Let’s Get This Hop Started!!!!

Posted 1 October, 2010 by Danny in / 0 Comments

TGIF!!! Which of course means that it’s time for the BlogHop and the Follow Friday and a review of we did this week!

Let’s start with Jen’s Blog Hop.

She is so wonderful for hosting this event every week! Thanks so much Jen for all your work!!! This week Tina from Book Couture asks:

How do you spread the word about your blog?
(e.g. Social Networking sites,
Book Blog Directories, comments on other blogs…)

I wish Danny were answering this question because she is our marketing maven!!! We do it all! There are five of us, which helps spread the load, but we tweet, we have a Facebook page, we do memes, we are part of a book blog directory and we follow other bloggers. We also find that a few well timed contests will REALLY bring in the followers, although I would caution that give-aways only work if your blog has good content to offer.

Thanks, Tina and Jen, for the great question and the awesome hop!!!

Parajunkee is also running a Follow Friday meme that we love. This week she’s featuring Savannah from Books with Bite. This week’s question is based on her blog name:

I love books that have bitten me.

You know those books?

Ones that you can’t just read once,
but read over and over again?

Well, I have read several books like that
and that is how I got my name for my blog.

What books have bitten you??

Savannah, I SO hear you on this. Unlike many of my friends when I fall in love with a book, I’m happy to read it over and over and over again.

As a teen I did a yearly re-reading of every Stephen King book in my local library. Every time a Harry Potter movie comes out (WOOT for movie #7 coming out in a few short weeks!!!) I reread the series. And Twilight?? Well, let’s just say that I had to read that series a couple of times with in the first month that I got it because it bit me so hard.

Right now though, I’m rereading Beautiful Creatures in anticipation for Beautiful Darkness’s release in 11 FREAKING DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We love networking so much! So please stop by both Parajunky’s and S’s sites and see who else is out and about doing the book blog networking thing!

Finally, we’d love to take the opportunity to welcome all the new faces and the old ones too! *waves* Glad you are here and we hope you like it here at the Bewitched Bookworms.

To get an impression about us, this was what we were up to at the Bookworms last week:
  • We started a new meme, Notable Quotables, that will run here every Saturday. It’s fun and easy and we hope you’ll consider joining us in sharing a quote that you’ve read recently that you loved.
  • We got a peek into Danny’s bookshelf with this week’s In My Mailbox meme.
  • Heather launched a new feature here on Bewitched Bookworms, Heather Finally Reads with her review of the entire available Black Dagger Brotherhood Series. It’s an EPIC review so check it out and don’t forget to leave a comment with YOUR suggestion with what Heather should FINALLY read next.
  • Heather reviewed the super creepy and scary (to my mind) The Red Church by Scott Nicholson. She gave it a big 5 books (which is kind of a big deal if you know Heather), and although she says it didn’t scare her I guarantee it would have scared me!
  • Scott Nicholson himself showed up the very next day with his 90 days of Nightmares Blog Tour. He wrote an fascinating post about Indie publishing and e-books, a must read for anyone interested in e-books, and that’s not all. Scott Nicholson is giving away not one, not two but (if his e-book, The Red Church, hits the top 100) THREE KINDLES!!! You have to check it out!!!
  • We surpassed the 500 followers mark this week and launched an EPIC contest in order to celebrate! You must, must, must enter this puppy! We’re giving away 3 signed books, 1 signed excerpt/artwork, Bookthingy bags, bookmarks, necklaces and a PONY! Ok, not a pony, but seriously, the contest is HUGE!!!
  • Speaking of contests, we announced the winners of our hush, hush contest! Congratulations, again, to Danielle and Savannah!!
  • We were honored to be interviewed as the August winner of the ‘I Love Your Blog’ Award over at Black Nailed Reviews! Thank you again, Alisha, we had a lot of fun answering your questions!!
So, you can see, it was another fabulous week here So if please take a moment, check us out and enjoy.

Now go and get lost….in a book!
