Top Ten Favourite Top Ten Tuesday TopicsTo Date
That’s a tongue-twister of a title! This week’s prompt is a celebration of 5 whole years of Top Ten Tuesday. I’ve been blogging since March 2014, so the number of topics I’ve covered is much less than some! I don’t know how anyone who has been doing this for five years is going to cope.
1. My Bookish Bucket List (March 2014).
My first ever TTT post! It’s great looking back over the TTT’s I’ve done since I started blogging. It’s such a nostalgia kick! Out of curiosity, let’s see if I’ve managed to strike any of these off my list… New bookshelves are still a work in progress (it’s getting ridiculous now, Dad!), though my collection is coming on nicely. I haven’t managed to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour, but I have kept Confessions of a Book Geek active. Officially, I’ve scored 2 out of 10. Work in progress?
2. Books To Read If You Like… (April 2014)
I really enjoyed doing this topic, and putting the imagery together for the post. I want to put a little bit more effort into my TTT posts. I used to view them as an opportunity for discussion, as opposed to “just another meme”, but I’ve been slacking lately.
3. Remembering Alfie – Books Featuring Animal Best Friends (May 2014)
This was probably the first time I ever got in any way “personal” on my blog, and it was also the first time I felt the true support of this community, that I’d heard so much about (thank you all for being fabulous).
In a way, the post was very therapeutic (I basically bawled my lamps out while writing the entire thing!). It’s a sad post, but a fitting tribute to an animal I still think about all the time.
He made a lasting impact.
4. Cover Trends I Love and Loathe (June 2014)
I liked this topic, because it wasn’t something I’d ever tried to put into words before. I just knew when I liked a cover, and I knew when I didn’t, but I didn’t spot any patterns in my preferences. This post showed me that there is actually a theme in the covers I’m drawn to. Kind of.
5. My Bookish Blogging Confessions (August 2014)
I LOVED writing this post, and I LOVED reading everyone else’s posts that week too. Sometimes TTT allows for much more diversity and discussion, and sometimes it can be a little more generic. This week really let everyone let loose, and it was a lot of fun to put together and chat about. I think it might be one of my favourite posts ever.
6. Favourite Movies and TV Shows (July 2014)
Aside from books, movies and TV Shows are a massive part of my life. I half-cheated that week and made a list of ten for each, which I could easily have continued into the 20’s, 30’s or 40’s… Netflix has ruined me.
7. Blogging and Bookish Resolutions (December 2014)
As we’re now at the mid-way point of 2015 (where did the time go?!), I was planning to do a full review of these soon, so I’ll just cover them briefly today… 3 out of 10 ain’t bad, right?
8. Book Bloggers I Give My Love To (January 2015)
This was a freebie week, and I think following some of the drama and whatnot of 2014, I had a burst of inspiration to share some love in this community! This post also inspired my Sharing the Bloggy Love feature (which I need to catchup on). But you know, it’s nice to be nice.
9. Book Geek Problems (February 2015)
I actually use #bookgeekproblems on Twitter for the frequent perils us Book Geeks must face, but for this TTT I fleshed them out a little more for your entertainment. Urgh, I really love topics like this. It’s the kind of thing I would do a discussion post on anyways, but I wait for a TTT to roll around so we can all chat about it.
10. Loves and Loathes in Romances (February 2015)
I can be the biggest romantic, and gobble contemporary romances right up, swoons and all. Or, I can be the biggest eye-rolling cynic and throw a contemporary romance at the wall. Talk about being a mood reader! I used this post to explore what makes me swoon, and what makes me sigh.
