Let’s Talk Bookish – Online Persona & Book Blogging

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, created and hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.

You can find more details about it here.

This week is the first time I take part in this meme but it’s also a freebie, which means we can talk about whatever we want! I thought I would catch up by talking about the topic last week about online persona and book blogging.

I really don’t pretend to be someone else on this blog because I consider it as my little space on the internet where I can just say whatever I like. It happens that I love talking about books and that’s not something I often get the chance to do in my daily life. I guess that when you have a big following, you have to ask yourself more questions about privacy and really put boundaries in your content. But in my case, I think it’s fine and I don’t share that much anyway, I think. Although I have to admit that there are things that I would love to share here but that I choose to keep for myself. I am a little afraid of the potential repercussions it could have so I keep it silent… for now, at least. (I should precise that it’s nothing bad, it’s just a professional project!)

I mainly write about books here of course, but I would certainly like to talk about other things in the future like mental health, and work too. Again, this is more of a space for me to share whatever’s on my mind so I don’t want to put too many limits on the topics I want to talk about. But to be honest reviewing books is such an incredible occasion to tackle so many issues and topics – book blogging is probably the less restrictive of blogging types!

The main thing for me is to be more daring with this blog, more daring to be me. I touched on this topic when I talked about writing, but I tend to always doubt myself and end up never saying anything. So Balivernes is part of a bigger work that I’m doing on myself to be more confident and happier – things that I used to be but lost in recent years. So instead of creating an online persona, I am on a journey to find myself again and display my personality fully without worrying of what some might think.
