My friend, Jenny over at Book Doll (bookdoll.blogspot.com) interviewed me! I talk about books, blogging, fashion and more!
Alice Jane Chen of the book blog Crazy Red Pen has been one of my best friends for such a long time. I discovered the world of blogging through her and was lucky enough to be able to interview her about blogging, books and more!
1. Wow, you’ve been blogging for about three years already! What has kept you motivated to blog for all this time?It’s more like I’ve been seriously blogging for around a year. My other two years were spent writing about random stuff. And I mean random… I feel so embarassed about my posts from two or even three years ago… But back to motivation behind blogging. It’s really all about time management and doing something that you like. If you like what you’re doing enough, you’ll set apart enough time to do it. It really doesn’t have to be a book blog; it can be anything.2. How would you say your blog has changed over the years?I think it’s gotten a lot more focused. I read YA a lot more way back but my older posts were just short summaries with something along the lines of “written well, I loved it, etc.” I was also into making what I call “artsy-fartsy” book pictures to accompany the posts but I don’t really have time to do that anymore. Maybe I should bring it back…? It’s harder now since some books I read are e-books so it’s a lot harder to photograph…In addition, I think I’ve found my “voice” so to speak. If you can find your voice (who you are, how you blog, etc.) then blogging becomes so much easier and a lot less burdensome.
