Tag Tuesday – Book Blog Newbie

Hello, wonderlandians. It’s Tuesday. Hope you guys are having a great day and that it is a super productive one. I feel like yesterday it was a great start to the week I was super productive at work I am getting back into the whole blogging everyday thing I’m so excited about that. This blog is one of the greatest joys I have in my life right now. I absolutely love the little community and family that we’ve created here. I am also starting to vlog again. Nothing has been uploaded to any of my YouTube pages. So here’s my question do you guys watch reading blogs and if you do I do have a reading Channel a bookkeeping Channel called Ashten Healy.I really just want to blog I think it is a really fun Pastime but my question is is it do you guys watch blogs and he saying that have to do with reading or writing? If you do please let me know because I want to start doing it but I don’t know if I should create another channel that has something to do with this blog. At the same time, my Twitter handle have to do with my YouTube channel. I don’t know about.

As you guys know I really like doing tags I think it is a great way to get to know the person behind the blog you guys know every Tuesday I dedicated to doing some kind of tags so you guys can get to know me better. So if you guys want to do this tag please let me know and then tag me in it so I can see what you guys have written. I want to get to know my fellow bloggers in this wonderful community that all of us are creating and let’s just Help each other out and we can all grow as a community. Let’s get out of this questions.

1. Why did you start this blog?

This is an awesome question I started blogging because I have a YouTube channel that I would do reviews on books I would you block calls and all this other stuff. But the filming and the editing just became too much for me and I really lost my love of it. I feel like when I’m blogging I have time to really collect my thoughts and it’s I’m not going to say it’s easier because I put so much time and energy into this blog.It’s just a different way that I can connect with people and I feel like I am connecting with people on a deeper level with book. I am part of some fantastic blogging groups I don’t know if there are any groups for people who are on YouTube who talks about books I haven’t done that much research into it. For right now I’m quite happy where I am with my blog and I’m so excited to just grow this blog and just continue the conversations I have about books with people.

My fiance’s mother loves to read and she had told me that she was so happy that I bought the love of reading to her again. She is a super busy woman who didn’t really have time to read and one of her favorite movies is Twilight she has seen those movies at least five or six times. But she told me she never read the book so for Christmas, I got her the very first book in Twilight and within 4 days she read the entire and Now I and her are constantly giving each other recommendations for books. It’s awesome his little sister also loves to read so she keeps the last her mom keeps the list that I keep a list of books all the stuff that we’ve had so far this year and it’s pretty and stay in to see between the three of us how much we have read this year so far.

2. What are some fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?

I feel like every person has a very unique an individual voice when it comes to blogging. I know what I first was starting Allah. I was kind of mimicking the voice of some of my favorite bloggers and finally I it was really comfortable and it just clicks and my blog is just an extension of how I talk in real life so I hope it comes across as goofy and as zany as I have in real life. I do talk about some pretty serious stuff on this blog when it comes to mental illness because I also have  Obsessive-compulsive disorder so I tried to talk about that aspect of my life and try to help other people just to let them know that they’re not alone. I am also currently in the middle of finishing my first novel at least the first draft at least and I talked about that on this blog as well. So I think just being me that’s completely unique and different to the blogging world.

3. What are you most excited for about this new blog?

Well, I have been blogging for about 4 months now and everything about this Blog has me super excited. The one thing I would really like to do more of is review books I feel that in the last month or so I really slacked on reading I just got out of a horrible reading slump and now I’ve got like five books on in the middle of that I just want to finish but I can’t so there’s that I’m just excited about everything and I really can’t wait to grow and expand I’ve grown so much it with blog in the last 4 months that it’s insane to me that anybody would want to read what I’m writing. So I think it’s my mind is blown every time I open up my blog.

4. Why do you love reading?

I love reading because it really came to me at a time where I needed an escape from reality and how I did that was through Reading. As I mentioned before I have OCD so for me living vicariously through someone else for a little while is a great break from my reality. So when I’m stressed or whatever I can jump into a first-person narration and I become that character.

5. What book or series got you into reading?

Okay, the book series that got me hardcore into reading was called the what if series I have talked about it many times on this blog before. It is a choose your own destiny book series where you got one chapter that sets up the rest of the book and then when she gets the end of that chapter it summarizes what happened and then you get to pick what page you get to go to next. For me it turned reading into a game and then from there we got me super into I would start reading Twilight and then that just band my love vampire novels. then I found the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead and I haven’t looked back.

6. What questions would you ask your favorite authors?

If I could ask my favorite author one thing is will you please please please please write a frostbites 10th-anniversary edition. I need the entire Vampire Academy series with Anniversary Edition. Also, will you be my best friend? What other projects do you have coming up?

7 What challenges do you think starting a blog will be the hardest to overcome?

I really think the hardest part about starting a blog is just starting. Don’t question anything just do it I know that is like the simplest advice somebody can give you when I started my YouTube channel I had a lot of reasons not to start it and I don’t regret starting my channel I’ve had my channel for about 6 years and while I have a 103 subscribers those people tuned in and watch what I do. I knew I needed to take a break from the YouTube the scene because my channel wasn’t moving forward and I felt very discouraged so I thought I would try my hand at blogging and what do you know I found something I love a little bit better than YouTube. The one thing I do like about YouTube has I missed vlogging. Vlogging that I could just turn the camera on and I didn’t need to be made up I didn’t need fancy lights I can do it right from my phone and while I do have some really nice cameras due to I went to school for photography. It can be a lot it to set those cameras up.

8. When did you start reading?


I started reading at about 15 for fun.


9. Where do you read?

I don’t have a specific place that I read I typically tend to read wherever I am. But if I had to choose my favorite place in the world it would be my bed. When I get a bigger house I do plan on having a library in that house with a comfortable chair and lots of comfortable pillows so hopefully that will be like my favorite place.

10. What kind of books do you like to read?

Anything that has to do with the supernatural or the Paranormal genre. I have gotten into erotica within the last couple of years so I always put a disclaimer if you guys are not over the age of 17 I really don’t recommend any of that kind of books. I’m iffy with the age of 16 I mean if your parents are okay with you more specifically I’d like to talk to your mom. I know if I were 16 and I wanted to read these kinds of books I don’t know I’d talk to like my mom or something actually I would have talked my Mom at Sixteen if I wanted to read the books because she would have been the one paying for them. Unless got free books off Amazon which is what I do a lot or the books are like $0.99.

Thank you guys so much for joining me here in out part of Wonderland. Please do not forget to feed do unicorns on your way out as they love your company and they love their treats.

Until next time

Much love

Ashten

  1. Great questions and answers. I’ve kind of lost the spark for my blog at the moment. I’ve taken on too many blog tours, so getting behind with the books that were already on my TBR list. Great to hear that you are loving your blog though. I’ve never tried to make a YouTube video – I don’t like being in front of the camera.

    1. I am right there with you. I have taken on way to many blog tours and I think this month alone I have like 4 I am doing. It is becoming overwhelming. I am not really reading the books I want to. I have like two others book to read. Thankfully there is not a set date for when the review needs to be up.

  2. I always love getting to know other bloggers. I used to enjoy YouTube until they changed their terms and deleted a bunch of accounts in 2015. It was a very sad day for me

  3. I really enjoyed this posted. Just a couple things. I don’t watch vlogs of any sort. If it is over 2 minutes long, I don’t have the attention span to sit still. My mom would not have let me read erotica at 16 either!
