I'd heard about the Book Blogger Hop before, but I don't always have a lot of time. I decided to make some time for it this weekend. For those visiting The Book Stew for the first time, welcome!!
The hop is a way for folks to go around and randomly hit up other book bloggers and see what they're writing about. As I'm in a transitional reading state--and also a bit of a transition in terms of how I want to use The Book Stew--I figured this might be a good thing for me to participate in this weekend.
The question for this weekend is a pretty good one: How do you promote your book blog?
Honestly, I don't really do a lot. I will tweet when I get a new review up, the same as what I do for Panel Patter, where I post reviews and things on comics. I keep the two separate because I feel like there's a different audience for comics and "book book" (as I like to call them), though perhaps that's not as true as it used to be.
There are so many good book blogs out there (and I hope to add a few to my RSS after this weekend!) I just don't know where Book Stew fits in. I tend to read older books as a rule, and I don't read primarily from a certain genre. I think that hurts me when I'm trying to find a place in the larger book-blogging world.
But hey, part of the advantage to having your own blog is that you can do whatever you'd like! :)
So anyway, welcome again to those stopping by from the Hop, and I hope you find a review or two that interest you. Please come by again, we're always open and always serving!
