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?
What are three words that make you pick up a book?
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.
