TGIF {20}

 TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. Each week she poses a question and everyone is invited to join in and share their answers :]

This week's question: 
Social Networking: Do you use Twitter or Facebook to promote your blog?  How has it benefited your book blogging experience? If not, how do you promote your blog? Share your twitter handle and/or Facebook link!

I'll admit it, I was a firm non-believer in Twitter before I started blogging. I was set on never having one because I thought it was just a fad, and, yeah, I didn't really understand it either. Needless to say, everyone everywhere said I needed a Twitter account for my blog so I set one up and started to learn. And now? I am a Twitter addict. It's incredibly useful for both friend-making and just plain getting your blog out there. If you don't have one yet, I highly advise getting one. My Twitter handle his @ARoomWithBooks if you want to follow me :]

As for Facebook? I have a personal one which I rarely use, but I haven't made one for my blog. I don't really care for FB anymore so I don't know if it'd be useful for my blog. If you guys think I need one, though, try to convince me in the comments.

That's actually all that I use. Is there anything else out there that would be helpful to me and my blog? Convince me of these things! :P


  1. I wish I used Twitter more often, but seeing how lots of people are saying it's helped them connect with others, I might have to invest a little more time in it.

  2. I use twitter for my blog too, but not facebook, like you. I have a personal FB account, but don't want my blog to be linked with that, especially since I'm a teacher and am friends with coworkers (and some are friends with students...).

  3. I agree about denying the functionality of Twitter! I never did it with my blog but in my personal life all my friends were begging me to get twitter and I didn’t realize the necessity of it. So glad I learned how to use it and that I already had the knowledge of how to use it once I started blogging! Great post!

  4. I started a twitter account for the readathon and then just recently picked up doing it again. I've learned a lot so far but I know that I don't use it to it's full potential.

  5. I have to say I was right there with you on the Twitter fad and now I am just getting my second one started. LOL!! Lord! New Twitter Follower @lilpocketbooks


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
