Friday Hopping!


This week's question: How do you spread the word about your blog (e.g. social networking sites, book blog directories, comments on other blogs, etc.)?

I haven't been blogging that long so it's definitely been a learn-as-I-go type of process. Mostly, I like to hop around to other sites and leave comments, not just "great review" comments but ones that are honest and a little more in depth. I think everyone likes getting comments on the reviews we spend so much time writing, so that's been my main way of both finding great blogs and getting great followers in return. I also use Twitter quite a bit, it's been the best way outside of the hops to meet new bloggers and keep up to date on happenings in the book world!

Thanks as always to Crazy for Books for hosting the hop!

  4. Just hoppin' on by! <3

    I use Twitter sometimes. But mostly I think I'm transparent with my tweets and think they come off as lame attempts to network. :S I've seen you tweeting up a storm sometimes! :P

    My hop :3

  5. Happy HOP!! I agree with leaving comments other than "Great review" You put alot of heart into your reviews so it's nice to get feedback :) I use Twitter alot but mostly I do the weekly memes. Works for me!

  8. I don't really use Twitter. I didn't have the patience to learn it. But since fellow bloggers use it, maybe it's time that I learn how to tweet. :)

    Already am a follower through GFC. Dropping by to say have a great weekend!! :)

  9. Just stopping by from the Hop. I like to comment on blogs too, I think it's the best way to get involved in the blogging community and promote your blog. I don't have twitter yet, I'm thinking about it though.

    Have a great weekend :)

  11. Hello and Happy Friday!I've got an award for you here http://bookstobrightenyourmood.blogspot.com/2010/10/versatile-blogger-award.html

  12. I agree with the more personal comments, when I get a "Great post! Come check out me!" or something of the like... I pretty much figure the person hasn't even read what I wrote... and is just fishing for followers.

    Crazy as it may seem, I actually want my followers to be interested in what I'm posting :P

    I have a twitter account, but I don't think I'm utilizing it as much as I could. I do love these hops though!!!

    Stop by and check out my Book Blogger Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway!

  19. Greetings via the Hop!

    I use Twitter, too... but I don't think it really makes a lot of difference. I actually get the most traffic (and comments) from the Book Blogger Hop.

  20. You are like the world's best Tweeter! I aspire to Tweet like you someday. I am absolutely terrible at it.

    I agree with you about meaningful comments. Sometimes it is clear that a person has not even looked at the content on a blog and is just commenting to get followers.

  23. Your blog is incredible and you've not even been doing it that long! Your layout is amazing and your reviews are brilliantly written - thought you'd been going a couple of years not a few months. Will be back for sure :)

  24. Hello, new follower hopping through from the blog hop. You've got a lovely blog here so I'm looking forward to reading more of what you have to say about the books you're reading.

    Happy Friday!

  25. Thank you for hopping by and following me! I'm so excited for your blog because I am discovering I like the supernatural books a little bit more than I expected. You have a bunch of books that I want to read (Incarceron, Rage...etc.) and I can't wait to get to them and review them and share it. Have your read Iron King? I wanna read that one too but I wanna hear more opinions of it first. Thanks again for your comment, have a great weekend!
