Over a month ago, I started a book blog called Sultry, Steamy Reading. For all intents and purposes, I really did want the blog to grow in readership. I wanted to be a part of an online community whose members liked the same kinds of books I read.
For those who don’t know me too well, I love to read. I could stay up the whole night reading. I could finish one entire book in a night’s worth of reading. However, I consider reading my escape and stress reliever after all those hours of working hard and being in front of a computer. Therefore, I read mostly romance novels. I mean, I like all kinds of books, but the romance genre has given me what I look for when I’m lying in bed and still awake way past my bedtime. It has given me a kind of satisfaction that I haven’t found in other genres.
That’s what I wanted for SSR. I wanted to find a group of book bloggers who read similar books as I do. I would say that I am halfway successful in getting the blog out. The twitter account I created for it has been getting messages and favorites from published authors. Its followers consist of authors, book tour companies, and other book bloggers. The blog stat is good. There’s still a long way to go, but it’s pretty good for me right now.
Which brings us to this moment. I realized that I may need another book blogger to share the blog with. There are just so many books to read out there and I won’t be able to keep up. At this rate, I’d be so behind that the books I put up won’t be new books anymore. I wish I had friends who were also into the romance genre as I am and also into blogging as I am. I also wish I’d meet a new friend online, and that we’d click, and we can set up SSR together.
Oh well, if you happen to come by this blog and read this and know of someone, please do refer them to me. I’d really like to expand my horizons, and I’m looking forward to meeting fellow book geeks.
