LaChouett Blogging 101: Introduce Yourself



Hello all,

So, for those who have been following my 10 day old blog you will know me as Virginie (aka LaChouett) and also know that I am a newbie at this new blogging adventure.

Like a lot of new bloggers, I have decided to enrol on the Blogging101 course offered by WordPress so that I can learn a few things.

Our instructor has given us a few pointers by given us a few questions that I will be attempting to answer in this first blogging assignments.

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?

Interestingly enough, I really did not consider a personal journal at all, it did not even enter my mind.

I launched Chouett has a means to post my reviews about the books I have read and I guess that I have an interest in sharing them, so I decided that a public platform was appropriate.

  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?

That’s a good question.  I will certainly write about books which is a pretty vast subject since they are so many genres out there, but I would also like to write about blogging as a beginner and look back on that experience a year from now.

  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?

Well, I have a real penchant for reviewing books from relatively unknown authors so connecting with them via Chouett would be great. I would also like to connect with other readers and get a few reading recommendations. Lastly, I would love to connect with other bloggers on a similar journey. At the same time, I do not want to shut myself off from any opportunities so I am quite happy to go with the flow and see where it takes me.

  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished

Hopefully, I will have read a lot more books and posted reviews on them which would have prompted others to read those books too.

I also hope that I will have learned from the all blogging experience a year on…and be still at it.

    Congratulations on your new Blog Virginie!


  3. I love the idea of the book reviews being from relatively unknown authors! Really looking forward to following them and finding some gems!


    1. Hi, The Ugly Princess and Guilt Trip were great! If you fancy reading them look them up on Goodreads and try to contact the authors. My dealing with them have been great.

    I’m a compulsive reader so it’s nice to find other readers out there. While many folks say they read, I find that most of them don’t read on the scale that I do, so often they don’t read many categories of books and as a result don’t understand why I’d be reading teen fiction, island biogeography, history of English and the back of the shampoo bottle.
