This Weeks Question:
Do you post your reviews anywhere besides your blog?
Where else do you post reviews?
Yes, to Goodreads! I have posted my reviews to multiple sites before, but the only one I consistently post to these days is Goodreads. I’m familiar with it and I use it all the time anyway, so it’s the most convenient option for me. My one gripe? No half-star ratings! Books just don’t fit into one neat little box, and I use halves in my own rating system on the blog. Both Leafmarks and Booklikes have half-stars, so I don’t see why Goodreads can’t join in! (*cough* Sorry for the mini-rant!)
I’ve considered posting to Amazon again, but it all comes back to the rating system, and it’s light-years away from how I rate my books! Then when you add in the drama factor... to me, it's not worth it.
I always post my reviews on my blog first, though! I’ve read a few posts warning against duplicate content, and posting the same review to multiple sites can have a negative impact on page views and your SEO... When I did read those posts, half of the information went straight over my head and now I kind of wish I had paid a bit more attention!
