If you read my post about why I don’t use Goodreads then you would know that I used to be an active reviewer there, but I stopped a few months ago.
Then, a few weeks ago, I felt bored, and I just finished a book I really wished I could review to others, but of course, I didn’t have any platform to review on. So that was when The Nerdy Novelty was born. I was fairly familiar with WordPress already because a lot of my Goodreads friends had blogs I followed!
Starting this blog was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. While posting can be a little bit time consuming, it’s extremely fun, and I can finally get all my bookish thoughts out!

I haven’t even blogged for a month yet, so I don’t really think I’m qualified to give advice, but whatever.
- Add a follow widget. For some reason it really bothers me when blogs don’t have follow buttons that are easily accessible. I would strongly suggest putting the button in an obvious place, and well, having one.
- Get yourself out there. Especially for other noobs at being a blogger like me, I would recommend following others. It’s a really great way for others to find your blog, and a way to make new friends.

That’s only 5, not 15 people, but I have homework to do and linking blogs is a tedious process. XD Apologies if you’ve already been nominated!
