This Week’s Question:
Top Ten Tips For New Book Bloggers
- For those of you on Blogger, do yourself a big FAT freaking favor and use Windows Live Writer to format and schedule your posts. TRUST ME. (P.S. I am trustworthy.) See here and here for proof of WLW awesomeness.
- Don’t feel like you have to post every day! Quality over Quantity! (I know, I should take my own advice)
- Don’t let this beloved hobby turn into a chore.
- Do not accept more review requests than you can handle! This is a mistake many newbies make. There will come a time where you finally feel comfortable saying No.
- Do not let your OWN books go unread. Tell that to my 400+ lonely ass books that stare at me daily and plead for a good reading…
- Do not let this beloved hobby turn into a chore. Oh wait, did I say that already?
- Professionalism and Personality! And yes, you can be professional and still let your personality shine. I do it all the damn time. :Þ Always let your personality shine. It is so very important to be yourself. It’s what makes you stand out.
- Do everyone a favor and remain honest, but remember that professionalism! There is a way to do both. And don’t compare your review writing skills to those who blow your top off. You have your own way of doing things, and if you stay true to yourself, then your job is done.
- Post your reviews elsewhere, such as Goodreads, LibraryThing and Amazon.
- Utilize social media but don’t go overboard and drive people crazy. I probably do that sometimes, but I try to keep it in check.
