Love to Write
Memes are my favorite to write because they are the easiest, fastest, and simplest to post. I have a template so I just plug stuff in and I’m all set. It only takes like 5-10 minutes to write a meme and schedule. JK. I’m just kidding. Personally, I like writing my discussion posts the best, especially my Investigated ones. Thoughtful is fun to write too, but it more blogging related while Investigated is more book related. And as much as I love blogging, I love reading even more. I think discussion posts are the easier for me to write, which is also probably why they are my favorite to write. Coming up with an idea to discuss that isn’t overdone is the hard part, though I can usually come up with something… usually. I like writing discussion posts so much that I split mine up into two different features so I can have an excuse to post two a week. Yeah, that’s how much I love discussion. Plus I always feel like spending the time to write a discussion posts, especially my Investigated ones, pays off for me more than any other type of post. They usually get the most comments (memes don’t really count) and the most trackbacks (which means more people are sharing them). Thus they also get the most pageviews.
I hate writing…
I hate writing reviews. It’s just so hard for me for some reason. While I can crank out a decent discussion post like this on in maybe 15 minutes, 30 tops, reviews usually take me at least 45 minutes. At least. And the worst part is that I usually end up cutting a lot of what I write (which means I wasted time) because it ends up being wayyy too long and apparently everyone prefers shorter reviews (I do too, to be honest). And then there’s the fact that my rating system is a messed up (in comparison to Goodreads’ standard at least). Sigh. Reviews, why do you got to be so hard. That’s why so far, I’ve only posted one review this year.
Love to read
I love reading discussion posts. Lists are pretty fun too. Oh, and blogging tips, especially WordPress ones, are the best. They can be legit life savers.
I kind of go back and forth on this one. In short, I don’t really like to read unoriginal content. So blitzes are the absolute worse. Memes can be bad too, but they give me the chance to meet new bloggers and discover new blogs, so they get a pass…
