The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by CoffeeAddictedWriter. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
This Week’s Topic is:
How often do you post on your blog and/or social media? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
I recently talked about this topic on the blog, i’ve been trying to be as active and post as much as i can. I had my blog very forgotten until last October when i started posting more regularly and since then i haven’t stopped making content. I really enjoy blogging, almost as much as i enjoy reading, only it gives me a little more anxiety.
It’s difficult to function much when not being able to post makes me anxious. I’ll be worried all week if i know i can’t post enough or if i didn’t read a book and i don’t have a review to post.
Still, i manage to post as much as i can, because i love posting stuff for you guys. I know my audience isn’t big but the few views i get, make me happy and i always want to be there for you sharing all the book related stuff that i can.
These days i changed a bit the way i was posting, and now the schedule looks different from how it was before. At the moment the posting schedule on my blog is:
Monday: Book Blogger Hop (weekly meme)
Tuesday : Top 5 Tuesday (weekly meme)
Wednesday: WWW Wednesday (weekly meme), Can’t-Wait Wednesday (weekly meme)
Friday: Let’s Talk Bookish (weekly meme)
Satuday: Free day or freebie, according to how i’m feeling.
Obviosuly since i’m doing a lot of weekly memes i’m leaving behind a little my own content which i’m planning on post on Satudays or in between other posts.
I have more memes and reviews i make some times i have: Random Post Sunday, Reminisicing Monday, Old Friend Revisited, Thoughts on Thursday, Books on Sale (which i post when i find great deals), Reading the Classics, TBR of the month, Anticipated Books for the month, Favorites of the month and the Monthly Wrap up.
As i said before in previous posts i also have a lot of ideas for posts i need to find the time to write and share with you.
I know it looks like a lot of work but blogging is one of my favorite hobbies, and if i didn’t have the time i wouldn’t be doing it so much.
As for social media i have to admit as i’m an anxious person it is very difficult for me to use them. I know a blog it’s a kind of social media but it is the only kind that doesn’t give me anxiety that much. I used to be a lot more active on twitter (two years ago) because of a fandom i was in, and i used tumblr a lot and i still do sometimes, i just had to give up a little on them because they were too difficult to handle for me.
I know social media could help a lot to my views and the traffic on my blog, but seriously, it is so difficult for me use them i prefer work a little harder on how much and what i blog than use social media.
Oh, i totally forgot about goodreads… does it count as a social media? Because i do use it, especially for my reading challenge but i find it hard to post my reviews there and like share much of my reading experience. I prefer my blog, it feels saffer a less stressful to me.
I hope this answers every question that could pop in your mind about how i post, why i do it this way and why i don’t particularly use social media.
