So here goes my first belated #BookBlogWriMo post.
On an early September day in 2013, I decided that I wanted to start a blog… named “Bubbella” (don’t even ask me why).
This was my header throughout all three blog names.
After about a month, I changed it to “It’s Ellen” (though the URL was itselleen).
Later on, it turned into “FrmEllen”.
So I changed the blog name a lot. And that did not go well. I’m not a lifestyle blogger, and I couldn’t really blog about anything special. It just wouldn’t flow. So after over half a year of aimless blogging, I decided to make a change. A huge change.
At the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014, I started to read lots of books. This was the first time I’ve read so much in such a short period of time. I read book after book after book, and discovered my love for reviewing these lovely (not all of them were lovely, though) reads. So I uploaded my first book review on May 5th 2014, pre-blogchange. The review was of Stephanie Perkins’ debut novel, Anna and the French Kiss (reviewed here).
It was so much fun! I don’t know why, but rambling on and on about what I loved so much about the book make me want to read even more, (despite it being exam period, hushhh). So I guess you can guess what the change was; I changed from an amateur lifestyle blogger, to a book blog! And dare I say, that’s the best thing I’ve ever done.
The new blog name would be “Little Big Library” and I would be reviewing my most recent reads.
Despite posting many reviews under this name, I was never really satisfied with it. So I kept on trying to think of a new name that would represent me, and my book addiction.
After 5 months, I came across an available URL, perfect for me; The Wanderlust Reader
The meaning behind this name is simple; I love travelling. I’m constantly wanderlust, and when I read, I feel like I can travel into another world and escape this reality for a few pages. And that is the most wonderful feeling.
I’m currently working on the header for this new name. I’m counting on finishing it this week. Here’s a sneak peek 😀
