Book Blogger Hop (3) and Follow Friday (1)
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer (yay for her awesome name!) over at Crazy For Books. This is a great meme! My primary goal in blogging is to meet a bunch of awesome people who share the same stupid crazy love for YA that I do.
The question for this week is:
"How do you spread the word about your blog?
(e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs...)"
My Answer: At first, I had no freaking idea. I still really have no freaking idea. But I try to do my best to comment on lots of reviews, discussion posts, interviews. And something non-generic, because a comment that has zero thought and is just a shameless plug is annoying. Twitter has also assisted BIG time in getting to know other bloggers/authors. I try (and often forget) to tweet reviews to authors and publishers. Most people are really nice and do end up replying to you/visiting/following your blog!
But I'm in no big hurry. Right now the blog is still a baby and I'm not expecting much traffic. So, if people visit, then they visit. All I can do is hope to have somewhat readable content and hope for the future.
Looking forward to reading all the other answers this week and maybe getting some tips on better networking!
And speaking of expanding my networking and spreading the word about the blog, I've decided to participate in Follow Friday, hosted by Parajunkee, in addition to BBH. Hoping to meet a bunch of great bloggers this way, too!
This week's question is:
What books have bitten you?
My Answer: Twilight, Twilight, always Twilight. I can't help it. That is what got me started with reading again and I will love that series forever and ever. Amen.
More recently, Nevermore by Kelly Creagh has me completely enraptured <3 The Hunger Games Series, Shade, Shadow Hills. All amazing books.
Well, I'm outta here to start hopping and following. Hope everyone has a great day!
