First October Hop

Is it Friday again already? Wow, time is really flying. I can't believe it's October already! Anyways, lets get to the point of the Hop! Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop in order for us lovely bloggers to mingle and find other great book blog. 
Book Blogger Hop

This week Jennifer chose a question from Tina, 
"How do you spread the word about your blog?
(e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs...)"

I much admit I'm not the greatest with this. Really I started off by blogging my reviews on livejournal and cross posting them here and eventually started to direct people over to this blog. It was slow going, and still is. I'm a shy person in real life and on the internet that isn't much different. I use assets like the hop and weekly memes to get to know other bloggers who share my taste in books. Every so often i tell myself i'll really start to use goodreads to it's full potential but I never really do. I did create a twitter a little over a week ago specifically for Loving Books, so I am trying! 

I won't bore all of you with the weekly update today because I'll have a month in review (ok, i already posted it. Follow the link!) post up within the next few hours.

Good moring,
Sarah . Hey dont feel bad about being shy. I think the main thing is to enjoy what you are doing and find a way that's comfortable for you.
Well just my opinon ,anyway.

Happy HOP! My internet just went nuts on me mid posting my comment so I'm not sure whether it went through. I'll share my comment again :) I was just saying I use the weekly memes as the chance to visit with othe blogs and see what they're up to. It's been alot of fun and it's helped with inviting people to visit my blog. Enjoy your weeked.

Come HOP by my blog and visit

I have a Goodreads account but I don't really use it to it's fullest. Every so often I tell myself I'll get going with it, but I don't. I prefer memes and commenting.

I'm now following you!

Make sure you share your twitter link in your sidebar!!

I love Good Reads... although not so much for networking my blog, I just find it to be one of the best places to actually keep track of ratings, reviews and what page I'm on! :)

Check out my Blog Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway!

Hi Sarah! Thanks for visiting my blog. I love yours and am now a follower. I started off on LiveJournal as well then discovered blogger.

I see you've read the HP series this year. Was it your first time through it? I absolutely love the books.

Hi there,

Stopping by as part of the Hop! I had my reviews on LJ, too, once upon a looong time ago.

If you have to read a Faulkner (I read 3, and that was enough), As I Lay Dying is a good choice. If you like it, try another, but don't feel bad if you don't. I think he may be falling out of favor, and I don't see that as a bad thing. ;)

Stephany said...

Heyy! Thanks for stopping by my blog!! I love the idea of the month in review!! Mind if I use this idea as well??? I'm now following you!

Happy Hopping.

Stopping by on the hop--I'm already a follower! I have to put in a word for Faulkner because if he is falling out of favor, the world must be falling apart!

Avid Book Reader said...

Hi there! I like your blog and am a new follower =) I noticed you are considering Goodreads. I'm on that website, but I like Shelfari more than Goodreads. You may want to check that site out as well.

Happy Reading! =)

I just started as I Lay Dying and I'm not sure if I like it yet, but I'm suprised to hear that Faulkner is falling out of favor and am glad to see so many people upset about it.

Thanks everyone for Hopping by! I'm gonna work on getting back around to everyone tonight!
