TGIF (24): Social Networking

TGIF at GReads is a feature by the fabulous Ginger, who asks us a fun question to answer every week. It's always a joy to be a part of this, and I think everyone certainly should try it out!

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 trying to cut back on my social networking intake these days, but I have found Twitter to be an especially effective way to promote my blog. I get the word out to my Twitter followers about new posts, giveaways and reviews and they get the word out by retweeting and so on.

Twitter has also been a great way to "meet" and talk to my book blogger friends - and that's actually the main reason I really love it in connection to book blogging.

Other than Twitter, I also use Facebook (via a page) to promote my posts, though I don't use that one as often. I also post on Tumblr and Pinterest.

  2. Hopping through. I agree that Twitter is a great tool for meeting other bloggers. I've had that same experience as well.

  3. Twitter is my favorite, too. Ahem, it's how I got to first "meet" you! Thank you again for taking time to have dinner with Estelle and me on Tuesday. It was awesome to meet you. xoxo

  4. Twitter is so addictive! I have tumbler, but havne't gotten to use it much. And HOLY WOW! Just saw you've read 38 books so far this year! That's awesome!

  5. It's funny, I started and built my foundation on facebook so the majority of my blog traffic funnels through there. I'm late in the game on twitter but growing steadily. @JRWagner2

  6. I love Twitter too! I'd always been scared of Twitter, but decided to use it to make wonderful new friends like you! I love it now, and enjoy keeping up with everyone's blogs and exciting moments in their lives. :)

  7. It's awesome for discussing things with friends... like you! :)

  8. It's one of my favorite memories of 2012 already. I hope I get to see you again this year!
