I think the future of book blogging has just began and it will continue to grow. It is already big and I love being apart of it because I have meet soo many people through this amazing process! Above is some tips I would tell future bloggers to do when they begin blogging! Today is the last day of Armchair BEA and it was an amazing process and I will do it again in the future!! I have learnt many new things about blogging during this process which was FUN!!

My experience with blogging was hard at first but then it began because I entered giveaways at first then another blogger helped me make buttons and gave me suggestions to improve my blog! I am happy at where my blog is at because I am proud of my blog and what blogging means to me which is all about your views about the books we love. I sometimes also had trouble finding publisher address but eventually you find them, you can also ask them on twitter because they are the publicists. These people are amazing!! <3 all of them!

If you have any other suggestion leave them in the comment box!



  1. Yes! I think it's important to have a blog you're proud of and have fun while doing it. :D

  2. I need to update my Goodreads profile. I prefer LibraryThing, but Goodreads is the one that became popular.

  3. Great list Amanda! I think # 1 and 11 are the most important! I didn't feel comfortable giving many tips, so I'm mostly asking for advice on mine :)

    Here is my "Ask the Expert" post!

    Have a great Friday!

  4. Great ideas - thanks for sharing them

  6. Oh wow!!! I love them all!! Taking notes too!! I'm international so I've never really approached a publisher before, I understand how the keep internationals on another kind of 'list' heheh so I don't think I've ever wanted to go head on and ask them... plus, I'm too shy...
    Can I say I LOVE this post? >.< :D ~runs away~
    This rocks! ~runs away again~
    I love love love loveeeeeeeeeeee it ~runs away~

    hehehe~evil laugh~ You'll have to get used to it, I tend to see ONLY the good in EVERYTHING!
    Here's my ABEA for today! You're welcome to stalk->

  7. Great suggestions, and so simple! It's been a fun week, my post is not so insightful today...but maybe I'll go back and edit... You've inspired me. :)

  8. Great suggestions!

    It's been nice getting to know you this week! Hope you've had a great week. :)

  9. Glad you're enjoying blogger life! Yes, all beginnings are difficult. Your suggestions are spot-on.

  10. Great tips! Thanks for sharing!


  11. You should be proud :)

    That's a great tip -- I think I came across it somewhere else during ABEA, to network with the publishers and publicists as well.

  12. It's so important to network and comment on other blogs!

    I agree that I also had a hard time when I first started blogging. I really didn't understand how to blog so I just kept it to myself. I feel like I've learned so much in the past year that blogging is indeed fun now!

    Great tips!

  13. I love that you tell ppl to join goodreads! I love it so much!

  14. Good advice! I love Goodreads to keep track of my massive TBR. Can't believe I didn't know it existed until a few months ago!

    Great post! Thanks for stopping by my Armchair BEA Ask the Experts post.

  15. Great post! I forgot Goodreads on my post. Librarything and such are good, too. :)

  16. Some great tips. Fun to meet another Canadian blogger! :)

  17. Blogging is a fun activity for most of the book bloggers out there and so, it would be no good to take it as a chore and people would know that right away!
