A Third Liebster Award!

It’s my third Liebster Award nomination, and I am now wondering how long I will still be eligible for this. Alwaysopinionatedgirl, who nominated me, already has 35 followers! And she started her blog in June! Can anyone give me advice on how to publicize my blog? Thanks.

So, thank you, Alwaysopinionatedgirl, for this lovely award. [And, PS, I stole the beautiful Liebster Award button on the side of your blog. Thanks for that, too!]

The Rules

1. Link and thank the blogger who nominated you.

2. Answer the 11 questions your nominator gives you.

3. Tag 11 (or so) other bloggers who have 200 followers or less.

4. Ask the 11 bloggers 11 questions and let them know you nominated them!

The Questions

1. Which fictional character are you most like?

I actually have a post all about that here, put to put it short: Hermione Jean Granger. We’re like soul mates. [Besides Evi and me. Hi, Evi!]

2. Which fandoms are you in?

I’m a Ravenclaw, Erudite, Shadowhunter, daughter of Athena, and a fan of TFIOS, If I Stay, and am NOT a tribute. Cuz I really don’t like the Hunger Games.

3. What is your favourite book cover?

I really love the If I Stay cover, Pandemonium and Requiem, too.

4. Which 5 books would you take with you to a desert island?

TFIOS, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Alleigant, City of Heavenly Fire, and I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education and Was Shot By the Taliban.

5. What is your favourite children’s picture book?

Many Moons by James Thurber.

6. What do you like most and like least about book blogging?

I absolutely love sharing my thoughts and being myself. My blog is really the only place I am truly me.

The most horrid thing would be me not having tons of followers when I started my blog in February 2014!!!

7. When was the last time you cried reading a book?

During one TMI book, probably.

8. Which book are you most embarrassed to say you haven’t read?

Eleanor and Park, and Fangirl. But I really want to!!!

9. Why and when did you decide to start your blog?

My inspiration for starting this blog was from Sam/antha, who then had a blog called Young Writers Café. I had stumbled upon it and, in short, loved it. So I decided to make my own! I also really wanted to publicize my WIP novel, which I upload to it.

I remember just googling “make your own blog” and WordPress came up. It seemed pretty easy, so a few hours later, BAM!, blog. I emailed it to all my friends and told Sam about it. At dinner, when I told my parents, I was a little scared because I’m a minor and hadn’t checked with them first, but they were just like, “Oh, cool.” They hardly read it.

I started it on February 2, 2014, I believe.

10. What are three things about you that not many people know?

I can shake my eyeballs. Literally, shake them. Two, I have probably only finished about eight stories out of all the ones I started. And, three, I can hardly talk to any of my IRL friends about books.

11. What one book would you recommend I read?

Assuming you’ve read the classics: Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Divergent, and TFIOS, I’d say The Apothecary by Maile Meloy. It’s a really great book! And it has a sequel, The Apprentices.

Evi @ Where Books Never End

Isa @ Books and Stuff

Willa @ Geek Daily

Ana @ Butterflies of the Imagination

Audrey @ The Measure of a Book

Sorry, I know, only five, but I can only find them!

5. Why did you start your blog?

6. If you could meet only one author and get their autograph, etc, who would it be and why?

  1. I love how you referred to TFIOS, Divergent, Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus and Harry Potter as classics! I will have to check out The Apothecary. I think the best way to publicise your blog is to, follow and comment on other people’s blogs and make blogging friends. I loved reading all your answers. You have a great blog! X

  2. Gah, Thank you so much, I feel so honored! I can’t stop smiling.
    Haha, I haven’t read Eleanor and Park either, or Fangirl, so you’re not alone. I need to read those though!
    I’ve met people who shake their eyes, it can be… surprising? But it’s really cool too. I had a friend who thought that she was crossing her eyes, until someone told her she was just shaking them.
    Thank you, I’ll have to make time to answer these amazing questions!

  3. Congrats on your THIRD nomination, girl. :) As for publicizing your blog… reach out to other bloggers and readers through Goodreads. I started out keeping to myself, so it wasn’t until much later when I started to gain bookish friends!

    Daughter of Athena, woohoo! Well, I actually think I’d probably be a daughter of Hermes. xD You don’t like THG?! :O I’m not a fan of Divergent, and would probably end up factionless if ever. xD

    Don’t worry about not having a lot of followers. Blogging isn’t about stats–it’s more of having an outlet to share your thoughts with fellow readers, regardless of how many they are. :)

    So cool that your parents are fine with you blogging! I’m 15, and my parents are a-okay with it, but I have a few friends who took some time before their parents approved of them blogging.

    Shake your eyeballs!? HOW!? :O xD

    Awesome post, Chloe, and thanks for sharing! So sorry for this long comment. xD Followed you, by the way!

    Aimee @ Deadly Darlings

    • Thank you! I love doing them.
      I looove Athena. Haha, Hermes. :P Sorry! I thought it was really boring. :( Although I adore Divergent!!!
      I don’t know how I shake ’em. I just do. It’s magic! I know two other people who can.
      Thank you. I’ll have to check out your blog now!

  4. *waves shyly* Hello, I’m a Tolkeinite, Jedi, Ranger, Hornblower fan, sort-of Austeen, Narnian, Redwaller and Castaway, Hentyist, Guardian, dragon trainer, and Archivist of various worlds existing, sadly, only inside my head at the moment. I’m waiting for the moment when those worlds no longer only exist in my mind.
    http://erinkenobi2893.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/geek-cred.jpg However, I have totally no idea what most of those fandoms are… I’m no Hunger Games fan, or Twilight fan either. :-P
    Oh, and I started blogging ’cause one of my friends had a WordPress blog. :-P Also, I’ve received the Liebster no less than FIVE TIMES. :-P (My record is pretty hard to beat, believe me. :-P)
