It's Blog Hopping Time!

Book Blogger Hop
Its Friday and its time for blog hopping! Its been awhile since I have done this.

If this is your first time visiting Beck's Books, Welcome and if it isn't Welcome back! I read almost anything. I mainly stick to anything romance, but it isn't unusual to find thriller/mystery reviews on here also. I even review a few kids books two since I have two little ones myself.

So, with the hop, go around and visit other book blogs, follow those you likes and you have a weekly question to answer. This meme is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books. Head on over and check out the hop!

This weeks question:
How do you spread the word about your blog? (e.g. social networking, book blog directories, comments on other blogs...)

This is a great question. When I first started book blogging (which I am still a newby), I did different meme's to find blogs I liked and hope they liked me back. I would comment on other blogs. I posted on my facebook page to let my friends know. I recently got twitter, and I think it has helped my blog, however I am not 100 percent sure. Its sometimes hard to know where your followers come from. I am also part of Book Blogs and I have really enjoyed the forums there. They are very helpful. This very blog hop helped my blog a lot and helped me find blogs I liked too. I think it is also important however to make the blog all you. Make sure you stand out on it.

Thanks for hopping by. Check out my giveaways while your here.

Thanks for swinging by my site and posting your link to your review for The Wedding Gift. I hate to write a bad review, so it's great to have someone else share that they liked it -- I feel terrible for the author when I write that, and I know I'm on the "you-know-what list" with them, but not every book is for everybody! :)

Here's my Hop: Coffee and a Book Chick -- Blog Hop...

It is hard to tell what has worked best for networking your blog. I think memes have worked really well for me, plus I've found so many great blogs through them!

Just hopping by. Really like your blog and it seems we've been blogging for around the same length of time! I also had this background until very very recently! Will be back :)

Agreed, I've always just assumed most of my followers come from the Hop.

New follower btw :)

I really have no idea if Twitter has done anything for me in terms of people seeing my blog and checking it out or not!

Besides, I want people to read my blog because they like it, not because they're on a follower hunt. I've been working hard to have better informed reviews... because I don't want to give people bad advice!
