Book Blogger Hop and the Weekly Overview

Book Blogger Hop
Just click on the image above to join in the fun.

How do you spread the word about your blog?

Oooh, so a good question.  I have to be honest I'm a little shy about spreading the word, I just don't want people to feel like they're getting spammed.  I comment regularly on other blogs, which gives me surprising results.  Memes are a huge thing. This one probably is what has worked the best for me. The Story Sirens, In My Mail Box, and Book Chicks City My Wishlist are also some others I join in.

I post over at Book Blogs when ever I have a new review and for certain posts.

Weekly Overview:
  • Just want to thank everyone who commented and viewed Lips Don't Lie, it really makes me feel good that you like all of the author gossip.
  • Books and Babbles is dedicated to the Teen Reads Awards, I had so many questions about it I decided to give you what you wanted.
  • Found a lot of good books this week, and I started checking out what I missed in the Epic Fantasy genre. Wednesday Wishes.
  • Posted Octobers monthly releases.  I'm playing around with the format so it looks a little different from previous posts.  I don't think that's the final look.
  • Lips Don't Lie: Author Gossip will posted as usual tomorrow.
 Huge thanks to Jennifer at Book Noise, who bequeathed me with this awesome blogger award.  I've received it before so I have to take the lazy way out and not do the 7 post thing. 

Thank you so much Jennifer!! If you haven't checked out Book Noise take a look, it really is a unique blog.

I'm off to the hope!

You know, when I first started doing this I really worried about linking back to my blog... but I figured that I really appreciate it when people do that in my responses, because it's so much easier for me to find their blog that way... plus, I have several blogs, and if I don't link people back to my book blog, they usually end up at my craft blog... which is no good!

Check out my Blog Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway!

Shera (Book Whispers) said...

Really is, plus I get to through my opinion out there.

Enjoy yours too. Supposed to have perfect sunshine all weekend!!

Shera (Book Whispers) said...

Heather: Posting links in memes like this are the bomb. It makes is so easy to visit everyone.

Wow, I can barely keep up with my one blog. Go you!

Hi! I'm a new follower from the hop! I think memes and comments are the best way to get followers! We have very similar taste in books so I was excited to see all the October releases!

Shera (Book Whispers) said...

Congratulation on the award.

Happy weekend. Come see how I use the social networks.

Kristina Barnes♥ said...

Just hoppin' on by! <3

I feel a bit shy about my social networking too. I feel like I'm too transparent when I tweet, as if my tweets will scream, "HEY she's doing a sad attempt at networking!" or something. So I just check out other blogs that I've followed/comment, etc. :D

My hop :3

Shera (Book Whispers) said...

pussreboots: Enjoy you weekend too.

Kristina Barnes: I try to keep my tweets simple. Twitter still baffles me a lot.

redhead said...

congrats on your award! i think the best way to spread the word about your blog is do exactly what you're doing - comment on posts you like on other people's blogs. Sometimes i'll just google authors and books I like to see what blogs show up.

Shera (Book Whispers) said...

You know, I used to pop up a lot for Night's Cold Kiss. I even did a search for the author and I found my own blog popping up!

Thanks, awards are so heart warming.

Memes and comments do seem to be the best way to go about it. But I've also learned that I don't always have to leave a comment :-)

Elizabeth said...

Back for a visit...Hopping by.

Stop by my blog to see how I "advertise."

Shera (Book Whispers) said...

Kah Woei: I still leave comments just to do my duty. Because I know I love them!

Elizabeth: Thanks, I definitely will.
