Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday ( October 1st)

Hey Guys! I so so so tired right now. Went to a themepark with my friends today, school holidays = HUGE line up!!! My feet are killing, killing me and than Dad got pizza and I feel so fat now >_< Oh well, school starting on Monday (eep!) so I going to blog blog blog this weekend! Anyway, blogger hop is hosted weekly by Jen @ Crazy for Books and Parajunkee @ Parajunkee's View. Please leave comment and a link if you're hopping by so I can return the favour. This week I'm trying to reach 400 (!!!!) followers SO for every follower I get this week they shall get one in return!

Blogger Q this week -
"How do you spread the word about your blog?(e.g. Social Networking sites, Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs...)"
I promote and spread the word through blog directories, twitter and goodreads. Blogger Hop is another great way to promote but make sure you also hop to other people's blogs or else that's not the right spirit. I against people doing self- promotion through comments on other people's blogs, I think that's just wrong. You're there to visit not to do self -marketing! Unless it's in a guest post etc.

Happy Hoppping!

  1. Hey Lisa,

    Just stopping by from the Hop. I totally agree with you about self-promotion via comments! I don't have a Twitter account but everyone seems to be mentioning it today, maybe I should join.

    I see your reading Matched, how are you finding it? I absolutely loved it.

    Uni starts back for me on Monday, so it's back to work for me as well, my two weeks went by so quick.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. Happy HOP! I like doing the weekly memes because it gives me that chance to go around the blogging neighborhood and say hello. I feel that you can't just sit back and expect people to visit you if you're not doing the same. I love coming by and seeing what people are up to and taking it from there. I think that's been the best way for people to get toknow me and inviting them to come visit when they're able to. Have fun this weekend!

    Come HOP by my blog and visit

  5. Hi, Just stopping by. I also agree with you, as a new participant its a bit disheartening to visit 50 blogs and get maybe 4 drop by in return. Still, I am finding some great new blogs!

  6. I actually really enjoy commenting on other people's blogs -- I'm not sure if I misunderstood your thoughts on it, but I love to meet new blogs and comment away on their reviews when something about it jumps out at me. If you mean those "drive-by" comments, though -- I'm definitely not a fan of those! I read the whole post and comment on it if it strikes me!

    Here's my Hop: Coffee and a Book Chick -- Blog Hop...

  8. See, I always feel that in memes and things with long link lists (such as the friday hop), I WANT people to link me back to their blog. It's easier for me to keep track of who I need to visit!!

    Plus, I have several blogs through blogger, and if I didn't link people back... they'd probably end up at the wrong blog, lol!

    Check out my Blog Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway!

  9. Just hoppin' on by! <3 I'm a new follower <3

    I try to tweet but end up failing. D: So I mostly just comment on other peoples' blogs -- not for the purpose of advertising, but rather to make new friends. If they choose to come back to my site, hey, that's great! If not, then I don't mind. :)

    My hop :3

  20. Hi Lisa! That is so awesome that you're almost to 400 followers! I just started this week and had 5 followers, but now I'm up to 27, so I'm really excited. If I can grow my blog by 21 every week, this blog will become phenomenal! I haven't heard of Matched before, I'll have to read your review when you finish it. Excited to be a new follower of yours, I'm looking forward to the things to come!

  21. WOW! 400 followers!? I have like, 40 IF that! I need to start using goodreads to promote my blog, and other sites as well. I don't know if I've ever actually promoted myself through a comment. I will leave a comment and add the URL, but does that count? Anyway! Thank you for stopping by! I am now following you. Your blog layout is gorgeous!
