The secret life of a book blogger!

I was tagged by Let’s get galactic, thanks! I actually already did this tag last August (see here!) but I will do it again since that was almost a year ago!

How long have you been blogging?

I started in April 2018, so a bit over a year 🙂

At what point do you think you’ll stop blogging?

Same answer as last time, when I’m not enjoying it anymore! I do this for pleasure, so when I don’t get pleasure out of it, what is the point?!

What is the best thing about blogging?

Reading other people’s posts and communicating with other bloggers! I also love reading all the different opinions on the same books!

What is the worst thing? What do you do to make it okay?

I don’t really know haha. Since I post every day, sometimes it is a bit hard to actually write something. But as soon as I start I will enjoy myself!

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

Not that long haha, since I already make photos for bookstagram, on which I really have been lacking lately.., I will just use those! To make the photo’s I will just go outside to a park, 15 minutes walking, and make my photo’s there! Depending on the amount of books I bring this take around an hour (including the walking ahah)

What is your book crush?

I don’t really get book crushes..

Maybe legend from caraval (pretty sure I said that last time as well1), or Thomas Cresswell from Stalking Jack the Ripper.

What author would you like as guest on your blog?

Any! But of course my faves! Leigh Bardugo, VE Schwab, Jay Kristoff, and many more!

What do you wear when you write blog posts?

Depends when I write! In the morning I will wear my pyjamas, if during the day just my normal clothes, and in the evening either comfy clothes or my pyjama again haha.

How long does it take you to prepare?

For all the posts that I write regularly (TTT, Can’t wait Wednesday, reviews) I’ve made a set up that I can copy paste, to save some time. But it really depends, reviews can take me from half an hour to 2 hours, sometimes it is just easier to write down my thoughts.

Can’t wait Wednesday’s, barely take me any time, since I basically just copy things from GoodReads, so let’s say 15 minutes.

TTT also take me from 30-60 minutes I guess, depending on the topic!

How do you feel about the book blogging community?

I love it! Everyone is so nice and supportive!

What do you think one should do to get a successful blog?

Well I guess that depends what you consider successful?! I would say my blog is successful, not because I have many followers, but I started this for pleasure, and pleasure is what I get out of it!

But for getting many followers, I’m not the right person to ask this, I guess blog hopping is very important, probably organizing giveaways will also help a lot!

I tag (if you haven’t done it yet): Meeghan reads, the little book owl, mousai bookcom, My world of books.

Thanks for reading!

  3. WOW! You’re doing so well for only starting a year ago! I thought you were a blogger who’s been around for a while! I also love how blogging has allowed me to connect with so many other people I would’ve never met!I think my reviews take me the longest to write as well … but they’re my favourite things to write ha-ha!Lovely post!
