[LET’S CHAT] What’s the Most Effective Social Media For Your Blog?

File_001 (16).png

So, there’s a constant message around the blogosphere that social media is a big must for your blog and promotion. I think that’s definitely a true statement.

Though you can definitely go without social media and still do well (trust me, I reached 100 blog followers in a short amount of time and wasn’t using Twitter or Instagram at the time), I have found that it’s a really awesome place to promote my posts.

Social media can definitely be time-consuming.

I mean, even waking up in the mornings, I usually check my e-mails and Bloglovin’ first, then Twitter, then the WordPress app, then Instagram, and then I end with Books Amino. Obviously, that takes a while, but I will say, it’s really fun to look through all my feeds or wake up to new comments, likes, and followers.

There are definitely people out there who are total social media wizards, who can fire off clever tweets five times a day, post three gorgeous pictures, organize an entire Pinterest board, interact on Faceboook, and then manage to answer all their blog comment. I am not one of those people. I’d say that my handling of social media is average, and I do prefer some social medias over others (Instagram over Twitter any day), but I try, and it’s really the thought that counts.

Twitter 

So, I consider this one to be the best way promote your posts! A large majority of book bloggers are on Twitter, and it’s probably the easiest since you can actually hook up your Twitter account to WordPress to promote your posts (which was  godsend when I figured out I could do this).

Personally, this isn’t even my favorite social media. I literally spend probably three minutes scrolling through my timeline, then I leave, which I’m sure is odd to some people who say they’re addicted to Twitter. I’m just not. But I’d recommend this one the most just because it’s not as hard as keeping up with other social medias, because most of them require work while you can fire off a Tweet in like, five seconds.

Instagram

Though I love Instagram with all my heart, it’s probably the worst way to promote your blog posts. To me, it feels like a total different entity, especially since bookstagrammers are now seriously considered as people to send ARCs to, even if they don’t have blogs, while Book Twitter is sort of for the “average Joe” if that makes sense.

Instagram doesn’t allow links in captions, only in the “Website” space for your bio, so that makes it harder for people to actually find your site since most people aren’t going to take the time to go from their newsfeed to your bio. Not to mention that even though I had people who had blogs who followed me on Instagram, they didn’t follow my actual blog, and vice versa; there are people whose Instagram accounts I followed, but not their blogs. So it’s all very disconnected. It’s a lot of work, and that’s probably why I quit last month, so there’s that.

But if you really want to put effort into it since it takes a lot of work and if you love pretty pictures of books like I do, feel free to use Instagram! But I just feel like it sucks promo wise, no matter how much I try. I do love looking at pretty pictures, though. I feel like just getting an account again just to follow my faves and like their pictures. I MISS YOU, INSTAGRAM.

Facebook

Honestly, I don’t know if it’s a good way to promote your posts or not. Personally, I don’t have an account at all, and never had. But, funnily enough, I get a pretty good amount of views from the site, and I’m guessing it’s because someone is cross-posting my stuff on there? Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t tell you when someone cross-posts your stuff somewhere else, so I have no idea who is doing it or what posts they’re advertising, but thank you Mysterious Facebook Poster. Your work is appreciated. Feel free to reveal your identity in the comments.

Though in my millenial (or Generation Z because I was born in the 2000s – I can’t keep up with these stupid generation things) mind, I feel like FB is totally outdated, I’m well aware that it might work for someone else, especially since it gives me a good amount of views.

File_002 (25).jpeg

Bloglovin’

I will say, this is a pretty great site to use to follow blogs, especially if you want to follow Blogger blogs or blogs that require you to sign up via e-mail, if you really hate it. I tend to only follow WordPress blogs and a couple blogs outside of that on the site, so I definitely need to work on branching out more.

You’ve probably heard about that whole controversy a couple months ago where people were saying that Bloglovin’ was stealing your views; here’s a post from Ashley @ Nose Graze about the whole thing. Personally, I didn’t care that much at the time because I don’t have too many followers in the first place, nor a lot a views on my posts. Also, I think I have a good amount of views on my posts on WordPress that I just really don’t care if I miss out on 6. But I’m sure there are some people out there who have a large amount of followers and have all their posts go viral on Bloglovin’ that it really bothers them. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those popular users.

