The Book Blogger Tag

Book Blogger Tag

I saw this tag over at Stefani’s blog I Read Books so decided to tag myself and answer the questions. Here goes:

1. How many times do you check your email a day?

Quite a lot….over breakfast, over lunch and in the evening if I’m just sitting around.

2. How many times are you on Goodreads?

I generally only use Goodreads to track the books I’ve read and what page I’m on. Although I do check out reviews after I’ve read a particular book, never before. I’m aware that others use it more socially; conversations and liking, commenting on reviews etc, I just don’t have the time to keep track of it all and find it’s just another platform that needs to be monitored.

3. How long does it take you to edit your posts?

Some posts can take half an hour, others take hours. I don’t spend a lot of time faffing with images, they are what they are. Usually the books that I loved the most tend to be ones that take the longest to write strangely.

4. What kind of laptop do you use?

I have a Toshiba something something, it’s about 8 years old but my brother did give it an overhaul so runs like new. I’m not really into technology and its adequate for my needs so I’m happy with it.

5. How often do you check Twitter?


I was one of those people that was never going to use Twitter, couldn’t see the point in it – until I tried it and then I was addicted. I find it much more engaging and interesting than Facebook (I find Facebook is predominantly video and Minion sharing and not much else).

6. Why do you use the blogging website you do?

I use the free edition of WordPress now. When I first started I had a go with Blogger but I never really gelled with it. At work, we use WordPress so it made sense to switch as I could ask colleagues for help if ever needed and its dashboard is so easy to navigate. I’m pondering the idea of switching to self-hosted WordPress in 2016.

7. Are you good at keeping up with reviews, tags, etc?

I’m pretty good, as it stands I only have one outstanding review to write. I don’t get tagged in a lot of tags, if I see one I like I’ll take part.  The thing I struggle with most is keeping up with comments and visiting other blogs in return.

8. How many times a week do you post?

I generally try to post 3 times a week as a minimum on the same days for consistency and so I can plan better.

Wednesday – WWW Wednesday meme
Saturday – will usually be a book review  or book related post
Sunday – a ‘Novice Baker‘ recipe or baking related post

If I have additional book reviews or extra content such as tags, blog tours or guest posts I try and fit these in around my scheduled stuff.

So that’s me and how things happen behind my blog. If you’re a book blogger, established or newbie, please tag yourself. Do let me know if you have a go as I’d love to see your answers 🙂

    Yaay! Glad you decided to tag yourself. I also use a Toshiba Satellite (mine is almost brand new though) but I also completely depend on my brother when it comes to technology. He picks everything I buy for me hahha….Ah, Twitter, you should give me some tips 😀 And I also want to move to self-hosted but I dont have a clue how to do it hahha 🙂

    What would we do without our brothers! (be technologically blind probably).
    You can pay WordPress to transfer you but I think it’s rather expensive and from the how to guides I’ve seen it’s not overly difficult to do yourself, think you just need to plan what you’re doing and make the time available. Oh and source a reliable host beforehand.
