How to Get the Originality Fairy to Bless Your Posts | Book Blogging 101

There are essentially 45,990,382,819 (more or less) bloggers out there. They’re all bursting with bookishness, what they’re not all bursting with is creativity and personality. Don’t be an average book blogger, friends. Be yourself. (Unless you’re Liam Neeson) Use your own unique ideas. (Unless they’re absolute rubbish) 

Essentially, chums, simply be me. 


It all begins with the title, bud. Allow me to demonstrate: 

Good heavens this is boring:

Throne of Glass Review

Or

May Book Haul

YASS I’d click that link:

Throne of Glass | HOW TO BE A SASSY ASSASSIN 101

Or

Demon Fae & Egotistical Gods {It’s a Book Haul, Baby!}

You could have the most tedious subject in the world, and yet get thousands to visit the post simply because of a groovy title. Deception is a sweet, sweet thing.


Take a look at the list below. Could you, perhaps, pinpoint what the all have in common?

  • WWW Wednesday #8229
  • Top Ten Tuesday Songs that Should be Books
  • Taylor Swift Book Tag

Well, here’s a hint: EVERYONE DOES THEM AND THEY HAVE NO ORIGINALITY.

Okay. Yes. Weekly memes and book tags are fine. Great even, they can be so fun! I myself do participate in  Top Ten Tuesday from time to time. But you really have to be careful with these posts—they’re the love triangles of book blogging…very overdone. If you’re going to do them, make them seem special, make readers irresistibly attracted to them. 

So…what can you post? 

Sit down. Grab a pen. Write a list of your hobbies/interests, those that are entirely un-bookish. See my list below:

  • Ballet
  • Broadway
  • Disney

You’ve got your list, now how do you use it? If you’re obsessed with Les Miserables, write the soundtrack as books. (Well…don’t. I already did it. I’m just examplifying.) Love making jewelry? Make a post about jewelry recommendations for your favorite book characters.

Don’t forget discussion posts. Discussions posts always inspire arguments intellectual thingys. Just remember: the more original, the better. Try to steer clear from overdone posts—such as insta-love, a discussion I have actually done because I’m pathetic HAHA. 


 You don’t have to write about just books. In fact, your blog will seem way more original if you add more flair! For example:

Your blog should reflect not only who you are, but the person you want to be. So just go for it, chums. Because there is creativity inside of you. I am sure of it. You just have to look. If that doesn’t work, then try listening. Or something. 

YOU ARE YOUR OWN FAIRY BOOKMOTHER!

Has the originality fairy helped you, friends? Are you inspired? Shall you take over the world? Do you have any advice to share?

Becca 1.0: Why have you been so inactive in the blogosphere as of late?

Becca 2.0: Not that I have to explain myself to you or anything, but I’ve been at ballet rehearsal every night and learning things every day. I also have an improv show coming up in a week SO.

Becca 2.0: It’s over.

Blogging Slumps | Book Blogging 101

*sighs*

Yes. I am currently emerged in that awful thing that all bloggers of all kinds experience.

A blogging slump.

Since school has begun, I have had a lot less time to blog. And even when I do, it’s: Meh. I don’t feel like it.

Not only that, I’m also in a reading slump.

IT’S AGONIZING.

Pretty much, I’m not in the mood for the book world at them moment. And guess what?

That’s okay!

Writers need a break from writing, readers need a break from reading, and bloggers need a break from blogging. It happens to all of us!

If you’re going through a blogging slump, I’m going to attempt to help you work through it.

1. Read and read and read and read

If you’re in a blogging slump and not in a reading slump, the best thing to do is read! Nothing inspires the  urge to blog again than finishing a fantastic book. 

2. Read other blogs

I find so many amazing blog posts in the blogosphere, and I have so much fun reading them! They really inspire me to blog again and I’m amazed by all their creativity! 

3. BOOKTUBE 

This is especially helpful if you’re in a reading slump. Booktube eases up on you with friendly, awesome videos all about books. They’re just as amazing and helpful as blogs and it’s very helpful if you’re trying to get out of a slump.

4. Yeah, okay. Netflix

You can’t be a perfect, reading/blogging fiend all the time. Relax! Sometimes you just need to let yourself spend a week of being lazy and binge watching, especially if the show happens to be The Blacklist 🙂

5. Just take a break

Nothing discourages like forcing yourself. Just let yourself take a break from all of it, forget about the book world for a bit and let yourself relax into whatever else you’re interested at the moment. Of course, it’s important not to let this get out of hand. Don’t give up! Unless, of course, your interests have just changed, which is also perfectly okay!

That being said, I will be continuing my hiatus a bit because I need a little break. Of course, I’ll be back!

In a blogging slump? Did this help? Let me know!

Mwah!
