Let’s Discuss; How I Create Bookish Content

Hey everyone! I hope you’re doing great. Today I’ll be talking about how I create bookish content. I’m actually participating in Dani @ Literary Lion and Rukky @ Eternity Books‘ monthly discussions! Feel free to check out their other discussions if you’re interested. Anyways, let’s get into it!

How I Come up With Post Ideas

Step 1: Go to sleep

Step 2: Contemplate life

Step 3: Jump out of bed to write down a post idea

Step 4: Realize your idea doesn’t make sense the next morning

How I Plan My Posts

I actually keep a schedule on google calendar, and sometimes on notion. I typically prioritize blog tours, and monthly wrap-ups. Next, I plan my reviews. Reviews are the easiest posts to make, but the hardest to write. Well, at least for me. πŸ˜† I aim to post one review a week. Third comes tags. These posts are quite time consuming, so I don’t write them all that often. Lastly, I plan other miscellaneous posts like this one.

What the Editing and Graphic Design Process Looks Like

I always look over my post. So if you find a typo after my vigorous re-editing of the same sentence, please forgive me. πŸ™ˆ

In terms of graphic design, I use picrew and canva. They’re easily accessible sites that are perfect for beginner bloggers like myself! However, I hope to upgrade my graphics within the next year. We’ll see though. πŸ™‚

My Posting Schedule

I try to post every Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday. However, I don’t have a specific posting schedule. For the most part, I post whenever I feel like it.

So, how do you create your bookish content? Let me know in the comments down below!

  1. I love how this has an air of cheekiness and ease to it, you make it sound so easy! It’s always best to not take blogging so rigorously and serious. Loved this post!

  2. Reviews are easiest to write for me. Specifically when I sit to write as soon as I finish the book. I keep longer time between finishing book and writing review, I would struggle more. As for the idea for discussion post, i don’t swell on it much. I just write it down as soon as I get idea and start thinking about the points. I wouldn’t give it second thought or I can never publish that post. great post!

    I love the way you have written this post!! My post ideas also spontaneously appear and I forget them within seconds if I don’t write them downπŸ˜… as for book reviews…that’s a mixed bag. I find it very easy to write books I had strong feelings for, whether I loved it or whether I hated it – but I find it a lot hard to write a review for a book that I liked but diet feel a lot about it…if I make sense. Great post ✨

    1. Thank you Jan!! Yes, I totally agree. Lol that’s why I always write them down hahaha. Oo that’s an interesting point. Yeah totally! A five star or 2 star read will most likely be easier to write a review for. Thank you for sharing Jan! ❀

  4. I definitely agree about reviews being the hardest to write! It doesn’t make sense though because I always write reviews, but they take SO LONG. Great post, Saniya!

  6. Reviews are the hardest for me because I feel like I’m not very good with words. Recommending books is much easier and fun imo. I also don’t have a fixed schedule yet; I post whenever I have the time and good internet connection. Great post btw!

  11. Reviews are the actually easiest for me to write just because I always have so many thoughts and I almost always take notes while reading. I’m terrible at catching typos though. My brain automatically corrects a wrong word when I’m reading it out loud πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
