Greetings everyone! I was working on next week’s Top Ten Tuesday post and noticed that Read What I Like now has over 1,ooo followers! YAY! It might seem like a small number compared to other blogs the same age as this one but I’m impressed and thrilled that so many want to hear what I think about the books I read. Especially since I don’t actively try to promote this blog and have long since given up on trying to respond to comments. I read them and appreciate them but have poor blogging skills… Anyway, that so many people found this blog on their own and have managed to stick around is great! Kudos to you, especially since I have been posting significantly less recently. I hope that is about to change though.
I’ve been toying with adding new feature posts to the blog. I do a weekly check-in post, participate in Top Ten Tuesday, and do a monthly wrap-up post. This seems like a great opportunity to see what content you all would like to see at Read What I Like. So please share in the comments your suggestions! Would you like more blog memes (like Top Ten Tuesday, suggest other ones you either participate in or follow), challenges, giveaways? Non-bookish posts, thoughts about reading in general, movie reviews? A monthly review of something Star Trek? The possibilities are endless, kinda…within reason… Or do you simply want me to get my act together and do a better job of responding to comments?
For the meanwhile, I do think a giveaway is in order for hitting 1,000 followers and I will think up something over the weekend. Probably a gift card to Amazon so that it can be open to international followers. I will also make following the blog a requirement for winning. Look for more details next week.
For now, thanks so much for making this hobby worthwhile! Please, leave your suggestions for a new blog feature below.
