Interview with Jenn from Bound to Writing

Welcome back for another interview with a book blogger. My guest today is Jenn from Bound to Writing. Let's give her a warm welcome

Interview with Jenn from Bound to Writing

1) Introduce yourself. Who are you? Where are you from? and Where do you blog?
My name is Jenn and I’m a book blogger and self-published author. I’m from New Jersey and we don’t act anything like the people from the Jersey Shore. I blog at Bound to Writing.

2) Why and how do you blog? What made you start?
I started blogging after I finished a social media marketing class in college. We had to run out own blogs for the class and I loved the idea of starting my own not based on social media. I’ve always had a love for books and writing so I started my own book and writing blog.

3) How long have you been blogging?
I recently passed my 1 year anniversary of blogging.

4) What advice do you wish you'd had when you started?
That it’s a lot of work. I never realized how much time and effort it takes to run a blog. Even after a year, there is still so much to do with creating posts and posting on social media that it takes a lot of time.

5) How much time do you devote to blogging each day/week/month?
Each day, I try to spend at least an hour to two hours blogging. Whether it’s blog hopping, writing posts, or on social media.

6) How often do you post to your blog?
Currently, I post 4 times a week.

7) What motivates you to keep blogging about books?
What motivates me is that I love the community. I love interacting with everyone and sharing my thoughts about books and my own writing.

8) Is there something you wish authors knew about your blog or blogging?
I wish authors knew how much effort book bloggers put into reading and reviewing their books. It’s extremely time consuming and sometimes it feels like they don’t understand that.

9) What's your most popular blog post?
WritingResources: Pinterest Writing Boards. I’ve never seen a post so popular on my blog. It discusses writing boards that I’ve found very useful on Pinterest.

10) Do you write reviews for every book you read?
Yes! If I finish a book, I like to share my thoughts on it. I started my blog to share my thoughts about bookish topics and it’s only fair that my followers know what my thoughts are on all the books I’ve read.

11) How many book reviews do you normally do a week?
I’ve recently changed my schedule so I only post my book reviews every other week. But those posts contain reviews for the books I’ve read over that period of time.

12) What genres are your favourites?
I love all things YA. My favorite genres in YA are contemporary, romance, and mystery.

13) What are you currently reading and why did you choose to read it?
Forever Disguised by Annie Woods! I was given a review copy of this book, but I chose to read it because I loved First Came Forever, which is the first book of the series. I am definitely going to be spending a lot of time awake tonight to read this one!

14) Do you have any plans for your blog in the future?
My mind is always thinking of new content for my blog, but it will always remain a book and writing blog.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the interview with Jenn. As I'm a book blogger/author too I was particularly interested in her answers.

  4. Great interview Jo and Jenn. You are both fab!

  5. I completely agree.. A blog is a lot of work! Great interview!

    1. Blogging is a lot of work. I don't think a lot of people realise quite how much work goes into creating posts, marketing, and all the other tasks needed to run a successful blog. That a big reason for why I'm doing these interviews. I want to show people the behind the scenes of blogging so they understand just how much effort it takes. I also want to showcase some of the bloggers that are doing an amazing job with their blogs.

  6. Great interview! And I completely agree about the advice part. I didn't realize how much work blogging would be when I first started. I still love doing it though!

    1. Thanks. I'm the same. Blogging is a lot of work, but I love it.

  7. Great interview. It is true that blogging takes lots of time but it is also highly rewarding

  8. Love these posts! Great interview - I followed some of those Writing Boards, they look awesome.
