Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Cambria Hebert where Cambria will pop a question and we will be exchanging our links and check out each other's answers!
Tell Me Something...
What is it about books that makes you want to blog about them? What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Truth to be told, I am a sucker for book covers.
When a book cover captivated me, I will be "drafting" the blog post even before I read them. In my head I will be thinking of the colors that I will use, the intonation of my posts and probably the pictures I could relate my posts to (which is kind of hard). Not taking into account the content of the story, I feel very driven and passionate to write a blog post for a book with an awesome cover. (All those talk about not judging a book by it's cover makes me sound like I'm bull-crapping ;p ). I know we shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but books are sold because of their covers.
To not beat around the bushes. THE COVER makes me want to blog about them. (And of course, the amazing story behind the covers sealed the deal...)
I am a goth-at-heart, I will always orientate myself to dark colors even if I loved the bright colors. (Hence the mixture of dark background with bright wordings in my blog), therefore dark and gothic covers always seemed to attract my interest (no wonder my bookshelf looked so dark) and makes me excited to write a review!
What's my favorite thing about blogging? Besides the opportunity to ramble and rant continuously on my favorite subject in a long blog post (thus perfecting my reviewing skills - New Year's Resolution Goal number 4 and practice my typing speed), I love receiving feedbacks! The comments and replies always made my day no matter how short or brief it is. They encouraged me to write better posts and taught me to put my heart into what I am writing. Apart from that, I really loved dropping by other people's blogs to read and comment on their posts because I know, like me, they would also appreciate my effort. Plus, blog hopping is FUN.
I know I have been missing a few TMST posts (which I am regretting because I love answering those questions!) and haven't gotten around to check your posts lately, but I am trying my best to include 'blogging' into my daily agenda, and also "GR-ing", gotta love that website! Looking forward to the following Tuesdays!
