Tag: Book Blogger Insider

Another day. Another book tag. 😉 Thanks so much to Bookgraphy for tagging me! 💕

Rules:

  • Answer the questions below
  • Credit the creater Jamie @ A Little Slice of Jamie
  • Tag at least 5 people
  • Have fun! 

Where do you typically write your blog posts? 

At my desk! I’m generally more “productive” at my desk, and it’s very comfortable and homey for me to work in my dorm. giphy

How long does it take you to write a book review? 

At least an hour. ⏰ I feel like I’m incredibly slow at writing book reviews, especially in comparison to other book bloggers. If I write good notes while I’m reading, I can usually finish a review within an hour, but I usually get very distracted overall when writing.

When did you start your book blog? 

December 2018I actually started my book blog during finals week because I was burnt out from studying. 😂 (Don’t worry! I still got straight A’s)

What’s the worst thing about having a book blog? 

Self-Placed Pressure. I always feel like I need to be doing more. Writing more. Reading more. Posting more. Engaging with others more. It gets to a point that’s just unrealistic for me to handle, so I always need to remind myself that there’s no need to rush. screen-shot-2018-04-19-at-1-15-55-am-e1524143353423.png

What’s the best thing about having a book blog? 

Having something to call my own. 💕 This blog is my personal space. It’s a way for me to escape from the outside world and enjoy an activity I really love with friends that I otherwise would not have been able to meet. 9f865060-7a92-0133-6eb1-0aecee5a8273

What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far? 

Why I Love Reading. 💖 This is the second post that I ever wrote, but it still remains so relevant for me. I love my book reviews, tags, and random discussions, but this was the post that really started everything for me.

What is your favorite type of blog posts to write? 

Monthly Wrap-Ups. These are by far the easiest to write and also the most fun. I love seeing the entire month at a glance. Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 8.08.45 AM

When do you typically write? 

Whenever I have time. It’s really difficult to find time to write, especially during the heavy exam seasons. I just try to squeeze in writing whenever I can as a way to decompress.tenor.gif

How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? Cuddled with your fur baby? 

With tea at my desk. 🍵 I would love to be the aesthetic blogger who writes in a coffee shop, but I normally just write sitting at my desk. giphy.gif

When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing the book? Two weeks after? 

LMAO A long time after I actually read the book. I still have books from January that I still haven’t written reviews for. 😂 raw.gif

How often do you post? 

Twice a week. I aim to have my posts up on Sunday and Thursday at 6PM, but I’m usually off by a couple of hours. #oops

  1. I love your answers, ahhh the struggle of wanting to engage more, read and write more to being fulfilled whenever you see your wrap-up post. It all feels rewarding in the end. 😻❤

  2. Nice answers!

    Yep.. self pressure is the worst 🤦🏽‍♀️ specially as we don’t really have a limit yo pressure our own self and pass the longest of time feeling guilty.. mostly for something we dont even need to feel guilty for !? D:

    Also I seem to be the only one writing my reviews as I read ? It help soo much with time yall 🙈 finish the book, and you only need to fix a couple things and tada! Off to post it goes, lifesaver hehe

    1. Teach me how to write reviews as I read!! I get too into the book and don’t have the patience to write anything down for reviews (maybe a few notes).

      The pressure we put on ourselves is actually ridiculous! There’s no reason for it, yet we always do!

      1. Well okay, not that much while im reading 🙈 after im done my reading spree I open my wp drafts and I start my review with my introduction and watever I include.. up to my section where I put my thoughts (leaving the rating blank for now) and so after I resume my reading I’ll go and add things to it if I have something to say directly on the draft 🙂 it’ll stay there up until I finish the book so I can complete the rating and general thought and then up to scheduling

  3. I definitely feel that pressure to do MORE when I blog, too! It’s especially difficult when I have mountains of course work to complete and just no time to leisurely read blog posts and comment on other blogs like I would really like to do. I just have to keep telling myself that I’ll get around to it eventually. Great answers! 🙂

  4. Book reviews actually take so much time, right? I’ve often come across people going all shocked when I say I have to give AT LEAST an hour to get my thoughts written in a coherent manner, but like…it’s difficult! Thanks for tagging me, lovely! ❤

  5. For me, the best thing about having a book blog is the community 🙂 such a network of support. And the knowledge! And the way publishers trust you 🙂 also, I am older, so it’s not the same for me, cause I have had jobs before, but say if I was a teen – I think it would be a really good “first professional experience” – because it’s kind of like having a job, all the responsibilities and professionalism that you learn along with it. It’s really useful to learn that before you actually have a desk job – very useful 🙂

    And I also love wrap-ups 🙂

    A lot of times, I actually write my blog posts “while” I’m reading the book xD I have a lot of notes on my phone while I’m reading. Then I sort of just sum them up when I start writing 🙂

    1. Thanks Evelina for all your support and stopping by ❤ I was truly debating between picking the community and personal thing as the best thing but they're honestly the two best!! I love how supportive and kind everyone is 🙂 I definitely talk about my book blog during some job interviews! I highlight how it improves my eye for detail and writing skills. Can't wait for your next post! (and the wrap-up?)

  6. This was such a lovely post! I definitely take at least an hour to write my reviews because I like them to be as “perfect” as possible. Yup. There goes that self-placed pressure you mentioned lol. Loved this! 🙂

    1. Thanks Taylor!! Let me know if you decide to do this book tag too because I had so much fun doing it 🙂 I hate how long it takes me to write reviews!! They’re fun to read when it’s over, but in the moment, it’s so difficult!
