The Liebster Award!
Hello bookworms and welcome back to my blog! For this post, as you have already guessed by the title and image, I am bringing to you my nominations for the Liebster Award! I have done this once before, but I am happy to do it again, as it has definitely been a while. I cannot remember who nominated me so if you are reading this, and you are the person who nominated me, please say so and I will mention you and thank you! (I have a horrible memory).
And so, without further delay, let me get into the questions I was given!
The Questions . . .
What do you blog about and what makes you so passionate about it?
I blog about all things bookish. I do book reviews, memes, tags and all of that fun stuff that is all related to books. What makes me so passionate about that? Well, books are an integral part of my life and I came into this blog with a purpose for sharing that love. The fact that so many people respond and discuss with me makes me even more passionate about this blog.
Favourite thing you’ve blogged about this year?
Okay… now this one is a hard one. Let’s see, there’s my post of my meet and greet with Craig Silvey which was amazing, my book chat for Heir of Fire and Crown of Midnight, and definitely my Top Five Favourite Books of the Year So Far post! But I consider all of my posts a favourite so, this question is basically non-existent.
How did you get into blogging?
One day I got up and decided, I am going to start a blog. So I looked up the best blogging platforms, liked the WordPress format and layout the most attractive, and built my blog.
Favourite go-to snack when writing a post?
Um, does tea count? As a solid snack, I love nibbling on cheezels when I’m writing a blog. They are just cheesy heaven in your mouth! (I could eat them all day everyday – healthiness? Eh…)
Is blogging a hobby or more of a job for you?
I consider it a passionate hobby and a willingly unpaid job. I love it. I will consider it as my online non-profit job for now. If I get paid to do it, then that would be even better! But it’s a job I am happy to continue for the rest of my life.
How often do you post a week?
As of lately, I have been posting pretty much every day of the week. I post at minimum three posts a week and at maximum, every day of the week. I just love it that much.
What do you do outside of blogging?
Well, I read. On a series note, I am in my last year of high school (finally). I do lots of things outside of blogging, such as performing and singing, I am involved in a Christian youth group, which I love to death, I have a job (yay, money!) and I also am working on my very own novel!
Book that changed your life?
This is a hard question to answer. A book that changed my life? Ah… I’d have to say The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien. Why? Well, my primary school teacher gave this to me to read, and after reading it, I fell completely in love with fantasy books and books in general. So I guess you could say that was the turning point in my life where I became josiethebookworm.
How long have you been blogging?
Since January 2015! So I’ve been blogging for half a year now. Holy freakin’ moly, time goes so incredibly fast!
What other social network sites are you a part of?
When do you blog? Morning or night?
I publish my posts between the late afternoon to night, because most of you guys are in a different time zone to me. But as of lately, I try to write my blog posts in advance in the early mornings (waking up at 5am to do so).
