Secret Life Of A Book Blogger Tag

Secret Life Of A Book Blogger

I saw this tag on Lydia Tewkesbury‘s blog, 22 is still young adult (psst she’s a real awesomesauce blogger so do give her a visit) and instantly wanted to do it, cause it looks really fun!

  1. How long have you been a blogger?

I’m going to say almost three months. Even though I did start posting from August, I took a three month hiatus from October to November. So technically,  the end of this January 2016 marks my three monthaversary. If I make it that far.

  1. At what point do you think you will stop?

Certainly not any time soon! I love the bookish community and the book blogosphere is the best there is. Even though I am a newbie, I’ve had such supportive friends (ie you…my fellow readers) and such a nice welcome into the community, that I want to keep up this hobby and meet more amazing people.

Of course, I may take hiatuses occasionally, what with my life being unpredictable as it is.

 

  1. What is the best thing?

I do love books gif

Oh that’s easy: talking about books with people who actually reads. I have very few bookworm friends, and those who do happen to read once in a while don’t read any of the books I read. Hence I must rely on my online book loving friends to keep me sane.

 

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

When I plan on scheduling a post early but fail to do it. So far, I have managed to schedule a few posts in advance by being a little organized, but I’m so lazy that organizing is something I’m still learning about.

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

Less than 2 seconds. Me being a gif addict, I already have a huge collection of images sitting on my computer just waiting to be used!

  1. Who’s your book crush?

This is embarrassing but I have a long list of book crushes (it’s so hard to choose! they are all so good!) Warner from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi has the #1 spot though. Oh, Warner.

  1. What author would you like to have on your blog?

Oh dear. This is tough. If I could, I’d ask all my favorite writers. But I think I would really love to have Marissa Meyer (the brilliant mastermind behind The Lunar Chronicles) because she’s really funny and Laurie Halse Anderson because she’s super wise and my idol.

  1. What do you wear when you write your blog post?

What I always wear at home–something faded, maybe with a few holes, and super soft from being washed a million times.

  1. How long does it take you to prepare?

Somewhere around an hour and a half during which time I can stare at a blank page + get distracted by food (ooh chocolate!) + edit and re-edit everything I type. Yeah…I think it takes me a little more than an hour and a half sometimes.

I may or may not have a problem.

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

Please see answer 2. Thank you.

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

You’re asking me?

  1. Who do you tag?

I tag That Peculiar Fangirl cause I think she will like this, and I tag The Bookgasm Blog, That Bookshelf Bitch, Reg from She Latitude, YA Book Monster ,   Mud and Stars , Drizzle and Hurricane Books , Head In The Clouds Heart In The Books , Dreamy Addictions, Literary Hellion and Your Daughter’s Bookshelf because I want to know you lovelies more. Of course, you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to! Adieu.

    Thanks again for tagging me for this! 🙂 I enjoyed reading your answers, and love that you used a Once Upon a Time gif, I love that show! Also number 9 definitely describes my blogging process (especially the blank screen and chocolate part!) I completely understand the hiatus thing – I keep having really long gaps between my posts because life gets in the way, and there are so many evenings where I want to blog but I’m too tired from work. I should definitely do the schedule thing, but like you said in your post, laziness does get in the way haha!

      Yes it does. I have found that organizing is a good way of procastinating before finally getting the job done. I have started bullet journaling and using apps like Evernote and Splen Do to keep me focused and motivated and so far it’s been going great!

        Good idea! I might try Evernote too, although I’m also thinking I might buy myself a little notebook or something to write all my thoughts down and plan out posts – I’m really forgetful (and lazy haha) so I think it’ll help!

          Bullet journals are a great way to organize! I learned it from Josie from Josie’s Book Corner and it’s been helping me a lot. There’s also an even better app than Evernote called Splen Do. I use all 3.

          Try out diff types and ways! Everyone has their own way to organize without going insane 😄 And so sorry for the late reply! I was just really busy with university life.

            Thanks, will definitely check that one out too! And no worries, life can get pretty hectic sometimes. It often takes me at least 5 days to reply to comments, especially if I have a busy week at work.

    You sure did have a big haul of gif there. You’re a smart picker, Tanaz! Very appropriate and hilarious 😀

    I can relate to what you said about having mini hiatuses from time to time. Life can be really demanding at times. I often go on announced hiatuses but oftentimes, I just go out without advice. LOL. But well you know what? What I like about it is despite the short absences, the blogging community is still there when you get back.

    Ahh I feel really honored to be considered as one of those you wish to know more. See you around on WP and Twitter! 😉😄😎

      I’m addicted to them gifs! And yes one of the best parts of the bookish community is that they are always there for you. I don’t think I would have had the courage to take so many hiatuses if I hadn’t had such warm welcome each time I returned.

      Tweet away, Trisha! I’d love to hear from you 😊

    Thanks 🙂

    I totally understand the unpredictable life issue. I have that going on too. Sometimes the world just does not respect the fact that I have a blog to be getting on with, haha.

    Your Lizzie Bennet GIF makes me want to spend the rest of my afternoon binge watching The Lizzie Bennet diaries..
