Another day another award post, and if you’ve ever been curious about the blogger behind the blog then this is (one of) the post(s) for you. I was tagged by The Orangutan Librarian. Thanks for the tag, I had a lot of fun answering the questions for this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
Briefly explain your blogging style (Your favourite blogging spot/tools – As in, on the couch using your Smartphone or something).
My favourite blogging spot, and the place where nearly all my blogging is done, is my chair in my room. It’s in front of my bookshelves and my TV so I have a music video channel (usually 4Music) playing in the background, a cup of tea nearby, and my laptop on my lap.
Every so often though, if I’ve finished a book I’m reading and I’m not in the mood to pick up something else immediately after, I will use my iPhone to comment/blog hop on my commute home.
How do you manage your blogging time including blog reading time?
Not very well is the short answer. On weekdays when I come home in the evenings after work I focus on commenting and blog hopping before anything else.
I only write new posts on the weekends when I have more time in the day to spend on WordPress. Currently I have over 30 posts saved in my Drafts folder, which has been a lifesaver because after a full-on day at work and then a couple of hours of blog hopping I’d never have the energy to write and publish a new post as well.
Who is your most read author?
So far I’ve read thirteen of his books, and if he keeps releasing them that number will get higher and higher. At the moment those thirteen books don’t take into account his Magnus Chase or Trials of Apollo series’ which I haven’t started yet.
How did you come up with your blog name?
There’s no special meaning behind my name, like I know there can be for other bloggers. I wanted to include something book/reading related because of what I was going to be posting about (books) so I spent an hour or two playing around with different words until I found a combination that was available and that I felt fit.
Reading Every Night was perfect because it’s pretty much what I do.
What keeps you blogging?
Two things. First is the community and the amazing friends I’ve made, interacting with everyone on WordPress is what makes the long hours blogging takes worthwhile, and second is simply because I love it. Blogging is a hobby and the only reason I see myself stopping is if it ever becomes more of a chore than anything else, but fingers crossed that won’t happen anytime soon.
I’m not going to tag anyone in the Brotherhood of the World Bloggers Award, but if you want to take part then consider yourself tagged.
What’s everyone else’s blogging style; do you have the TV on in the background while replying to comments, or do you need complete silence to focus on blog hopping? How did you come up with your blog name? Who is your most read author? Let me know.
