Book Blogger Hop - 13th to 19th November

 

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

Question

13th to 19th

 What is your favourite social media and why?

Answer

I’d probably say Instagram, it’s colourful and yes I totally admit to #bookstagram envy but its also a nice way to see books in the wild and I’ve seen books on posts that I have went on to check out.  Plus I’ve met some nice people on there.

I’m not an expert at posting and staging pics but I’ve tried to keep everything colourful and fun.  I only wish there was more natural light near my bookcases so I could show them off.

The negative thing about Instagram is the aforementioned envy plus I do wonder how many of the books with pretty covers are actually read.  Another thing that annoys me is people who follow me then a day later unfollow me hoping I have followed them and not noticed they have unfollowed me.  I have an app that tells me who follows/unfollows and gives me stats so I can tell who the culprits are.

Anyway if Instagram is your thing please follow me!

  2. There seems to be less negativity on IG, too. I haven't checked the follow/infollows on IG yet, but I check on Twitter every couple of months. The culprits on Twitter are usually self-pub authors. 😏

  3. I am terrible at taking pictures, but I used to enjoy Instagram more than I do now. When I first started following accounts, I felt there was more engagement, but now, not so much, just they like your comment. Goodreads is still my favorite, with all it's faults, because people I feel like I connect with other readers more.

    1. I just can’t get into Goodreads, I do use it but I probably don’t make the most of it. I love how you can pull your stats of it but you are right it does have faults.

  6. I don't like social media at all, to be honest and use it as little as possible!

    1. I wish I’d never signed up for Facebook that’s the one I dislike the most.

  7. Wow that’s an interesting app that tells you who is unfollowing.. I’ll look into it. I like to ask questions on Quora and see what’s up.

  8. I love Instagram too but have not been using it a whole lot. Like you - I don't think I can stage that well. Planning to post hasn't worked well nor has random posting. I love checking out the #bookstagram photos too.

    1. Staging is such an effort, I don’t have the patience for it!
