Jorie | Guest Posts, Interviews & Podcasts

Jorie Story Guest Features badge created by Jorie in Canva.

There are times where I am happily surprised to be offered the chance to compose a guest feature for a fellow book blogger; add to a conversation within a bookishly lovely interview or co-host a podcast in the world of books. Initially, I cut my teeth in the world of podcasts in late 2013 until November 2015 when I was asked on three separate occasions to create original commentary and/or guest features to coincide with different events.

I am now receptive to entertaining new offers of the same moving into 2016.

Not until August, 2021 did I realise a lot of the content I had written for fellow book bloggers were no longer available online as their respective blogs have either been deleted or removed completely without an archive currently live online. I will be working on restoring these guest features to Jorie Loves A Story as a reference point for what I previously contributed to the following blogs. Thankfully Roof Beam Reader’s blog is still active and able to be read.

On 19 March 2014, I made my 3rd appearance on the Chamber after pitching my idea of bringing Hollie (@BooksUndergrnd) & Rosy (@BooksSubway) together *live on air!* Hollie had to opt-out due to her work load, but Rosy decided to come on the show to promote the mission of both ‘volunteer libraries’ on the rail systems in New York City & London!

I headed back as Co-Host & Guest Blogger to explain how I created the *idea!* behind “Booking the Rails!” Launching the feature the same day & the official hashtag: #BookingTheRails! Listen to Episode 16!

The night before Rosy & Jorie went on air; Jorie made a wicked sweet discovery: @BooksMetro (Books on the Metro – of Washington DC!)

  • Stephen & Hollie give a s/o to Jorie about her in-depth book review on behalf of the Road Ghosts series as well as the first vlog interview she hosted feat. E. Chris Garrison on Episode 107! (14th March, 2018) This was a surprise for me as I hadn’t expected them to talk about the recent blog tour I participated on during this podcast.

Although, I was the Chambers volunteer live tweeting secretary, I have decided on the eve of my blog’s first year anniversary (31 March, 2014) to step down from live-tweeting the weekly podcast, in order to pursue meeting-up with writers I have been blessed to get to know via Twitter Chats running concurrently on Wednesdays at 9pm. I will still tune in when an author is featured who is of interest, but I will not be a regular tweet from April 2014 – forward. I am grateful I was able to give as much of my time to listening & promoting the show up until this point! However, as I want to get back into my own fiction writings, I am taking the chance to interact with writers on a personal level who are inspiring me towards that goal!
