Originally hosted by Melissa from i swim for oceans, Smash & Kt took her original inspiration, and made it their own, expanding it to more than just books. Let’s get personal (but respectfully so) and learn more about one another! Each week, a different question will be posted along with a place to link up your posts and visit other people’s responses. This meme is definitely meant to bring out conversation and meet new people. So, Let’s Talk!
How much time do you think you spend on blogging each week, including commenting
on other blogs, participating in events, Twitter/Facebook blog talk, etc? Do you
have a time management system that works well for you? We’d love to know!
I actually spend a lot of time blogging! And the worst (or best) part about it is that a lot of that blogging time takes place at work. Whoops….
After I get all my posts done, I usually spread the word on all my social media sites once I get work and then once I’m caught up on actual work, I start commenting on other people’s blogs. I like to spread the love because everyone wants comments 🙂 I think it’s a great way to get the word out about your own blog as well.
I spend a LOT of time on Twitter… looking at other people’s link, chatting with other bloggers, keeping up on the daily news – It’s actually the best way for me to stay connected and active! The ladies from the Selective Collective and I usually email every day too so we’re always chatting back and forth as well as working out logistics for the books we’re receiving/reading.
I don’t really used Facebook a lot – I post my reviews there, every once in a while start a discussion, like other people’s posts, and post pictures from any events I’ve been to, but really Twitter works best for me!
I have zero time management. Pretty much everything is me flying by the seat of my pants! I’ve tried to get organized but then I just fail at what I’ve scheduled, so really, it’s not worth it!
I also LOVE to go to events when I can. Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville is great for hosting author signings – in fact, I’m going to this gem tonight (if you’re going to be there, let me know!) so I like to go to those when I can.
AND I found out yesterday that Forever Young Adult has book club locations all over the country (and even outside the US)! There’s one in Chicago, but really, I’m not going from the suburbs to the city for a book club so I’m trying to get some people together to start up a branch out in the suburbs. If you’re interested, please send me an email! We’d start with the December book and probably meet sometime after the holidays, location undetermined at the moment. Hope to hear from you!
