My Answer: 

Start out by focusing on posting original content and reviews to your blog. It will take a while to gather a few loyal blog followers, so please be patient. Before you request to review a title from a major publisher, please make sure that you have at least a Google Rank of 1. Wait at least six months to a year before joining any sort of reviewer program.

  1. Three months into my book blogging experience and a year seems a long way to go. Though I don't want to go too far too fast. Thanks for the tips.

  2. Excellent advice :) I'm curious about the "Google Rank" feature though, where can I look into this?

    1. Billy - That's a brilliant advice. I'll keep that in mind. Thank you :)

      Claudia - I think if you try searching for a book on Google and your blog would be the first result than you'll be rank 1 on Google. That's a crazy guess, but I think that's close. :)

  3. I'm not sure what you mean by Google Rank but I definitely agree with the rest!

  4. Great advice especially about not joining any reviewer program right away.

    I don't know about the Google Rank either. Will be waiting for the explanation.

    THANKS, and have a great weekend.

    Happy Hopping!!
