So here goes….
1. Where do you typically write your blog posts?
Well, I usually write my blog posts on a laptop or desktop computer. Historically, I don’t have the greatest luck with using the App for writing posts…I’m just not tech savvy enough to get things to format correctly on there. In terms of physical location, I generally am either at home, on my commute to/from work, or at my desk at work on my break when I write blog posts.
2. How long does it generally take you to write a book review?
It honestly depends on the review! I’ve had book reviews that I’ve been able to have written and edited in about an hour and there are others that I’ve spaced out over a few days and written a few sentences or a paragraph at a time.
3. When did you start your book blog?
The official start of this Blog was on July 19, 2016. OMG, I completely missed the Anniversary while I was on hiatus….which just makes me feel worse about it! I don’t think I like this question lol. Book Blogging is an incredibly amazing experience and I have been absolutely loving it!
4. What is the worst thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
Ummmm…this is a hard one! I think that finding a balance between blogging and dealing with all the things of life that are happening outside of the internet. It has been an interesting ordeal to find a way to prioritize blogging and meet other obligations.
5. What is the best thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
By far, and I think this is true for most Book Bloggers, having a space to talk -and geek the hell out- about the books that I have read.
6. What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
The post that I had the most fun writing was my Congratulations Me post where I announced the official beginning of this Blog. It’s the most “fun” because it’s technically the post that started, and kicked off, this entire experience!
7. What is your favorite type of blog post to write?
BOOK REVIEWS!!! These types of posts are the main purpose and driving force behind this Blog. They’re the reason I was inspired to begin this experience.
8. When do you typically write?
I tend to write whenever I can. Due to my work schedule I am unable to really find a set time that I am able to dedicate to blogging.
9. Do you review every book you read?
NOPE! I don’t want to say that it would be impossible, but I don’t know how’d I’d get anything else done…or at the very least I would have to cut down on reading time and use that time to write reviews. Which in some way feels like it would be defeating the purpose.
10. How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? Cuddled with your fur baby?
Ideally with no distractions around. I am very easily distracted and so I try to have as little temptations around as possible.
11. When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing the book? Two weeks after finishing the book?
It depends…some of the reviews I’ve written have been on books that I read before even starting this blog. With books that I have read recently, or specifically for the purposes of reviewing, I try to sit with the story for a few days before writing out my thoughts. I try to take some time to gather my thoughts and feelings about the story and find ways to best communicate those things through writing….especially if I had very strong feelings about the book.
12. How often do you post?
I post Book Reviews twice per week (Tuesdays and Fridays). I also post a Highlight/Wrap-Up post and an Original Content post each month.
