It’s Thursday again and that means I have another fabulous blogger lined up for my Meet The Blogger Series. Today’s featured blogger is Ellie from A Book Devourer whom I got to know when she took part in a recent Blog Tour I organised. As the name suggests she blogs about all things books and her Instagram page is filled with stunning bookish photos that will make any bibliophile drool! I hope you enjoy reading about Ellie’s blog and getting to know a bit more about her.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your blog
I am Merinellie and I am 19 years old from the Philippines. At first I was just part of bookstagram, a community for book lovers in Instagram, and that’s where I discovered book blogging. I post book reviews and write about anything related to books.
How long have you been blogging?
I’ve had my site A Book Devourer for a little over a year now but I’ve been on and off with blogging because of my studies. And I still have a lot of room for improvements, I haven’t really gotten the hang of it yet.
What or who inspired you to create your blog?
I always wanted to tell stories and that is what pushed me to create my blog. I wanted to share my thoughts and insights about books, characters, and life in general.
What’s your favourite thing about running your blog?
My favourite thing is that, I get to express my thoughts and rant all the way I want
How do you stay motivated?
I don’t! If I am not motivated then I stop. I don’t push myself. I just take a rest and think and let time take away whatever hinders me from doing things.
What’s been the most challenging part of your blogging journey to date?
The thought of no one reading your blog is somewhat heartbreaking. One of my other struggle too is reaching out for blog tour hosts so I can participate. I don’t have that much audience so I am quite anxious that they might not pick me.
Tell us about your favourite blog post
My favourite will be the first book review I posted, Book Review: Dying To Know You. It’s memorable.
Describe your blog in four words
honest, growing, diverse, life
What are your future hopes and dreams for your blog?
I hope that I can always bring an honest review and write something that will touch the readers heart. I hope they can find comfort in my words.
