Larissa from Larissa’s Life is visiting me today. Larissa is living a dream and I wanted to ask her a few questions. Here is what she had to say.
Please tell us a little about your blog.
Well, My blog started out as a personal outlet when I was living in Israel. But my reading got out of control last year and I started talking to authors and bloggers on twitter when a thought hit me: Why don’t I start posting reviews of all the books I’m reading on my blog... that was almost 1 year ago =)
How much time and energy do you put into your blog?
I post everyday and right now the blog is all I do. I don’t believe every blogger has the obligation of posting daily, but that is a choice I made a while back... I try to get at least 3 reviews up a week, 1 Interview w/ giveaway and the rest I have a couple features I like to do...
Do you enjoy doing memes and if so, which ones can be found on your blog?
I do enjoy it, but I can t seem to commit and do them weekly, so I do them when I feel like it. I also have a couple features that I created that I like to do... Like my Top 5 Sundays List, that I do every Sunday.
How would you describe your review style and how do you handle reviews when you didn't enjoy the book?
I think my reviews are usually laid back... I like to put myself and my personality into them. If it's a book I got for review, I'll tell why it wasn't my cup of tea in the most gracious way i can... if it was a book I bought, I might not post a review...
What can we expect from you in the future?
I wanna keep doing what Im doing and hopefully people will keep supporting it!
What advise would you give new book bloggers out there?
Don't try to be like anybody else. Do whatever feels right to you and try whatever you feel like trying. If something doesn't work out, move on and keep going... =)
