Here was I, getting lost with all the google search results when I find this article:
It’s from 2008 and they don’t focus on book blogs, but a lot of things are still true.I’ll be commenting the best bits, Okay? K? Let’s go!
According to some collected information about what their goals were, they extracted the following characteristics:
- ambitious, achievement-oriented
- interested in community
“They also appeared to be interested in learning, a bit obsessed, playful, conscious of time management, value-oriented, and to have a desire to be effective and focused.(…)As I was reflecting on this, I also wondered about characteristics not found there. Greedy, for example. Most of the bloggers I know are above-average generous”
As book bloggers, we love to have giveaways, right? And on top of that we give our opinions and help people decide if want or not to read the book, and help spread the word about new authors and titles. Aren’t we generous? LOL!
“What I noticed was that these people seemed to have a tendency to be enthusiastic, interested in personal growth, lively, perhaps even intense, open to new experiences, independent, ambitious (again), self reflective (again), introverted, expressive and early adaptors.”
Enthusiastic? ME? No…Okay, maybe! Just…sometimes. We also tend to be very chatting, am I right? ; ]
“Come to think of it, there is a strong connection between being ambitious and achievement oriented on the one hand and the desire to keep on learning on the other. It’s all about being motivated to move forward, about being unwilling to live with the status quo.”
We love learning, reading and writing. Books is what makes us feel motivaded to keep blogging! We’re ambitious cause we wanna read more than we possibly can handle. But what we expect to achieve? That’s the question I’ll leave to you, my fellow book bloggers! Leave a comment and share your opinion!
