Top Ten Tuesday (28): Top Ten Blogging Confessions

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the gals at The Broke and the Bookish. For this week, here’s my… 

Top Ten Blogging Confessions…

 

I went through a blog-tour craze in the early months of my blog.
I wanted content, content, and more content for my blog so I signed up to all these book tour companies. I still have most of my days booked with blog tours but I am learning to temper this down. I wanted to add more discussion posts so I’m currently brainstorming on topics that I want to talk about on the blog.

 

NetGalley and Edelweiss approval/disapproval make or break me, for like 24 hours.
I get slightly depressed and sad whenever I don’t get approved for an eARC, especially the books that I’m dying to read now and won’t get published for another 2 to 3 months. The opposite can be said for whenever I get approved. Let’s just say I do a happy dance every time. But almost always in my head. 🙂

 

I feel bad (like I-betrayed-them bad) when I don’t get to reply to all the comments on my blog.
I read them all but if I’m really pressed for time, I’d rather go to their blogs to comment back instead of replying to their comments on mine.

 

I used to always write my post a day or two before my schedule.
Now, I am learning to write my posts in advance so I just have to click on that Publish button when it’s my schedule already. I’m still not sure how I can schedule my posts to go live on the right day and time.

 

I totally fan-girl and squeal (at least in my mind) whenever a favorite author of mine likes my review or post or just replies back to my tweets.
Or when they offer me eARCs of their soon-to-be-released and I’m like, yes, please, give them to me, thank you. The feeling is nothing short of awesome.
