Let’s Talk Bookish | How Do You Create Bookish Content?

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, that is hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts.

Thanks so much Rukky for the topic!

I know that I have had a difficult time in the beginning of my blogging journey on this exact issue. “How can I make my blog be more than just book reviews?” I knew I needed to do more than that especially since I wouldn’t be writing a review every day. As much as I would love to, I don’t have that in me.

One of the main things that has helped me is by doing weekly memes like this one! Since I wanted to have the option to have something on every day of the week, I looked at other blogs to see what kind of weekly memes they did, and which days they are usually posted on. Some memes can be pretty similar in nature, but not everyone participates in every meme, so at least I was getting to see more blogs and new to me people.

While I haven’t had the opportunity to actually stick with my own regular feature, I have done some that helped me come up with bookish content and I enjoyed doing them! The ones that I’ve tried, and hopefully can get back into are:

None of these memes actually have to be done regularly, and there will be times where I add a new post if something comes to me while I’m reading. Honestly, that’s how a lot of these posts come to fruition and I dig it. So while these aren’t weekly or on a regular basis, I still like using these to create bookish content.

I’m always on the lookout for new memes to try, or thinking of ways I can add some original content to my blog, so maybe these won’t be the only ones that will be here in the future. Either way, this is pretty much how I create my bookish content on my blog, and so far I think it’s been going well.

What about you? Are you more of a seasoned blogger that knows exactly how to come up with content at any given time? Are you still new to blogging and trying to add more to your blog? No matter where you are in your blogging journey, any content that you can create will always be great!

  1. Hi – this is a great question. I’ve never tried the memes, but I do enjoy reading other bloggers’ posts about them. As for content, I used to only do book reviews, but I certainly can’t read enough books to make that happen enough. I usually only read about 4 books a month. I like to mix up my other posts but I don’t have a set schedule. I’m very much a pantser when it comes to my blog. When I have no ideas, I just wait for something to inspire me and that sometimes turns into multiple blog post ideas. Hope you’re having a happy blogging weekend!

  2. I started book blogging as a means to an end. To be eligible for many of the arc books I was interested in you needed to have a blog, so originally I posted book reviews along with other promotional material. During lockdown last year, and thoroughly bored with how my blog looked, I started looking at what others were doing and what things I found interesting on their blogs. This led me to memes, which I love taking part in, my favourites are the ones like this that ask a question, or pose a topic, to discuss.

  3. Great question! Honestly, the majority of my blog content comes from book reviews, but I’ve been wanting to branch out more for a while – the problem is coming up with fun, exciting and new post ideas 😅 – so I really like your idea about using weekly memes to help inspire content! It’s something I’ve been interested in doing, but hesitate to commit to for some reason – your post has really inspired me to try it out!

  4. I was really confused about memes when I started out, but now I really love them, both to read and write. I don’t always have the time and focus for a review, but memes are usually easy and good fun. And when blog hopping it’s a lot easier to see if a blogger might share some of my tastes by looking at a few of their list than reading long reviews. And memes about books I’m not than into are still more interesting than full reviews for them (which I tend to skip if they’re not my genre)
