Our Romancing the Blog event continues with a visit with Ali from Simply Ali!
Jen: How did you get into blogging?
Ali: It was by accident… as most things in my life, lol.
In July of 2006 (wow, time flies) I created a blogger account to comment on author blogs and one day I decided what the heck, why not just create my own blog. I didn’t really know what I was doing or what I was in for, lol. I have fun doing it, though, and still love sharing my love of romance books with other readers.
Jen: Do you have any news about your blog that you’d like to share with us?
Ali: July is a busy month at Simply Ali. We will be sharing many popular authors and their work with Simply Ali readers and giving away lots of goodies. We will be hosting the wonderfully talented Best Selling Author Laurie London for our four day Get Sweet event starting July 18th to celebrate the release of her next Sweetblood novel Seduced by Blood.
Stay tuned because at Simply Ali we strive to bring the reader more romance than they can handle.
Jen: Will you tell us a little more about the people behind the blog?
Ali: Right now, there’s me and my fantabulous assistant Miranda… seriously, she rocks! I’d be lost without her 🙂
Ali… I’ve been a romance reader for as long as I can remember. When you’re a child who’s reading a book, and all you wonder about is whether two characters will become a couple, you realize as you get older that the romance section is where you should be. Next to reading a good romance, I love sharing my love of romance novels. When I’m not reading, you’ll find me watching too much tv, goofing off with the Brat (my 10yo sis), or discussing either the Zombie Apocalypse or when computers rule the world with my friends, lol.
Miranda… Simply Ali’s Assistant is a sassy Tennessean with a fierce passion for books. She loves getting creative with the Simply Ali posts and getting to know the Simply Ali readers. Miranda spreads her passion for the written word around. You can also find her reviewing for Joyfully Reviewed and editing at Melange Books.
Jen: Is there anything you’d like to ask our readers?
Ali: What sort of content do you like to see on book blogs?
Ali has a special contest for our readers… and it’s international! Your basic entry is to answer her question via comments. And remember, that comment can also be used for our event long contest (the second rafflecopter form).
