Brotherhood of the World Award


Hello all! It’s been a while since I’ve done an award post, but I absolutely had to do this one, cos the questions are seriously awesome.

Thank you so much to my lovely friend Nel for this award- and if you haven’t checked her out then I don’t know what you’re still doing here, because she’s absolutely fantastic and her blog is one of my favourite’s- so go-go-go!!

Briefly explain your blogging style (where your favorite blogging spot/tools – as in, on the couch using your smartphone or something).

I basically go wherever my computer is and then I work from there- I’m afraid my blogging habits are not more exciting than that. I think one time I used my smartphone for uploading pictures… but that was only cos I couldn’t find the adaptor wire. I do schedule a lot of my posts these days- I usually know in advance if I’m going to be too busy to actually write something and try to do things in batches (aside from having a ton of unused drafts on my laptop- I’m super organised… not 😉 ) Also, another fun fact is my computer, the Mad Hatter, is very temperamental, so here’s a very realistic representation of my blogging habits…

How do you manage your blogging time including blog reading time?

Oh gosh- BADLY. I’m going to try and not describe this in a way that sounds too chaotic… but yeah, it’s totally chaotic. I’ve already said a bit about how I actually write the posts, so I’ll move straight onto bloghopping. I usually have a ton of blogs open in tabs that I’ve been meaning to catch up on, a ton stored in my head, and a number of comments to reply to. I try and do a little every day- buuut I think a lot of you will know that doesn’t always happen. So, again, I do a lot in batches. I know- my genius is undeniable- it’s like I’m practically producing Shakespeare…monkey typewriter

Who is your most read author?

Ah well, fun question, cos I like to check how my most read authors are competing against each other from time to time (a bit like Hunger Games meets Game of Thrones, but with less death) My most read author- by quite a bit I must say- is Pratchett with 27 books. Maybe I’ll do a post about this at some point- there’s plenty of embarrassing names on that list, I can tell you 😉


How did you come up with your blog name?

Hehe I think it’s self-explanatory if you read my last answer- but for the uninitiated: I like Pratchett, The Librarian is one of my favourite of his Discworld characters, so there you go (now I think about it, it would’ve been funnier if I’d gone with my other favourite character: Death – missed opportunity… *sigh*)

What keeps you blogging?

Ooh great question! I’d have to say *all of you*. I started out just sort of talking to myself in a vacuum and while that was fun, I have to say the moment I fell in love with it was when that vacuum started talking back… Okay, WOW that was weird- what I mean to say (and yes I’m keeping that awful opening) is that it’s the blogging friends I’ve made, reading all the awesome bookish thoughts and getting to hear what y’all think in the comments section that keep me coming back! (that and the bananas I dish out in the ratings… what? I am a monkey 😉 )
