Hiya people! So I’ve written a tonne of reviews but just cbf formatting them and I like to procrastinate, what can I say it’s one of my finer skills *polishes apple on top*
So I’m doing the Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag to put off my reviews that little bit longer.
How long have you been a blogger?
I started this blog in February so 8 months now and the time has flown by.
At what point do you think you will stop?
Never hopefully, blogging has become a huge part in my life and as long as I’m reading i hope to be blogging and sharing my love of books with this amazing community.
What is the best part?
The best part is the people you meet. I have met so many amazing and wonderful people blogging and even met a fair few in real life at events. To find people who share the same love of something you do is the best feeling.
What is the worst part?
The worst part for me is getting over the guilt of not posting enough. When things get busy it’s hard to post and catch up on all my favourite blogs but I just need to time manage a bit better.
How long does it take you to find/create pictures to use?
It really depends on what I’m doing, sometimes I can spend a heap of time on a design or the perfect gif only to never post it. When I do finally make find the perfect image I’m just like Barney
Who’s your book crush?
I adore Jamie Frasier from Outlander, Rhysand from A Court of Mist and Fury, and Warner from The Shatter Me series.
Why do all my Book crushes have blue covers? Is this the new colour of love? I shall buy only blue books if they all have male leads like these three.
What author would you like to have on your blog?
I would love to Erin Morgenstern on my blog only to ask her all sorts of questions about the world building and descriptions that went into the amazing Night Circus.
What do you wear when you write your blog?
Clothes.. haha I don’t have a particular outfit I wear when I blog right now I’m wearing a hoody and jeans.
How long does it take you to prepare a post?
It all depends on a post, some of my discussion/rant posts like Reading has no age limit took me 20 mins to write and 15 mins to edit and format but I was really enraged when I wrote this and my finger were flying off the keyboard. A tag takes me around 30 mins and a review will take me anywhere from 20mins to a day to write because I like to sit on it for a while and there’s a lot more thought on how I want my review to read and look.
How do you feel about the book blogger community/culture?
I feel so much love, yes we have the occasional bad egg like every other community but all the people I’ve met through blogging have been the most amazing human beings.
What do you think one should do to have a successful blog?
Be happy with it. This question is really “How do you measure success?” before I started I thought I wanted to have a big following but now I’m not fussed about it. I actually like having a smaller following because it’s easier to keep up with everyone and be able to comment and respond to comments. There is no use being a ghost follower to me. I do this to talk to people about books, not have great stats. I’d say if your happy with your blog it’s a success.
I wasn’t tagged to do this but if you want to do this go ahead! I would love to see your answers
