**Let me know if you can see these Gif’s down in the comments! My other post was giving me trouble so I’m trying to get it all fixed up!**
I found this tag when I stumbled my way on over to The Tattooed Book Geek. I’m still so new to the blogging world and I’m trying to find things that help me engage with y’all! So far, I’ve really enjoyed doing book tags. Let me know down in the comments if there is anything you want me to do or go find stuff to tag me in and I’ll do them!
How long have you been a blogger?
My very first blog post was August 25, 2011. I was in 11th grade and had to make a blog for my Agriculture class. That only lasted until October though. I posted again to that same blog Jul 28, 2014. I started this blog with my first post on Sep 7, 2017. So, consecutively, I’ve been a blogger for about 5 months.
At what point do you think you will stop?
Before, I would’ve said when I get bored. Now, I really like blogging and I really enjoy what I’m blogging about so I can’t give a definite answer on this question, kiddos.
What is the best part?
I think the best part is connecting with other bloggers. As a reader, a lot of times our friends don’t read as much as we do. So, it’s great to find like minded people and be able to come together and converse about something we are so passionate about.
What is the worst part?
For me, it’s “filler” posts. I have the hardest time finding things I want to post on my blog when I’m not posting reviews. I only post reviews two days a week so the other three I have to find other things that interest me to post. This is only my second book tag to post and so far this is a wonderful alternative.
How long does it take you to find/create pictures to use?
Not very long. With pictures of books I either take them myself from my physical copies or I take the picture of the cover from Barnes and Noble or Goodreads. Using GIF’s can take a lot of time though. I want to find stuff relevant but still funny.
Who’s your book crush?
Don’t make fun of me. You’re going to make fun of me. Okay. It’s Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses.
I’m 22. I’m not too old to have a book crush. If you’ve read the books, you get it. If you haven’t, or if you’re ACO book crush is Tamlin, just get out.
What author would you like to have on your blog?
I’m going to shoot for the stars here and say Sarah J Maas. Yes, I know, I know. Not going to happen. I just love her writing so much.
What do you wear when you write your blog?
Nah, I’m at work right now so comfy pants, dress shoes, and a long sleeve shirt because for some reason Texas decided the last two days are going to be FREEZING COLD. If I’m at home then pjs. I don’t have anything I wear specifically that gets me into the “blogging mood.”
How long does it take you to prepare a post?
It really depends on the post. Review posts I can get up pretty quickly, I’d say an hour max. If it’s a post I really want to do or am super excited about then super fast. I did an about me yesterday (?) that took me ALLLL DAYYYY. I love talking about things I do or things I read but I hate talking about my self. This post has taken me since lunch yesterday because I keep procrastinating over doing it.
How do you feel about the book blogger community/culture?
I absolutely love it! As I said above, I feel like our community is the best part about blogging!
What do you think one should do to have a successful blog?
I think you should just be yourself. Yes, I am a book blog. Yes, I post reviews. But, I am also doing other things that I enjoy and that make me happen. Sure it takes up space on my blog and if you came here just to see reviews that may bother you. But I am having fun and that’s what matters.
Who do I want to know more?
I’m not going to nominate anyone, if you feel like doing this tag then please do, as, well, you know you really want to tell the world what you wear when you blog!
