Here are my own answers to the ‘Book Blogger’ insider tag.
♥ Where do you typically write your blog posts?
Honestly, mostly my couch or anyone’s. I will also spend a lot of time in my craft room/office to write my posts. It depends on what’s going on that day, how much my laptop is charged and if I’m doing just too lazy to go upstairs. I would say about 80% of them are on my couch. Especially, during my husbands study months. He gets dibs on the “croffice”.
♥ How long does it take you to write a book review?
It depends. I would say typically anywhere from 20-45 minutes. If I love the book and have a lot to say, the latter.
♥ When did you start your book blog?
Technically it was April of 2017. I opened up my account and posted maybe 2-3 times. I had a lot of health issues last year and just never got to it. Really, it was the end of January this year. It’s been about 3 months of really being a blog. I’m still working things about but I’m loving it so much!
♥ What’s the worst thing about having a book blog, in your opinion?
I LOVE having my blog and I wouldn’t say this is a big issue, but mostly having a consistent schedule. Life is crazy and sometimes things happen. I’m trying to be better about scheduling posts, in advance, when I have some extra time. I’m still trying to figure out what works best for me. I may have taken off more than I can chew with my daily memes but it’s okay! I’m enjoying it.
♥ What’s the best thing about having a book blog, in your opinion?
The people in this community! It’s such a pleasure to talk and connect with so many people who have a passion for books! The discussions, TBR list keeps growing and everyone is just so amazing. I’m gaining followers every week but I’ve also got some who have been with me for a while. They keep coming back every week to talk books and we are getting to know each other. It’s so much fun!
♥ What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
I believe last month I did a monthly wrap up for the first time. It was my favorite because I got to see my stats, which were crazy high for that month! Not only that, I love seeing everyone else’s too.
♥ What is your favorite type of blog post to write?
Hmm.. I really enjoy all my posts but I think my Top Ten Tuesday’s are my favorite blog posts. There’s so much engagement and it’s always such a fun topic every week. I have a lot of fun on Tuesday’s!
♥ When do you typically write?
Anytime. If I finish a book and need to write the review asap, I do it as soon as I can find time. If it’s a harder review to write, I take a few days. I really don’t have a set time. I just do it when the mood hits. I prefer to write in the early morning. Although, it doesn’t always work out that way.
♥ How do you write your book reviews? with a cup of coffee or tea? with netflix? cuddled with your fur baby?
I would say with tea. I drink tea quite often. So, if I’m having anything it would be tea. I sometimes will put on shows in the background or Moana. <<<- It’s not even my favorite Disney movie but it’s on Netflix and it’s a close second. The Little Mermaid is my favorite but it’s so much easier to just turn on Netflix. Don’t get me wrong, I love Moana!! haha. I’ve probably seen it about 20 times this year, no joke. I don’t own any fur babies because I’m allergic to all pet dander. I have a fish and his name is Zeus. << Wonder Woman inspired>> my other obsession 🙂
♥ When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing the book? Two weeks after finishing the book?
It depends on how big and how much I liked the book. Some books, I try to do it right away. I’m usually jumping into another book, once I’m finished with one. So, it’s easier to write the review ASAP! Some books, I need more time to think about and then take a few days to a week to write it. It really varies but mostly right after finishing the book.
♥ How often do you post?
I usually post everyday. I have a meme for everyday of the week! I will sometimes not participate in Thursday though because that one doesn’t seem to have a lot of people participating. If you have a good Thursday meme, please let me know! I usually don’t post on weekends, unless I have some time and just finished a book. I am at my parents now and no one is home.. so I’ve got time. Usually, I’m CRAZY busy on the weekends and don’t even have time to breathe! So, mostly during the week and a few times a day, if I’ve finished a book.
This was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to read all your answers!!
