As part of the Australian YA Bloggers & Readers Secret Santa Blog Hop, we want to know whether you’ve been a good or naughty blogger this year.
This blog hop is for the participants of the Aussie YA Bloggers Secret Santa list to help you find out more about your fellow santas and santees and hopefully find out who your santa is!
Questions: Have you been a good or naughty blogger this year?
1. How are you going with your Goodreads challenge?
I’m on track. I’m only on track because I lowered the number of books for my goal. But I lowered the number of books because I had to take some time off earlier in the year to get married, and I didn’t have time to read for about a month. (I know, most brides get to read A LOT when they take time off to get married. Alas, I was not one of them.)
2. How many times did you post per week on average? Do you think you’ll post more/less in the future?
On average I posted 5 times a week. I normally do 5 as a minimum and sometimes I do 7 (I took 2 hiatuses this year so the average is lower). I try not to double-post but sometimes I have to. I don’t really think anything will change in the future, but if it does, I hope to post less frequently. Quality over quantity.
3. What is your Netgalley ratio?
My Netgalley ratio is 100%.
4. Have you been commenting on other blogs?
No. Sorry. I’m more of a lurker. I have this inherent belief that no one cares what I have to say. Also, I always feel pretty isolated, so I think that no one gives a crap about me anyway. I don’t really feel part of the book blogging community because I don’t spend time on Twitter, which is where most people develop their relationships. This is why I joined the Australian YA Bloggers and Readers group, hoping to find some solidarity, especially among other Aussies. It can feel pretty lonely when you’re one of only a few Aussie bloggers amongst all your online reviewing friends.
5. Did you read mostly review books or non-review books this year?
I mostly read review books.
6. What are your blogging goals for 2015?
Get to the bottom of the review pile so I can start picking books off my shelves to read.
7. What is your favourite blogging moment/achievement of 2014?
I had a pretty cool moment where Sara Raasch, author of Snow Like Ashes, tweeted me when she saw my pre-review for Book #2 on Goodreads:
I also had an epic moment of awesome when debut author Mary Weber contacted me to ask if I would like a review copy of her YA high fantasy Storm Siren as thanks for all my early promotional work. I WAS SO EXCITED.
And then she said she’d run out of ARCs but SHE WOULD SEND ME A FINISHED COPY.
ALL THE WAY TO AUSTRALIA.
AND THEN IT ARRIVED JUST BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY.
AND IT WAS SIGNED.
I still haven’t read the book, but only because I want to love it SO BADLY I am putting it off.
Apart from a few slip-ups, I’ve been a perfect angel 🙂
Leave 3 clues to help your santee guess who you are!
1. Like me, my santee’s absolutely favourite genre in the entire world is YA high fantasy.
2. My santee’s blog title was inspired by their favourite song by their favourite band*.
3. My santee’s blog theme has a lot of blue in it.
*Incidentally, my screen name Nemo Evermore was inspired by my favourite band’s most famous song Nemo: “Nemo my name for evermore“. When I was choosing my blog name, I almost called it ‘Read You Real’ after lyrics in Nightwish’s song Storytime: “I am the story that will read you real.” But then I thought no one would understand what it meant, so I went with the Moonlight Library.
