Bookish Blogging: Blogger Spotlight Features

Blogging

Bookish Blogging is a feature where I provide tips, suggestions, and other resources for blogging about books.  It’s similar to my Bookish Thoughts feature in that I will share my own thoughts about the topic and likely ramble.  But, it’s more aimed at helping other book bloggers instead of just chatting.


Blogger Spotlight Features

At one point during my blogging career, I went through a phase of wanting to be featured on other blogs. I thought if I could just sign up for every book blogger feature out there then everyone would know my blog and I’d be good to go. Of course, it doesn’t quite work that way. I do not know how much people actually pay attention to book blogger spotlights, and really even if it gets them to click on your link it doesn’t mean they’ll stick around.

That’s besides the point though. I did end up creating a small collection of book blogger spotlights, and today I’m going to share them with you. I’ll let you know which blog the spotlight is at, how to sign up for their feature, and what requirements might exist. If you see that I’ve missed any, feel free to let me know!
