I had another post planned for today but had to change my mind at the last moment. I didn’t have enough material for it and wanted to do it full justice as it’s something close to my heart so I will be posting it next Saturday. As for today’s post, I have decided to bring back my series on tips for book bloggers in a bigger and better way to help out the community I’m a part of. Please note that I will be talking about what has worked for me based on my experience, so if you don’t agree with me or have something to add, please let me know in the comments so everyone, including myself, can learn something new. With that little disclaimer aside, here are my personal tips to write a good book review post.
As I’ve mentioned in my September wrap-up post, the blog has hit 500 followers recently, for which I’m again deeply grateful. I couldn’t have done it without the support of this wonderful bookish community I’m proud to be a part of. As a thank you to all the wonderful people who support me, I wanted to do a blog post on any one aspect of book blogging that would be helpful for all book bloggers out there. I did a quick Twitter poll regarding this and the most wanted topic was how to grow your blog. While I was initially considering it, I don’t think I’m the best person to talk about this. I feel like there are other things I have better experience with and the first thing that popped into my mind was on how to maintain a balance between blogging and other things in life. I want to quickly mention that I will be tailoring my advice for book bloggers, but all bloggers who do it as a hobby can probably take away something from this. Also, if you find this to be helpful, please let me know in the comments if you want me to make this a recurring series, and if yes, what topics you’d like to see in the future. With that out of the way, let’s jump straight in!
