BookGoodies Site Philosophy

Posted on: May 29, 2013

Today at ArmchairBEA we are inviting you to talk about your blogging approach. Have you branched out into your community? Do you partner with other bloggers? Have you gone “pro” or tried generating some income through your blog? If you’re a long-term blogger, how has your online personality developed over the years?

Our blog is built on collaboration with other people. Authors, bloggers, reviewers working together to make a site that is beneficial for all. We aren’t specifically a “review blog” but are definitely a “book” blog. We have gone in the direction of allowing authors to post a variety of information about themselves to our blog so that readers can get to know them and their books.

We count on authors to share their information with us and now we are reaching out proactively to bloggers and reviewers to come to our community and post their reviews so their blogs can get exposure and so our readers can find them. We don’t charge for any of the content, we believe in community and sharing. Yes we have advertising available on our site, but that is over and above the free options.

Bookgoodies has the same opportunity for book bloggers and book reviewers. We want anyone that is looking for readers, that has good information to help readers discover new books, to be a part of our site. We are not territorial, we participate with other book promotion sites, like AwesomeGang.com and Author Marketing Club to help authors gain visibility to reach more potential readers. We create the Reading Room and the Review Matchmaker to help all parts of the book circle to connect and work together without having to dig through everything on the really big sites.

Tell us about things you’ve done to expand your blogging horizons.

BookGoodies was started to promote my books and those of my friends and it exploded from there. Through a series of podcasts we gained immense insight into what authors wanted to be able to do and what our readers were looking for as well. I build my businesses based on the needs of the community. That is a vision that is shared by Karen Garcia and my daughter Liz Fogg that are an integral part of BookGoodies.

I really liked King Hereafter, where the sparse saga style suited the characters and the setting. It’s one of my favourite books. Click https://twitter.com/moooker1
