Top Ten Tuesdays: Things That Make Your Life As A Reader/Book Blogger Easier

Another round of TTT by the lovely people over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week the theme is Top Ten Things That Make Your Life As  A Reader/Book Blogger Easier

I really try not to be sarcastic. But the very first thing I thought of is…

1)      My computer.  Without it I don’t know how the blogging would commence .
2)      Coffee. Tea. Wine. Water. They all make blogging easier. Well they help make the words flow. Coherent or not.
3)      Goodreads. I found out about this site about 2 years ago, kind of doing half ass reviews on there but not really putting effort into them. I love that I can pick out books I want to read and see my recommended reading lists.
4)      Other book blogs. I love looking through them, picking up pointers, things I want to add to mine. Also, I like looking through them to see what me as a reader likes on a blog: font, pics, etc.
5)      Friend’s reviews and recommendations of books. Sometimes based on someone else’s opinions of the book I reassess mine. Plus they keep me being from a complete book reader.
6)      Chapters. If I could get locked in a store, it would be this one.  I seriously pick my books based on what is on the front tables.
7)      My trusty little note pad. I think my brain thinks I’m in school having to write a book report when I am reading. I have little notes strewn across my notebook for when it comes times to review I can just look at this to see my thoughts at the time.
8)      Bloglovin’. I love this site. It has helped me connect with fellow bloggers and too find a whole array of blogs that I know devotedly follow.
9)      My job. I hate my job. I sit here and do nothing. And if I didn’t get paid so so so good I would leave. The plus side of this job is that because I do nothing it gives me time to work on my blog and read. 2 pluses.
10)  Weekly memes like this one. I find they really help connect people and give me a schedule to follow while blogging too!


  1. I have some similar to yours. I put down yearly planner, because I write in the dates of when my book tour stops are, Netgalley arcs archived for, etc. Thanks for sharing these.

    1. I really should use a calendar more! Oraganization just isn't my forte! oops!

  2. Yay for us having lousy, but time-filled jobs!

    And LOL number 2. So true!

    1. Gotta love the soul sucking jobs hey? Thats probably why #2 is so important!

  3. Ahaha! Yes, a computer is very useful isn't it? ;) I definitely love my laptop!

  4. Hahaha! I forgot to list my computer! And about Bloglovin', I really haven't used mine yet but now I'm thinking that I probably should, since a lot of people seem to be raving about it. Anyway, you've got a great list! Thanks for sharing it with us! x

    1. Bloglovin' is a good way to keep your favorite bogs in one place. I think you'll like it!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I definitely couldn't enjoy blogging without my tea. Thanks for stopping by The Book Connection.
