Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy for books.  This is my fiiiirrst week! yippie!

Book Blogger Hop

This weeks question is:

  "How do you spread the word about your blog (e.g. Social Networking Sites, Blog Book Directories, comments on other blogs...)"

  This is my first week doing the Blog Hop so HI EVERYONE!  *waves*

Ok so I just started blogging like uhhh....last month so I'm gonna go ahead and say that I still don't have a clue what I'm doing!  For example:  How do I get the Blog hop button to show up on my blog?  I iz confused!

I really love doing the Waiting on Wednesday meme and I'm subscribed to quite a few blogs so I try to comment on other peoples blogs as much as I can.
I do have a twitter account but, yeah, I don't really like Twitter LOL  I need a crash course in it or something because I am totally lame and don't understand it.

Also I get nervous about having other people see my blog. :-/

That is all.  I shall start hopping now hop hop hop

Edit: Thanks to Dutchie for telling me how to put the blog button in! \o/!

Hey Straylights, I just found you through Crazy For Books.

There's nothing wrong with not having a clue about what you're doing. It's really a learn as you go experience and you can pick a lot up if you get around to other blogs.

As for the banner just do the following;

*Select the html on CFB's blog and copy it
*Edit your post and you'll see two tabs on the top right of the writing window
*Select the html tab
*Paste in the code
*Then hit the compose tab and it should be there.

I can't stand Twitter so you're not the only one. I have an account also, but I've just set it up so the feed goes straight to my Twitter account and I don't bother logging in... Soooo lazy....

Anyway, good luck with your blog and I'm sure you'll learn plenty as you go just give yourself some time.

Happy HOP! I was exactly the same when I first started and I think you're doing great. Something that's really helped me is don't be afraid to ask questions. There are so many things I don't understand and so anytime I have a question I hadd it to the meme I'm taking part of and people help :) It's been a complete life saver.

The easiest way I do to get the HOP icon into my post is

1.I right click on the icon and save it onto my computer.
2. Then when I so a new post, I click on the button to insert an image, pick the HOP icon and it places it in my post. I can then decide how big I want it and where to place it.

Hope that helps and see you around :)I'm an old follower.

Come HOP by my blog and visit

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm an old follower of yours but I wanted to stop by and say hi:) Twitter can be really overwhelming, but once you get it figured out, it's pretty addicting. I have to physically tear myself away from it sometimes. You've got a great start to your blog, I look forward to seeing more from you!

I'm stopping by your blog on the Blog Hop and for Follow Friday. I hope you have a beautiful weekend and get lots of reading done. :)

Heather said...

I love Waiting on Wednesday too... I learn about so many books I never even knew existed. Sometimes I wonder how the heck people even found out about them!

I am still struggling through making my blog all "snazzy" like some of these around here... it's very trial and error for me!

Check out my Blog Hop, Follow Friday and Giveaway!

Hi hi! I know I already stopped by for the hop, but I just wanted to let you know I gave you the Versatile Blogger award from my blog! (I tried searching to see if your blog was not excepting awards, but I don't -think- I saw anything so... ) Stop by and pick up your award! <3

Hi there!

I stopped by as part of the Hop!

My wife is not a big Gaiman fan, either. She says the same things you do about his writing style and characters. I keep trying to get her to read Sandman, but she's reluctant.

Took me over 10 years, but I finally did finish American Gods. It was okay but you're not missing a lot.
