Book Blogger New Year's Challenge - January 12, 2014.

Book Blogger New Year's Challenge

12.  How do I plan on getting more followers this year.

I don't!  Well I kind of don't.  I'm not totally into stats and followers.  I mean I loooove followers, and I've made some very sweet friends.  However, the plans I utilize are not very assertive.  I sometimes ask for an optional follow on a contest and I sometimes participate in Parajunkee and Alison Can Read's Friday Follow meme.  I also have found a lot of blogs and followers via Twitter.

I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to contemplate getting more followers and raising stats and exposure.  The time I do have, I have to concentrate on writing reviews!

How about you?  What are your feelings and ideas on followers and getting more of them?

Book bloggers should totally get dibs on having a 25th hour in the day. There really is never enough time to get everything done. I like that you're motivated to focus on what's important as a book blogger and that is reading and reviewing books. :)

I totally agree. While I love followers and meeting new people, I'd rather spend my time reading and working on posts versus trying to up my follower count.

The numbers are definitely not my driving force either!

I don't have a plan either, as I'd rather spend my time blog-hopping and writing reviews. :)

While I would love more followers, what I really want are people who comment and interact with me- you don't get that just because you have thousands of followers. I've been really happy doing this challenge, but mostly because it's made me a better blogger friend. I'm back to commenting, back to tweeting, back to being part of our community. I want to do a better job on my end, and then see what happens. I'm learning that if I put in the time, then other bloggers will put some of their time back into me. And that's a hell of a lot better than getting 50+ followers by giving away books or $. I'd rather spend that money eating Dim Sum in New York, or buying lights for my faery wings, wouldn't you? ;)

@Lizzy-That is a great idea. Can you get on that? And I want it to be an hour where I don't have to go to work!

@Jess- I agree with you. It's a hard balance and I admire people who can do it well. It seems they're reading a ton of books, yet have time to write reviews and comment *everywhere!* Unfortunately, I can't do that. I have to remember why I got into blogging and that is to talk about books, so that's what I'm going to TRY to stick to.

@Melissa-Agreed. The books are! Plus the people : )

@Alexia-Guess we're just kind of fly by the seat of our pants kind of bloggers.

@Kate-Exactly, very astute. "...if I put in the time, then other bloggers will put some of their time back into me." I just wish I had more time!
