anyways we are back with fellow bloggers and this week its Linda Ulleseit from her self name blog Ulleseit on Wordpress and she is from San Jose in California
1. When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging in January of 2010 because I had just finished my first novel and was starting to show it to publishers. Having a blog is a good way to build a potential audience, and I love to read, so a book review blog was a natural.
ME: i believe thats one way of showing off to the public for authors like you. you probably want to join goodreads and shelfari where people can tell you how good your book is and if you become friends with some huge author it can potentially draw attention to your books.
2.What is your favourite thing about book blogging?
I get to read a lot of books and share them with my students.
Me: wow teacher and writer and blogger wow! amazing! i've never actually had a teacher that is interested in books but other teachers have asked for recommendations
3.What is your favourite book?
Oh, that's hard. My most recent favorite is Cinder by Marissa Meyer.
ME: Yes!!!! another Cinder fan!!!! *Does Happy Dance*
4.what has been the best experience because of book blogging?
When you blog, it's like you're throwing your words out into cyberspace. The first time someone who was not in my class submitted a piece to be posted, I was excited! Having a successful blog helped a publisher decide to accept my book, On a Wing and a Dare, because they knew I could help market it.
ME: Cool and i know the feeling the second i saw that there was someone over seas veiwing my blog i couldn't believe it and the minute someone posted on my blog and said they liked i screamed up in down with joy
5.what makes your blog special?
I am a sixth grade teacher, so I try to include work by my students, both book reviews and other writing.
ME: that sounds like the best bit about it that your a teacher. you obviously creating some fans and you are creating book lovers in the one shot. thats just amazing
6. What is the main idea/ concept of your blog?
I want to share my passion for reading and writing with my students and their families. If someone else happens along, they are welcome!
Me: i understand your teacher view completely and it nice to think that you want people to be invovled in this world
