Blog Hop/Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way to for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There’s a new question every week that all the participating blogs have to answer. This week, Tina of Book Couture asks, “How do you spread the word about your blog?”

Answer: I don’t do much social networking (twitter, facebook, etc.), but I do have accounts at Goodreads, Library Thing, Book Blogs, and Audiobook Community. I do the Blog Hop and Follow Friday every Friday and leave comments for the people I visit. I really enjoy hosting giveaways. That’s probably the easiest way I get my name out there. I have a good job and make more money than I need right now. I do save most of it, but I don’t mind using it to send people books every now and then. I’m all about sharing the love of books with others. I think that kind of thing really draws people in to a book blog.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. This is another meme that helps book bloggers connect. The featured blog this week is Savannah at Books with Bite.

Be sure to check out my giveaways!

Happy Hopping, everyone!
