I was a book blogger many years ago and was often asked how others could start their book blogs. If you’re either new to blogging or looking for a place to start, this is the place to be! It is essential to decide what the name of your book blog will be Book recommendations. Including a keyword that describes your blog, such as reading, books, fantasy, and writing, is a great idea. This doesn’t mean you must consist of it, but it can help get your creative juices going. Your blog is about what? Why did you start it?
You should use the same name across all platforms. Keep that in mind. To see if others have the same idea, do a Google search on the name(s). The most crucial step is deciding where your blog will be hosted. WordPress and Blogger are both excellent -free platforms to get started. There are many templates included which will make setting up your site accessible.
The majority of book blogs have the following pages: About you (if you don’t wish to use your real identity), Review Policy (containing your rating scale), and Blog (the main focus of your blog). These pages are essential for ensuring that your blog is easy-to-read, has clear images that aren’t too blurry, and is scaled to the web. Enjoy having fun and showcasing your personality. You can always modify it later. Happy Indulgence took 3-4 years to achieve this design.
Many book blogs include reviews that discuss what the authors thought about each book. Do you have a rating scale that you use for your book reviews? While most bloggers use a 1–5 rating scale, others use half stars (such as Happy Indulgence) and a rating of 10. Many bloggers use a 1-5 rating scale, but others may use half stars (like Happy Indulgence) or a rating out of 10.
Do you prefer to plan or go with the flow? You can do it weekly, every other week, or once a month, so long as it is compatible with your lifestyle. You must allow yourself the time to create, plan, and write blog posts. The more you post, the harder it will be to keep up. My first blog was a weekly post that I did 3-4 times per week. This was far too many for me to keep up with.
It is essential to allow time to plan and prepare for posts. Scheduling allows you to design and write content before posting it. You can always change your blog schedule later if it isn’t working out for you. This is your introduction to the world of book blogging! Tell us a little about yourself and how you became a reader. Also, tell us why you started this blog. It’s also a good idea for you to share what genres and books you enjoy and any other posts you expect to see.
After you’ve set up your blog, it’s time to share it with the world. To increase traffic to your blog and connect with other bloggers, it’s a brilliant idea to share it on social media. You can share your posts through Twitter or any other social media. Goodreads is a great place to add your blog URL since it already has a community of bookworms who love discovering new books!