I’ve actually started to get a lot of traction from Bloglovin’ the last couple of weeks, which is pretty awesome! My followers and interaction has grown a lot, so this one isn’t actually too bad!

Goodreads

(Does this count as social media? I’m counting it.)

So, if you’ve been living under a rock for a while, you’ve probably not heard of Goodreads, which I’d probably say is the biggest book-reviewing site out there. Mostly what people do on the site is review books, but you can also gain Friends, keep track of your reading, join groups, etc. 

I tried to re-start a Goodreads account a couple months ago, but it was just so much work, that I gave up (again). Since I was only on there for a couple of days, I can’t say if it’s good promotion or not, but you can definitely join groups dedicated to finding book bloggers and gaining more of a readership, which is always great! Personally, I feel like Goodreads is more of a way to advertise to publishers that you cross-post on other places, and I don’t necessarily think a large readership on there translates to blog readership, but someone probably knows more than me who actually uses the site!

File_006 (6).jpeg

Pinterest

I feel like this is another meh way of promoting posts. I mean, you can add your stuff to Pinterest, but unless you have a large amount of followers, I feel like it’ll get lost. I mean, if one of your pins gets extremely popular, that would be great because it gets the top search and gets spread a lot, and maybe people will go ahead and visit your blog? But, I feel like this is more for people who write a lot of “Help/Blogging Tips”-like posts and also have gorgeous pictures as graphic headers to draw people’s eyes to actually check it out.

I have a personal account that I basically haven’t used for pretty much a year (I should delete it, but I don’t really care enough to do it), and I actually made one for my blog for, like, a week, and even though I actually got two or so referrals (I don’t even know HOW), it just seemed pretty useless and no one repinned my stuff. I did it for only a couple of weeks, though, so I’m not a good resource. I’m impatient; don’t blame me.

File_007 (5).jpeg

Books Amino

You’ve probably never heard of this app before in your life, but I absolutely love it! I’d say this app is sort of like blogging-lite; you ask questions, do fun quizzes, create polls, post your writing, write discussion posts, review books, etc. And it’s very easy to link other posts and web pages and insert pictures and format things.

I used to do full-blown posts on the site, but after I started blogging, I’ve basically just linked to my posts, which does well for me. Unfortunately, since Books Amino isn’t as big as Twitter and Instagram, WordPress doesn’t calculate their views, so I can’t find out how many views I’m getting from there, but people comment on the app, so that means people there are obviously reading! I actually have found some other book bloggers on the site, not to mention that I have over one thousand followers on there, so it’s sort of my biggest platform.

And, that’s it!

I think I covered a lot of the social media platforms that can correlate with blogging, though I feel like I might be missing out on one or two because there are JUST SO MANY. But I tried as hard as I could to talk about all my experiences with all of them and impart some of my ~wisdom~.

Separately, this is the last time I’m going to promote Project Big Blogger, Little Blogger! I’m so surprised from the response I’ve already received (I thought for sure this would flop and I’d only have, like, two responses)! I’ll be closing the link tomorrow morning and sending out e-mails this week, so don’t miss your window of opportunity if you want to hop in!

  1. I think Twitter is the one of the best for promoting your blog posts. I’m not too in addicted with it either, and don’t spend too much time on it, though it’s wonderful to interact with blogger friends on there! Instagram is something I never ventured into it because I suck at photography! I used to use Pinterest to promote my blog but I stopped when I realised it was getting me nowhere.Facebook has always just been a territory I do not want to go in…just because? I use Bloglovin’ from time to time and it’s great to get your blog known. I think my blog helps promote my GoodReads instead of the other way round. I LOVE Goodreads. I think twitter is the best for promoting, but I find Goodreads the most enjoyable.

    1. Yep, I agree! I get some shares and likes on Twitter, and I also share other stuff on there, so it’s nice! Yeah, I started bookstagram once and quit because of my sucky pictures, but they’ve definitely improved since then! Yeah, that’s basically what happened with Pinterest! It wasn’t getting me anywhere, so I left! Yeah, I see how that works! I rarely found blogs through Goodreads when I was on it, so it’s definitely not too effective. I’d say the same about Twitter being best for promotion, and Instagram is probably my most enjoyable!

