1 WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING & WHY HAVE YOU KEPT BLOGGING?

I started blogging so I could have a place to talk about books. I have never had friends who read a lot or at all and the people in my family who did read, didn’t read the same types of books as I did so I wanted to have a space where I could be open and honest about what I was reading and could talk to other people about the same kinds of books!

Now, I blog because I genuinely love the books I talk about and the friends I’ve made through this platform. Also, funnily enough, blogging has introduced me to a whole other side of reading which is a big part of where my motivations and inspirations for new blog posts comes from!

2Β  WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF BLOG POST TO WRITE?

My favourite type of blog post to write is usually anything I can write quickly, so book tags and lists are really fun for me! Usually, anything with that kind of format makes me pretty happy because I really enjoy setting out blog posts.

3 WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 FAVOURITE BLOG POSTS?

These are the top 3 I’ve written most recently that I’m ridiculously proud of:

How To Get On Top of Your Netgalley Feedback Ratio

My 10 Step Guide To Growing Your Blog

How I Feel About JK Rowling Adding to Canon

4 WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO TO RELAX?

Honestly, this month reading has been a great relaxant! I’ve been really stressed because of Uni and the weather has been in the 30Β°C range which hasn’t been helping either. So, sitting down with a good book or a fun comic and a cold bottle of water has been doing wonders for my mental health.

Also, waking up at 6am has been ridiculously helpful because I always feel like I’m getting so much more done just with that extra hour.

5 WHAT ARE 3 OF YOUR FAVOURITE THINGS?

Reading, ASMR, walking my dog at the beach

6 WHAT ARE YOUR PROUDEST BLOGGING MOMENTS?

My proudest blogging moments are hard to pinpoint but probably when I made my last book tag with Rebecca & when I hit my second year of blogging. I’ll hit my third year in June this year and I’m super excited about it because June is going to be a really fun blogging month for me in terms of content!

7 WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF BLOGGING?

I don’t have many hobbies, especially in Summer because it’s just too hot & humid to do anything but, I’ve really been loving reading with a face mask on and nobody else in the house lately, It’s been really relaxing and my skin has been getting a lot better which is a plus!

8 DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY IN 3 WORDS

Loyal. Tired. Hungry.

9 WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 PET PEEVES

Public transport arriving early and not waiting.

People not understanding that I don’t drink alcohol.

People not using headphones. As far as I’m concerned if there is more than 1 person in the room you should use headphones. I’ll use them even if it’s just me and my dog in the room, I’m that intense about it.

10 WHAT’S SOMETHING YOUR FOLLOWERS DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I know I wrote the questions but I really had to think about this one because I’m pretty open on my blog.

You guys do know that I work hard to have my blog posts planned far ahead in advance, but did you know that last week I planned a blogging series for 2021 that focuses on YOU GUYS? It’s all about showing that I appreciate you and listen to what you say in the comments and I’m really hoping you guys are gonna dig it! The only problem is that it’s so far away!

  1. I haven’t done any tags for a year because I’ve been focusing on the personal posts that I want to publish so much. But now that I’m managing my time better, I think I can use some time to do tags again! And it’s awesome and crazy that you’ve already planned a series that is coming out a year later! I admire people that can plan ahead so much, haha.

    1. Haha, yes I do plan quite far ahead – especially if I know I want to do a blog series! I currently have 3 blog series planned for next year and 1 for 2021 which I’m really excited about them! πŸ’•

  2. Oh this is a fun tag! πŸ™‚ I’m with you on people not understanding that you don’t drink alcohol, this gets SO annoying sometimes. and wow, I admire you so much for planning out things that far ahead, you’re seriously a master of scheduling haha πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you! πŸ’• I completely agree, as soon as I hit 18 (legal drinking age in Aus) it was suddenly expected and I am NOT about it.
      Haha, thank you! I just love planning and I can’t ever work in a more laid back style!

  3. Thank you for the tag! It’s a really fun idea for a tag. I’ve been really bad at blogging lately…I haven’t posted once this year. Thanks for remembering me πŸ˜‰
    Also, those are 3 of my favourite things to do too πŸ’• And well done for being so prepared with your blog posts!

      Thank you so much! I didn’t realise it was so strange to plan so far ahead, but now I see that I might be a bit intense when it comes to planning my blog posts! πŸ˜‚

  4. Thank you for tagging me, Ellyn. You know I love you ❀ ❀

    Also people who don't wear headphones are the worst. I especially hate it at work when customers have their phone on speaker and are talking in the middle of the store. UM excuse me some of us don't want to hear your whole conversation. Just invest in a pair of headphones or hold the phone like a normal person. Lol that was a mini rant but it's just so annoying to me.

    1. Love you too, Rebecca! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ˜˜

      RIght??? Like, why can’t you have some decency and use headphones what the hell??? I agree it makes no sense why people can’t use headphones, it’s not like they’re hard to access! And yes to having conversations quietly, why you can’t you just keep your conversations to yourself???
      Lol, love your mini rants! 😍

  5. This heat is so tiring! its too hot to do anything but sit indoors and read aha. I left a block of chocolate on my desk by accident the night before last and I came home from work and it was just pure liquid!

    also loyal. hungry. tired is a mood!!!!

    I feel you one the headphones thing. I hate it so much when people don’t use head phones. My mum tells me to use headphones while she’s giving massages in a whole other room but then she was doing a course on the lounge next to me with the videos on LOUD while I was trying to read and she joked about how she should use headphones and I was very snarky “YES PLEASE DO”.

    This is a great tag! Great job Ellyn!

    1. I completely agree the heat is absolutely exhausting me! That’s awful, I can’t imagine what the clean up for that would have looked like!

      Haha, it’s literally my personality – loyal, hungry & tired! πŸ˜‚

      Headphones are a MUST! Haha, my mum does the same thing! She insists everyone use headphones but never uses them when she watches videos! πŸ™„

      Thank you! πŸ’•

      Right??? I have missed too many buses because I was literally a few metres away from the bus stop but the bus came early and the driver didn’t wait! It’s infuriating!

      Haha, loyal tired and hungry, IT ME! πŸ˜‚

  7. I found your blog through Destiny! Fantastic tag. I’m thrilled Destiny tagged me in her post. I can’t wait to do this one. I hear you about not drinking alcohol – My husband was like that for years, and still prefers other drinks over booze. So many people were surprised and shocked, so my answer has always been, “It works, he always volunteers to be the designated driver.” That said, he’s been a bit more adventurous in the last year in terms of drinking different beers, but he normally drinks water, sweet tea, or root beer.

    1. That’s amazing, Destiny is one of my best blogging friends!
      Thank you, I had a lot of fun creating it! Alcohol is a big thing for me and I’m really not a big fan of it but I’m okay with others drinking it, but it amazes me that that tolerance doesn’t go both ways.
