Top 10 Things That Make Your Life As A Reader/Book Blogger Easier:
Goodreads – I don’t know how I did anything before Goodreads. I don’t think I could go back to not using it. It helps so much with keeping track of what I’ve read, what I want to read, recording how I feel about books, networking… everything.
Public Library – This one is pretty much given. I use the library so much. It’s crazy to think it exists, but I’m not going to question it. I’m just supremely grateful.
Wunderlist – My Wunderlist is kind of a mess right now, but it’s something I use every single day. If I have an idea for the blog I drop it in there. I keep a list of reviews I have to write and a list of the books/etc I have checked out from the library. I love it.
Twitter – Twitter makes it so easy to talk to people and post things. I can’t even elaborate. I think you know, anyway.
WordPress – Hi, welcome to my blog! I use WordPress. WordPress is SUPER functional and just awesome. I’ve used other blog platforms, but WordPress is the winner for me. I don’t think I could go back to any of the others.
RSS Feeds – If RSS feeds didn’t exist I think I would probably hardly ever read other people’s blogs. It’s too difficult to keep up with which blogs have what address and what the last post I read was. Have a read this one before? RSS feeds and readers are a godsend.
Scheduling Posts – I’m not even going to elaborate on how easy this function makes my life.
Pen and Paper – This one is probably weird to a lot of people, but going back to the ever faithful pen and paper helps get my juices flowing when I’m writing a post. And when electronics aren’t available guess what I’m grabbing for. You got it!
EDIT: So, going to other people’s TTT posts has made me realize how many wonderful things I’ve forgotten to put on my own list. Things like my Kindle, Post-Its, bookmarks, computers, online book holding at my library, et cetera. I can’t believe I forgot all of these things… but know they’re very important and I use them ALL. THE. TIME.
