Follow Friday - Lessons Learned

Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Question: Share something you’ve learned about book blogging or just blogging in general in the last month.
I can't say this has been my most educational month blog-wise.  May/June I spent a lot of time gathering publisher contacts and sending out emails (previously I'd been pretty much a Netgalley girl). But July/August I've just been blogging and trying to do a good job of it.

One thing I've realized this month is that just because a post isn't getting comments doesn't mean it's not getting read. My most popular post this month is a "Sexism and Feminism in Geekery" post (I do these bi-weekly) that has zero comments but somehow people are still finding it and reading it quietly. It's from early June and continues to get traffic.  It's an interesting observation and encouraging since I don't get a ton of comments.

I've seen that too, I've had a couple reviews where I was like aw nobody's readin it but then I saw they were. Then I realized I wasn't always leaving comments either, even if I liked the review, so I try to do that now. :)

That's actually really awesome! At least you know it's being reading even if there aren't any comments. Sometimes I have a hard time comment on other peoples posts, I just don't have the right thing to say, so I don't say anything at all. :) happy Friday!

That's a good point! As a new blogger I'll have to remember that (so I don't get stressed over it)!