  2. I loved this post!!! Twitter is far and away my favorite social media. I only get an extra ~ 5 clicks per post there (I think I have a LOT of ghost followers) but I enjoy talking to everyone and doing Twitter chats and stuff. Plus I think I’ve gained more blog FOLLOWERS because if it just not so much views (I Know that’s weird)

    My goodreads has grown recently but that doesn’t really translate into more blog followers, and I think the 2 are pretty separate except for my link to my blog at the end of reviews.

    I can’t use insta or Pinterest because I’m not artistic and Pinterest just plain confuses me. I have a Bloglovin but I’ve been letting it rot and sort of do it’s own thing.

    I’ve never heard of Book Amino but I’ll check it out!!

    1. Haha, same, I probably have a lot of ghost followers as well (though I do am gaining more book blogger Twitter followers, so there’s that)! I really want to participate in a Twitter chat, I have yet to! Ooh, that’s weird! I feel I’m growing in terms of both, and I don’t even know how, but I’ll continue doing it! 😂

      Yeah, that’s how I felt! My first GR account I had over 100+ friends, but only about six or seven of them would interact with me, which is why I quit.

      Pinterest definitely confused me! It’s really all about the graphics, and I just don’t care about them THAT much.

      You should! ❤ I love it!

  3. What an accurate post, Social Media is key nowdays when it comes to prommoting anything but when you’re starting out it’s a lot of work to figure out which really works for you. I use Twitter, Instagram and Goodreads and I have notice that I get more of a response with Twitter than the others. I’m still in the beginning of my learning curve when it comes to blogging so, we’ll see..

And I’m not patient, so I’m one to quit if I don’t get immediate results (even though that’s not how it should work). 😂 Yeah, I got the most response from Twitter and Bloglovin’ and those are the two I use the most! Don’t worry, you’ll definitely get there; it took me a while! 😄

  4. I use Twitter and Facebook to promote my blog. Although there is one post that I have that I’ve been heavily promoting recently nobody seems to care about. I love Goodreads for keeping track of my reading, but it’s not someplace where I think I would do well promoting my blog. I played with the Books Amino app after it was heavily promoted on BookTube and I didn’t really like it that much.

  5. I think Twitter is the best! Not only can you promote your posts, you can interact with other bloggers so much easier in a different atmosphere. Instagram…I tried with that one! But I’m rubbish at taking pictures, and people from my school started finding my blog’s insta so I had to abort ship and delete my account sadly! But during the time I had Instagram for my blog, it was nice to see more of bloggers, the photos they take and the places they’ve been. It was lovely! As for Facebook, I don’t even use Facebook personally! To me Facebook is kinda just…there?😕 Great post😄💞

  6. I ageee about Instagram, most of the time (and I do this sometimes too) people just scroll down the feed or click a hashtag and scroll and only like pictures. Often not reading the caption or going over to bios to click a link. I didn’t know you could hook up your Twitter account to WordPress. I probably still won’t do it only because my blogs Twitter used to be my personal Twitter and has about 5k followers so I didn’t want to start a new one. I don’t use Facebook either. I’ve actually never heard of book amino

  7. Great post! I think Twitter is such a great way to interact with other book bloggers, I do have one but I don’t use it nearly as much as I should. I just never think about going on it for some reason. I don’t really use other social media, I use Instagram to follow other people but I never actually post myself. I love book anime though, I actually haven’t been on it in a longtime because I’ve been so busy but I’m actually going to go and have a browse on it right now! 💖

  8. I think Twitter is one of the most effective but (to me anyway) it’s also the most intimidating! There’s so much out there!

  9. This is a really great post and an interesting topic that, as a relatively new blogger, I found helpful. I gave up on goodreads pretty early on for the same reasons you mentioned but I do like instagram. I don’t want to feel pressured to post a billion beautiful pictures a week or take a pic of every meal I eat but since I use to study photography, it’s been a fun excuse to get back into it :p Plus some of those bookstagramers out there have seriously amazing feeds! I keep meaning to try twitter and this post convinced me a little more 🙂 Apparently it’s a good tool for writers as well, because it forces you to say what you want in minimal words which for writers who sometimes write too much -guilty lol!- it can be useful. Thank you for writing this post, it was a really interesting read!

