Secret Life of a Book Blogger Tag | Yes, I am an alien

secret life

It’s been a while since I’ve done a tag! This one is from Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books who tagged me last month. Yeah, I’ve been pretty bad at keeping up with book tags and so they always go out of style before I get around to posting it.

How long have you been a blogger?

I think it’s been about 2 years? Maybe 3 or 4? I’m not quite sure because I only got into blogging seriously around last year! I’m a slow learner, don’t judge me XD

At what point do you think you will stop?

Like with all my other hobbies, when I get bored which can mean a few minutes but for the blog is probably more like years. I love book blogging and it’s just so fun to talk to people with the same interests.

What is the best thing?

Definitely fangirling with people. I get to share my feels about something to others and I think that’s amazing, especially since we’ve never met face to face! The power of internet 😀 I like to imagine you’re all like this when talking about books:

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

Hmm… this is a tough one. I guess the worst thing is blogging insecurity which is really easy to get because there’s just so many great blogs out there doing the same thing I am but better. I find it really hard to give a voice to my posts but then I see others that have it in their posts and it just brings me down a bit. Then I remember in the beginning, I was really obsessed with stats. I mean, it’s hard to keep writing if no one’s reading. But now I know it’s ok because everyone has a unique writing style.

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

It depends what I’m looking for! Most of of the time, it’ll take a while. The pictures have to be a perfect fit with the words and since I’m always searching for gifs, it takes forever to scan the depths of Tumblr. Not to mention Tumblr is just one big distraction.

Who is your book crush?

Adrian Ivashkov from the Vampire Academy series and Bloodlines series is just my all time favourite book crush. For actual crush on a book though, I have to go with The Golden Lily because that book just gives me hardcore feels whenever I read it.

What author would you like to have on your blog?

I’ve never really thought about this! I think I’d really want to have maybe a contemporary author? I’d love to know where they draw their inspiration for the characters and setting from because it’s really different from fantasy where you can make up everything.

What do you wear when you write your blog posts?

I know this might sound shocking, please don’t judge me, but I wear… clothes. Sometimes my special blogging jumpsuit with bright green velvet pants, yes.

How long does it take you to prepare?

For stuff like Top Ten Tuesdays or book tags, they’re pretty quick. I just type out my answers and add some pictures and boom, post done. For reviews… yeah, that takes me days. Partly because I’m lazy but partly because I like to write reviews over a few days to think over my thoughts about the book.

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

You guys are just the friendliest people ever. Seriously, like how are you all so awesome? I honestly love the book blogging community because it’s a place where I can be the biggest book nerd and everyone is as well!

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

The number one thing would have to be post regularly. Not many people will keep coming back if it’s still the same post at the top everytime! The 2nd thing would be to socialise! It’s a win win really, you get to know a lot of people and a lot of people get to know you 😀

Who do you tag?

As always, feel free to ignore this tag if you’ve done it 😀

Annette @ Book Blather

Cameran @ camminbookland

Calliope @ Calliope the Book Goddess

Raven @ Dreamy Addictions

Victoria @ Addlepates and book nerds

    1. Thank you for tagging me! You shouldn’t have any insecurities with your blog… it’s so good!
      Tumblr is literally just a deep dark hole you can’t climb out of once you’re in. I can’t count the amount of times I’ve gone on it to find gifs and just sat there for hours scrolling through the Teen Wolf tag XD

  1. I love reading this! I totally agree with you on the whole blogger insecurity, to be honest, I recently just fell into this hole where I was finding better blogs than mine and it felt really icky but I’ve gotten past that fortunately. BTW I love you voice, it’s so much fun reading your posts!

  2. Thanks for tagging me! I am exactly that gif when talking about books haha 😛 I know what you mean about reviews – for some reason it seems to take forever to get them all written… Even if I am wearing my special blogging jumpsuit!
