Tracy from Tracy's Treasure of Books blog

Tracy from Tracy's Treasure of Books does a post each week about a fellow blogger. Just as I love learning about the people behind the author, I also love visiting and reading about fellow bloggers. It is a great way to make new friends and find great book blogs. 

Since Tracy is busy interviewing everyone else, I thought I would feature her on my blog. I  hope you enjoy the interview and hop over for a visit to her blog. Just tell her "Hi1" from Donna at My Life. 

Favorite genre of books?

I am a romantic at heart, so anything that has a touch of romance to it, is really good for me. It can be in any setting, but you want something to make your heart pound just a little harder, or just make you sigh and go "awwww."

What made you want to blog?

Actually, I'm not sure. I had been reading book blogs for awhile and just decided one evening, why not give it a shot. I love to read, and I was pretty good in school (way back in the day), so why not put it together and share what I like.
Who is your favorite author? 

Do I have to pick just one??? I am reading so much more new authors than I ever have, so it is getting harder and harder to choose. Some of my favorites from before though, are Nora Roberts, Danielle Steel, Debbie Macomber, Linda Lael Miller, and Wanda Brustetter.
Did you always like to read, even as a child?

Yes, I loved to disappear in my room and just "hibernate" as my mom always said and read for hours.
If so, what did you enjoy then?

I grew up reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, and as many Nancy Drew mysteries that I could get my hands on.
Do you come from a family of readers? 

Not big readers, no. My mom and sisters read a lot of magazines but not a lot of books. I guess they prefer the quick reads.
What is your favorite book or series of books?

That is something that I really don't have. I just love to read!

What is your favorite part of blogging?

Reading and sharing with everybody, of course. But I also, am really loving meeting all the other book-lovers out there and all these wonderful writers!
Do you have any favorite tips on blogging or writing?

Just do what you enjoy and write about it. Just be you!
How do  you find the time to do it all, family, work, friends, blog???

I don't sleep much anymore, so I read and blog a lot when everyone else is either working or sleeping.
Best site for networking and promoting your blog? 

I spend a lot of time at goodreads and book blogs. I'm still new so I am still learning about different places.
Favorite pastime other than blogging? 

I love spending time with my family, crocheting, and spending a lot of time with my dogs.

Some of your favorite blogs that you follow?

Oh I follow a bunch, but here are a few:
Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf
Romance Book Junkies
The Barn Door Loft
Long And Short Reviews
My Life. One Story At a Time.
