Summer Blogger Promo Tour Week 4: The Book Bratz
Today is the 4th week of the Summer Blogger Promo Tour and I'm excited to have the hosts of the tour stopping by to talk about blogging with their best friend!
Hey there! We're Amber and Jessica, co-bloggers and longtime friends over at The Book Bratz. Mariah invited us over here today to do a guest post on what it's like to blog as best friends! We've known each other since Kindergarten and have been blogging together for the past two years - so we have a lot of fun experiences that we're excited to talk about.:)
I think the fact that Amber and I are friends outside of the internet realm helps the blog tremendously. Our blogging relationship doesn't solely exist through texting and Twitter - every morning, I'll check stuff going on at the blog, and then instead of having to text Amber about it, we can have a discussion about it face to face. We get more done that way. We also get to go to book events such as BookCon together, go shopping for giveaway stuff for the blog, and just grow and learn about blogging with one another! It's a totally different experience when the person you work with is somebody that you know beyond blogging. Being known as "those two nerdy girls who run some sort of internet thing" is always fun, too. xD No matter where Amber and I may be - school, work, out to dinner, a college fair, sitting at home, or even junior prom - we find time to discuss the blog and giveaways and all of that fun stuff. There's never a time where we're together and don't talk about The Book Bratz one way or another.
I am not a calm person. I get ranty, and pissed off. No one else understands the blog stuff so she talks me down from it. It has bought us closer together as friends and I know that when we go away to college we won't loose contact with each other. with ARCs we just drop them off to each others houses, and now that Jessica drives she likes to scare my brother into thinking she is going to kidnap him. Most of out actually free time is wrapped up in the blog now, so she is always leaving notes on my posts to fix things. She might as well be sitting right next to me. The Book Bratz would not be running if it wasn't for Jess!
So, those are our thoughts on what it's like to blog together! If you're considering finding a co-blogger, it's definitely the way to go. Not only do you have someone on board to help you with the workload, but you get to share fun experiences together, too!
We'd like to thank Mariah for having us today and we hope that you all enjoy the rest of the Summer Blogger Promo Tour! Come stop by our blog sometime and leave a comment - we'd love to talk to you. For now, another huge thank you to Mariah and we hope you all check back here every Sunday to meet more awesome bloggers!
Amber & Jessica are both high school girls and longtime good friends. They started The Book Bratz back in 2014 and spent all of their free time reading and fangirling about books. Some of their favorite activities include reading, writing, sleeping, eating, and texting (duh). Today, The Book Bratz and its followers have grown tremendously and they’re super excited to be the co-hosts of the 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour!
