Book Blogger Hop #2

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books  and is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! 

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

Well, this is were I sheepishly shrug as I don't really promote this blog much. I've only been serious about running this for 6 weeks or so - which basically means I'm as much of a newbie as you could hope to find! I've only really told two of my friends that I'm doing this now - my two reading buddies, so I'm just working away in the corner for my own amusement more than anything. But it is nice when people stop by!

I guess the only things I've been doing to find other people out there is taking part in the Book Blogger Hop (although this is only my second time!), Book Chick City's Wishlist on Saturdays and reading other blogs - trying desperately to think something interesting to comment! It's difficult but I know how excited I get when I get a comment - or *an even more excited squeal*, a follower!

So I love this topic as I can see what everyone else out there is doing - and hopefully pick up a few tips! But if you're stopping by what do recommend I do to get the word out there? :)


  1. Just popping in via the hop to say hi! I went through some of your reviews and saw you recently read Jeaniene Frost's Halfway to the Grave, that is one of my absolute favorite series, I adore Bones. I'm looking forward to the next one in February! Glad to be a new follower of yours and I hope you have a great weekend:)

  2. Hia! I'm visiting from the hop. I do lots of my reading on public transport too, I have a hour bus journey to and from work every day!

    I don't do much promotion wise either, but I am on the Book Blog Directory ( so you could try that, although I find I don't often get visits from it.

  3. Well, I usually tweet about new posts on Twitter and that's about it. But then, like you I'm a complete newbie! I started my blog on July 21st, it hasn't even had the shiny rubbed off it ;)

    But I've found that the Twitter thing really helps, so that would be my tip!

  4. Hopping by for the first time...hope you are having fun at the blog hop.

    Stop by my blog to see how I advertise....I like your blog.
