BBAW 2011: Day 3

The world of book blogging has grown enormously
and sometimes it can be hard to find a place.
Share your tips for finding and keeping community
in book blogging
despite the hectic demands made on your time
and the overwhelming number of blogs out there.
If you’re struggling with finding a community,
share your concerns and explain what you’re looking for
–this is the week to connect!”

No need to expand on the tip of Facebook, twitter, Goodreads, etc, that everyone has already mentioned.

Someone though has said that they did not use Facebook for that,  too much work, or something like that. Actually, I have synchronized my accounts, so that each time I post here, a link automatically shows up on my Twitter and on my Facebook accounts.

Also, to combine 2 ways to make community, digitally and in person, you could create a Facebook page for book bloggers in your area, and then go to some events together. We have created such a page for book bloggers of the Chicagoland, and hopefully we will meet in person some time soon.

There are of course lots of ways pf using Goodreads, you can for instance join a Goodreads book club that focuses on your favorite genre.

My favorite way is by subscribiong to blogs thru google reader, and when I find an interesting post or a post on a book I have already read, I comment, and share the link to my post. I have had great interaction this way.

Of course memes are great for that as well, and that’s one reason why I created my own meme: ‘I love France‘, to which I invite you. I try to publish something new with it every Thursday. If you have any book review, movie review, recipe, etc, connected to French culture, please come and add your link.

  1. Great idea to create a Facebook page for the bloggers in your area! I haven’t come across many in mine, but if I do (or if I move to somewhere more heavily populated with book bloggers) I will definitely take your suggestion.


What do you think? Share your thoughts, and I will answer you. I will also visit your own blog
