Friday Hops (Oct 1)


How do you spread the word about your blog??

At first I was so clueless that I maintained my blog on and off since 2008-2009. Then came August of this year that I really started getting serious with blogging. First I added links of my post and shared through Facebook, then decided to add my blog to Facebook instead for automatic posting. Then I visited a few blogs and commented from there. It's always a matter of building connection and gaining friends. Also added my blog link to email signatures, article submitting sites, added my reviews to Goodreads and other websites.

How did you do yours???

  2. Just popping in to say hi, I'm an old follower:) I know you said you don't use Twitter and I found it really confusing at first, but now I'm completely addicted to it. Outside of the hops, it's how I've met so many other bloggers! I love Goodreads as well, that's a great community. Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. Well, I will be a follower as soon as your follower form fills back up. For some reason, and I don't know if it's just me or everyone, but I have a problem some time joining GFC. There isn't anywhere for me to join, the field is blank. In any case, I have your name written down to join when I can. Hope you won't hold that against me and visit my blog.

  15. Oh my goodness I was so clueless too...for like... a YEAR. Until I read on an author's blog about ARCs (which I'd never known about) and decided I wanted one. Then I went on to figure out what needed to be done to get them... and then more and more research followed!!!

    Check out my Blog Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway!

  19. 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

  20. Hi i am an old follower. I agree with Jenny above about Twitter. It is a helpful comm tool when you want to reply to someone who comments when you list your twitter handle in your signature.

  21. I'm still learning to get the word out about my blog. I use Twitter and Goodreads. I came to Goodreads late, in the beginning I thought it was too much work. But it is a good resource. It is nice to have publishers and publicists come to you, but I'm still working on getting more reader interaction. I know giveaways are a good way, but I don't want someone to follow my blog simply for that reason.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
