School has been pretty hectic the past week. Several tests and homework, but luckily next week I have one test and no homework! Funny, that.
In the spirit of the Friday Follow, I thought it would be cool to do a Book Blogger Hop to give us all bookies a chance to connect and find new blogs that we may be missing out on! So, I created this weekly BOOK PARTY where book bloggers and readers can connect to find new blogs to read, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start PARTYING!!
How do you spread the word about your blog?
(e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs…)?
I think, that even though I am still quite new to the book blogosphere, I have made a successful blog in the past, and on WordPress, it is all down to tagging your posts with the right tags. I think that is a really important element, and it helps Google attach those words to a post and gets more searches for you.
Other than that, I do a lot of social networking, i.e. the usual suspects. Twitter being the home of connecting in the book blogosphere. If you’re not on there, you miss a lot.
I make sure to link my name to my blog whenever I comment on other peoples’ blogs – which I don’t do enough of 😦 – so that they have somewhere to look if they want to reply back to you.
And when I first started, I plugged my name into everything I could find – all these directories and search engines for book blogs, a lot of networking via the popular memes, such as this one, and if you notice, I haven’t been networking a lot, and that is just to refrain from looking like all I DO is networking. So at the moment I am not really advertising much, and letting all the hits come from people searching for reviews!
