BBAW 2011: Day 5


The world of blogging is continually changing.
Share 3 things you are essential
tried and true practices
for every blogger
and 1-3 new trends or tools
you’ve adapted recently or would like to in the future.

Ouch, already last day!!, so it means also last day to enter my giveaway, with 2 great books!

Tried and true practices

My big thing has been to try to interact as much as possible through:

  • comments, added to other blogs, with link to my own reviews, and of course answering every comment I receive
  • memes, and very recently creating even my own meme: “I love France
  • tours
  • challenges
  • giveaways

1-3 new trends or tools

I have been using:

  1. twitter and facebook, by synchronizing automatically my posts from
  2. goodreads – posting part of my reviews on goodreads with link to the whole review – though I’m going to truncate my reviews more to have more people go to read the whole thing on my blog
  3. google docs to create forms for giveaways – so convenient!

I intend to:

  1. get better organized and write my posts at least 1 day ahead, so that I can post them as early as possible on the day they should be up. I’ve read most traffic is in the morning, so I definitely want to work on that!
  2. after my 1st blogiversary, coming up soon!, investigate on how to get a few $ thanks to my blog
  3. ask more questions and tips to the blogging community, and here is my first one: what  tools and practices would you recommend me to use to make a bit of money through my book blog? All suggestions are welcome, as long as you’ve been using them yourselves successfully.
  4. organize more giveaways

  1. I don’t make any money through my blog, so I’m the wrong person to ask! I often don’t like too much linking in comments, but I appreciate how you add a link to your review if we’ve reviewed the same book. It helps me keep up!


  2. I haven’t worried about earning anything from my blog but I am an affiliate with and It’s not a lot of money but I have made a few dollars that I then spend on more books 🙂
