Blogger Interview: Romance Book Junkies
Please meet my blogging buddy, Danielle from Romance Book Junkies. I love Danielle’s blog as we both love romance and if there is a little paranormal thrown in, all the better – I visit almost every day.
Danielle, thank you for being such a good sport and answering a few of my questions. Let’s get right to the nitty-gritty :)
Please tell us a little about your blog and what we can expect from you in the future.
My blog is a romance book blog. I read and review mostly adult novels but I will read the occasional YA novel. Besides reviews I also have author spotlights featuring authors I have read and enjoyed. I will never do a author spotlight or giveaway if I haven't read and enjoyed at least one of their books. For most of my author spotlights I also host a giveaway of one of their books so that you have a chance of reading one of their books for free. I also host Monthly Book Giveaways every month were you could win a new release book coming out that month.
Why did you start blogging? And how long has it been?
I started blogging because I wanted to help people make good decisions about which books they read. Hopefully my book blogging friends and I can keep you from wasting your money buying bad books. I also wanted to have a place to keep track of all the books I read and my thoughts on them because I have a terrible memory and tend to unknowingly read books over again. Blogging is a labor of love for me and I really enjoy it so I think I would be happy even if no one read any of my reviews. Don't get me wrong I LOVE each and every one of my readers.I started blogging on August 2, 2010.
How much time and energy do you put into your blog?
I put a lot of time into my blog probably at least a couple of hours every day which includes reading other blogs posts. You can even ask my husband. hehe :)
Do you enjoy doing memes? Which ones can be found on your blog?
I do enjoy some of the memes. I participate in the 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along, Teaser Tuesday, Do you judge a Book by the Cover? on Thursday, Follow Friday and The Blog Hop. I think the memes are a great way to meet new book blogging friends.
How would you describe your review style?
I like to give as much information as possible about the book I'm reviewing such as the series, pages, genre and the author's website. I post the Goodreads blurb first so that I can focus on my thoughts about the book instead of giving a summary of the book. In my review I try to touch on all the different elements of the story and recommend who I think would enjoy it. At the end I will give the book a rating and offer a link were you can purchase the book.
What advise would you give new book bloggers out there?
I would tell all the new book bloggers to get out there and make a lot of friends in the blogosphere. I also think its important to try and post something every day or as much as possible to keep people coming.
Great advise, Danielle. Thank you once again.
