This weeks topic is ‘Do you run a booktube?’. Short answer to that: no haha!
If you blog and booktube why do you do both? If you only blog why have you chosen blogging over booktubing?
I only blog. Before I started my blog I wanted to start a booktube, but I’m way to shy for that! Also I feel like I wouldn’t know what to say haha! So instead I started my blog, and I’m very content with that!
Although I do think I spend more time watching booktube than I do reading blogs! But then I can just put on booktube on the background, can’t do that with blogs haah. Recently there has been a trend on booktube with hosting live reading sprints, I’m having a good time joining those, it’s like you’re reading with friends!
Do you think one format does certain things better than the other?
I love watching reading vlogs, which won’t really work on blogs. Although I guess you could write out what you read every day, but I personally wouldn’t be too interested in reading those. Unless it’s for a 24h readathon or something, I like those!
But then I never watch monthly wrap ups on booktube, but I love to read them! Mainly because it is very easy to just scroll to the books I’m interested in reading about! Also some bloggers include stats, and I always love seeing those 🙂
Do you ever want to run a booktube if you don’t already?
I don’t know..
On the one side I would love too, but on the other it sounds like quite some work haha! I feel like for blog posts you can easily just write small parts in between other things your doing. But for filming, it is probably better to fill all at ones (depending on the video of course). And then the editing… I wouldn’t know how to do that haha. And then we come back to the initial problem, I’m still to introvert for this..
But I really appreciate all the booktubers out there! Since I love watching the videos!
