Getting to Know You Better Tag


I was tagged by the wonderful Nicki@SecretLibrary to participate in the Getting to Know You Better Tag (it’s actually Getting to Know ME Better here ;-)). Nicki is one of my favorite fellow bloggers so be sure to stop by her blog for more fun tags, reviews, and her awesome six degrees feature (the idea is to start with one book and then create a chain of six books, each suggested by the one before)!

So let’s begin:

How long have you been blogging?

I started on 28 February 2016 which means it’s been a year and a half already!

Do you enjoy doing tags?

Noooo! Well unless they are really easy, like this one :-). I do appreciate being tagged but they just take so much time and it’s so difficult for someone like me who can never choose (yep I’ve done it again, bought two pairs of same-ish shoes last week because I couldn’t choose) so I honestly never know which books to choose for tags and and I don’t know to answer some of these questions.. what’s your favorite book (as if there’s one) and what’s your favorite fandom (say what? aren’t these tags only for fantasy readers?), and don’t get me even started on the whole book boyfriend dilemma :-).

Do you follow the blogs that follow you?

No.. in the beginning I followed everyone back but I stopped doing that because the number of followers was increasing so much I didn’t have time to give everyone my attention. Now I’ll follow when people actually comment or give my blog more than one like so I know they’re worth my time too.

Describe your blog in 5 words?

To the point and completely who I am (not exactly five but who’s counting).

How many posts have you made on your blog? (Not counting this tag)

276! I’m surprising myself here 🙂

On a scale of 1-10 how much do you enjoy blogging?

Euhm.. 8? I really like doing it but I hate that I don’t have more time and that I run into my limits from time to time. I wish I was just better at some things but what’d ya gonna do? It’s in my nature never to be satisfied. I know, you don’t want to be the guy that’s with me ;-).

Writing or reading blog posts?

Both, I like sharing what I think about a novel I read, especially if it’s an amazing read but I also want to hear about new books my blog friends read, or one’s that I read and see what they make of it.

  1. If it makes you feel any better, I bought the same two handbags on holiday, albeit in different colours, because I couldn’t choose.

    I hear you on the tags. It’s nice to be tagged and then I read the questions and almost have a panic attack 😂

  2. I like these questions more than some tags I’ve seen. I don’t do tags because it is just too time consuming although it is special to be tagged! Enjoyed all your answers!

    • Same here.. tags take so much time of scrolling through my book list trying to find the right book.. I rather do straightforward questions :-). It’s still silly that tags get way more attention and likes and comments than reviews though.. it’s why I still try from time to time to do one :-). Thank you Holly!

  3. Good to see her rationale for deciding who to follow – I used to follow everyone who followed me too but then found they were not reading what I was interested in or never commented on anything I posted. Now I’m more choosy

    • Same here.. I was wary of people who only read fantasy who followed me.. I thought it wouldn’t be interesting to follow them back as I never read the same books but that’s where I was wrong… I might not read the books and can’t really comment a lot but I’ve learned a lot about fantasy through their posts and I can name a few titles myself now. I did make some great friends who read other genres, so sometimes it’s not a bad idea to expand interests :-). Thank you!


  4. Oh my gosh, I actually remember that last time you had the shoe dilemma and you’ve gone and done it again. 🙂 On the upside, you now have more shoes! 😀 Fabulous!
    Really enjoyed your answers.. I think my view of you is slowly formalizing into something more concrete although I can’t claim to actually truly know you… it’s still fun to find out more 🙂
    Thank you for the lovely shoutout and your continued support for my blog, as well 🙂 ❤

    • Yep I’ve done it again.. and I don’t do it with shoes alone either, clothes, books.. I’m terrible :-). Haha lots of people actually have a wrong image of me, you already have the advantage that you don’t see me. I really like it too the longer we blog the better we all get to know each other. It’s weird but in real life I’m often friends with girls (ok women but they are still girls in my mind because I like to think I’m still a girl too) who are the opposite of me, strong characters, outgoing.. who can pull me along and all and it seems I’m drawn to blog friends in the same way 🙂

  5. Thanks for the mention Inge and fab post. Interestingly, I used to follow back everyone at first too. It became crazy, I was following way too many people who I never used to interact with anyway. Someone would follow and never say a word so now like you, I follow blogs after interactions. It makes life easier:-) Blogging life that is.

    ps: I really enjoy your posts ❤


  6. I’m around an eight with the blogging, too, but sometimes it feels like a two. Ha ha! I also love Liz’s blog I will have to check out the others. One and a half years is great because the first year seems to be the most difficult for most bloggers. 🙂

  7. Oh god, Inge. Thank you so much for mentioning Bookidote!! I’d have mentioned you as well! I always love hearing your thoughts on the books I read and I also love checking out your own thoughts on all those awesome thrillers you spend your time with. ❤
