The Secret Life of a Book Blogger – Book Tag

I came across this tag on Charlotte, Somewhere’s blog and knew I had to do myself! I have been pretty quiet on the blog here of late (for reasons) and figured a good-ol’ tag would be just the thing! Let’s get to it!


How Long Have You Been A Blogger?

On this blog, I just passed my 1 year mark (def meant to blog about that…whoops), but I have had several other less-successful ones in the past. Now I actually have a job that affords me the time to keep up with blogging, so that has helped!


What is the best part?

Being able to share my love of books with a wider audience, and to ramble on at my leisure!


What is the worst part?

It’s time consuming. I mean, I know it doesn’t have to be, but I like to keep up a consistent stream of content, so that means spending the time to create it.


How long does it take you to find/create pictures to use?

Not long at all. I love and adore Canva, which makes my life so much easier, and get most of my book cover graphics from Goodreads. I don’t put many memes or gifs in my posts, so that doesn’t use much of my time.


Who’s your book crush?

Rowan freaking Whitethorn. I would climb him like a tree.


What author would you like to have on your blog?

ALL OF THEM! Literally. If you are interested in doing a Q&A, hit me up!


What do you wear when you write your blog?

Clothes? What sort of question is this? Are you hitting on me?


How long does it take you to prepare a post?

That depends. Sometimes it’s a few minutes (especially with various blog tours where they provide much of the content) and sometimes its a few hours. On average, I’d say probably 20-30 minutes.


How do you feel about the book blogger community/culture?

Mostly positive! I will say that I haven’t delved too deep into the actual community, but I have enjoyed what parts of it I have seen so far!


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

Have fun, be yourself, and don’t cater to what you think others would want to see at the risk of compromising what you like! I do this blog for myself, not for others!


Have you done this tag? If so, drop a link so I can see!
