Bookish Banter: Background noise while blogging?

A little Bookish Banter to get us through.  Bookish Banter is a little bit of banter about our bookish thoughts as we have a friendly discussion over a nice cup of tea. 

Do you like background noise when blogging?


I have to have some sort of background noise, it drives me crazy if I don't!

I generally like music when blogging, and actually, when doing almost anything. Before I discovered audio books (Thanks Jenn) I would listen to music when driving, cleaning, showering. Now I just listen to audio books all the time. But sadly, I cannot listen to audio books and blog, because soon I'll be typing what I'm listening to, and that's just annoying.

So, I like listening to music when blogging, because I can kinda sing along and jam out while still typing what I mean to be typing.

I sometimes watch TV while blogging, but it has to be something I've seen a million times, or else it will completely distract me from whatever I'm doing, or I'll keep rewinding because I missed something, and since I hadn't seen it before, I don't really want to miss anything.

So if I'm watching TV, while blogging, I have to be watching one of the following:

Yes, I use My Little Pony as background noise. Don't judge. I mostly watch Walking Dead whenever I need background noise, and I want something I don't have to concentrate on.


I have to have background noise with everything I do. It is just that though. Background noise. So I can't have anything on where I need to pay attention. It's really hard to work on a review or a discussion post while keeping up with a show like How TO Get Away With Murder.... just isn't going to happen. I will either miss half of the show or I will have no idea what I just posted...

Silence kills me though . I mean I just can't do it. I will go insane!!!! I am not a person who likes no noise. Even when I sleep I have to have loud white noise. Silence keeps my into my crazy head way too much... I Will be so CRAZY

So if I am with Ash we take turns television or music. She likes music more I like television more. I like music okay but I am not a music nut like her. I am a television junkie though. I will have the television on all the time just for the noise. I do like to watch it and pay attention too but I can use it just for the background noise. I like to watch house decorating and restoring shows, reality television such as the great food truck race or survivor or a show I have seen millions of times. like Walking Dead. To be honest though. It would be great if I could just listen to books while blogging. As you can probably guess... that would be a bad idea though. So television it is.

What do you do when you blog? Do you need background noise and if so what do you choose as your background noise?


  1. I generally have the tv when I'm doing almost anything, including blogging and reading. Like you guys, I like having the background noise, and it's usually something my husband is watching that I'm not really into, so I don't need to pay attention to it!

  2. oh well the thing is my entire life is background noise. All day. So I HAVE to blog like that :) But I CANNOT write like that! Maybe that's why I never seem to advance with my WIP! Great post Jenn Renee! :)

  3. I'll have the news or a film I've seen countless times on in the background when I read but if I'm tired, I do need silence around me to aid concentration.

  4. I need silence when I read, but I always blog with the TV on. I have to multitask to get everything done. I usually blog while catching up on all the stupid reality shows. I love those things.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  5. I'm one of those people that loves to have music in the background. I have a ridiculous amount of playlists through my itunes, spotify and Amazon, so I'm always rotating between all of them. But if I'm writing a review or reading a book? I need silence. Go figure lol!
