Book Blogger Hop

Happy Friday! It's time for the Book Blogger Hop. I love the questions we get each week to get to know each other better. I've been learning so much from all of the wonderful bloggers out there.

This weeks question is: "How do you spread the word about your blog?"

When I first started blogging I had no clue there was such a big book blogging community! I started out with just my friends following, then I discovered Book Blogs Ning. That helped me really discover the community.

I began participating in memes such as this one as well as In My Mailbox and Waiting on Wednesday. I also got involved with Bloggiesta this year. In addition to this, I include information about my blog in my email signature and I often post about what I'm doing on my blog on Facebook.

And of course, there is networking through blogs. I love reading other blogs and I try to comment as much as I can. I've been having a hard time lately keeping up with the busyness of back to school and getting into a new routine. But I'm able to read and comment more and more each day which is great!

What has worked well for you when networking your blog? Thanks for taking the time to hop by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Hi, Shan!

    Thanks so much for stopping by Literary Obsession. I love getting new visitors and I get absolutely giddy over comments.

    I've been reading through your reviews and I like how thorough you are. I'm a new follower through GFC and can't wait to see more of what you write. :)

  9. I think commenting is the best way to spread the word, just being kind and genuinely interested in what someone has to say.

    Anywhoo, thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following you too :D Have a great weekend!
