Huge thank you to uncovered-books for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award! Do check them out for honest and unbiased book reviews.
How KookBookery Began
Initially, I made reviews so that even long after I’ve read a book, I can look back and remember how it made me feel. I have the worst memory when it comes to books no matter how much I liked them. I wanted to organize them in one place and that is how this blog came to be.
I really wish I started this sooner. You don’t get paid for it but it certainly has its perks a.k.a. FREE BOOKS!
Meaning Behind the Name
KookBookery was taken from the following words:
No insane logic behind it, really. I just wanted something nice and catchy.
(Someone once asked me if I review cookbooks so I felt the need to explain it. Haha!)
Advice to Other Bloggers
Write as if you’re speaking to a friend. You don’t have to be the greatest writer to become a good blogger. With the number of things we can do on the internet, chances are, most people will just skim through you posts especially when it’s too technical and formal. Make your readers feel comfortable. Write in a way that will keep them interested. Be concise. We don’t have all the time in the world.
Be true to yourself and have fun. Cliché as it sounds, there’s a reason why people keep saying it. Don’t be obsessed about trying to get people to like you. Don’t say things you don’t mean just because you want it said back. Don’t sell yourself out. Do it because you want to not because you’re supposed to. Have fun. Make new friends. Fall in love (just kidding).
