Follow Friday: What are your New Year's Book Blogging Resolutions?
1. KEEP BLOGGING! First and foremost, consistent blogging is my goal for 2011. I've done a great job at this in 2010, and I want to be doing the same thing in December 2011.
2. Build a presence: It would be simple to just say that I want more followers...I definitely do. But I also want to be a larger part of the community, which encompasses more than just having lots of followers. I'd like to be a blog that a lot of different bloggers recognize. To achieve this, I want to:
-Participate in and lead discussions.
-Comment more frequently.
-Build a following for my What Books? and Manga Mondays features.
-Actively use Twitter.
-Participate in blog tours.
-Go to the effort of doing author interviews - it takes so long to think up questions.
-Do more guest posts.
What do you think is the best way to increase your blog's presence?
