Book Blogger Hop (22)

Want to find new book blogs or spread the word about your own? 

Then head over to Crazy-for-Books and sign up for the Book Blogger Hop! You can sign up HERE. Well, what are you waiting for? GO!

It's Friday! Time for another Book Blogger Hop!!

This is a weekly event, hosted here, where book bloggers and readers can connect to find new blogs to read. It's a great way to network with other bloggers and make new friends! 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! 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 Hopping!! Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.

If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know! Stop back during the week to see other blogs that are added! And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN!!

Question of the Week: How do you spread the word about your blog? (e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs...)

My Answer: Yet another great question. I've actually been doing a terrible job of spreading the word about my blog, lately. I've just been so dang busy. When I do have the time, I try to comment on other blogs and I participate in things like the Book Blogger Hop. I'm signed up in the YA Book Blog Directory, too. I've also found that hosting contests on your blog is a great way to gain followers. (By the way, expect anther giveaway soon!)

Happy Friday!

In answer to this week's question, I signed up for the YA Book Blog Directory (though I never got listed lol)

Other than that, I'm on goodreads, I try to comment on everyone's blogs, and I tweet sometimes haha :)

I hear you on the getting the word out on your blog. I've been pretty horrible about doing the same for my blog.

I'm a new follower of your blog as this is the first time I think I've ever been here but I'm pretty impressed with what you've got up. It looks like we read about the same kind of books so I look forward to following along as you review the books you're reading.

Keep up the good work and have a great weekend!

Yup, I'm an infrequent commenter as well. I try to set aside some time every weekend to check out all the blogs I'm following, but sometimes I'm just too exhausted. :-)

Hey Amber, how's it going? I found you on the hop, and I'm psyched to see what you come up with next. Definitely hop me back if you get a chance! :)

New follower here!

Hosting contests IS a great way to put your name out there... both for the readers, and for you. I honestly find it very fun and rewarding to be able to give someone a random gift... perhaps something they would not have bought or read otherwise! And the responses are so energetic and fun! LOVE IT!
