Their Tech Entrepreneurship Journey
||Blog: Her Nose Stuck in a Book|
|What was the inspiration?||I loved seeing the online communities that connected over books, and the relationships between the readers and publishers. It was always a dream of mine to work in publishing, in some form or another.|
|Why did they decide to set up their tech business?||I always wanted to find a place where I could talk freely about my interests and connect with others who love books as much as I do; so instead of waiting to find that community, I sought it out myself.|
|What does it do?
|I review books and other media content, such as movies and TV series that I really enjoy.|
|What makes it unique?||I think that what makes my site unique is my voice, and my opinions. It is about more than one type of media, and I wanted to focus, most importantly, on the power and effects of STORIES.|
|When did they decide to set it up?||I first set it up in 2018.|
|What are their future plans?
For their tech business?
|I am currently on a hiatus to focus on my last few months of my degree.
This summer I plan on rebranding and expanding my social media presence for more exposure, as well as working more on networking and setting up connections with local and international publishers.
I will also be working on my passion for writing and will be trying to incorporate that into the content I create.
And I also plan to create higher quality posts and content but will blog only a few times a month instead of every week.
