Want To Become A Famous Blogger?
Go to Book Expo America and the Book Bloggers Convention!
You will learn so much! Perhaps you will become a famous blogger!
It’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week!
The first topic is:
While the awards are a fun part of BBAW, they can never accurately represent the depth and breadth of diversity in the book blogging community. Today you are encouraged to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique experience for you. They can be your mentors, a blogger that encouraged you to try a different kind of book, opened your eyes to a new issue, made you laugh when you needed it, or left the first comment you ever got on your blog. Stay positive and give back to the people who make the community work for you!
I really love the blogging community.
I started my blog New Jersey Memories in 2009.
I started longing for a place to discuss books and writing, and that is when I started The Literary Lioness.
It never even occurred to me that I would receive free books from authors within a month of starting this blog!
I had no idea that there were so many book blogs out there. It is fun participating in memes and blog hops.
I’ve only had good experiences in dealing with other book bloggers. Other bloggers are great. They have been so kind to me.
If it wasn’t for this blog, I would never have gone to BookExpo America and The Book Bloggers Convention in May.
Granted, I was totally intimidated and overwhelmed when I was there.
My shyness — a problem I thought I had beaten — was back in full force.
However, I really tried to get to know the other book bloggers when I was there and next year I will know what I am doing!
There was a very good post about The 7 Secrets of Running a Wildly Popular Blog on Copyblogger, which is a very successful blog.
My favorite part of that post is to “Be Yourself” which I think is excellent advice.
Study other blogs, and see what makes them successful.
But, ultimately, make sure your own blog is uniquely YOURS.
Make sure to try to write in your own special voice. Don’t pretend to be someone that you are not.
Use photos or memes or gifs to break up the wall of text.
Perhaps one day you will be famous!
Here is a TEDx Talk about being successful as a blogger:
