The Secret Life of a Blogger Tag

Got a secret. Can you keep it? Swear this one you’ll save. Better lock it, in your pocket. Taking this one to the grave. If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I said. ‘Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead. Shhhhhhh I was tagged by Ashley from Thrifty Bibliophile to participate in The Secret Life of a Blogger Tag. Get ready to hear all my hidden thoughts darlings.

How long have you been a blogger?
1 year and 9 months!

At what point do you think you will stop?
I’m not sure. Maybe I never will and I will just slow down or maybe I will decide I no longer want to do this. Who knows what the future holds?

What’s the best thing?
Writing my thoughts down. I enjoy having a place to talk in grave detail about the things I like.

What is the worst thing? What do you do to make it okay?
Getting caught up with stats. In all my social media and with all the things I do (art, blogging, makeup art, etc.) I sometimes feel like I show more love then I receive. I will do all I can to promote other artists by liking their stuff and retweeting or commenting on other blogs and just showing genuine appreciation across all media. But, I don’t feel like I am ever shown that same recognition. Sometimes it can be discouraging and feels like people are fake with me. To make it okay I remind myself that God gave me the talents I have and I am reaching someone out there. Also, I remind myself that I do these things because I love it and the rest doesn’t matter.

How long does it take you to create/find pictures to use?
I actually decided to stop doing this. It was taking so much time and with all the other things I have to do this felt like a chore. I didn’t enjoy it at all. Now I take them when I feel I am at a really cool or unique place (like Disney, beaches, museums etc.) It makes me feel like my pictures are a bit more unique and don’t look like everyone else. I also don’t have the patience other bookstagramers have lol.

Who is your book crush?
Lol, come on people. I have a ton of those I literally can not pick one and every time I start a new book there is a possibility my next love is in those pages. One of them is Khalid Ibn al-Rashid.

What author would you like to have on your blog?
Victoria Schwab would be really amazing. I would die.

What do you wear when you write your blog posts?
Whatever clothing I am in or not in at the moment. 

How long does it take you to prepare?
I usually am months ahead, to be honest. Like this specific post was written in June and starting this month I will begin or have already begun 2019 posts. I write whenever, to be honest.

How do you feel about the book blogging community/culture?
Besides that one thing, I said above I have no issues. I don’t get into any drama so my time has been pleasant. 

What do you think one should do to have a successful blog?
Be you 🙂

  1. Your content is always fun to read (but I think i’ve missed out from some because I haven’t logged on here for quite some time). Like your answers, they do motivate my mind to think of what I’d do if the questions were directed at me (which is always an unusual feeling), but really, fun post!

  2. Totally agree with you on what’s the worst thing about blogging. Sometimes it’s difficult to ignore the stats, but at the end of the day, you just have to remember that you’re sharing your thoughts cause you love it and it makes you happy.

    Also, I’ve missed visiting and reading your blog posts. Your blog is awesome and you’re super awesome ♥
