Top Ten Tuesday (98)

Top Ten Things That Make Blogging Easier
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. My Library

Libraries are a godsend for every book lover. I mean, free books! Author events! Book clubs! 

2. Small Review's Blogging Tips

Especially when I was just starting out as a blogger, these tips were SO helpful. (It's how I learned the <a href=""></a> code!)

3. Paranjunkee's Book Blogging 101

If you don't already read these posts, you'll want to. Seriously, they're AMAZINGLY helpful.

4. Bloggy Friends

All of you who have answered my questions, done Blogger interviews, or told my the title of that book I heard of that one time. You're the best!!

5. My Laptop

It would be pretty hard to blog without a computer.

6. Tweetdeck

Sometimes, because of school/work/activities/etc., I'm not around to tweet, so thank goodness for this website.

7. Edelweiss

way to keep track of new books that are coming out!

8. Bloglovin'

Since the passing of Google Reader (hold on, give me a moment, I'm still not over it), Bloglovin' has become my go-to Reader. Lovin' it. (hehe)

9.Paint.net

Any graphics on here are usually made with this lovely, free Photoshop substitute.

10. My Blogging Schedule

My blogging schedule ensures that I post a minimum of 4 times a week (though I usually post 5 or more times). 

What makes your blogging life easier?

  2. I've only started using Edelweiss. The format freaked me out at first and how to go about requesting for ARCs and stuff but I think I'm getting a hang of it now, lol.

    Great list! :) My TTT

    1. Yeah, I've only tried requesting 1 ARC on Edelweiss so far, but it's good for keeping track of upcoming books. :)

  3. You know, a laptop/computer seems like such an obvious thing to put on a list like this... yet I didn't think of it. Indeed, it WOULD be rather hard to blog without one. Haha.

  4. I don't even think I'm utilizing Edelweiss properly. *shrug*

    But you were able to do ten! I saw the title for your post, and I couldn't even come up with three, even though a laptop's so obvious. Congratulations for reaching 10!

    1. It was actually REALLY challenging to reach ten (hence the laptop one I threw in lol).

  5. Great list! I didn't think of adding my laptop, but it does make blogging easier!

    1. It does- there are too many books to be able to buy them all!

  7. Great list! I've noticed the library showing up on lots of lists. My book blogging has definitely increased my library use! LOL
