Hello! Welcome to Tranquil Pages, I am Alicia owner of the page. I am currently studying Art History at the community college in my town, I have one more semester before graduating. I have been seriously thinking of transferring to a university after graduation but haven’t set it in stone yet.
Reading and art are my passion and my stress relievers. I recently started reading about two years ago, I wasn’t a big reader when I was younger but my mother made up for that. But every now and then I play video games to let out my frustration or just to team up with my friends back home.
I started this blog back in June of 2016. I have been following a lot of BookTubers on YouTube and I wanted to make a BookTube channel. I started it but found that I just didn’t have the time to edit all of the videos I had accumulated over the couple of months I started the channel. So I decided to delete all of the videos I had made including the ones on YouTube and start fresh once again, this time as a blog.
I actually like blogging better than making videos, I have been keeping up with this a lot better and it’s faster especially how my scheduling is with college. I still have my channel on YouTube but I have no videos as of now, I will be posting book related tags and maybe vlogs on my life whenever I have the time to do them. I figured that will be easier for me and easier on gaining traffic to this blog.
Do I want to get paid for reviewing books like BookTubers? As of right now, no. It’s not because I don’t have enough traffic on here and followers, it’s just I don’t see a point at the moment. I like making reviews and it’s fun, so why make a paid hobby out of it and kill the fun. Maybe in a few years, I’ll think about it. Right now it’s a no.
