TGIF: Social Networking

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads! Each week she proposes a question to her readers.

This week's question:  

Social Networking: Do you use Twitter or Facebook to promote your blog?  How has it benefited your book blogging experience? If not, how do you promote your blog? Share your twitter handle and/or Facebook link!

I use Twitter to help promote my blog. I use it to share my reviews and giveaways and tell people what books I am currently reading. I also use it to "talk" to other bloggers. As a result of following some tweets and tweeting about the book signing for Incarnate by Jodi Meadows, I was able to meet some bloggers who where there too. Tweeting each other and becoming familiar through that medium helped eliminate some of my shyness when meeting new people.

By tweeting about my giveaways, it helps bring readers to my blog, but sometimes tweeting about them can seem like spam to my followers resulting in losing them as a follower. I try to limit those tweets and I ask for a retweet if possible.

I've found some bloggers and authors to write guest posts for my Love My Indie feature through Twitter. Sometimes it drums up some interest. Not so much lately.

I don't have a Facebook account for my blog and right now I don't plan to create one. I'm already on Goodreads, Random Buzzers, and Twitter - and that is all the social media I can handle right now.

If you want to follow me on Twitter, you can @ActinUpwb - that's Actin' Up with Books, not Actin' Up with Boys as @VTGrad2X likes to think!


  1. Hi, I love your blog decor. I just recently closed my face book account. the best promotion has been meme's for me.

  2. I don't use Twitter as much as I probably should - and now that I've heard about so many people connecting with favorite authors on there, I might have to get back on it a little more :-)

  3. I am just getting into Twitter but seem to be on it mostly to enter my giveaways! LOL! New Twitter Follower @lilpocketbooks

  4. I ALWAYS worry that me tweeting about my blog can be spamish sometimes. That is probably the biggest downfall to twitter but I do love the fact that you are able to talk to other bloggers and book lovers!


Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment!
