Like to Read? Check out Reads by Amy!

I am very excited about my major project! I have a passion for reading and for a long time I have wanted to start a book blog. I just never had the time or motivation to actually do it. But our major project is the perfect excuse to finally do it!

My plan is to blog book reviews regularly, while connecting with other #booklovers on instagram and twitter. This past week I have spent some time exploring other #bookblogs and coming up with ideas for my own. After much time and consideration I decided on the title Reads by Amy. I chose this because it is simple, and the username was available on wordpress, instagram, and twitter to make it easier to connect all 3 platforms.

I have added a couple reviews on my blog in order to have some content before sharing the link with the world. I have written 3 reviews so far, and organized them into categories by genre. I even figured out how to add my instagram, twitter, and goodreads accounts to my blog page.

I thought it would be interesting to track the number of followers I have throughout the semester. Here is my starting point from week 1:

Instagram: followers-8       following-44

Blog: followers-1

Twitter: followers-0       following-3

My next step is going to be “advertising” my #readsbyamy content and connecting with others. So if you love to read be sure to check it out!

    Hey Amy … for some reason the screenshot doesn’t work for me. Does it work for others? If you can see it, maybe double-check to see if others can see it by viewing it while you are not logged into WordPress.

    Let me know … it could be a problem at my end.

      I just checked, it also wasn’t showing up on my computer at work. But on my home computer it was. I just edited the post and tried re-inserting the photo. Can you see it now?
