I love reading and I love blogging. But even more, I love doing both of those things together! But the other day I got around to wondering: if I had to choose, which one do I love more?
I know, I know, it’s like asking to pick a favourite child. You just don’t do it! But for the sake of this post, I really wanted to force an answer out of myself… and I think I love blogging more than I love reading.
For some reason I feel like that’s something I need to whisper. It’s almost scary to admit that in front of fellow book lovers. Obviously I do LOVE to read, I just think I like blogging more. Reading is great, but it’s also a very solitary thing. Blogging is the way that I connect with other people. It’s how I share knowledge, information, and also how I fangirl and talk with fellow book lovers. I really enjoy being able to connect with people who have similar interests, and also just share my excitement or frustrations with my online friends.
Although, reflecting on that last paragraph, it’s almost weird that I’d choose blogging over reading because I’m a MASSIVE introvert. I like doing things quietly on my own… so why is it that I chose the option that’s less solitary and more community-focused? Maybe I secretly want to be more social.
