Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Blogging Confessions


Top Ten Tuesday is from The Broke and The Bookish!

I don’t think I’ve been blogging long enough to have ten blogging confessions, but I’ll do my best! I’m going to add in some bookish confessions as well!

1. I have told very few about this venture. I can’t be bothered dealing with people asking why I would do such a thing and I think I’m still plagued by a fear that people will think I’m dull if they realise I’m such a bookworm. Then again, if people know me at all, they know exactly how bookish I am!

2. I have no idea what I’m doing. I can’t even work out how to use WordPress half the time!

3. I find myself getting stressed about finishing books quickly so I can review them! I’m trying not to let myself fall into that habit though!!

4. I get really frustrated when people interrupt my reading time, especially when it’s for petty things. It depends on how engrossed I am. I then turn apoplectic if I’m interrupted and then someone moves my book and loses my place!!! Especially if it’s deliberate…

5. I buy way more books than I am capable of reading. I have books on my shelf that have been there for years and years. I fully intend on reading them but just haven’t got around it it yet!

6. I hardly ever read hardbacks. They are expensive here and I find them way too bulky, but I am on a mission to own a beautiful hardback edition of all my favourite books!

7. I go through phases where I’ll read five books a week and then stop reading for a while. I think I burn myself out a bit and need time to recuperate.

8. I really like trashy romances, particularly if they involve supernatural creatures. It’s a problem. 

9. I get really nervous about posting comments on other people’s blogs. I’m shy around new people and always worry that what I say is stupid, so I tend to say nothing at all. If I do comment, I’ve agonised over every word until I’ve re-written it five times!

10. I have a terrible fear of reading other people’s favourite books and hating them. I’ve done it before and it’s so hard! I know how I feel when other people dislike a book I loved, it’s like having someone say you are also terrible. We find so much of ourselves in our favourite books and to criticise them is to criticise a part of yourself.

  1. I’m like you; I haven’t told many people about this blog.I know they will judge me,especially because I don’t say much in real life.
    And yep,I hate it when people disturb for petty matters.That’s why I prefer reading at night or when nobody’s at home.
    I never feel shy to comment on people’s posts.I think it’s a great to socialize.Comments are always welcome on my blog and I – maybe wrongly – assume that the feeling is requited by everyone else.

    As for 8,no comment! 😀

  2. I always feel stupid commenting on others blogs as well. I feel like when they read my comment and judging me or rolling their eyes. Luckily I’ve seen the people in the book community are really nice and always open for a good book discussion!

  3. I completely get what you are saying here! I haven’t told many folks about my blog either… And honestly, I never much know what to write about. It’s like I have all these thoughts of things to write about but never do because I think well nobody would read that. It’s our crux. I love your blog, keep it up! Look forward to reading you.

    • I wish I could get a brain tap of all the things I want to say but can’t get into words, it would save so much time 😉 people will read though, and getting them out there is the first step! Thank you! That means so much to me!

Tell me what you think!
