I used to be really engaged with book blogging, for a few reasons that fell by the wayside; at the time I worked with organisations that frowned on social media use. Social media demands trust , something many organisations find very difficult. I also just kind of lost motivation.
Memes were a bit of a thing in the book blogging community and while I never really got into the whole meme thing in a big way, I did participate in some, mostly those related to reading challenges. While Gumtrees and Galaxies is about more than books, books will always be a big part of my life and aware that my ability to come up with new content is sometimes challenged by my own mood, I thought I might start my own meme, just for fun. If anyone would like to join me in this weekly task they are more than welcome to do so and to leave a link in the comments to their own post, whether it be on a blog, Instagram, Facebook or whatever platform they like, I would really love to see what other people would post. I am always curious about what other people are reading. As someone who will read anything and everything, everyone is welcome to share their thoughts on any book here. So the new weekly meme I am starting is Book snap Sunday. I must admit that I have admired beautifully constructed images on Instagram, especially those images artfully displaying books, #bookstagram is one of the # I have regularly perused and used myself. I am not great at photography, I only use the camera on my phone but I do have great respect and admiration for those who do create amazing images. So partly as a little creative goal for myself I have decided to start Book snap Sunday, where one day a week I will post a book photo, initially to Instagram, using the # bookstagram or any other relevant # plus: #booksnapSunday, if anyone would like to join me please feel free to do so, I would love to see what creative images featuring books, others would come up with, if you do join in please leave a comment and link so I can check it out. So starting today, I am going to do a Book snap Sunday post each week, for the fun, creativity and the discipline of a weekly commitment.
This weeks book snap was taken at Springbluff and features the delightful novel Meet me at the Museum, post on that soon.
