BBAW – Community, Part II

It’s day 3 of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, and we’ve got a topic for today:

The world of book blogging has grown enormously and sometimes it can be hard to find a place. Share your tips for finding and keeping community in book blogging despite the hectic demands made on your time and the overwhelming number of blogs out there. If you’re struggling with finding a community, share your concerns and explain what you’re looking for–this is the week to connect!

I know the smart and efficient thing to do is to use an RSS reader, but I don’t wanna. Here’s why: I like actually visiting the blogs on my blogroll so I can have the full experience of visiting those blogs. I like to see the background and the colors and the design. I like to feel like I’m there.
So, usually the thing I do is visit each blog on my blogroll once a week. And once I’m at those other blogs, I’ll occasionally click on a blog on their blogroll to check it out.
And I’m trying to comment whenever I have something to say, instead of introverting about it and writing nothing.
And whenever someone comments on my blog, I pop over to their blog to check it out. I’ve discovered some great blogs that way.

  1. I try to comment on each blog I read with some degree of frequency, which requires me to open the site anyway. I use GR as a kind of overall organization scheme, and then when I'm ready to comment on each post, I open its page right from GR and comment. I find it's a nice balance. But, I totally understand wanting to actually see the blog itself!
