    These are great ideas for when you want to post on your blog but you’re kind of stumped on what to write. I want to fill my blog with book reviews but I want it to be mixed in with other stuff too. There are some great prompts in this!

    Ohh Thank you these are all so fun and I got to admit I spend hours reading posts like these anyways. Why didn’t I know. lol. I dressed up as a fictional book character once and had a contest in my Facebook group (every writer/reader is invited). Someone dressed up as Pennywise the clown from IT. 🙂

    Thanks so much for these prompts! My blog (bernardsbookblog.wordpress.com) is primarily book reviews right now. I’ve been wanting to expand to more bookish topics, but I wasn’t sure where to start or what to talk about. This list will help so much!

    This is an AWESOME set of discussion questions. Thank you for sharing! I find that I have all sorts of ideas for discussion questions when it comes to specific books, but not when it comes to blogging. This is a great place to start from.

    Do you find it’s easy to come up with discussion questions to explore?
