Welcome back to Part II of our third The Pond Gets Loud collaboration series, friends!

The Pond Gets Loud is a feature where I invite book reviewers from the community to share their experiences and talk about anything related to book blogging. The overall goal of The Pond Gets Loud is to give book bloggers a voice, give book bloggers the opportunity to share their honest experiences, and promote transparency and awareness within the book blogging community.

As an international book blogger myself, this is a topic that means a lot to me and also to a lot of other international book bloggers. I hope that as a member of the book blogging community – or simply someone who is curious about the varied and diverse experiences of book blogging – this collab post will be insightful, eye-opening, and thought-provoking.

The Pond Gets Loud: The Cost of Book Blogging – What Have We Learned? [Summary]

Hello friends! A big and warm welcome back to The Quiet Pond. I hope you are all reading some delightful and exciting books.

Our most recent book blogger collaboration series explored the costs of book blogging, and how much book bloggers were spending to maintain their book blogs. As a book blogger based in New Zealand, where books are expensive, I was interested in exploring how the cost of book blogging differs across different book bloggers.

In the last few months, I asked book bloggers to share their costs of book blogging with me. In the end, 25 amazing book bloggers shared how much they spend on book blogging a month or a year and what they spend their money on.
