As I mentioned last week, I have been spending time really trying to connect with other book bloggers and be more interactive. For the first time I participated in something called “Top Ten Tuesday”. This is a weekly feature started by another book blog, The Broke and The Bookish. They post topics each Tuesday and book bloggers and encouraged to make their own list, and link back to The Broke and The Bookish. This was a great opportunity to connect because book bloggers could go directly to my blog from the link I posted. I had a few new visitors comment on my list and they were very welcoming and encouraging! I am going to try and participate in Top Ten Tuesday more often as a way to get more involved.
You can read my Top Ten Tuesday list here.
I found another feature called “What are you reading Wednesday” (#WAYRW) from the blog It’s a Reading Thing. But I did not discover this in enough time to participate this week so I will save it for next week. It works like this:
How to participate:
Grab the book you are currently reading and answer three questions:
1. What’s the name of your current read?
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
Another thing I have been focusing on this week is being more interactive on twitter, I have been entering book blogger giveaways and directly tweeting other authors or book bloggers.
I am finding it difficult to keep my Reads by Amy blog, twitter, and instagram updated regularly while also trying to keep my personal/professional accounts updated. I am trying to find a balance it is very time consuming to keep updated on all these accounts.That being said- after I am done this post I am off to Reads by Amy to do my next book review! Check it out!
