Blog Hop Friday 10/1/10

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING!  The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun!  This is a weekly event!

This week's question comes from Tina who blogs at Book Couture.
"How do you spread the word about your blog?
(e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs...)"
My Answer:  Mostly through meme's such as the blog hop!  I post my reviews on Goodreads and I have a Twitter account.  I'm also a member of Books Blog Ning.  I think by leaving comments on other blogs that I follow has really helped as well.  I'm still working at it but I'm pretty happy with my following so far!


  1. Hopping by to say Hi! I am a new follower.
    Have a great Weekend!

  7. Yeah, Good Reads is such a wonderful tool... not only for keeping track of your own stuff... but because you can join specific groups with common interests there too... where it's generally agreed upon that you get together to discuss that specific interest :)

    Check out my Blog Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway!

  8. Hi,

  10. Just hopping by on the book blogger hop. I'm loving your blog. Halloween and fall rock, so your background really has me. Plus, the more book loving Mom's around the better. I've got 2 of my own and they are a ball of crazy I tell ya. I'll be following to see what you post next.

  11. Just hoppin' on by! <3

    I'm a new book blogger, so I have no idea what I'm doing. I try to tweet, but I feel like my attempts are so transparent that people KNOW I'm trying to network.

    So mostly I just visit other blogs and comment on their reviews or content, and I end up making friends that way. :D

    My hop :3

  12. Hopping by to return the visit and follow! I just now joined Book Blogs Ning, since so many bloggers today said what a great resource it was. :-)

  13. Hi - stopping by through the Hop. Your Reading With Tequila badge cracks me up.

    With a family of my own - I should probably pay attention to your coupon tips. :) I'll be following you now.

  14. Stopping back for a visit.

    Just hopping by...stop by my blog to see how I "advertise." :)

    Happy Hopping.

  15. Thank you for being a new follower of mine this week, I'm really enjoying your blog and I wanted to show you appreciation by passing on the Cherry On Top Award to you. Come back to my blog and check it out :)
