When I first started My book blog I didn't know if I was going to get to many views on it. I've finally got 5100+ right now. Its nice to see how many views I get when I check everyday.
I was just wondering where else I can post my book blog to get more views. I've been in to look at quite a few other peoples blogs to see what they've been reading and I've noticed there's a lot of followers on their blogs. Its nice to see that others are doing will on theirs.
Any suggestions would be nice.
MEMES! memes are little things you can do that will show your personality to your viewers. People want to be able to relate to you- see parts of them (or their life) in you. Memes are a great way to do that, since your not strictly reviewing, or critiqueing literature you can have a bit of fun and let your style shine through.
An Example of a Meme: Memory Lane Mondays, Cover VS Cover, Swoon Thursday top ten Tuesdays, worst book Wednesdays etc....
(My personal meme is Cover Vs Cover which is hosted each Sunday on my blog) see: http://editorsarticle.blogspot.ca/2012/12/cvc-5-maelstrom-vs-leviat...
I have also gotten lots of views due to memes. A while ago I was doing a CVC on one of my favorite authors that I've email-talked to in the past. I wanted to notify him that I was doing a CVC with one of his covers. I quickly realized that email would be too slow, and most likely evoke a untimely response. Instead I tweeted him all the information on my brand new CVC, and this was the result:
Zom-B needs YOUR vote in a covers war with Gordon Smith's Furnace! Mind you, I love the Furnace cover too!! :-) editorsarticle.blogspot.com/2012/12/cvc-3-…— Darren Shan (@darrenshan) December 9, 2012
A tweet to all his 14,000 followers! I was suuupper happy =)
I had Neil Gaiman retweet me, LOL - my claim to Twitter fame (how sad).
Yep memes are a decent way to get more views.
You also should be reading other people's blogs as well. The more you read and comment on them, the more they will read and comment on your blog!
Indeed! that works for me also!
In Terms of more followers there are follow for a follow forums on book blogs, basically if you follow another person, they'll follow you. BTW- whats your blog adress? I'll be your first forum follower!
The best way to get people to be interested in your blog is to take an interest in theirs. Comment, do follows and maybe even choose a couple of meme to take part in each week.
I have to try memes as well.
I've gotten lots of view by joining those multi blog contests.
