Morning guys! This week, I’d like to talk to you about what you want to see on Book Blog! Onviously, we all love talking about books – but what is it that we actually want to see on a Blog? Reviews, Cover Reveals, Guest Posts, Blog Tours.. Meme’s…
So I asked myself the questions, which content do I prefer to read on another blog and in return I’d love to read your thoughts!
I’m going step by step through all the typical post we see on a Blog and discuss teh value for me as a reader!
Obviously the main focus of every Book Blog. At least that is how I like to see it! I want to read your thoughts about a book1 But, I admit if a review is too lengthy I tempt to skip parts! But, what I truly need in a such a post is a link to the book and to the author! I actually hate when I see reviews with.not.a.single link! Also, I love ratings! It doesn’t matter if they are just numbers or images, but I want to know upfront how you liked it!
Question: What do want in a Review? Rating? Link? tell me!
Author Guest Posts & Interviews
I admit I prefer Guest Posts over Interviews, unless I am dying to ask a question! But, often those Guest Posts are just amazing and provide me with a deeper insight into a book. Often, I have picked up a book because of an Guest Post from an author!!
Question: Do you like Guest Post, do you see the value in them? How about Interviews?
Love love LOVE those!!! They are my favorite thing and often get me hooked on a book instantly! As much as I enjoy reading about an author, it’s the characters I’m going to spend time with. I also did quote a few character interviews and I LOVED them so much! My recent ones were with Kaidan (Sweet Evil) and Galen (Of Poseidon), but I also interviewed Derek and Lucas from the Shadow Falls series…
Question: Do you love Character Interviews as much as I do?
(obviously this giveaway is over… just an example image!)
There are tons of Blog Tours they combine all the good things about book blogging: Reviews, Interviews and Guest Posts. Often they give me more insight into a book I might have not picked up before. Maybe because I read a particular awesome post from an author or just followed the Tour and got excited along the way..
Question: How do you feel about Blog Tours? Love to read them, love to participate? Why?
I love and adore meme’s! My favorite one is Waiting on Wednesday mainly because I find so many awesome books each week! But, we only participate in 2 – WoW and IMM!
Question: Do you like meme’s, in how many do you participate?
Here, I am torn. While I do LOVE covers especially when they are pretty, I sometimes get tired when I see one cover on 10 blogs I follow.. I try to incorporate those Reveals into other posts but I very rarely do them as a post on their own.
Question: Do you participate in Cover Reveals? aHow you like those posts?
Discussion Posts & Read Alongs
I love discussion posts like this one! I love talking about stuff and talking about books! However I realized that discussion posts mainly work on weekends and not so good in the week. Why? Read A longs are amazing and I LOVE discussing books! I just love this!
Question: How about you? Do you like Discussion posts and Read Alongs?
Woot! those are a lot of different posts!!! And, I realized I have much more to say about each post type, so I decided to catch each section up in a following Discussed! Posts.
But, please I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!!
Which types of posts do you like most and why? Which ones do you resent? 🙂 Why?
Much Love and HAppy Saturday!
