Easy Ways To Support Your Favourite Book Blogs

Being a book blogger can take a lot of work. Buying books, reading books, reviewing books, posting about books on blogs and social media... book blogging is very time consuming. 

Unfortunately book bloggers are also often underappreciated. In most cases they don't get paid for the work they do and, even if they do, it's usually not much.

The good news is that it's super easy to show book bloggers your support.

How can you support book bloggers?

A Guide to Stanning Book Blogs // What Are Book Blogs, How & Why You Should Support Book Bloggers, & More is a great post on this subject that I highly recommend checking out if you get the time. 

Read their blog posts

This might seem obvious but reading their blog posts is a great way to support book bloggers.

Bloggers often feel like they're talking to themselves half the time and many get discouraged when they don't get a lot of traffic to their blogs. What's the point in putting in so much work if nobody is reading it? 

Comment on their blog posts

This is step 2 of the previous point. Yes, they might see that people are visiting their blog but they also want reassurance that their content is good. They thrive on feedback and welcome a discussion or further conversation about their content. 

Share their blog posts

Again this might seem obvious but when someone shares their blog posts, be it via social media or by linking to it in another blog post, trust me, it will make that bloggers day! 

Back-links and social shares play a huge role in the SEO of a blog and have an effect on DA score and Google ranking. 

Tell others about how great they are

This follows on from the previous point. Spread the word about how great they are and how much you love their content. This is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of any book blogger.  

Tell them you appreciate their work

Don't limit yourself to just telling others. Let them know how much you appreciate what they do too. Seriously, fan mail is the best mail ever!

Engage with them on social media

Reach out and engage with them on social media. Not only will you be helping them show up better in the algorithms but you'll also make them feel seen and heard. 

Help them earn 

Donate- A lot of book bloggers have donate options on their blogs. The money they receive is often used to purchase more books and/or improve their blog. Even a small amount is most appreciated.

Use affiliate links- It is common for book bloggers to use affiliate links in their posts. Amazon is one of the most widely used but there are plenty of others too. When you click on these links and make a purchase they earn a small percentage.
