really excited and shared the news with a lot of people. But after getting so many confused or uninterested reactions I decided to only share my blog with booklovers.
My husband and daughters support me and understand that blogging takes time. They are occupied with their own interests (like video games or reading) so I do have guilt free “me” time to read and blog. Since my daughters also read we often tell each other when we find a really good book, so it’s great to have this connection with my teenagers.
Now it is your turn. Do people in your real life know about your blog?
