The Power Of Book Blogging

I received another book in the mail today. I received it because I am a book blogger.

Book blog is a form of blog that is gaining popularity in the internet. Book blogs usually contain book reviews and sometimes author interviews, author guest blog posts and book giveaways.

Book blogging is gaining popularity because authors are realizing the importance and value of online book reviews and promotion. Gone are the days when book lovers would browse in bookstores for books. Nowadays, many people buy books from the internet and they mainly rely on book reviews that can be found in the net. Not only that, promotion via the internet is accessible by anyone and can be viewed by everyone.

Most book bloggers write book reviews on books sent to them by authors, publicity companies or publishers. There is a common misconception that book blogging is all about free books. It isn’t. It is difficult for a blogger to maintain a book blog by solely relying on free books.

  3. Great post! I think it would be great if more teens started book blogging––especially teens who review more than just mainstream YA fiction which seems to dominate many book blogs.

    I agree that book blogging isn’t all about getting free books, but once you build up a fair sized active readership, it’s very easy to rely solely on review copies provided by publishers to fill up the schedule. And I think that is another great reason to book blog––you get to interact with publicists and authors and grow to understand the publishing world better.

    • Thanks!
      You have a point there! YA fiction books seems to be The Books nowadays.
      Yeah…. like right now, I’m relying solely on review copies provided by publishers and authors. 🙂 That’s my favorite part about book blogging. I love connecting with various authors and publishers.
