You may not know, but Emily, previously at The Loony Teen Writer, is moving to Loony Literate! She's a lovely blogger and also a very generous one, because she's hosting a giveaway to celebrate her launch. I'm participating in her blog hop today:
1) What’s something a bit LOONY about you? Well, my blog is called Insanity Inc. And I enjoy torturing characters and killing bacteria.
2) Since I’m Australian – what’s your favourite book by an Australian author? Oops. I will concede I never much noticed which authors were Australians. I have discovered, however, that The Book Thief was written by an Australian!
3) What’s your favourite kind of post to write, and why? I love writing ALL MY POSTS. I am planning a few new series this year that I'm super excited about, so let's see if you agree ;)
4) Favourite genre of YA? Dystopian. I do quite like fantasy, though.
5) Biggest blogging goal? I'm torn between steadily getting >20 comments per post and switching to a new URL/host.
6) Name another blogger who has been an inspiration to you. Greatest inspiration is probably Christina @ fairy skeletons; she was the one who inspired me to blog in the first place!
7) Trivia -
a) a 2014 contemporary YA release where the main character is called Emily (and I loved it, by the way). This author also wrote a book about a road trip. Oh, dear. Only Station Eleven is coming to mind, because the author is called Emily.
b) Madam Rosmerta from Harry Potter makes lovely oak-matured what? mead?
8) If you haven’t done this already, look up your full name (or your pen name if you use one) on an anagram finder. What’s the best anagram of your name? Ahahaha, this was such a great one. My fav ones are Salary Lace Sir and Clearly Air Ass.
9) One thing you want to see more of in YA? Diversity in setting! I blogged all about this here.
10) And finally – are you excited about Loony Literate???? DEFINITELY! The new theme is so gorgeous and Emily is an amazing blogger, so I'm super thrilled to see what's coming!
This post also gave me lots of food for thought, because like I said in (5), I'm going to change the URL and possibly hosting of this blog sometime. Just depends, you know, when I finally muster the courage to do so. Does anyone out there have thoughts about that? Fav themes, web hosts, URL suggestions?
And if you joined the blog hop, do leave a link so I can check our your blog!
