Platform Pick-Up: Goodreads pt. 2

We're not done with Goodreads yet...
Now that all of your accounts are linked together, you want to make sure to update all your profile information and be certain that all of your books are linking up correctly. If you have any problems with this, Twitter is packed with Goodreads Librarians. These friendly folks are super helpful in providing guidance and updating areas behind the scenes when needed.

Once your profile is filled out, you'll want to link up your blog or website feed. Really, this is a no-brainer. You've already spent the time creating a blog and creating content for it. Why wouldn't  you want to share that content with more of your readers and keep them updated on your latest projects.

Of course, this means updating your blog content on a semi-regular basis, but you were going to do that anyway, right.

Today's task is to link up your blog or website to your Goodreads account. As a bonus, write a post that encourages your blog readers to follow you on Goodreads, add your books to their shelve and join any discussion groups you are a part of.

  1. I've got my blog hooked to Goodreads and have gotten a few readers that way. I do love the ability to send friend requests to all your twitter followers using Goodreads. That's a great way to grow your Goodreads connections.

    But mostly I use Goodreads to keep track of everything I read.
