Book Blogger Confessions is a meme that allows book bloggers to discuss issues unique to what we encounter in the blogging world. Every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month we will post a question and invite you to answer, comment and discuss opinions and different views.
Please keep the dialogue courteous. No bashing!
If you would like to participate in this meme sign up below and please feel free to to grab the button to include in your post with a link to For What It's Worth Reviews or here at Midnyte Reader.
Question: Have you added or considered adding additional reviewers to your blog? Why or why not? If you have, please share how you found the right match when bringing new people to your established blog. Did you encounter any problems?
Answer: I would love to have another reviewer on my blog. Not only would it take some of the pressure off, but I would just love to be able to offer more to readers. This is why I will usually take a guest post or review as long as it is a good fit.
If I had another reviewer, we could also share books, go to signings and cons together and be bff's forever! Yeah, I'm a little lonely in my blogging bubble at times. I think it would be great to be able to brainstorm features and ideas. Also, for hosting duties on Challenges and events it would be helpful as well. I think having someone else involved would increase my excitement and productivity. What's the saying? Work shared is work halved? But as stated above, how would I find the right person? I think it would have to be someone I knew well already.
On that note, I'm happy to say that one of my friends who has done a guest post in the past and who I've been pestering to write reviews is going to be doing another kind of feature on the blog. So stay tuned for it, but in the meantime you can check out the new About Us page HERE!
On the flip side, I'm happy being solo as well. I can do what I want, when I want. If I'm not in the mood to blog, there isn't someone shaming me into it (except myself). I'm not constrained by a project if I don't feel like getting to it at that exact moment.
I've also heard of problems that some bloggers had with co-reviewers and I wouldn't want that headache. Also, what if I want to change the header and my co-blogger vetoes the idea? I guess you would need to determine the "terms of service" beforehand. Would that blogger have just as much say as you? Maybe if you started the blog together it would be, but maybe not if you brought them on in a specific capacity.
How about you? Do you have a co-blogger? Would you want one. What do you see as the pros and/or cons?
