Friday Book Blog Hop - October 1

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop  is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

This week’s question –

How do you spread the word about your blog?

We spread the word about our blog by visiting other blogs, participating in comments, talking to people and looking for those interested in the same kinds of books we are.  Gaining followers is slow but sure but there is no time limit and we aren't in any rush.  We'd rather have loyal followers (like you!) than people who are 'fly by nights'. 

Thanks for taking the time to visit The Paperback Princesses.  There are two of us running this blog.  We do lots of different things on our blog and try to post regularly.  We don't have any rhyme or reason to the posts we do except that we wish to share with others the information we find.  There is lots to check out so make sure you do a search under Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it, Friday Finds and Musing by Knitwits. 

One last thing, we are an award-free blog.  If you like what you see, please leave us comment love.  It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside plus you're spreading good karma and it will come back tenfold.  Honest. :D 


  1. Good job on nearing your 100 followers. :) I also started slow when I first blogged. Only maintain 2-3 followers, then I discovered the hops around the blogosphere. IT's been crazy! but lovin' all the support and the chance to meet other people.

    Became a follower through GFC. Dropping by to say have a great weekend!! :)

  4. Happy HOP! I really enjoy doing the weekly memes and it's been a great way to visit other bloggers and see what they've been up to. I try to visit everyone on the link list and so far it's been alot of fun. I hope in return people come visit me and they do :)

    Come HOP by my blog and visit

  5. Hello, new follower here! You have a very nice blog spot! Have a good weekend!

  6. Yeah, I'd much prefer readers who actually enjoy what I'm posting too... whenever I lose a follower I panic, "What did I do wrong? Where have I gone astray? Why? WHY??" and then it occurs to me, "Maybe they had just been following for the last giveaway...

    I still hate losing them though... I feel like I've failed in my postings somehow!

    Check out my Blog Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway!

  7. Hi,
    I'm stopping by your blog on the Blog Hop and for Follow Friday. I hope you have a beautiful weekend and get lots of reading done. :)

  8. Just hoppin' on by! <3

    I mostly "advertise" my blog by going to other blogs as well. I don't really feel as I'm advertising though. It feels more like I'm just making friends with really awesome people rather than networking.

    My hop :3
