So far, I have done guides on what ARCs are, how to request them, how to use NetGalley and Edelweiss and how to go about DNF and negative review. What I was trying to do was put together a comprehensible guide addressing all aspects of book blogging, not just talking about my opinion but also talking to authors, publishers and especially other bloggers to get their opinion.
Then I went on a semi-involuntary hiatus and have only just got back.
Now I am looking to pick this feature back up, and I need your help!
Here are the topics I want to look at in the next few weeks:
- How to format a book review.
- How to stay organised when running a book blog and having a life.
- What makes a good blog?
- How important is social networking when running a book blog?
- Reading slumps, what they are and how to escape them?
And as well as putting my own opinions out there, I want your thoughts on these topics, so below is a list of questions. If you could answer even just one of these, I would be very happy. Please also make sure I can access your blog so I can link to you in the post.
1. What do you think makes a good book review? Format and structure wise as well as any 'turn offs' in book reviews you may have.
2. Bloggers, do you schedule your reviews? How do you keep on top of your TBR to review pile? Do you list? Etc.
3. How often do you blog, how often do you want to blog. Does real life keep you from blogging as much as you would like to?
4. For you, what makes a good blog design? What makes a bad blog design?
5. What do you think should be the most visible things on a blog?
6. How often do you social network (for your blogging, not personal).
7. Do you feel like social networking benefits you as a blogger? Why?
8. When is the last time you had a reading slump? How long did it last and how did you get out of it?
9. Is it important to you that reading stays something fun for you?
