How Long Have You Been A Blogger?
I started blogging just under a year ago when I decided to finally start a blog dedicated to something I am passionate about.
When do you think you will stop?
I don’t plan on stopping ever to be honest as I love to write my thoughts and share them but that is unrealistic. At some point I imagine that I will stop or even blog less but I have no idea when. This summer I will be working abroad for the summer so my blogs may become more irregular however I hope to continue to blog throughout. (and after I finish I will definitely blog more again).
What is the best part?
For me the best part about blogging is being able to share my love and passion for reading. I am not bothered about how many people read and if its only one, I hope that they can take something from at least one of my posts. Whether that’s a recommendation or some tips i’m not too bothered as long as I can type my thoughts and press publish. I also love hearing feedback from those who do take the time to read my posts. (I do appreciate you). I have previously been able to publish Q&A with some of my favourite authors (and have more to be publishes) and I love being able to interact with authors and share their thoughts and tips with you.
What is the worst part?
In my opinion, the worst part about blogging is often thinking about blog posts. I love writing reviews and tbr posts however those in between posts I can sometimes struggle to find an idea that I like enough to post. On these occasions I allow myself time to research and take inspiration from other bloggers and authors.
How long does it take you to find/create pictures to use?
To be honest not that long, I tend to use book covers or posters that I create on Canva. I am not a very good photographer and I don’t think any of my photos are good enough to share! I am not too bothered though as the reason I blog is to share my thoughts not my photography skills. Although I do hope to put my own photos in my blogs as I keep blogging.
What author would you like to have on your blog?
I have had the opportunity to have some of my favourite authors on my blog already and I am extremely grateful for this. I would love to have Kayla Olsen, Jessi Kirby and Linwood Barclay. I am lucky to also have a Q&A with Claire Askew (author of ‘All the hidden truths) coming out at the end of the month!
How long does it take you to prepare a post?
I think this is completely dependent on the type of post. For reviews it ca take anywhere between 30 mins and 2 hours. For this post it has taken me about hald an hour to write. (I also pride myself on being able to type fast which speeds up the process!) I couldn’t give you one answer for this question.
I Hope you enjoyed this post and if you are a book blogger yourself answer the same questions.
Many thanks, Caitlin x
