BBAW 2011: Blogging

Today, we're talking about how we blog on the final day of BBAW 2011 (*tear*). Here are my 3 tips for awesome blogging.

  1. Network!: Before book blogging, I had never done anything with Twitter. I didn't really get it. Shortly after I started book blogging, I started a Twitter account. Truth be told, I didn't plan to use it right away; I just wanted to register my name so it would match with my blog name. I soon got sucked in though. Other bloggers, authors and publishers are at your fingertips with Twitter!
  2. Engage!: Don't be shy. Reach out to your fellow bloggers! Connect!
  3. Write from the heart: If you feel strongly about something, you'll be more likely to engage your readers.
How do you blog?


  1. Twitter is definitely a great way to keep in touch and form bonds with other book bloggers away from our actual sites! It feels much more personal to me, and it's not uncommon for me to find new bloggers simply by interacting with them on Twitter.

  2. I am shy, which is why I struggle with Twitter! I'm working on it, though, and have gotten some great advice and encouragement this week.

  3. twitter is just a screwed up anagram of connect.


Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
