The Bright Side of Blogging

The lovely Sarah from Sarah's Random Musings has gathered some blogging brethren to talk about what we love about YA blogging. I've decided to vlog because I wanted you to be able to hear it from the horse's (or Adele's in this case) mouth.

Listen to me rattle off a list of incredible Australian YA authors!

(Apologies for the lighting. It's not the camera but the conversion to WMV that seems to smudge it up. Sorry.)

I totally agree, the people are the reason I keep on coming back and continuing to blog, even when things get hard and I feel like giving up, I go on Twitter and the immense support you get from other bloggers and authors is just so awe inspiring. I think if it wasn;t for the other bloggers and friends that i've made, I would've give up blogging a long time ago.

thanks for such a lovely vlog, I completely agree (though I have yet to meet Melina marchetta, despite the fact that I am seriously dying to). you brought up the perfect reasons, I know what you mean by being excited when you find out someone has commented on your blog :D The people in the YA blogosphere are just unreal

As a relatively new blogger I love the feel of belonging to such an awesome community.
Thanks for the great and positive post :)

I absolutely love this idea and your video was awesome. I'm kinda thinking I might do something similar soon. More positivity around the blogosphere is always needed. Plus, I agree with you- the people (other bloggers, authors, publicists, etc.) are what keep me happy and my blog alive.
