The Secret Life of a Book Blogger

How long have you been blogging?

For the past few years now I think, it’s changed a hell of a lot though in that time – my writing has gotten better and my understanding of using wordpress. Which means that my blog itself has expanded and looks a lot better I think.

At what point do you think you’ll stop?

I hope I never stop! I think the best thing about blogging is that it changes with you, so I want it to keep changing when I go through life. My posts will update with my life and I want to continue to share my thoughts.

What is the best thing about blogging?

I like that you have the freedom to choose your direction and pick what you want to write about. It is literally an online representation of your personality.

What is the worst thing about it, and what do you do to make it better?

I think it can be quite hard at times to keep up to date with the blog. I beat myself up a lot because I haven’t been posting on time or haven’t been keeping up with reading other blog posts. There’s nothing much to do about it – I just try to remind myself that this is a hobby, and not a chore that I set myself.

How long does it take you to make or find pictures?

It’s strange really, because sometimes it doesn’t take long at all and others it takes ages. I try to make things in bulk so I’m prepared when I make a blog post. It’s my bookstagram photos that end up taking a while.

Who is your book crush?

I have so many! I don’t think I can legitimately choose right now. I fall in love with too many characters that I read.

What author would you like to have on your blog?

I have a few that are my favourites, that I would love to meet in person and love even more to have on my blog – Leigh Bardugo, Stephanie Garber, Julie C. Dao and Melinda Salisbury.

What do you wear when you’re blogging?

This is an odd question – I write my blogs whenever and it just depends on the time of the day.

How long does it take to prepare?

It’s more getting myself to sit down and actually write something, that takes ages. When it comes to writing the blog itself, it’s not too bad.

How do you feel about the book community?

I wish that I could interact more with the book community – I love the people who I have spoken to, everyone is so friendly and nice. I just want to speak to more people!

How can you write and maintain a successful blog?

I don’t think I’m qualified to write about that! It doesn’t matter as long as you’re happy and writing about what you love. The only thing I will say is, make sure you’re interacting with everyone else and follow blogs and read them.

  1. The worst thing about blogging is definitely the pressure that we put on ourselves to have posts written, edited, scheduled and for everything to look perfect. Which doesn’t always happen.
    I usually try to prepare all of my posts on the weekend, but that is also the only time during the week when I can read and write reviews πŸ˜€ So my weekends are kinda hectic (plus all the errands and household stuff). But each weekend I think I can do all 1973847 tasks I set for myself πŸ˜€

    1. Oh my god that’s so true, I tell myself that I’ll be able to get everything done and I’ll get on top of it all – but it never happens! I just can never seem to find the time to sit down and just work specifically on my blog and I need it so much
