I was nominated by Ana from Ana’s Lair for the Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag. Go check out her blog! Thank you Ana for the nomination!
1. How long have you been a blogger?
+ I started my blog back in 2011, but I never really kept up with it and I only had my bestie following me. I officially started this new blog 6-7 months ago; in January.
2. At what point do you think you will stop?
+ I’m not sure when I will stop or if I ever will! I love doing it and as love as I love doing it, I will keep with it!
3. What is the best thing?
+ One of the best things is getting to meet and talk to fellow bloggers! It’s been fun to share my love for books and talk with others that love them just as much as I do.
4. What is the worst thing? What do you do to make it okay?
+ I guess not being able to come up with posts to do! Tags and weekly memes help with that most of the time.
5. How long does it take you to create/find pictures to use?
+ Most of the time I use pictures that I personally took myself. Sometimes I’ll search for gifs to use in my blog posts and it doesn’t usually take too long.
6. Who is your book crush?
+ OMG…I have so many book crushes! This year my really big book crush would have to be Raffe from the Penyrn and the End of Days series. Go check out the series! Angelfall is the first book!
7. What author would you like to have on your blog?
+ ALL OF THEM!? If I had to choose, I would probably go with Becky Albertalli (author of Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda). She’s such a cool person and we’ve tweeted a bunch of times and it’s always been fun.
8. What do you wear when you write your blog posts?
+ It all depends on where I’m at, to be honest. I mostly do them in the morning after I get dressed for work though, so I’m usually just wearing pants and a t-shirt, lol. Nothing fancy, haha.
9. How long does it take you to prepare?
+ Sometimes I do my posts in advanced and then over the days leading up to when I plan to post, I’ll tweak them a bit. If I don’t do it in advanced, then it probably takes me about 30 minutes. Sometimes I’ll type up things on my phone to save for later for my blog.
10. How do you feel about the book blogger community/culture?
+ I love the book blogger community and I am so excited that I created this blog and have been able to be apart of it! There are so many awesome bloggers and it’s exciting to meet you all and talk to you all!
11. What do you think one should do to get a successful blog?
+ Post at least a few times a week, use pictures (even if it’s just book covers), use tags (tags are wonderful things and it gets your posts out there to everyone), and engage with other bloggers. It’s fun getting likes and it’s also great getting comments. You engage better that way and you get to know other bloggers better.
I nominate you all to do this! It’s a fun little tag to have on your blog and it may be helpful to other bloggers as well. I would love to see your answers, so link me to your posts if you choose to do it! 🙂
I have some random pictures to share with you from 4th of July weekend. You may have seen these on Instagram if you follow me.
I tried to get ColbyJack (my cat, if you’re new to my blog) a picture with the little hat on as well, but he was not having it! It’s hard enough to get him in his little birthday hat on his birthday, so trying with this hat was a huge fail. I got Dax and Bella to do it though! 😛
So I don’t leave him out of the post though, here is ColbyJack doing what he does best! 😛
Here are a couple recent posts I’ve done:
Thoughts: We Were Liars.
Blogger Recognition Award.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and has an amazing Monday! I am so tired today, so hopefully this day goes by fast! BYE! ❤
