Thank you The Broke and the Bookish for this wonderful Tuesday Meme
This week’s topic doesn’t really involve books, but instead it’s all about the blogging and reading life. Here are the things that make my life and Anjie’s life easier when it comes to blogging and reading!
Veronica’s List: Things That Make Your Life As A Blogger Easier
1. Scheduling Posts
I love that little feature that lets you schedule a post ahead of time. I can write the review the day before and schedule it to publish the next morning. I don’t have to worry about publishing it in the morning. It has been scheduled. Bam! That easy. 🙂
I’m starting to learn more html daily and learning the codes to do fancy stuff makes it easier to make things fancy, but also faster. Wait, did that sentence make sense? I”m going to say yes for now.
I create templates of my reviews, book spotlights, etc. Having a template to follow makes it easier than trying to remember or search for my earlier post to see how I structured it.
4. Social Media
Tumblr and Twitter help get the word out. Promoting your blog has never been easier.
5. Blogger Family
My blog family, those whose blogs I visit frequently and my staff (Yes, Anjie, I’m talking about you), make my blogging experience a happier one. Without them, it wouldn’t be so much fun (Well it would still be fun because BOOKS, but they make it funner.) Happier = Easier 🙂
Anjie’s List: Things That Make Your Life As A Reader Easier
It’s a great place to read reviews and organize your books. I also love that you can add the date when you read a particular book. It’s all so organized.
I’ve met so many fangirls on tumblr and they’re always, always, recommending books to me and they’re also there to help me cope with the harder feels. (Veronica: Let’s talk about The Infernal Devices Trilogy! *cries*)
I buy books here sometimes, but the feature I really love is when they show recommendations based on books I’ve previously bought or looked at. It opens up more options!
9. Movie Adaptations
Weird, I know, but some books I’ve never heard of get made into movies. I then see the trailer and the famous “Based on a novel by ..” appears, I google it and purchase it. (This happened to me with the Percy Jackson series, The Host, The Hunger Games, The Help, and some others).
My new favorite place to buy books! They have some of the most amazing deals I’ve ever seen! Sure the books are used but they don’t looked used at all. More books, more reviews 🙂 (Veronica: I would like to point out that you have yet to write a review for this blog. Get on it! ❤ )
What makes your blogging experience easier? What makes your reader life easier?

Great list! I never thought about it but movie adaptations are definitely a way of discovering new books! I don’t think I would’ve gotten around to Louis de Bernieres’ Captain Corelli’s Mandolin or Sebastien Japrisot’s A Very Long Engagement sooner if I didn’t watch the adaptations first…
The day I discovered templates was the day my life changed! Great list!
Yes, templates are life changing! 🙂 thank you!
Great list! I love the scheduling option too. Makes life a lot easier! 🙂
Thanks! And I just love scheduling posts! 😁
I wonder at the creativity of people, because when I tried making a list in my head, I barely got past 3. Haha.
I agree with tumblr, although I’m not using it anymore. I used to with photography, and now, I tried with bookish stuff, but I totally failed. Hit me.
Maybe I’ll make a blog post asking for people’s Tumblr blogs, before making another Tumblr.
Haha, thank you! Well to be fair, there’s two people running this blog so we have an extra mind.
Definitely do that! I’d follow you on tumblr. I think it’s just such a great community and great place to meet people and discuss books!
Thank you for stopping by!
When I created this blog I was very familiar with tumblr, so that helped. Also, like Anjie said, two people run this blog so two heads think better than one. If one of us gets stuck, the other is there to help. 🙂
Goodreads is awesome, I don’t remember what I did before it! 😀
And scheduling is gold! I have been using it a lot lately and it’s a lifesaver.
It is! Before goodreads I was limited to the books the bookstore sold, now it’s a while new world! Scheduling has saved me several times too. Thanks for stopping by! 😀
Tumblr is surely a good place if you want to uncotrollably fangirl with someone without being judged. A lot.
Haha! Yes! I totally agree! It’s great 🙂 thank you for stopping by!
