I’ve been a book blogger for a while now and I think it’s time we have a little catch up on how the blogs doing and how I’m feeling about it. Here it goes!
How long have you been a blogger?
Since 2014 so about 6 years. I did have a blog over on ‘blogger’ before that for a little while but then I found wordpress and found it a lot easier to use and follow other blogs.
At what point do you think you will stop?
When my heart stops beating. Maybe not even then. (Name that book)
What is the best part?
Chatting about books, getting excited to read and finding out what other bloggers a reading.
What is the worst thing?
I suppose I occassionally don’t feel like sharing my opinion on a book. Especially if it’s not praise because I don’t like being negative.
How long does it take you to find/create pictures to use?
Honestly this is the part of blogging that takes the most time. It can take me an entire day just to get all the pictures up. I’ve found it easier since I worked out how to use the url embedding.
Who’s your book crush?
Sirius Black. I’m a sucker for a tortured soul.
What author would you like to have on your blog?
Anyone that I want? Regardless of their living status? Jane Austen.
What do you wear when you write your blog?
Kidding! I don’t have a specific outfit. I blog when and where I can whether it’s in a full on outfit or pyjamas.
How long does it take you to prepare a post?
Normally a day. I very rarely am able to write more than one post a day. I’m a perfectionist and like to read it through multiple times for spelling mistakes and to make sure I’ve said everything I wanted to say.
How do you feel about the book blogger community/culture?
I think it’s one of the most positive parts of the internet. I feel welcomed and supported and I’m so grateful I found it.
What do you think one should do to have a successful blog?
Enjoy it. Read the books you want, be as positive and fair in your reviews as possible, and support your fellow bloggers.
I tag anyone who’s currently self-isolating! You’re all doing amazing and keeping yourself and others safe. Stay positive!
