I was tagged by the lovely Val @ Innocent Smiley on the Initial Impressions Tag, created by Val, Holly, Shannon, Amber. Thanks so much for the tag! The point of this tag is to pick a couple of bloggers and share your first impressions of them. This is going to be so much fun!
1. Choose a couple of bloggers that you remember your first impression of from when you first started following them or discovered their blog!
2. Talk about your first impression of them! And whether your impression of them has changed!
3. Tag tag tag! You can also tag the bloggers you wrote about as well.
4. Don’t forget to thank the person who tagged you!
Melanie @ YA Midnight Reads
When I was a year into blogging and I was looking for blogs to follow, YA Midnight Reads stuck out to me. I loved all of Melanie’s posts for her honesty and her fun snarky personality that really came through in her posts! I think she was one of the first Aussie bloggers who I noticed received ARCs from publishers. I really look up to Mel and her awesome camaraderie with her two co-bloggers, Celine and Larissa and she inspired me to look for my own co-blogger. Most of all, I was super impressed that Mel was only 13 at the time! ILY little Mel <3
Amir @ Not So Literary
Amir is my oldest blogging friend. She commented on my FIRST EVER post ranting about Fifty Shades of Gray! We’ve been blogging together since the start, just over 3 years ago. I visited Amir’s blog every now and then and back then had no idea about commenting back lol. Amir is so amazing, supportive, totally gorgeous and I love her maturity when it comes to blogging, life and travelling. This girl would support you to no ends. We’ve both come a long way since then and just entered the booktubing world together! <33
Faye @ The Social Potato
This blogging powerhouse is one of my dearest blogging friends. The Social Potato sparked my interest when it first started – it was so full of personality, such a variety of content and fun posts! What I really respected back then was the amount of followers and content she had – she had a loyal follower base who commented on her posts regularly. Faye never fails to amaze me with her creativity in her post, her heartfelt and emotional reviews and the way she brings a blogging community together. So much love for Faye and her co-bloggers, Rashika and Aimee xoxo
Bec @ Readers in Wonderland
I first got to know Bec on her own blog, Ransom Reads which is now closed. I loved her fun reviewing style with gifs and the way she broke down a book! Also her love and passion for animals and horses. We have a lot in common with our mutual love for fantasy novels, Phoenix Wright and Professional Layton. After chatting for a while, Bec and I met in person at a book bloggers/ tumblr meetup along with Chiara. We go to every bookish event there is together in our city. The rest we say, is history. Lots of love, Bec <33
Kelly @ Diva Booknerd
Kelly, what can I say about this hilarious snarky individual? I first came to know Kelly through the David Estes Street Team, along with Dre. We actually inspired her to start a blog, and I’m very proud of how far she’s come! Kelly has been a great support for me and I really enjoy her humour and talking to her. She never fails to help out and chip in when you need it and I’m always in awe by hard she works – for Aussie YA Bloggers, for authors, and for other bloggers. Also her graphic design is amazing. xoxoxo.
I tag all of those mentioned above along with:
