Blogger Questions #14 | Is There A Proper Verb Tense To Use When Writing Reviews?

Blogger QuestionsHappy Hump Day, loves! Being the absolute genius that I am, I accidentally left my laptop at a friend’s house for a few days, and was unable to write up any posts. I’ve thankfully retrieved my precious device, and am hoping to post consistently once more! I’m aware that I mention how I’ll mend my posting routine each week, but I truly intend to this time around. If not, you all may hold it against me. Lately, I’ve been quite hypercritical of my own reviews, and have been scrutinizing each and every detail about them. From doing this, I’ve began to wonder if there is a proper verb tense to use when writing reviews.

Blogger Questions #13 | What Are “Unique Visitors”?

Blogger QuestionsHey dolls! I’m finally back with another blogger question! Wow, it’s been ages since I wrote one of these posts. Nevertheless, this question has been nagging me for the longest time. When I first joined Netgalley and Edelweiss +, I noticed how publishers would ask how many unique visitors my website had. Being the relatively new blogger that I am, I had absolutely no clue what this meant.

Blogger Questions #12 | How Do You Request Physical ARCs?

Blogger Questions

Hi everyone! I’ve been trying to read more ARCs this summer, and am so glad that I have made a bit of progress with that goal! I first joined Netgalley years ago when I had my first blog, but never ended up reading or reviewing the ARCs I received – I know, I’m an awful human being. Thankfully, I’ve been doing significantly better at reading and reviewing the books I receive. Now, I just have to work on publishing the reviews before the book releases. *guiltily looks away* I’m lucky enough to have a Kindle Paperwhite, where I can download all my ARCs onto, but have begun wondering how to receive physical ARCs.

Blogger Questions #11 | Do You Read Book Reviews For Sequels?

Blogger QuestionsHey dolls! For those of you in the United States, Happy Independence Day! I hope you all have a lovely holiday! I have a suspicion that July will be a month of sequel-reading for me. I’m planning on finally reading Tower of DawnI’ve been procrastinating reading this one for far too long! – and am hoping to make some progress with the Seven Realms and An Ember in the Ashes series. With so many reviews for books that are sequels appearing, I’ve began to wonder if individuals read these reviews if they haven’t read the first book.

Blogger Questions #10 | How Much Time Do You Dedicate To Blogging?

Blogger QuestionsHi lovelies! I apologize for disappearing for a few days. I was out of town, and didn’t have a chance to schedule any posts ahead of time! Whatever the reason may be, I’ve found myself partially in a reading slump. I’ve been reading Circe for nearly a month now, and while I am enjoying the story, I can’t find the drive to finish it. Every time I pick it up, I wind up only reading it for a few minutes before tucking the book away once more. I do have a blog tour post rapidly approaching, so whether I’m in a slump or not, I need to at least start on the book I need to review! Haha. Perhaps that will be the nudge I need to push myself back on track! This has all led me to start wondering how much time I should dedicate to my blog. Please don’t misunderstand me, I love both blogging and reading. But I have other priorities in my life as well, so it’s sometimes challenging to find the time to do these hobbies.

Blogger Questions #9 | What Is Edelweiss+?

Blogger QuestionsHello everyone! Summer vacation has been quite relaxing for me so far, and I hope yours is splendid too! I’ve been catching up on a couple ARC’s lately, and in my pursuit to acquire more books, I stumbled upon the website called Edelweiss +. I discovered this website several months ago, but after gazing at the interface in complete bewilderment for a grand total of 10 minutes, I promptly left the page with no intention to return. Sure enough, I found myself visiting the website once more. But, my question remains …

Bloggers Questions #8 | What Links Do You Include In Your Posts?

Blogger QuestionsHello everyone! Guess who caught another cold? I truly have the worst luck when there’s a bug flying around. Not two days after I finally recovered from my previous illnesses, I wound up contracting something new. Recently, I’ve been noticing how many bloggers include links in their reviews to where readers can purchase or find more information about the book (Amazon, Book Depository, Goodreads, etc.). Although links to these websites typically show up in reviews, I was wondering in what other kinds of posts most people include these links.

Blogger Questions #7 | How Many Times Do You Post A Week?

Blogger QuestionsHi everyone! I’m slowly dying from tech week; how have all your weeks been so far? Haha. This is one of the few weeks that I’m scheduling posts, and wow! It feels amazing. So much less stress! Today, I decided to ask another blogging question! Ever since I began blogging, I’ve been trying to figure out what the ideal number of posts should be a week. I used to consistently post once a day, but have recently trimmed this number down to 4-5 times a week. I’ve been wondering what is the average number of posts most bloggers publish a week.  I know everyone has their own schedule and no two blogs are the same, but I’ve been very curious to see what most people consider their ideal number to be.
