The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
I originally saw this on Tessa Talks Books, a really good book blog you should check out!
How many posts do you schedule for your blog on a weekly basis?
I write on the weekends when I’m not working and schedule reviews for Mon/Tues/Thurs and Nancy Drew book reviews on Friday, which sometimes aren’t written until Wednesday. I generally write every other weekend and schedule up to 15 book or audio book reviews for the upcoming weeks. I do WWW Wednesday because that’s one of my days off and every other blog hop seems to be on days that I’m working. I sometimes post twice a day, but it’s usually early in the morning before I go to work and then right before dinner, after I get home from work, to make sure Word Press didn’t screw up when sending to Social Media outlets. I find 2 times out of 10 the posts are screwed up so I have time to fix it. I also usually post one Kindle or AudioBook deal post on the weekend, so 6 days a week total. On my old blog, during the holiday sales, I’d post up to 10-15 times a day, and never had a day off. That’s just cray-cray.
I personally get turned off by the blogs that post multiple times a day, sometimes posting one right after another. I don’t care what the content is, it starts to get kind of spammy and I usually delete them all, even though they may have good content inside. Usually though, it’s a lot of sponsored content, which is just another ad to me and I’m not interested in another ad, I get enough of those in my inbox. Those sorts of blogs don’t hold my interest, although they probably generate a fair amount of revenue given how often they post.
I can’t say that I’ll participate every week because of my work schedule, but I like some of the upcoming questions, so maybe this will become a regular part of the blog. What do you think?
