Today’s topic is going “beyond the blog”: monetizing, writing reviews at other places, invitations to events, etc.
I haven’t done anything beyond my blog except for recently getting approved to review books from NetGalley. That’s really exciting but at the same time a little nerve-wracking as now there are people expecting a review. And of course, if they have such confidence in their work, they want to see a good review.
I think it would be great to get my reputation to the point where people would seek me out. I would love to have the opportunity to be invited to special events because of what I write. And I’d rather get the recognition for my reviewing before making money off of it. Primarily, this is still a blog for pleasure, though. And I enjoy writing about books and meeting other bloggers. I would never want it to feel like a chore.
