My favourite day of the week has come around again, which means it's time for a recap of what I've reviewed and for joining in the fun with Greads. Ginger's question this week is kind of a timely one as you'll see from my answer.
Do you use Twitter or Facebook to promote your blog? How has it benefited your book blogging experience? If not, how do you promote your blog? Share your twitter handle and/or Facebook link!
I've been using Facebook personally for years but I only started a page for the blog very recently. I'm finding it good for sharing things that I might not necessarily want to do a whole blog post for, but that could do with more than a 140 character tweet. My page is at www.facebook.com/TCBookedUp and if anyone wants to Like it I'd feel a little less like I'm talking to myself.
I had never used Twitter before starting an account for the blog, and I still don't have a personal one. I do find as I follow slightly more people than I have followers that finding time to read everything on my timeline is just not possible. I'm TCBookedUp on there if you want to hunt me down.
I really like using social media, I find it easier to keep track of conversations and build relationships with people than via Comments on the blog.For anyone who hasn't tried them yet, do it!
In the past week I have reviewed:
A Summer in the High Sierra by Laurence Brauer, and
Dawn's End Poisoned by Bonnie Ferrante
I also read Enza by Kristy K James; the review for that will be coming soon as part of a blog tour.
Before I wrap this post up I wanted to let you know about the St Patrick's Day Blowout that starts today. All the following are on offer at 99c/77p until Sunday night. I have reviewed some of these authors and books in the past so there are definitely some goodies in there. Full details and links are on David Gaughran's blog, and there is a competition running to win all 30 so drop by and take a look.
Have a great weekend,
