I’d like to thank Donna at Chocolate n Waffles Blog for tagging me and taking the procrastination of what to blog about today away. Thank you!

How long have you been a blogger?

I started blogging in December 2012, although was not sure what I was going to blog about until weeks later when I started publishing my book reviews regularly.

At what point do you think you will stop? 

When I’m too weak to stop them from prying tablets and Kindles out of my weak and feeble hands.

What is the best part?

Having a purpose and sending questions into the blogosphere knowing there are people like me, out there who will answer my call.

What is the worst part? 

Not having as much time as I would like to explore more blogs and keep on top of my every growing to-be-read pile of books.

How long does it take you to find/create pictures to use?

I usually try to keep a library of images I have taken for every occasion. Inevitably they mostly feature cats.

Who’s your book crush? 

I don’t usually get a book crush so was surprised when I did have a crush on Ben Hope from the Scott Mariani books.

What author would you like to have on your blog?

Tess Gerritsen, I am sending this out there to cyberspace, so Tess if you are reading this and would like to make the day of an ailing ex-medic, get in touch.

What do you wear when you write your blog?

Something lose, comfortable and bohemian. Due to the warm weather I have taken to wearing linen and cotton.

How long does it take you to prepare a post? 

It varies depending on what I am trying to say. If I love a book, no time at all, but if I’m conflicted because, I wanted to like it and I just didn’t, it can take hours.

Posts that are more personal in nature can take over a day to feel ready to post.

How do you feel about the book blogger community/culture? 

I absolutely love it, I feel part of something greater and enjoy meeting new bloggers. I have never felt so inspired by a community as I do by book bloggers.

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

I think you have to love blogging in all it’s forms:

Reading and commenting on other blogs everyday.
Posting regularly.
Promoting other blogs/bloggers on social media.
Reading books for content.

Just keeping at it with patience and an open mind.
