Booktastic Link It Up Thursday #1

Booktastic Link It Up Thursday #LinkUp #Books


Welcome to the very first Booktastic Link It Up Thursday

Every Thursday I'll be hosting this link up here on the blog to connect book bloggers and hopefully discover some awesome new reads along the way. 

A few guidelines:


Please link up any posts you have, past or present, about books, reading, and literacy. This link party is all about sharing about books. Joining in is easy; just click “Add your link…” and copy/paste the URL of a blog post (not your homepage). Blog posts ONLY please. Other types of links will be deleted. 

Follow me on any social media of your choice (I'm JoLinsdell everywhere). Of course, I would love it if you subscribed to my newest posts ;)

If you would be kind to post a link back somewhere on your post or blog.


Why join the link up?


Linking up to parties and leaving comments on other posts is a proven way to increase traffic to your blog and grow your blog’s followers! 

Please grab the Booktastic Link It Up Thursday button and share it somewhere on your blog (sidebar, post, bottom, etc.) and please share about this party with any book-lovers you know.

 Come and join in Booktastic Link It Up Thursday at www.JoLinsdell.com (hosted by @jolinsdell) #LinkUp #Books #BookBloggers

Let's grow this party!

Click to tweet:


Everyone works hard on their posts and loves visits/comments/pins from others. Please visit AND comment on at least one other linked post if not more.

Now on to the party!

New at Bookish Blog Hops


As some of you already know, I run a Facebook group called Bookish Blog Hops over at https://www.facebook.com/groups/127759384464964/The main role of this group is for organising Bookish Blog Hops so we can all collaborate together sharing our love of books, and help drive traffic to our sites whilst also creating quality backlinks (which in turn will help our sites rank better in search engine algorithms). It's a fun way to network with other blog bloggers and support each other.

As there is often a gap between one blog hop and another, I decided to add some new features to the group starting from this month.

For the Authors in the group


As there are lots of authors in the group, I decided set up a thread where they can post for support/request hosting. This is to make sure we don't get posts in the group that might distract from our main purpose. I will do a post like this once a month.

If you are an author with a book to promote you may use ONLY the support thread to comment about your book, where bloggers can sign up to host you, etc...

The bloggers in the group then try to support these authors if and when they can by hosting them on their blogs/social media channels.

Just a way to make it easier for us all to support our little internet family.

For book bloggers


Everyone in the group is a book blogger and so I obviously wanted to give some space to help each other and so, I will also be doing weekly support threads for bloggers to give us all another way to support each other and increase traffic and comments on our blogs.

The Next Bookish Blog Hop


I'm going to be very busy over the next few months, and so decided to organise our next blog hop for the summer. This also gives us more time to get organised and will hopefully mean more people will be able to participate both as hosts, and by answering each question for the posts. My Bookish Summer will be a month long blog hop taking place from 1st-31st July 2018.

I already have a list of topics/questions for each day of the blog hop, and will be setting up the files soon.
