How long have you been a blogger?
This is my 9th month, so I’m still a rookie! My first blog post was posted in August 2017.
At what point do you think you will stop?
When it stops being enjoyable. Hopefully never. I’ve met so many wonderful people through the blogging community, so I’d like to keep my little blog going.
What’s the best thing?
The book blogging community! I had no idea there were so many people out there as passionate about books as I am. It’s been so cool meeting new blogging friends and talking about my favorite subject: books! Because of this community, I’ve been introduced to so many great books that I may not have heard about otherwise.
What is the worst thing? What do you do to make it okay?
Keeping up with posting. Sometimes writing blog posts isn’t always fun. Book reviews, especially, can feel like a chore. I continue to push through because I like the end result. I like the engagement from others and having the opportunity to discuss bookish things. It’s fun making those connections and seeing my blog statistics continue to trend upwards.
How long does it take you to create/find pictures to use?
I spend about an hour every other week taking photos for my blog and Bookstagram. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I’ve found that if I work quickly, a couple hours each month gives me plenty of time to take blog photos.
Who is your book crush?
Rhysand from A Court of Thorns and Roses. Hands down. No competition.
What author would you like to have on your blog?
Sarah J. Maas. And I would be fangirling the entire time.
What do you wear when you write your blog posts?
Sweat pants and a sweatshirt? I’m not fancy.
How long does it take you to prepare?
Nearly all of my posts are written during my son’s naps on the weekend, so I have a good 3-4 hours for blog writing each week. Each post takes me between 15-45 minutes, depending on the post type. Book reviews tend to take me the longest.
How do you feel about the book blogging community/culture?
I love it. I steer clear of the drama and soak up the good vibes.
What do you think one should do to have a successful blog?
Ask questions, play around with what works for you, and find your own voice. Followers will come with time, so don’t sweat it!
