Blogger Recognition Award

I was nominated by Er from Literary Tea with ER a really long time ago and never wrote a post about it. Like so long ago, that they just recently nominated me for another blog reward! I'm such a procrastinator! So anyway here is my post for the Blogger Recognition Award. A huge thanks to ER for nominating me. It's always nice to see that other people actually care about my blog!

The Rules:
-Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
-Write a post to show your award.
-Give a brief story of how your blog started.
-Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
-Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.-Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them & provide the link to the post you created. Okay to be honest I'm probably just going to cheat and @ them all on twitter since that seems to be the most efficient way to do it. 

How I Started Deanna Reads Books (AKA Deanna Reads AKA Deanna Writes)

So you are probably wondering about all the AKAs. blog has kinda shifted a lot in the 3 years since I started it. It first started as a way to showcase and talk about my plans for the books I am working on, which I haven't looked at for two years. I got pretty depressed about my writing and I kinda of gave up on it so the blog shifted to just being a book review blog, and I changed the name twice and the URL once. I'm trying to get back into writing, because I'm actually more depressed now and I'm not really happy with where my life is right now. I just have to try to see if I can actually do this thing, but that's another story. 

My Advice:

1. Don't get caught up in the numbers game. If this is something you do FOR FUN let it be fun and don't freak out if you don't get comments on every single thing you post.

2. Again on the fun thing. Read what ever you want and review whatever you want, not just what is popular.
