I have thrown my hat in the ring for the ‘Words and Writing’ category of the Best Australian Blogs Competition run by the Australian Writers’ Centre. Voting for the People’s Choice Round opened today.
Since starting this website in 2009 I’ve come to realise I enjoy writing about books almost as much as I enjoy reading them. This site and the book blogging community more generally has broadened my reading tastes and become a much valued creative outlet for me.
It is interesting for me to reflect upon how my writing style has developed over the years (hopefully for the better) as the scope of my leisure reading has broadened and my website readership has grown.
In addition to being an outlet for my own creative expression, in hosting the Aussie Author Challenge for the last five years on Booklover Book Reviews I’d like to think I have in my own small way helped promote the vast and too often unappreciated talent within the Australian writing community.
Although only Australian blogs can enter the competition, anyone across the globe can vote for their favourite Australian blogs.
If you find value in the content on Booklover Book Reviews and the contribution I’ve made to the discussion on books and reading via this website, here is an opportunity to vote for me.
