It’s past midnight in Europe, where I live! It’s officially the launch day of my second novel, Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall, and to celebrate, I’ll be hosting my first Blog Party with the help and encouragement of Suzie Speaks! Thank you Suzie! I would never have been so daring without your example and support!
I have never hosted a Blog Party before. I have looked at at a few, like Suzie’s, and searched on the Internet and I’ve discovered it’s basically a spot for bloggers to share their work on the same day and check out the work of others.
So, visitors post links from their own blogs and interact with other visitors by checking and commenting on their blogs, too. It all takes place on the hosting blog, in this case Rereading Jane Eyre.
The result is that visitors reach an audience they might not normally reach, so traffic and interaction should increase in all participating blogs.
As I’m new to this, I’ll be following Suzie’s layout and rules.
I’ve decided to add a theme: Books
1. Choose your favourite post related to books. It could be a review, a reflection on writing, your experiences as a reader, any aspect of publishing. Anything related to books!
2. You may have more than one favourite post, so you can post up to three different links, but for maximum impact I would suggest that you wait a little while in between posting them rather than in one go.
3. Introduce yourself and your blog briefly and paste the link to your post in the comment section of this post.
4. Enjoy! Relax, pull up a chair, meet other bloggers! Find new blogs, comment on their posts, follow, reblog and share. Let them know that you met them here! This is a really useful way of discovering new blogs, particularly if you have only just joined the blogging world and when I have participated in similar things I have really enjoyed them!
You don’t have to follow me to participate, you don’t have to be an established blogger – you could have written just a single post – and feel free to invite your friends! You don’t have to be a writer. I will leave it open all weekend, so if you can’t join in now you can come back at any time over the next few days!
Feel free to share this post on all of your social media accounts too!
I’m looking forward to seeing ‘old’ blogging friends and meeting new ones 🙂
Have a wonderful time!
