I would like to preface this blog with the following statement: This is not a post where I moan that no one is commenting on my blog, I am merely discussing the noticeable drop in ofBooks’ stats since I have been employed.
I am now in my third week of employment, any time I have had to comment on other people’s blogs, comment on twitter or just find new book blogs has been eaten away by working. Checking my stats every few days, I have noticed that my drop in book blogger outreach has really affected my viewing stats and comment levels.
Ignorantly, I must have just assumed that my visiting and interacting with fellow bloggers, or reduction there of it, wouldn’t affect anything, I would go along as usual. But, I think many of you are in the same boat as me, you’ve not got a lot of time, so really, unless someone is actively visiting you it is hard to find an hour or so where you can discover other book bloggers.
I’ve already decided, from discussion blogging schedules, that I will be planning all my blogs out at the weekend. With commenting, however, I am going to try to allocate 30 minutes each evening to make sure I go through my bloglovin’ feed and get visiting the blogs I follow.
