Behind the Blog: Posts

I’ve decided that over this weekend I’m going to be posting the whole Behind the Blog series! Todays post is all about how I think of blog post ideas, posting them, etc.

How do you think of ideas for blog posts?

They come to me at the most random times! Sometimes I’ll just be sitting in class and I’ll think of one. I also get inspired by other peoples blog posts. For example, this series was inspired from the “Secret Life of the Blogger” tag that I kept seeing all over my feed.

Do you post more book reivews or tags?

Book reviews! I only started doing tags a few weeks ago but I’ve been posting reviews since the start of my blogging career.

What posts do you read in your feed?

I read a lot of reviews! I espeically like to read reviews for books that I’ve read so I can see how my opinion matched up to the reviewer’s. I think book reviews are a great way to discover new books, so that’s one of the things I look out for the most. I don’t read too many tags. If I get tagged I’ll read them, but other than that they don’t really interest me as much as reviews.

What are your favorite original posts?

How long does it take you to research and write your posts?

Reviews can take me anywhere from 15-40 minutes to write, depending on how much I have to say. Tags take me around 15-20 minutes. Hauls and other lists posts take 10-15 minutes.

Which post has taken you the longest to write (so far)?

This post, All About Subscription Boxes, took me about two hours to complete. I researched eight different supscription boxes for books and makeup. Once I had completed the research, I figured out which was the most/least expensive, which contained the most items, etc. It took me a while but I’m really proud with how it came out!

How often do you post?

I try to post every other day, but it doesn’t always work out that way with schoolwork.

That’s all for today! If you have any questions or comments leave them below! What should I post more of?

xx, Sophie
