Follow Friday #35

This Weeks Follow Friday Question:
What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online attention, or maybe something very different?
In the very beginning my goal for this blog was just to blog about books I have read, to find new books, help others find a new book to fall in love with, and to have a place in a community where people understood me. All those goals have happened, thankfully, and I couldn't be happier. Now that I like to consider this as one of my professions, since this is what I love to do, I try and create a very professional image for myself. I am going to the University of Michigan to hopefully one day become an editor or a publisher. That is my big dream. Honestly if I can get paid to work in one of the publishing houses as anything to do with young adult I will be happy. So now I hope to accomplish a sense of professionalism with this blog and to also accomplish creating connections with readers, authors, and publishers. I want to be able to have connections so that when I graduate I hopefully have an easier time getting a job since I can prove I have a passion for books and can professionally work with them. 
Right now this is just for fun, but with hopes that it will end up helping me in the future. If all this blog turned out to be was to help me get ahead I would stop blogging today, because I only blog because of my love of reading. If you don't have the passion, why do it? Honestly creating this blog was the best decision I ever made.
