First up is the Feature and Follow Friday hosted at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. This week I was supposed to take a picture of myself with my favorite read. Well, I forgot. But, what my favorite read is currently is anything I can get on my Kindle (this is the one I have). I thought I wouldn’t like an e-reader, but I love that thing. Especially with all the e-books I get for reviews now, that is one of the best tools a book reviewer can have in her (or his) tool case!
Oh, and I’m also including a picture of myself, just in case you are curious. This is a picture of me and my husband from a wedding we went to last weekend.
“Book blogging is more than just reading. Who helped you set up or run your blog? Or did you do it all yourself?”
Well, I pretty much run my entire blog myself. It’s a lot of work. I also have another blog, Schooling a Monkey, that I also run. I wouldn’t say that I really got help from anyone in particular, but I have gleaned information and tips from bloggers who are currently more successful than I am!
In terms of followers I am still a noob, but I have seen significant increases in the success of my blog by following some of the things that “professional” bloggers do. For example, I recently learned that sharing something with a photo base, rather than a simple link base is a more effective way to get people to click on it and view the post. That is something I learned randomly from a successful blog that I follow!
I got the recommendation of what theme to use from my friend who is a wordpress whiz. She makes websites for some really big names.
So, what about you? Don’t forget to include your link to your FF and BBH posts so I can follow you back!
