Welcome to another week of Tuesday Thingers! We always love to hear from regular participants as well as new people.
We read, and then we write reviews that we plan to share with our friends . . . and with all of cyberspace! :) A lot of us participate in meme's and link exchanges in order to help bring new visitors to our sites. That said, this Thinger was inspired by a few posts within Library Thing, where I have seen a lot of people asking how to share their reviews and giveaways. I thought that if people were talking within the groups, we might as well discuss it here too.
I've seen plenty of threads throughout Library Thing (and other places) asking about how bloggers share their reviews outside their normal readers, and a few threads dedicated to sharing reviews, like Arc Junkies: Two Pennies for Your Thoughts. There are also plenty of posts dedicated to sharing contests and giveaways, such as Arc Junkies: The All-New Blog Contests Thread, and Bloggers: Book Giveaways.
Today's question: Do you post links to your reviews? Here on Library Thing, or anywhere else? How else do you like to promote your site?
My Answer: I started blogging to catalogue the books I'm reading, and to share my thoughts with others. I quit my "day-job" in Corporate America in order to stay home with our baby, and blogging is one adult way I like to connect to the outside world - so thanks to all my bloggy buddies! :) (I also love to read great new books!)
I seem to be really behind on posting my reviews. I generally post them on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Library Thing, GoodReads and sometimes Christian Books. As far as links, I try to post links to my reviews in the Arc Junkies thread of LT, and on the Saturday reviews at Semicolon.
As far as giveaways, I like to post at Library Thing in the Arc Junkies group, ContestGirl, Online-Sweepstakes, and Twisted Branches.
Finally, I just started participating in a meme-type weekly posting that I call This Week in Books, it seems to be a great way to discover new blogs and read some great new reviews, as well as letting me support some other great bloggers!
Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!
