6 Reasons Why You Should Join Wattpad.

So yeah. most of you knows here I write at WATTPAD and that's where I got discovered and now became a published writer. No matter how other people view wattpad badly, I want you all to know how wattpad became the tool for some of our dreams to come true and how it helped other aspiring writers in having the start of their 'career'.

Wattpad is a writing community in which users are able to post articlesstoriesfan fiction, and poems, either online or through the mobile app. This gives people the chance to have their creative works available to a wider audience. The content includes work by undiscovered writers, published writers, new writers, with all users being given an equal chance to write popular works. Users are able to comment and like stories or join groups associated with the website.  - Wikipedia

I have been a user of WATTPAD since 2011 and it happened because of a funny reason. My PC is running out of memory for my drafts. Then I stumbled upon wattpad because of a fan fiction made by a user about DAMON and BONIE. So yeah. I learned how it works a bit then posted my drafts there. I have the access of my stories everywhere I have internet. And it's funny that I doesn't really know how it really works. I just learned that I already have 2k fans (it's called followers now) and so on and so forth. 

And as an avid user of Wattpad, here are the six reasons why I think you should too!

1. It's Free! 

It has no membership fee whatsoever. No hidden charges. Juts click the SIGN UP sign and join! Joining is also easy, just like joining any other social media website. You can use your facebook account if you're feeling lazy to fill up the form. My sister used this, so when she forgot her password, she would just log in using her facebook and she's logged in. No hassle.

2. Wattpad App is Available on GOOGLE PLAY and ITunes! Also F-R-E-E!

You don't have to bawl your eyes out reading in front of your laptop or pc. You can find your favorite position while sitting or laying comfortably while holding your phone while browsing or reading. The APP itself is easy to navigate and you don't have to take a computer course to be able to navigate through the app itself. Having your phone or tablet is like having a lot of books without the heaviness of real books!

3. You Don't Need To Be A Pro to Post your Work.

You don't need to have a degree in writing or anything at all. If you want to write something, write! Then post it in wattpad and share to the world. The website is also easy to navigate. You can write under different genre. You can use your real name or you can use a pen name too! English, Taglish or pure Tagalog, it doesn't matter! Just write!

4. A Lot of Genres of Stories To Choose From!

It doesn't matter if you're the Sci Fi type of guy or the ChickLit type of girl. Just hit that word and you will be directed to the stories under that genre. All you have to do is to choose between the stories. Then read with no ease!

5. You Can Make A Reading List!

You can track the stories you like by putting them in a READING LIST. The image above is my own reading list. I made a reading list of the stories I read that was made by a certain writer. You can customize your own reading list. It's like a playlist. Only, you aren't making a list of songs but stories!

6. You Can Read Offline Using The APP!

Just click the ADD STORY button under the story and the story will automatically be put in your account's READING LIST then the story will be downloaded. Then voila! Even though you have no internet, you can still read the stories that you added because they have been downloaded into the APP! It's like you are carrying a small library with you.

Not convinced yet? Well, because WATTPAD is an interactive website, many readers became friends with not just other readers but with the writers too! And since the Philippines is one of the countries which has most WATTPAD users, they also produce events such as wattpad meet ups for other readers to bond. 

And a whole lot more you'll discover if you happened to join Wattpad. 

Do you already have an account? What can you say about it?
