Behind the Screen: A Book Blogger Tag
When did you start blogging and what was your first review?
I started this book blog in December of 2016. My first review was: [Graphic Novel Review] Lumberjanes Vol. 3: A Terrible Plan.
Who/what inspired you to start blogging?
I had been using Books Amino, a phone app, where I was posting reviews. Because of the engagement on my posts, I decided that it was time to step it up a bit and move to put my posts in front of a broader audience.
What is a blog-related goal that you have?
I would love to be featured in some book blurbs.
What is one thing you wish someone told you about blogging?
I wish someone would have told me to create a review policy as soon as I got my blog up and running. I ran into quite a few difficult situations before I had my policy up and running.
What was your biggest blog-related accomplishment?
I feel incredibly accomplished when authors provide me with testimonials after we have completed an honest review exchange. It’s always so nice to record kind testimonials that you can go back to and look at when feeling down.
What types of posts do you enjoy writing?
I really enjoy writing feature posts, whether that is featuring a local bookstore, or hosting an author interview.
Where do you usually blog? What does your setup look like?
For the majority of my blogging time, I split my time between my standing desk and our kitchen table. Occasionally I will blog wile sitting up in bed.
What was your last 5-star read?
Collected Halloween Horror Shorts: Trick ‘r Treat by Kevin J. Kennedy. It is such an amazing collections!
What was your last 1-star read?
Bonfire by Krysten Ritter. This was just such a miss for me.
What are three words that make you pick up a book?
Unputdownable. Addicting. Thrilling.
What is your Hogwarts House?
Hufflepuff! #PuffPride 😉
What is your favorite reading environment?
I love reading in bed late at night, with a hot cup of tea sitting on my bedside table.
What advice would you give to new bloggers?
Don’t forget to set up your following widget and place it high on your page for easy access! I lost track of many blogs when I first started blogging simply because I couldn’t find an easy way to follow them.
