What Are My Favorite Posts to Write?

I enjoy writing several kinds of posts and none is the standalone favorite.  

  • Reviews:  other than those meh books that I have little to say about them
  • Interviews: when I can freestyle the whole interview and the author plays along
  • Discussions: I’m terrible about coming up with discussion points on a regular basis, but give me a question (ahem TMST) and I have a blast
  • Book Tags:  The themed ones are great fun
  • Blog Event Posts:  Great Pick Up Line, I Dare You, Holiday Extras
  • The Monthly Reports: Sharing a little slice of life and bookish stuff

If you haven’t caught on yet, I pretty much like writing posts.  But, here’s the thing, I don’t have the unheralded tedious work of formatting and I have to thank Shari and other blog hostesses for always doing that.  There in is the reason why I like them all.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

I like discussion posts but I never can think of something to post.

Yeah, I do all right if someone else provides the prompts, but I can’t usually think of them on my own. 🙂

I can’t even remember the last time I did an interview. They are fun!

It has been a while for me, too. I don’t think I did any in 2020. 🙁

LOL! Love this-how you enjoy writing posts. I love formatting – is that weird? I love making posts look just right. *sigh*

I bow down to you. I struggle with reviews (crazy, right?) I wish I liked it more. My favorite posts are lists. I love making lists.

Lists! I could have added those to the answer, too. Yes, those are fun times, Sam.

“Discussions: I’m terrible about coming up with discussion points on a regular basis, but give me a question (ahem TMST) and I have a blast”
Haha, same! I did contribute a few of the new TMST questions, but I wouldn’t be able to come up with, say, one per week.

“If you haven’t caught on yet, I pretty much like writing posts.”
We have . It’s great that no part of blogging feels like a chore to you (except formatting, that is!).

Oops, it looks like your commenting system doesn’t support emojis. I used a laughing one and a winking one after “We have”.

I think if you do the keyboard style like the colon and parentheses type of ones then it will do it. 🙂

Haha, yes, I am rather spoiled since I do not do the formatting, but can do various post types. I just can’t seem to come up with a discussion topic that hasn’t already been rehashed to death already. Thank you for your contribution of some of the TMST posts. I love responding to the prompts.

Reviews are one of my favorite posts to write, I know they don’t always get the best interaction, but I love writing them. I also like writing discussion posts and interviews, but I rarely make the time for those anymore nowadays as they take quite some time to write. And I like my Sunday Posts as well, it’s nice to have a post where I can talk about what’s going on in my life. Just like you I would say I just enjoy writing posts in general. I don’t mind the formatting too much, it mostly takes time, but I… Read more »

I enjoy reviews, too. They help me gather my thoughts on what I just read and they help me focus on different aspects of the book than I do when not reading for a review. Yeah, you’ve been wonderfully busy with work this past year so it’s tough to fit in extras. I love reading what you share in your Sunday Posts. Being able to create your own format is definitely a plus to putting posts together. I always think Shari is so intuitive because she makes all our posts look so much better than I could imagine from the… Read more »

I could never think of much to post. Occasionally I’ll think that someone should post about a certain thing but never suggest it. Maybe I should.

I enjoy discussion posts and used to do them all the time. Now, TMST is about it because I need a prompt mos the time. I like tags too, those are fun!

It’s hard to come up with discussion ideas. I haven’t done a tag in a long time. I should do one soon.
