Wendy Nelson

Q.1 Please introduce yourself - Where are you from? How long have you been blogging? What’s the name of your blog? What made you decide to start a book blog?
A. My name is Wendy, I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota. My blog name is Books Best BlogI just started blogging in August 2019, I think I started mainly so I would get approved for better ARC from publishers. 

Though I found that I really enjoyed it. I like finding or creating the perfect images and or gifs that show each story I review as I see it in my head. Whether it be what the main characters look like or the setting and atmosphere of a part of the story.

Q.2 What is your favorite genre and book?
A. Just about any kind of romance. Though lately, I’m getting to love Fantasy and Fairytales almost as much, especially since many contain a romance as well.

Q.3 What one piece of advice do you wish you’d had when you first started book blogging?
A. Thoroughly look at the site you want, features, and the look, so you pick the best service (Wordpress, Wix, Squarespace, Blogger, etc.)

Q.4 What piece of advice you would like to give to other bloggers?
A. Figure out how many pages you want, and if the template you choose supports the different types of pages you want. If you need help, make sure you know where to go (does the site have developers you can hire to help you or even to set up your site)

Q.5 How many books are actually on your bookshelf/shelves right now?
A. Read: 1190, Want To Read: 730, Want to Read Books I Own: 2507, Did not finish: 7, Currently Reading: 1.

Q.6 If you could be a character from a book for just one day who would you be and why?
A. Hard question, but probably Dre Clearwater because I love Samuel Clearwater (a.k.a. Preppy).

Q.7 Is blogging your profession or just a hobby? Does your family support you? What’s their take on this?
A. Hobby. My family doesn’t care at all. I asked them to follow my blog, and they didn’t.

Q.8 What do you think is the best strategy for getting more visitors to a blog?
A. Post often. I am not really certain since I don’t get as much as many people. But I am getting more all the time. I haven’t yet done any sort of Marketing, I do have a Google Ads credit, but haven’t yet used it. I still am trying to figure out how to get things working better on certain pages. The interface is user-friendly for some things and not for others.

Q.9 What are the top 3 characteristics you look for in a good book?
A. 1. Interesting storylines.
2. Well-developed and likable characters (or hateable if they are villains).
3. Great Romance.

Q.10 What are your favorite Instagram/Bookstagram/Booktuber accounts?
A. I don’t really follow those, but I follow other bloggers like Books and Coffee https://sylandbooks.wordpress.comReadingtonic, and Dave’s Musings on Relationships

A few words for our readers and Books Charming -
Thanks to Books Charming for including me. Your site is awesome and has so much! 
To the readers: enjoy everything you read. There are so many books out there now that it isn’t worth it to read something you are not enjoying. It is nice to read the reviews other people wrote to find books you are really interested in, but then when you are reading, it is ok to make up your own mind about whether you like what you are reading. Thanks to all the readers who have enjoyed my site and my reviews,
