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 wish 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 don’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 I 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 […]

Bookish Discussions: Things I Learned from Blogging Part 1

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I have been blogging on and off since 2007 but I started book blogging about three years ago and I’m not looking back. I have been thinking of changing my blog a few times but for one reason or another, I keep coming back to book blogging and the book community in general. I guess you could say that I have found my niche. Of course, I’m not one of the popular bloggers and my blog is among the thousands out there already, but I like to think that I have a few loyal visitors (THANK […]
