I found this post on Clarissa’s Quirky Lady Bookworm Reviews.
So let’s get going.


When did you start blogging and what was your first review? 
 
Hidden a House of night Novel was one of the first reviews I published on my blog.  That was in February 2014, however I owned  previous blog on Blogger a year before that.
 
Who/what inspired you to start blogging? 
 
I was inspired by the reviews I would see people give on Youtube and on amazon.  I followed a few links and thought why not give it a go.  It started off as a small hobby when I started university just to give me some separate time away from concentrating, more of a break.
 
What is a blog-related goal that you have? 
 
I know this is probably every bloggers goal, however I would love LOVE LOVE to turn this blog into more of a job one day.  I love to read, unfortunately my main job got in the way of this and my blog had to take a back seat.
 
What is one thing you wish someone told you about blogging? 
Social media is your friend.  Get involved on twitter with other #BookBloggers.  This was when I really noticed a change in my blog and the support was/is amazing.
 
What was your biggest blog-related accomplishment? 
 
Nearly getting to 500 followers 🙂
What types of posts do you enjoy writing? 
 
I love writing book reviews, I wish I had more time to read.  But I do love sharing book promotions.
 
Where do you usually blog? What does your setup look like? 
 
I usually blog in my living room on my big side of the sofa (like a dome).  I normally have Craig on my right watching what ever he wants on the TV, this is usually about 2100.  I will have a hot chocolate in one hand, my note book to my right and my laptop on my lap.
However I am currently sat on my bed keeping an eye on my baby boy enjoying the breeze from the window.
 
What was your last 5-star read? 
Very steamy 😉
What was your last 1-star read? 
 
Wow, Never had a 1 star review I think that’s because I never had the heart to do that but I have rated a book 2 stars…….Close to home By Cara Hunter: Book Review
 
What are three words that make you pick up a book? 
Romance
Fantasy
Fiction
What is your Hogwarts House? 
 
I am going to crush a lot of your dreams but never read the books only watched the films and I guess Gryffindor .
 
What is your favorite reading environment? 
 
Outside in my garden on my lounger.
In the winter I snuggle under a blanket on my sofa, music on in the background and my candles on.
 
What advice would you give to new bloggers? 
 
Don’t be disheartened if nothing happens fast.  I have been doing this for years and it took ages to get nearly 500 followers, I learnt how to get a bigger family by finding other bloggers on twitter and interacting with them.
Follow other people, find inspiration and do not feel pressured to produce posts all the time.  I did and then my posts were no where near their best.
I may not have as many followers however I post when I want to and when I can, I make sure I have family time and if I am stressed I relax.  Therefor my blog has had slow growth.
