How I Keep Track of Blogging & Instagram Using a Digital Tracker

How I Keep Track of Blogging & Instagram Using a Digital Tracker

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Iโ€™ve been whining (yes whining) about my ultimate slump and I think I should shut up about it. That ultimate slump resulted in amazing thing, by the way, and I donโ€™t think Iโ€™m sorry it happened. I wrote a post about automating my blog posts to make it easier for me to format each post. Those tools are awesome, but the Google Calendar option doesn’t give me what I really need.   What is this amazing thing you ask? Well, itโ€™s this amazing online tool that I am currently using to organize my blog […]

Must Have Bookish Apps

Must Have Bookish Apps

Let’s talk about anything bookish! For a few years now, I’ve slowly been moving to digital formats when reading (or listening) to books. I’ve also been listening to audiobooks more, however this year, there’s about an equal split between audio and ebooks. Anyway, I wanted to share my favorite bookish apps that bookworms need to have if you don’t have it already. For Library Readers Libby & Hoopla Apps If you love to read library books, get the Libby app (run by Overdrive) AND the Hooplaย app. I wrote detailed descriptions for Libby and Hoopla, so you can go ahead and […]

Social Media Platforms that I Use

Social Media Platforms that I Use

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Let’s talk about Social Media platforms! Thank you to Renee @ Renne’s Bookcase for this topic! I never really thought about discussing this topic because I am actually not active in all the popular platforms! However, I have tried a few of them! But let’s talk about which ones I use on a daily basis – or at least, regularly. This means that I am active on that platform and I actually enjoy using it.   I’ve been using WordPress since 2008 and I have always been using it! I’ve been blogging since the […]

Do You Leave Comments on Book Reviews?

Do You Leave Comments on Book Reviews?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! A few months ago, I wrote about commenting on blog posts. However, inย the last few weeks, I got to thinking. I don’t really get many comments on my book reviews. And this IS a book blog, right? So, this got me wondering, do you leave comments on book reviews? This made me think โ€“ do I comment on book reviews on other blogs? Why yes, I doโ€ฆ sometimes! I have also found that a few bloggers comment on my book review posts! Ultimately, book review posts are not popular on my blog if I just […]

Blog for Pleasure, Not Pressure

Blog for Pleasure, Not Pressure

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I’ve been trying to write this post for a while now and I’m glad that I am finally going to talk about this! See, a couple of months ago, I read a few posts by book bloggers about getting overwhelmed with blogging. This is totally understandable, especially if you are a new blogger (bookish or otherwise). In fact, there are a ton of articles talking about growing your email lists, increasing your stats and visits and whatnot and it does get overwhelming. In fact, I really don’t have a good advice for you other than […]

I Wish Blog Email Subscriptions Had a Format

I Wish Blog Email Subscriptions Had a Format

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   One of the ways I love to support my favorite blogs is to subscribe to their RSS via email. I ONLY subscribe via email to those blogs I ACTUALLY read and visit regularly. Because of this, I have come across a slight issue that is bothering me: I wishย blog email subscriptions had a format. But before I delve into the issues, I want to talk about the reasons why I prefer email subscriptions. The reasonS being: There are just too many contests/giveaways that require you to follow via [insert follow option here] I donโ€™t […]

4 Easy Peasy Ways to Automate Your Blog Posts

4 Easy Peasy Ways to Automate Your Blog Posts

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I have been blogging for a number of years and it used to be a chore for me. I am a stickler for uniformity and Iย LOVE to have a format/look for each of my posts. I used to take SO MUCH TIME just formatting my posts and it came to a point where I dreaded posting. Most especially when reviewing them because I also want to include the book details and everything! The good news is, I have found a better way to automate all my posts, not just review posts, but ALL of my […]

Creating a Blogging Schedule that Works for You

Creating a Blogging Schedule that Works for You

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I am perhaps what one might call a seasonal blogger. It does seem like a blog more often or not depending on the season. I am a mood reader and apparently, this also means I am a mood blogger. Also, I have seen quite a number of bloggers say how they want to post more or how they don’t have time to post. YEAH, THESE ARE EXACTLY MY PROBLEMS, TOO! Anyway, because of my faults, I have set-up a blogging schedule that works perfectly for me and I hope, for you as well! TIP: Create […]
