Cross-Post Those Reviews! | Bloggiesta Mini Challenge

Posted March 19, 2017 by MC / 6 Comments

Categories: Bookish Thoughts

Hello there, everyone! I’m here with my very first Bloggiesta mini challenge! If you have somehow managed to miss me talking about Bloggiesta, you should check out bloggiesta.com and get involved!

Today I want to challenge all of you to cross-post your reviews!

A lot of us cross-post our reviews just to Goodreads or Amazon, and we pretty much stop there. But there are so many other websites you should use! Posting your reviews all over the Internet helps authors more than you know. We are all deeply absorbed in the book world, so it is easy for us to discover new books and authors. But most people only have online reviews to consider before they pick up a book. Cross-posting reviews gets all those authors we love so dearly the exposure they deserve – so I’m here to show you how to help!

I cross-post every review I write to seven different websites, plus my blog. Here they are:

**You can also post reviews on iBooks, but I can’t provide a link to that.

Some books by independent authors may not be available on all of these sites, but posting your reviews wherever you can is a HUGE help to authors. Trust me, they absolutely adore reviews!

So, I challenge you to cross-post your reviews! Pick a few of these websites (or all!) and get posting! Let me know how it goes! Good luck!

When it’s time to get cross-posting…..

…..blame it on the books.
