Up Close and (un)Conventional – Reviewing
Welcome to this week’s Up Close and (un)Conventional. This is where I discuss both things that have to do with reading and blogging, and things that just have to do with life in general. This week, I want to chat a little bit about reviewing. I review here on my blog, of course, that’s my main place when it comes to all things bookish. There are other places I send my reviews to as well, though, and I’m curious about how other bloggers go about this – that is – if you review anywhere else than on your blog.
I have the UBB plugin with the possibility to send my full or partial review to Goodreads as soon as it’s published here. I always make sure everything I do is published here on the blog first, due to copyright. Most of my reviews, I also publish on Amazon, in order to make sure the authors get some visibility over there as well. And for the longest time, I copy-pasted my reviews to Booklikes. When my reviews are published, I also link them directly (and with a plugin) to Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
Booklikes has been very quiet lately, though, and so I kind of haven’t felt like spending the time to copy-paste my reviews over there. Even if I have a lot of followers, I don’t really get a lot of feedback over there, either. Which brings me to the second part of this post – feedback we get on those pesky reviews we spend time on writing and publishing here, there and everywhere. I get most of my feedback right here, and also quite a bit on Goodreads. Funnily enough, I also get quite a few comments on my review links on Facebook – which can also start some great conversations.
How do you go about your reviewing? Do you systematically post your reviews somewhere else than your blog? Do you have as much fun with review interactions elsewhere?
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous Friday and happy reading 🙂
