When I first started this blog, it was in 2007 or so and I wanted to keep posting only copy-editing-related content. In 2014, my friend suggested I start a book blog, and rather than start a new blog, I decided to post content on this blog itself. In 2017, I decided I wanted a separate space to talk about books, so I started one on Blogspot. Then I wanted a separate domain, so I started a Wix blog. However, I found WordPress was more user-friendly. So I decided to scrap my Wix blog and came back to this WordPress blog. Meanwhile, I had started a bookstagram called ashtalksbooks, so I changed my mymewse blog to ashtalksbooks.blogspot.in. I hadn’t posted for about two months on this blog coz I had called it ‘Aishwariya’s LittLog. So I felt it had to be a place for only literary content and not my own stories. Finally, I decided I will just do whatever I want and so here I am posting away. Phew! All this points to the need for a good content strategy. Also, it is okay to change your mind and do what you want. It’s your life and your blog (for whoever needed to hear this today).
So just a couple of days ago, I shared a Bookish Blog Tag that I saw posted by @booksare42 on Twitter. Today, she posted a great question for a book blogger hop that I’m answering.
If you are listening to an audiobook, do you follow along with the print version?
I haven’t had much success with audiobooks. My mind drifts when I listen to an audiobook. But your idea of following along with the print version is pretty good and maybe I should try it.
Drawing on my instructional design knowledge, I can give some gyan that we are all different types of learners. Some of us need to see words on a page, while others do better when they listen. ( auditory learners). I belong to the former category, but my eyes are being overstrained.
So maybe I will try it out a bit later:)
What about you, dear reader?
