I get to be the first? Yippee! :) I'm already a follower of this lovely bloggity blog, and in my opinion a blog is successful if it fulfills its goal and purpose.
For example, I consider my much smaller and less followed blog to be successful because I still often get contacted by authors to review their books!

Lovely idea ... maybe next time you can include the Aussies ;)


I think a blog is successful if it entertains and/or provides information that the reader finds useful. Your blog certainly entertains me and give me a lot of great information that I find very useful when choosing my next book to read! My email is pennyseneca@gmail.com

Oh and I forgot to mention - I posted a link to this on my blog tonight! http://authorjess.blogspot.com/2012/06/whats-up-wednesday-summer-giveaways.html


For me, a blog has to offer something I enjoy and be entertaining or informative at the same time. And of course, contests never hurt!

In order for a blog to be successful, the blogger must be active in communicating with his/her followers and provide useful information about the subject (s)he are blogging about. I love the blogs that I follow because I can get a well-rounded book review and also be able to expand out of the genres that I normally read.

I think a successful blog allows the reader to join into the discussion, and makes the reader take on an active role, rather the passive role as a reader. And of course, frequent updates are a plus!

I think adding a lot of personality to a blog makes the difference.

To me a successful blog is one that has a little of everything . Your blog is not only eye catching and pleasing to look out it's filled with the info a reader needs to make choices as far as their reading goes. The posts are always informative. I love your blog and know it will continue to be successful due to your great input and time.

Thank you, Carol. I need to bring in a little more of the "everything," I think. I probably don't give enough personal reasons why I choose the books I do!


what makes a blog successful are the followers/friends/fans who come back every day to see what is going on!!!!

thank you for the giveaway!!!

I don't have a blog so don't know alot about them, but to me I love book blogs so I look for books that are new released, books that everyone is talking about! I would have never found so many of my favorite books if not for book blogs :) Thank you for the great giveaway!

Thanks for your thoughts on blogging, cyn and Tisha! I don't think I would have found so many good books to read without blogging, either!


I think what makes a blog successful is when the author of the blog feels like they have accomplished what they wanted. Maybe they are an author who wants to interact with readers or maybe they love books and they want to share that with people.

In my opinion, a successful blog should have interesting content, be well written and updated regularly.
