#MeetTheBlogger: Erica Robyn Reads

Hi, everyone! Something new for Deanna Reads Books, is a feature I have been wanting to do for awhile. 

I am a big supporter of other bloggers, and for the positivity in the book blogging community so I decided to start a feature to showcase other bloggers. This is a completely new feature on the blog, so if you are still interested in being featured you can fill out the google form here. I'm not sure yet if this is going to be a monthly or bi-monthly yet...but we shall see!

This month, I have Erica from Erica Robyn Reads!

Blog name: 

What made you want to start a blog?

I've always been interested in creating things. Reviewing books on Goodreads just wasn't cutting it for me, nor was posting on Books Amino. I had experience blogging for work, which I enjoyed, so I considered starting a book blog. Within a few days, I launched my blog!

What do you like the most about blogging?

I love engaging with other readers! It's so much fun discussing a books with fellow readers! I also love having people comment to say that they are going to go pick up a book after reading my review. That's such an amazing feeling!

What struggles or pet peeves do you have about blogging?

My main struggle is simply finding the time. I don't blog hop nearly as much as I wish I could.

Favorite Genres

Horror, Thriller, Suspense, Mystery, Graphic Novels

Favorite Authors

Michael Crichton, Joe Hill, Tony Moyle, T.L. Branson, Tess Gerritsen, Stephen King, Josh Malerman, LM Schukraft, Riley Sager

What's the most important thing you have learned since you started blogging?

That I do NOT have to post daily. That was what I was absolutely killing myself to do when I first started out, and I was burning out pretty quickly because I was forcing myself to create content just to stay on schedule. Now I just post when I happen to have something ready. Some months are more productive than others, but my goals is to simply keep this fun! Once I start stressing, I force myself to take a step back.

How long have you been blogging?

A little over two years now.

Where else can we find you talking about books? (twitter handle, instagram, goodreads, etc)
