- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Showcase the award pic.
- Answer the questions.
- Nominate 3+ bloggers.
1. What is your blog’s name and why did you call it that?
‘The Bookish Underdog’. I originally came up with this for my Bookstagram (bookish Instagram), as everybody else seemed to have thousands of followers and I thought I’d never catch up! (Still not likely to catch up, either!) Then I just transferred it to my blog and my YouTube. I’m not sure if I like it so much now though…
2. How long have you been blogging?
I’ve been doing my book blog since January this year but have been blogging on and off since university. Originally I had a beauty blog but never updated that, then I had an arts and crafts blog but the book blog is the one I stuck with!
3. How many followers do you have?
59 in total, and I get so excited every time someone follows me!
4. Who was your first follower?
Sissy Lu at Book Savvy Reviews!
5. What got you into blogging?
I’ve always been interested in blogging because it’s a good way to make sure that I’m writing. Like I said, originally I wanted to do a beauty blog, but I don’t really have anything new to bring to the world of online beauty. Then one day I was trawling the internet and realised… ‘Hang on… people talk about BOOKS?!’
6. What is your favourite part about blogging?
I like that it’s a way for me to ensure that I’m writing every day (or nearly every day), even if it’s not creative writing. And I love the blogging community. HEY INTERNET FRIENDS!
7. If you could improve anything about WordPress or blogging, what would it be?
I do find WordPress to be a bit of an awkward site in some ways. Like, why isn’t there just a regular search bar? Why do I have to add tags to follow just so I can search for this one thing, one time? IT MAKES NO SENSE.
8. Why do you continue to blog?
At the moment, I just really love it! I also have no one in real life that I can speak to about books, because no one around me cares about books or wants to talk about them at length.
