Follow Friday! Weeee!

Book Blogger Hop

Hello all. I haven't done the follow Friday for a couple weeks, and I've missed it. It's just fun to meet new bloggers, and hear from the followers I already have. I think I also missed answering the weekly question.

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

I think like a lot of people I didn't know how to spread the word about my blog. It was actually something that I started on myspace for my friends and then moved over to blogger, so I wasn't thinking about trying to get a lot of followers. When I moved over to blogger I started to think it would be great to maybe have a few more readers. I didn't know what to do. I thought the best way would be to follow other blogs that were like mine. I couldn't find very many through web searches. Then I found the book blogs ning which really got the ball rolling. I was able to really find a community of blogs that were like mine. I joined groups and started to try to make friends. I have to say though the best thing I done to spread the word about my blog is this Follow Friday post. It gives you so many opportunities to contact people and let them contact you.




Yay! Parajunkee's Follow Friday. I've been a follower of the featured blog this week for awhile. Books With Bite is a lovely blog you should run over and check it out is you haven't already. Keep it shiny!

Hi Jazz, I think I begged and pleaded with friends to follow my blog at first! I find that the Book Blogger Hop really increased readership so I am very thankful to Jennifer.

Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend, Bonnie

Yeah, when I started blogging, it was for myself, to keep track of all these danged books I read, LOL. I've since dragged my friends into it :)

I think this hop might be the most effective promotional device there is!
