Hello, all! I’m back with another Thursday’s Thoughts, which is my discussion series.
I while ago I had an interaction with a fellow blogger that led me to question how old a book blog has to be in order to be considered new. I took to Twitter to ask: when does a book blog stop being new? I got a wide variety of answers, but only from a few people. Therefore, I wanted to extend the question to my blog and get more thoughts from you all. When does a book blog stop being new?
To me, I always considered anything under a year to be new. There are amazing book blogs that have been up in running for three to four or more years, and I wouldn’t put myself in the same category when my blog was only five months old. Six months was an answer that I got a lot from my friends on Twitter. That answer makes sense as well. You’ve had half a year to get your blog up and running, and you know the ropes.
Ultimately, one of my friends said, you just know. Whenever the time feels right, you’ll know when your blog is no longer new. I don’t think there’s a right, one-size-fits-all answer to this question. I think one year or lower is new, but in the end it makes sense that the time frame will differ from blogger to blogger. Every blogger’s journey is different and set to a different time frame. That’s part of what makes book blogging so unique.
Definitely share your thoughts on my thoughts (haha) and your thoughts on the topic in the comments below. What do you consider to be new? Does how long a blog’s been running matter to you? I look forward to engaging in all of the lovely discussion. As always…
Happy reading, happy writing, and happy blogging!
