The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. It was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy@Coffee Addicted Writer. 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.
This week’s topic is:
Do you use social media to keep up with your favorite authors?
Sort of? I do have both an Instagram and a Twitter account that I initially set up so that I could follow authors. But I am not super good about actually following through. I am better with Instagram, although I seem to use that more for watching cat videos than seeing what my favorite authors are up to. Oh well.
Authors that I am really interested in, I try to follow on Goodreads and if they have them, through newsletters that they send to my email. I enjoy those far more that any social media. But they do tend to only come once a month or less often for some authors. But that is ok. I get it, they are busy people. As long as I know when the next book is coming out, I’m happy. I don’t necessarily need to know what they had for lunch today. Although I do love Kevin Hearne’s wildlife photos and his interesting drinks!
What about you? Do you
stalk, sorry, follow your favorite authors on social media?
