I’ve been noticing a trend over the year that I’ve been book blogging. I’ve always been more of a night person than a morning person. So it’s normal for me to stay up til midnight or so on nights I don’t have morning shift at work the next day. Sometimes when I’m off the next day, or I’m really into whatever I’m working on, time will fly by and suddenly I’ll realize it’s after 2am!
So a lot of my blog posts are written at night. (Ironically, this one is being written at 3:30pm but that’s not typical.)
I also tend to answer comments on my blog late at night, and unless I happen to be at home during the day when new posts go up on the blogs I follow, I’ll read and comment at night as well.
And what I’ve noticed is that 9 times out of 10, the blogs I follow all seem to leave comments on my blog, or respond to my comments on their blogs at night! Some of my bloggy friends that I e-mail often send me late-night e-mails as well. I am totally unsurprised to get e-mails after midnight from them.
I am also likely to suddenly remember something I wanted to babble to them about and send them e-mails between midnight and 1am. And I know when they’re staying up late too because not only did I sent the e-mail way late (or way early??) but they respond to said e-mails before I’ve gotten around to getting off the computer and going to bed. Which then of course means I stay up later because I want to see what they had to say! *laughs*
So I was wondering if it was a bookish thing. How many of you lovely people are night owls? Do you tend to write posts and do commenting later at night? Are you one of those scary people who like getting up super early in the morning and doing all your bloggy stuff then? If you could only choose one time of day for the rest of your life, would you be a day person or a night person?
