Hello readers! I enjoy finding new blogs, interacting, and sharing posts I enjoy but sometimes I’m not consistent, forget to share links with wrap up posts or life happens so I decide to sign up for Support Book Blogger challenge hosted by Krysta and Briana @Pages Unbound. It was a brilliant idea with one task to do every month and opportunity to interact more. I haven’t seen this kind of challenge anywhere. Best thing is there are no rules and another thing is I have little confidence, I can do this challenge.
Here is the detail what’s the challenge and tasks for every month –
There are no real “rules” here. There are 12 ideas for the challenge, so one task to focus per month in 2022, but there is no obligation to do the tasks in order. Choose whichever option works best for you in any given month. Of course, you can also participate in this challenge if you are not a blogger but have another platform. Just replace “write a blog post” with “make a video” or “create an Instagram post” or whatever works for you.

1. FIND 10 BOOK BLOGGERS YOU’VE ENJOYED READING IN THE PAST AND GIVE THEM A SHOUT OUT
2. FIND 10 NEW-TO-YOU BOOK BLOGGERS TO FOLLO
3. LEAVE COMMENTS ON 10 BOOK BLOGS
4. WRITE A POST SUPPORTING BOOK BLOGGERS
Ideas include: A round-up of blog links you enjoyed reading in the past week or month / A post about why you enjoy reading book blogs in general / A post about how other people can support book blogs / A list of bloggers with affiliate links or ko-fi accounts that people can support
5. SHARE 10 BLOG POSTS TO SOCIAL MEDIA
6. RESPOND TO 5 COMMENTS OTHER PEOPLE HAVE LEFT ON A BLOG
Instead of leaving a comment replying to the blog posts, try starting a discussion by replying to a comment someone else has left on another blog.
7. WRITE A POST ABOUT BOOKS YOU’VE READ BECAUSE OF OTHER BLOGGERS
Your list can be specific (I read X book because Y blogger recommended it), or it can be more general (I read these books because they seem popular with bloggers in general).
8. FOLLOW 5 NEW BOOK BLOGGERS (LESS THAN 1 YEAR OLD)
Optional: write a post, Twitter thread, etc. sharing their URLs with others.
9. WRITE A GUEST POST FOR A BLOG OR FEATURE A GUEST POST ON YOUR BLOG
Guests posts seem to have declined in popularity on book blogs in the past couple years, but they can be a fun way to increase your reach and introduce readers to new bloggers.
10. READ 10 BLOG POSTS AND “LIKE” THEM
This is the simplest way to support book blogs — read them! — but sometimes we get busy, and this falls by the wayside. So take the time to read 10 posts and leave a “like” is possible. Bonus: comment on them, as well.
11. LINK TO OTHER BOOK BLOGS IN FIVE OF YOUR OWN POSTS
Ideas include: Creating a round-up of interesting links from other blogs / Writing a discussion post inspired by someone else’s and linking back / Linking to other bloggers’ reviews at the end of your reviews / Linking to another blogger’s post in a discussion post to support a point / Including quotes from other bloggers and linking back to them in one of your posts
12. SHARE 10 MORE BLOG POSTS TO SOCIAL MEDIA
Repetitive? Maybe. But bloggers love when other people share their posts, and they get more traffic!
