Book blog hop and follow!

Book Blogger Hop
 
Book blogger hop is hosted by Crazy for books
 
This weeks question is: "How do you spread the word about your blog?
(e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs...)"
My answer: I started blogging because a few of my friends were already blogging and I went with them to a author interview. I decided that I read so much anyways, I should start writing reviews and get my thoughts out there. But from there I had no idea where to go and get followers. After awhile I found the hop/follow, then a few other book related sites. Got the word out that way. Comment, comment, comment on other blogs. Really can't stress that one enough. I also go to lots of author signings and chit chat with fellow book fans there. Spread the word around with the other bloggers. I always love meeting other bloggers at book signings.

  3. Happy HOP! I totally agree that the best way for people to get to know you is through commenting. I mainly do the weekly memes and visit all the blogs on the link list. Its gives me the chance to say hello and what each blogger is up to. People see me and hopefully come visit in return. So far it's been alot of fun :) Happy reading.

  8. I started my blog because I just wanted somewhere to write down my thoughts on books, then I realized what a huge community was out there and started following more and more and more blogs in an attempt to better my own reviews.

    I'm always worried I'm too vague. I'm always looking for a little something new to improve my reviews with.

  12. Just hoppin' on by! <3

    I'm a new book blogger, so I have no idea what I'm doing. I try to tweet, but I feel like my attempts are so transparent that people
    KNOW I'm trying to network.

    So mostly I just visit other blogs and comment on their reviews or content, and I end up making friends that way. :D

    My hop :3

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
