When I first decided to create my website, I couldn't decide what to name it. I wanted this site to be distinguishable from other blogs, so I decided to use a word that resonated with me.
One day, while I was reading a novel from a Scottish author, I ran into the word "aze." Upon searching its meaning, I discovered that aze is Scottish slang for "a blazing fire." I knew immediately that this would be what I'd name my blog. What better word to describe my passion for literature and writing?
When family and friends ask my why literature is so important to me, I give them all the same answer. Books make me happy. Whenever I start a book, I devour it. Before I've finished it, I've already decided what I'll read next.
Even though I love books and reading, I've realized that I could use my passion for books to do more than just read. I want to share this passion with other readers, and with this platform, I have the opportunity to do that.
AZE is a forum where I share my thoughts and ideas. Creating this blog has allowed people to get to know me, but through it, I also have the chance of connecting with other readers.
This is a place where readers can share books they have enjoyed, talk about their favorite authors, and discuss their thoughts.
I encourage all of you to share and chat with me and other readers through the comment section or on Instagram @theazereads.
Let's start a conversation and build something great.
