Today I bring you a Book Tag, I thought was exactly what I was looking for and what I wanted to do today. This is the “Secret Life Of A Book Blogger” tag and I’ve been tagged by the wonderful and unique Destiny || Howling Libraries || whom I admire SO much, I think she’s such a great person and a huge inspiration for everyone in the community, if you don’t follow her blog, YOU MUST do it, it’s always full of wonderful content to check out. 😍

🌻 || How long have you been blogging? || 🌻

I’ve been blogging for a little more than 2 and a half years, it’s going to be 3 years in November. It’s crazy, time really flies when you do something you love. I’ve never been a consistent person, so I’m happy to have been able to keep the blog going, I think this is because I found something that I really enjoy doing and I’m always trying to outdo myself, which keeps me wanting to continue. Besides, obviously, all the love and support, and the fact of being able to share my love for reading are BIG factors for which I want to continue doing this for many years more 😊


🌻 || At what point do you think you’ll stop blogging? || 🌻

Honestly, I would do it forever!, but I don’t know, this isn’t something I think about, really, I enjoy it right now. I LOVE doing it, is something that brings me a lot of happiness and completes me in some way, so if I still feel this way many more years, I’ll continue doing it πŸ‘πŸ»


🌻 || What is the best thing about blogging? || 🌻

PEOPLE!!, I mean, YOU, of course. There’s nothing more beautiful than being able to share every moment of this journey with you, the interactions and the bonds I’ve created through the blog are gold, I’ll treasure them forever. Also, there’s nothing like talking to someone who shares the same passion about something as you, so it’s something really special and unique to me ❀️😭


🌻 || What is the worst thing? what do you do to make it okay? || 🌻

I guess the pressure can be a factor that affects me sometimes, but actually, it’s more like a pressure that I put on myself to try to make things better and better or try to fulfill with everything in a timely manner. I’m very demanding with myself and I’m learning to be more relaxed about blogging stuff, mainly, I think I’m in a point that I enjoy much more and I can be more honest with you about things I think and things that happen to me, so no doubt, the pressure to be relevant or whatever, used to keep me very nervous and stressed, but right now I’m at peace with my life as a blogger, and most of the time it’s an enjoyment 😊


🌻 || How long does it take you to make/find pictures to use? || 🌻

I usually find content to use on Pinterest, but then I usually edit it, I use a lot Canva, is a life-savior especially for someone with 0 aesthetic skills, like me. I learned a lot since I started with the blog, I learned to give credit to the creators, something I was totally ignorant about at the beginning, but now I understand the point and I always give credit to the creators of things so I hope I’m doing better in that. I’ve never wanted to be disrespectful in any way, but sometimes one simply has no knowledge about things that should be done and luckily I’ve had the opportunity to talk with people who have explained this kind of thing to me and I try not to abuse and give the best of me. Then, I use many gifs, in general from Giphy, I love that page! 😍


🌻 || Who is your book crush? || 🌻

Oh, you already know this, I’m always saying. πŸ˜… The Darkling is my beloved husband, and sometimes I also think of my first love, Magnus Bane. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH πŸ’•


🌻 || What author would you like to have on your blog? || 🌻

OMG, this is SO difficult! Right now, I’m in a stage of obsession by Seanan McGuire, this year I read most of her books and I’ve LOVED them, so would be a woman that I would LOVE to have on my blog to interview and chat about things, I think she has a brilliant mind when it comes to creating stories πŸ‘πŸ»


🌻 || What do you wear when you write your blog posts? || 🌻

This is so funny! πŸ˜‚ … in general, if I’m writing a post means that I’ve already come home from work and I like to get comfortable, so maybe I’m using joggings pants or pajama pants and slippers. When I’m at home I’m dressed as I please, like as terrible-combined as I can lol, so whenever I’m comfortable with, I’ll wear it πŸ˜…


🌻 || How long does it take you to prepare? || 🌻

I think it depends on the post I want to write, if they’re reviews, it takes me an hour and a half or two, if it’s another type of post, maybe I’ll make it faster, although I honestly love editing and I’m very picky, so it almost always takes me a little bit more of time. Also, in my case, it depends on the day and my mood, if I don’t feel very well maybe it takes a little longer, but if I’m in the mood I write very fast.πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Remember that English isn’t my mother tongue, so I have to be careful and check the post a lot of times, so, yes, it’s a process that I enjoy, though 😊


🌻 || How do you feel about the blogging community? || 🌻

I LOVE the community, especially the Book Bloggers Community, I think there are beautiful and very sweet people in the community always willing to help and give a hand when another needs it. I’ve recently seen some discussions about it on twitter, I know that some people think the community is very toxic, and, personally, I know there’s a part that can be kind of “toxic”, as in all communities, but I believe from the bottom of my heart, that’s a very small part, I think 90% of the members of the community have good intentions and good souls. I have always had the pleasure of interact with wonderful people and I feel honored by it. πŸ’–


🌻 || What do you think one should do to create a successful blog? || 🌻

WOW, this is a very complicated question to answer. I’ll be 100% honest, I don’t feel that I’m the one to give instructions or say what each of you should do with your blogs.
🌟 For me it’s something that you must do for pleasure and for love, you must be passionate about this to be able to enjoy the process, there will be good times and bad times where you’ll lack inspiration or you’ll not be sure about what to do, and I think it’s super normal and I still have those moments sometimes, but if it really is something you want to do, if your blog is important to you and you enjoy what it means, then you have an successful blog, you know?, for me it’s not about numbers, it’s something more than that, is about being pleased with your work, meeting wonderful people and finding and sharing your thoughts about books. It’s a discovery journey as well, and I think we should all take it that way and learn in the process while having a good time.
I think everyone should be proud of their blogs, not everyone can create content, and can be a long post or a short one, it doesn’t matter, you have something to say and you want to share it with the world and I call that successful.
I want you to always appreciate who you are and what you do because there’s no one out there like you, so take advantage of that and be yourself, that sounds cliche, but it will always be the key to that great things begin to arrive 🌟

  4. Sofii, first of all, thank you for your kind words. I’m having a bad mental health night (week, really) and I literally cried a little over the opening to your post, so just know you mean so much to me ❀ and I always love your tag answers! You have the most thoughtful and perfect answers to tags and this one was no exception haha. I always feel like we're so similar when I'm reading your thoughts! I'm so glad you've reached a point where you feel more peaceful with your blog. I'm the same way for the most part, it feels like I don't stress as much about my content anymore because I'm pretty content with the little family I've gotten to build up.
