[Book Blogger Hop] Listening To Music While Writing Reviews


Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, where you answer a question and join a "hop". The purpose is to help bloggers discover and get to know one another.

For this week's question, Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer asked:
Do you listen to music while you are writing your blog posts? If so, what genre of music do you listen to? 

My answer:
Sometimes I will listen to music while writing up a review. My musical taste is all over the place! When listening to shuffle on my iTunes, it can go from classical to metal; friends have joked that my shuffle has given them mental whiplash. My favorite genres include punk, rock, and metal, but I also listen to a lot of pop and country.

I'll also listen to podcasts at times when I am working on my blog. Like as I am typing up this blog hop, I'm listening to the ID10T podcast hosted by Chris Hardwick, and the guest is Elizabeth Reaser!

Occasionally, I will need to turn everything off and just focus on the review.

Thanks for reading!

  4. I'll listen to anything that doesn't have lyrics, so I don't get distracted. Movie and game soundtracks are my usual go-tos :)

  5. I don't :) I prefer having on a Youtube video in the background or I listen to podcasts. But never music. https://latteandabook.blogspot.com

  6. I don't listen to music while I'm blogging as my sterio is in my bedroom and the computer is downstairs! I tend to have the tv on with a favourite film, sport or news in the background but sometimes I don't bother at all.

  7. Sometimes I'll listen to an audiobook when I'm writing a blog post or music. I've been told the same thing about whiplash when I put my music on shuffle. :)

  8. I like a wide range of music too, although I tend to listen to it in phases. Hope you have a great week. - Katie

  9. Sound doesn't really bother me when I'm reading or writing reviews, but I don't necessarily do it on purpose. It's usually just that the TV is on or something. lol
