Introducing Nishita from Nishita’s Rants and Raves!
I’m happy to have been given Nishita as my interview partner. I’ve asked her some questions about her blog and her reading. She asked me some in return– you can see my answers on her blog.
Here’s what she had to say:
My blog is primarily a book blog, but it’s not ‘only’ a book blog. I am too lazy to maintain multiple blogs, so I do post some amount of personal stuff. I also post about other things that excite my interest – travel, shopping, fun events, basically anything is grist for my blog.
My blog started out as a personal blog where I wanted to document my regular day to day life and events – a sort of online diary.Once I started, I realized that:1. I felt uncomfortable putting quite a bit of my thoughts and activities on paper. Nothing to do with the online privacy issue, it just felt like I was rambling and incoherent and sometimes my thoughts were best left as thoughts…I don’t know if that makes sense, but it was what I felt.2. Most of my blog posts started dealing with books, so my blog sort of just evolved in that direction. It was a very slow evolution though. I lead a full life juggling work + family + hobbies/personal life + blog, and a lot of times, my blog ends up as the last priority.
I love experimenting with my blog so that it reflects my personality. I play around with my blog appearance quite a lot, I also love the various online friends I’ve made through blogging. Very few of my real life friends are into books, so it is a lovely forum to discuss stuff I enjoy with other bibliophiles.
I think I loved ” The Story of Edgar Sawtelle” by David Wroblewski the best.
I am looking forward to Christopher Paolini’s next book “Inheritance”. I love Fantasy, and I am curious to see how this series is going to end. I am also looking forward to reading “Syren” and “Darke” by Angie Sage – the 5th and 6th books in the Septimus Heap series, which is my favorite (almost comes close to the Harry Potter series). Although the book has been out for some time now, I want to wait for some time and really savor them.
Thank you, Nishita! Everyone, be sure to check out Nishita’s Rants and Raves— I’ll certainly be returning.
