I’ve officially fallen down the “clickbait” hole. But ya no, in a world where 4 billion bloggers are all trying to achieve the same thing and all want dem viewz, you’ve gotta do what you can to stand out, haven’t you? Anyway, I pinched this tag from Hello Bexa (you can find her post here) partially because it looked fun and partially because I was a little stuck for July content ideas and you can’t go wrong with a tag every now and again. So here we are, with another tag post!
Earlier this year, I was sent a copy of No Sad Songs by Frank Morelli to review. Now I don’t usually accept review requests anymore; in fact, I never do. As much as I’d love to read all the books in the world, it’s simply no feasible for me to accept every book review request I get but sometime piqued my interest about this one so I decided to give it a go. I love YA and would love to explore it more and No Sad Songs was a good place to start, as it covers some sensitive topics as well and touching on all the typical “YA” type elements, such as teenage angst, school, friendship and crushes. Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for No Sad Songs and have a Q&A with the author, which I hope you enjoy!
Last month, I was lucky enough to receive a bookish subscription box from Magic Chest to review. If you read my review of that box here, you’ll know that I absolutely loved it. It was such a well put together box, with amazing contents and an incredible sounding book to go with it. Obviously, these incredible bookish subscription boxes don’t fall from the sky; there’s always some hard working individual/s behind them. So today, I’m having a chat with Klara, the brain-power and mastermind behind the Magic Chest box where we talk about what the box entails, inspiration and the inner workings of having your own business!
Once again, another book tag stolen from Kris from Boston Book Reader (thanks!) If you love books and fun bookish tags and posts, then her blog is the place to go! I’ve been really trying to up the amount of bookish themed content on my blog recently. I’m writing this in April and over the coming months, I have more book reviews scheduled than I have done in the past half a year! I’m really enjoying reading at the moment (I’m currently reading When Breath Becomes Air – if you’ve read it, please talk to me!) and blogging more about books takes me back to my roots in a way. Books are the reason I blog; without them I wouldn’t be here so I’ll always be eternally grateful to those wonderful little masterpieces.
A couple of years ago, I did a post called the “random questions generator Q&A” which was, well, what it says on the tin really. I found a random questions generator online, generated 10 random questions (blimey, imagine that!) and answered them in a Q&A! So I thought this would be a fun post to do again because you don’t know what questions you’re going to get and you’re likely going to be answering something a little different from the good old, “why did you start blogging?”. So, I generated 10 questions and I’m answering every question that came up and not skipping any – cos that’s cheating. Here’s what I got!
I haven’t done a bookish tag post in soooo long. I used to do a fair few of them in the early years of my blog, when I blogged predominantly about books but as of late, not many tags have come my way. So thank you to Kris from Boston Book Reader for tagging me in this one! It looks like fun and hopefully you’ll learn a bit more about my bookish loves, hates and habits!
I know Mother’s Day was months ago now but during that period, I saw a few fun videos on YouTube where people were doing Q&A’s or videos with their Mum. I love watching these videos as they’re always so interesting so I thought of doing my own little Q&A with my own Mum (obviously… it wouldn’t be with someone else’s would it?) I asked about on Twitter and got some questions so let’s meet my Mum and A some Q’s!
I decided to go ahead with a “bit of everything” Q&A today and I have a bunch of questions below, which came from people on Twitter, some serious, some really, really not. I always enjoy doing random Q&A type posts sometimes for no other reason than I can’t think of anything else to write but I do enjoy reading them as well as you always learn something new about the blogger behind the blog!
I’m an online business owner and naturally because of that, I’m self-employed as well. And I’m always open to talk about that area of my life; because it is such a huge and important part of it. Today, I’m teaming up with FSB to do a little Q&A to answer your questions about self-employment and owning a business. Although please do note that these answers are from my own personal experience and I cannot speak for anyone else and their own experiences. All business work in different ways but I think it’s a brilliant thing to do and would always recommend it; if you ‘re able to. FSB offer a ton of advice and tips for people looking to start their own business so if you need any extra guidance, their website is a great place to head to! On with the Q&A shall we? These are questions from Twitter and a link to the person who asked them.
