I am looking for some HONEST, Straight forward feedback...
Tell me, What is wrong with my Meme and why is my participation so low?
I really want to get my meme up and going and get to know more about the Book Bloggers around me! HELP!!!
I wouldn't say your meme is a flop at all! You had six participants in the first week and three in the second. While that's certainly nowhere close to the numbers "In My Mailbox" or "Top Ten Tuesdays" can generate, it's a pretty good showing. My own meme often gets only one other participant per week--and that's when I'm lucky! =P
The reason I haven't joined your meme is that I'm just not drawn to survey-type memes. I don't even join the Friday hops because they require me to answer a personal question! But that's just because I'm unfriendly. ;-)
What I'd recommend is for you to combine your hop with the Crazy for Books hop in a "cross-over" post, and then encourage all other Crazy for Books participants to do the same. I'm not guaranteeing it will work, but it will be more visible that way. And who knows? Some other bloggers who hop your way and find the question fun might modify their own posts on the spot!
Good luck with this!
Thanks for the advice. I have been having my meme post right on top of my Crazy for books post... I will try combining them next week! Thanks!
Thank you SO much for the encouragement! I will keep it going then!
I just heard about it when you wrote in the forum. I am busy right now trying to get into my own groove before I can learn about memes and things, but I will come join it soon if I can.
I would love for you to join! Thanks!
I joined your MEME and I think it was really fun especially for new bloggers like me! Don't give up yet! I'm sure more will join as time goes on!
I saw that you joined! Thanks for the support! I love your answers too! Keep coming! I wont give up yet!
Don't forget to stop by my blog today and Enter my MEME!!! It starts at 9am and runs through Sunday!
Thanks everyone for your support!
You are being to hard on yourself, you have participants, it will take time, keep going. For me immediately I wouldn't have thought it was about books, that may be an issue. Some bloggers enjoy the personal posts and that is what I assumed.
