I’m here with another Meet the Blogger! Today I will be doing a Q&A with Jenn, the owner of Bound to Writing. So here it is!
Tell us a bit about yourself?
J: My name is Jenn. I am 23 years-old and I’m engaged to a wonderful man that I’ve been dating for over 7 years. I have written five books. Three are published, book four, Not Like Everyone Else, is expected out sometime in May 2018. All published under Jennifer Leigh. I graduated college with my B.S. in Finance last year.
How did you get into book blogging?
J: I have loved reading and writing ever since I was in elementary school. One day I decided that I wanted to talk about reading and writing and that is why I started my blog. I started my blog Bound to Writing in July of 2017.
What is your favourite thing about your blog?
J: I have two! First, I love writing about my writing. It’s fun to talk about my writing journey and hear about other people’s writing journeys. Second, I love reviewing indie books. Being an indie author myself, I know the difficulties in getting your name out there, so I like to help out in any way that I can.
Have you been inspired to blog by another blogger and/or Youtuber?
J: To be honest, I didn’t really know this whole community existed before I started my blog. I’m glad I found out that this whole community is amazing though!
How do you decide what blog posts to do next?
J: I follow a schedule. Scheduling has made my life so much easier as I know the topic that I will be writing about on a particular day of the week.
Do you look at other blogs to get inspiration for the content of your blog?
J: I never go out purposefully looking for content on other blogs. I do sometimes take note of posts that I like, and I keep them on a piece of paper where I can pull them from if I were ever to need something to write about.
Where would you like to see your blog at the end of this year?
J: It’s still early in the year, where I’m not exactly sure where I want to see my blog. I would love to make more relationships with other bloggers and authors this year. It would be great if my blog had more interaction at the end of this year than it did at the beginning of the year.
If you could meet one author who would it be?
J: Ugh! This is so hard! I would have to say I would love to meet P.C. Cast. I have been reading her writing for so long and it would be amazing to meet her!
What are your 3 top genres to read?
J: YA Contemporary, YA Fantasy, and YA Historical Fiction
What book are you most excited about reading next?
J: My mom just bought a copy of The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo and I can’t wait to read it!
What is the most recent favourite book you’ve read?
J: My recent/newest all-time favorite book is Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda! I read it so I could go see the movie, and am so glad that I did! That book is easily my favorite book of all-time! I just love everything about it!
Do you have any hobbies outside of blogging/reading?
J: A lot. Although blogging and reading to take up a lot of my time, I am a writer. I mentioned above that I’ve published books, well I do take the time to write and edit these books. I also love crafts and DIY stuff. If I can make things I will try my hardest to do it. I learned to knit, so I could have a hat that I liked during the winter. I’ve also recently picked up gardening. I’m trying to grow cilantro!
That is the end of my Q&A with Jenn from Bound to Writing. Thank you to Jenn for participating in this Q&A. It was very fun to do. Also, check out her blog, it looks amazing.
