I was tagged by the lovely Destiny at Howling Libraries, go and pay her blog a visit (and gasp at the amount of books she hauls!!!)
Here we go with my secret life (actually not secret, just boring!!!!)
How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging in 2012 using a Facebook page and then went on to my WordPress blog 4 years ago. Wow time flies!
At what point do you think you’ll stop blogging?
I have no idea! I guess if my love for reading ever goes away then my blog will too (even typing that made me sad!)
What is the best thing about blogging?
The community. I love reading people’s posts, commenting and blog hopping!
What is the worst thing?
Facebook and the drama! The Facebook book community used to be a fab place to be but now, not so much!
How long does it take you to make/find pictures to use?
Well…..I’m not much of an artist! I try. I really do! But I’m never really happy with them. My mantra is practice makes perfect (and I have a lot of practicing to do!)
Who is your book crush?
I have a lot. Like a lot! Rhysand definitely is up there along with Ruger from the Reapers series by Joanna Wylde, Lahn who was created by Kristen Ashley, Legend by Stephanie Garber…the list goes on. I’m so fickle!
What author would you like to have on your blog?
I can produce a list if you like?!!! So many!
I guess if I could have the pick of anyone it would be Stephanie Garber. I love her writing style and have fallen in love with her Caraval world.
What do you wear when you write your blog posts?
Umm. It depends. If it’s daytime then probably jeans and a tee. If it’s past 6pm the rule in my house is that PJ’s are on!
How long does it take you to prepare?
A post? Hmmm….it depends! I usually write stuff up on my phone in notes (like I’m doing now!) and then I add to WordPress, add pics, look at spelling, fonts, colours and add anything I think the post needs. Swings and roundabouts, I’d probably say 15 minutes?
How do you feel about the blogging community?
WordPress community, I love. I never see any drama, just the love of books and it makes me so happy.
What do you think one should do to create a successful blog?
I guess it depends on how you define successful. For me success is based on if I’m happy with what I am doing and that I dont feel stressed or pressured.
If I’m happy in my bubble, that counts as successful to me!
I’m going to be ‘that’ person and not tag anyone but please feel free to do this, it was fun!
