Update: I’m not able to reply to comments or visit other blogs today because my internet is being dodgy, but it should be back to normal by tomorrow. Thanks for all the comments and visits everyone.
This is the first Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Crazy For Books, that I’m actually taking part in. I’ve been following it for awhile, but this is the first time I have either had time to participate or haven’t had a post scheduled.
The basic principle is not just to answer a question like a lot of memes out there at the moment, but to be part of a blogging community and hopefully find new blogs to read or new blogging friends to make. It’s basically a book blog party each weekend.
Each weekend there is a new question to answer and this week it’s the following;
How do you spread the word about your blog? (e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs…)”
I use a combination of a Facebook page, Twitter, and blogging directories. I used to run a lot of forums and websites so I have a lot of advertising know how and tricks up my sleeve, but I just don’t have as much time to spend online like I used to so I don’t spend that much energy doing it anymore.
I’m not really focused on getting my blog out there as I used to be with forums because I’m really just a blogging junkie and am really only blogging for the fun of it. I do comment on other blogs more now and participate in memes just for fun, not to spread the word.
Of course If I get followers and comments that’s a bonus, but I’m not about to push for it. It may all change when I start writing more (or again) to the point where I’m almost finished something and am ready to publish, but I doubt very much I’ll use my blog for that anyway.
And there’s the long answer, no short answers today! Oh wait, is there ever a short answer?
If you want to take part in this weekend’s hop click the banner and let us know if you do so I can be nosy and see what your answer is!
