This week I am proud to feature a talented blogger with a passion for books – yes we have Gee Liz taking the hot seat this week!
SO LIZ, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DRINK WHILE WE ARE CONDUCTING THIS INTERVIEW WITH YOU?
I live off the stuff. I can’t stand hot drinks, and I’ve not drank water in around 15 years.
COULD YOU TELL US YOUR BLOGGING NAME AND THE NAME OF YOUR SITE PLEASE.
My blogging name is GeeLizReads and that’s also the name of my site… this is the link.
WHEN DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I started blogging on the 12th February.
WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I started because I had always wanted to review books.
I already do this on Amazon and Goodreads but always wanted to have my own site too. I was going to do it around 6 years ago but somebody put me off by saying I wouldn’t be very good at it.
I am sorry someone said that to you Liz. But you are knocking it out of the ballpark with your book reviews, so I am glad you started your site.
WHICH IS THE MOST POPULAR POST ON YOUR SITE?
It’s difficult to say which is my most popular post on my site but I think it is On The Edge by Ilona Andrews – A book review.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT BLOGGING?
The best thing about blogging is reaching other people and having the same interests as people all over the world.
FOOD THAT MAKES YOU SMILE?
Chocolate! I am addicted to chocolate. I actually gave it up, along with everything sugary, in November and raised money for Alzheimers Society.
IF I WAS GOING TO SEND YOU FLOWERS AS A THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME INTERVIEW, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
If you sent me flowers then I would love Roses, either Red (but then people might get the wrong idea, ha!), Black, or Rainbow.
I am not going to worry about anyone getting the wrong idea – red roses for being a brilliant blogger is the least you deserve.
DO YOU HAVE A SONG? ONE THAT FITS YOU AS A PERSON OR YOUR LIFE?
I wouldn’t say I have a song that fits me as a person or fits my life but I do have a go to song when I need a lift – When You’re Looking Like That by Westlife (I’ll listen to it, scream along and jump around like crazy for the entire duration of the song). I know it’s really cheesy music but I love cheese and it just cheers me up instantly.
DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING IN LIFE?
I used to think I knew where I was going in life but life changes so quickly and is so unpredictable. I’m happy going through life with not so much knowing where I am going, but with the thought process of being able to cope with wherever my life does go.
WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU WANT YOUR BLOG TO TELL THE WORLD?
My blog is just book reviews, so I don’t think it really tells the world anything. I suppose it shows that I am excited about books and I like to share that with people, and it’s ok to be excited about things like books!
I think books are exciting Liz! I think it’s great that you read and review them and enthuse excitement into others.
I am so pleased to have been able to feature you as this week’s Wednesday Writer.
