Friday Blog Hop

Book Blogger Hop

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...)"

I started blogging in April and found a whole, new world. I didn't realize how big the blogging community really is! Of course I would like the whole universe to read and hear what I have to say. But I have found that it is a full time job promoting oneself. I have a full time job and I'm a mother of three active kids. I could be at the computer ALL DAY spreading the word about my blog, but there is a real world out there that I have to partake in (although somedays I just want to hide behind the screen) I have recently joined twitter to help promote my blog, but again, tweeting takes time. Like anything else, I do my best and try to have balance in my life. Blog hops help me to meet and comment on other blogs, and thankfully, I have made some online friends and followers and they come back to read what I have to say. So, happy hopping and I hope you read something on my blog that will bring you back time and again.


  1. Just hopping by to say hi. Bookend Diaries

  2. I don't really publicise my blog on any social network site. Happy blog hopping/folowing!

    Here is my post! I am a very serious eclectic reader. I follow blogs I like via google reader too!

  3. Hi,
    I'm stopping by your blog on the Blog Hop and for Follow Friday. I hope you have a beautiful weekend and get lots of reading done. :)

    I'm a old follower.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It sounds like our blogging philosophy is alike. I'm already a follower and look forward to reading your reviews.

  5. Thanks for hopping by my blog. I'm a new follower and I'll be grabbing your button on my way out. =)

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Hi there, thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm going to follow you on twitter later on when I sign in if that's okay XD

    I know how it feels to want to computer dwell all day, alas there is a real world out there that we have to go out into sometimes... lol have a great weekend!

  8. Hi-I am returning the blog hop visit-I like the design of your blog a lot

  9. You've read my response, so you know I feel quite similarly. Here's the link to my review of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
    Now, I will go see if I can find yours. Have a great weekend!

  10. Thank you for stopping by my blog! As a student, I see improper grammar in my fellow students' writing every day, too. So I do my best to promote good grammar as often as I can. I can only imagine how much more frustrating it must be for a teacher, to have to see it all the time.

    Have a wonderful weekend! :]

  11. Happy HOP !! I hear you on how easy it could to spend all day on the computer blogging. I work full time, raise a family and somewhere in there find time to blog, read and write. Anything left over I use to sleep LOL I think that's why I love and appreciate the weekly activities available. I can't tell you how helpful it is to have that linky list filled with amazing blogs. I don't have to remember everyone's links etc. I see your names click and YAY I'm there. I don't want to say that's how I "promote" my blog but I feel in order to get visited you need to go visit and it works for me. Anyway I've no doubt rambled your ear off so enjoy your weekend :)

    Come HOP by my blog and visit

  12. loving finding new blog friends on this hop - - we'd love to have you come visit

  13. Hi Mandy,

    Thank you for stopping by my blog - I followed you back to yours. :)

    As for suggestions for Romantic Suspense - I am new to the genre and finding authors as I go along - I just found Eileen Wilks and her World of the Lupi series. The first book is Tempting Danger. I enjoyed it very much. :)

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  14. Stopping by on the Hop. I don't do a whole lot to intentionally promote my blog...I've found this Hop to be one of the best for getting my blog out there and finding great new ones to visit.

  15. You know, I never realized how big the book blogging community was either until I really started getting into it! Then I was shocked and amazed by the things that could happen if you really did delve in!!!

    Yeah, I could easily spend all day here too, it's waaaaay too addicting!

    Check out my Book Blogger Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway HERE!!

  16. Blogging is a lot of fun...I have been doing it since July and LOVE IT.

    Stopping back for a visit......just hopping by.

    Stop by my blog if you like to see how I get the word out:

  17. Thank you for stopping by my blog! Sorry I'm a bit late getting back you to-I've been way too busy with school work!
