So Jillian from Jillian’s Books had the AMAZING idea to spread the love among bloggers through this wonderful campaign. For the next four weeks there will be a post on Friday spreading the positivity on all the participating blogs. You can never have to much love and positivity going around the blogosphere, so of course I signed up! :)
Introduce yourself and your blog
As most of you know I’m Michelle! I’m a Hufflepuff (even if you’re new, I’m sure you guessed that haha), 18 years old and currently studying journalism. It’s my dream to one day become a bestselling author, but I also want to make a difference in the world.
The Writing Hufflepuff is mostly a book and writing blog and was founded on June 30th 2014! I also sometimes post about other things that interest me and personal things, but since reading and writing are such a big part of my life they pretty much dominate this blog!
Where do you blog from?
Amsterdam, The Netherlands! Yes, the city where everyone is constantly on drugs *sarcasm* or at least according to Fox News (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, click here. It’s hilarious).
But siriusly, Amsterdam does have its faults of course, it’s nowhere near perfect (no city is), but um. It’s nothing like what they’re saying in the video (until actual facts show up, but those aren’t from Fox, but from the guy who made the video and put it on Youtube I believe)
Who or what made you the reader you are today?
Honestly? I don’t know! I’ve been reading ever since I remember and before that I was read to.
Who or what made you decide to create a book blog?
I had never really read a book blog before I created my own (I had never found one somehow! Which is crazy since there are so many), which was on a whim. When I started my blog I didn’t even really know what I was going to blog about, but it became a book and writing blog pretty quickly!
What are your thoughts on the blogosphere today?
I love it! I’ve made so many friends and everyone I’ve met so far is so lovely and caring. I feel so lucky to have met you all (though of course I haven’t met everyone yet!)
5 random facts about you?
- I’m terrible at thinking up facts
- I’ve used above fact as a fact before and am ALWAYS tempted to use it again
- I’m really tired at the moment, though I don’t know why (I can hear my mom explaining it in my mind haha. To sum her explanation up in one word: school)
- I’m wearing a donkey onesie at the moment
- I’m thirsty (THAT IS A TERRIBLE FACT I’M SO SORRY BUT I WARNED YOU THAT I’M TERRIBLE AT THINKING UP FACTS DIDN’T I)
5 favourite books you’ve read and loved?
FIVE?! ONLY FIVE?!
No but seriously I don’t even have 5 favourite books read this year alone, how am I going to pick just five, out of all the books I’ve ever read?! Fine, I will try
- Harry Potter (bet no one saw that one coming *cough cough*
- Percy Jackson / Heroes of Olympus (THIS IS NOT CHEATING NOPE NOPE)
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower
- The Book Thief
- Made You Up
AND SO MANY MORE UGH I HATE THIS UNFAIR QUESTION. I HAD TO LEAVE SO MANY FAVOURITES OUT I’M SORRY THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS AND THE INFERNAL DEVICES AND THE LUNAR CHRONICLES AND FANGIRL AND *312432567 OTHER BOOKS* (okay that number is an exaggeration. Sadly I haven’t even read that many books *sobs*)
5 favourite book bloggers
Okay, I can’t list five favourite book bloggers, because I have so many more. I mean, this whole campaign is about spreading love and positivity, so I want all my favourite (book) bloggers to know they’re among my favourites! Though listing them scares me, because I’m afraid I’ll forget someone and that makes me feel awful.
