Blog Hopping in June

It’s been a personal goal of mine since starting Betwined Reads not only to share and record the books I read or my personal writing progress, but also to connect with other bloggers. My mission is to discover more up-and-coming bloggers who are making things that inspire me or simply just make me happy, whether they be specifically bookish or innovative in how they blog.

As I’m finally happy with the direction my blog is going and in my own personal blogging style, I’ve decided blog hopping might help me better put myself out there for others to discover. I also think I will become a better blogger by becoming a better blog reader, in the way that good writers must also be good readers.

Since I’ve found I’m more successful at completing goals when I have established metrics for success, I have established some challenges for tracking my progress as I blog hop this June. In case anyone else decided they might want to embark on a similar journey with me, I’ve also decided to share the specific challenges I’ve set for myself!

  1. Blog hop daily!
  2. Comment on at least five different blogs daily
  3. Shine a spotlight on the new blogs I’ve discovered and love in a weekly compilation post (primarily blogs with less than 100 followers)
  4. Write discussion posts each week for timely topic, citing others in the community who have inspired me by sharing their two cents

End Note

In the comments, let me know if you’re a regular blog hopper. Also, let me know if you would like to join me on this journey this June. As for me, I expect to try integrating blog hopping into my daily life this final week of May so that my first compilation and discussion posts will be on time next week.

This will be an exciting week on Betwined Reads! I have posted scheduled every day starting Tuesday with my book review of The Ocean at the End of the Lane. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for reading!

      Thanks! I’ll be sure to share what methods I go about doing it in addition to the blogs I discover. There’s so many ways to go about this at the moment, I’ve not stuck to just one ^_^

    Bloghopping has become a bit of a second nature to me – which is funny, now I think about it.
    I simply got in the habit of keeping track of all my notifications / comments, then checking out the blogs I follow and then start bloghopping. It’s a huge time investment, but it’s definitely worth it. I made some awesome friends, found some awesome blogs and.. well.. you really start feeling like you’re part of the community instead of just floating around in it, haha.

    Best of luck with your goals! :D