I don’t expect people to click the link to my blog but I enjoy interacting with all the book lovers on there.

After cutting out Instagram, though, it’s less bad, so that’s good? That took the longest to promote, which is funny, because I got about zero promo from it.

    XDD The story of my life. I really do NOT care about other social media except for Pinterest because my love is aesthetics.

      I agree! I got my first 100 followers and over 900+ views in my first month of blogging, and I had no social media promotion! I mean, my blog has grown A LOT since then, but I can’t really tell if it’s because of time or social media, though???

But personally I dont know how many of those followers actually click through the link and read my posts or follow. However, what I’ve found is that for me, at least Goodreads is pretty handy. I know you haven’t had the best experiences but I manage to stay away from the controversy pretty well and mainly use the site to track my reading. However, I do find that being able to link my T5W and Monthly Recommendation mosts in the groups helps to gain some more views.

  15. I agree with everything you said. While, on one hand, the best social media is going to be one you actually use, the reality is that you need to be on a platform that other people in your niche actually use. And the book community is on Twitter. And Instagram, but, as you said, you don’t get blog views from that. I’ve tried to make Pinterest work for my blog and still use it, but it’s hard when the rest of the book community is not using Pinterest. I do get some traffic from it, though.

    1. That’s definitely true! I think that’s how book blogging is different from other forms of blogging – I’ve seen other niche blogs that are able to thrive on lots of different accounts, while for book bloggers, it’s a bit harder to do that! Yeah, I definitely didn’t get too many views from Instagram, and I was surprised when I did, so that says a lot. 😂 And, yeah, that’s the main problem! I wouldn’t even know where to find other book lovers on Pinterest! And it was also really boring, tbh. 😬

  18. Yeah I agree with you, Twitter is definitely the most effective. Facebook… I mean, I use Buffer so I post there automatically, and it gets a couple views, but not many. Had I not set the page up when I first started blogging, I’d NEVER set one up now, I don’t think there’s a point- plus I never use Facebook personally, so it’s an extra special waste of time 😉 I think Goodreads can work sometimes, especially if you have your link in your reviews? I know I have clicked people’s links, but Idk if others do? And TOTALLY agree about Instagram. Ohhh, Instagram. Like, in theory I like it. Pretty pictures of books, yay! But… it is so time consuming! And I feel like I don’t get anything OUT of all the time I put IN. And I also don’t think I am very good at it, so there’s that 😂

    Bloglovin is a great tool, but I DO worry about the thing that Ashley talked about, and makes me quite mad. I have mine set up so that it goes directly to the person’s blog, not the Bloglovin version, but of course I certainly can’t tell other people how to set up theirs! Pinterest… I feel is mostly useless, I agree. I do it anyway, again because it’s super easy, but… probably not worth it. Books Amino sounds fun though, I will have to check that out!!

      IT IS TIME-CONSUMING. Even taking pretty pictures of books for my blog is time consuming (but less stressful).

      I use Bloglovin’ mainly to follow non-WP.com people. I usually scroll through my feed, and if I see a new post, I just go Google their blog. I rarely ever click through the post! I don’t know how other people use it though.

  21. While I’ve deactivated the majority of my social media (for mental health purposes), I still try to keep Facebook around because personally I’ve noticed I get a lot of my views from there- which is interesting to me since as you said, it’s pretty outdated especially amongst people of the millennial generation. And as much as I hated Twitter, I must admit it did help me get views when I still had it installed on my phone. I think social media promotion really depends on how you use the platform and how often you post. For example a blog about fashion could really benefit from an Instagram account. (Though I’ve noticed Instagram isn’t really for my blog.)

    Thanks for sharing! This was really interesting and made me reflect on the way I get my blog out there 🙂

    1. Yeah, it’s definitely interesting! I know bloggers who are adults who use Facebook for their blogs and get views from there, but since I’ve never used it before, I wasn’t going to add more stress. 😂 Yeah, Twitter definitely isn’t my fave, but I get a good amount of views from there, so I’ll keep it! And that’s true! I know fashion bloggers probably benefit much more from Instagram, just like business oriented blogs are more successful on Pinterest than book blogs! 😄

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting! 😄
