Sam tagged me for The Secret Life of A Book Blogger Tag! Thank you so much! This is also kind of ironic as my blog is secret, lol! Gaahhhhhh I am so excited to do this tag!!!
How long have you been blogging/been a blogger?
I’ve been blogging since January 7th on here, but since the 23rd of December last year (Today!)
At what point do you think you’ll stop blogging?
I’d love to never stop, but I feel like I will have to when I go to Uni, but that’s not for a longggggg time, so who knows what’ll happen??
What is the best thing about blogging?
Honestly, it’s meeting loads of people each day, and talking to people from all over the world with different backgrounds and connecting. It’s so wonderful and I love talking to new people and bonding over books!
What is the worst thing? What do you do to make it okay?
I’m not sure really. . . I think that it’s the insecurity, because sometimes I do wonder, “what if no-one enjoys this post?” and then I have to take a step back and remind myself that I’m blogging for myself, because I want to and love to do it and as long as it’s making me happy it matters.
How long does it take you to make/find pictures to use?
Forever!! I am so picky!! I honestly am so fussy and will retake a photo 10000 times!
Who is your book crush?
At the moment it is Kaz Brekker! I’m just getting into Crooked Kingdom and cannot wait to read about him some more!!
What author would you like to have on your blog?
There are too many to choose! I honest to God couldn’t mention people because I would feel mean for not mentioning every author out there because they all deserve the recognition for the amazing achievement of writing a book!!
What do you wear when you write your blog posts?
Anything comfortable! After school I change from my uniform into some joggers and comfy sweater and refuse to wear anything that’s not cozy!!
How long does it take you to prepare?
It really depends on the post. At the moment it is taking me longer and longer to write reviews as I want to cram everything in and talk about everything I could possibly talk about. But chattier posts? They take me ageeesss as I literally talk and talk and then end up deleting most of it.
How do you feel about the book blogging community?
I think it’s amazing! What would we be without it?!
What do you think one should do to get a successful blog?
This is a really complicated question for me. I think that a successful blog should be somewhere that people feel comfortable and the blogger does. A successful blog should be a place where someone has put in such a large piece of themselves and that they’re passionate about. I don’t think that it should be about numbers like views, comments, followers etc. Because those things are just numbers on a screen and don’t mean that much overall, forming friendships, connecting and sharing passions does.
Thank you so much for reading this far, and sorry for that paragraph rant-thing at the end! Thank you to both Sam and Maya again for tagging me, I loved completing these tags.
In the christmassy spirit I’m going to tag everyone for these fun tags as I think that sharing things about each other is a great thing to do this time of year.
Have a great rest of the day/ evening,
