In celebration of my third blogoversary in 2017, I decided to start writing posts that summed up all of my knowledge that I’ve picked up from the blogosphere in all my days of blogging. I’ll talk about topics for both authors and reviewers including how to find reviewers, how to write a review, formatting your blog, and networking. Optimistically, I’ll be posting one a month for at least a year! I’ll also likely be expanding this as I get suggestions and ideas for new topics.
How to find the proper reviewers, contacting said reviewers, and the different types of reviews (including ARC, beta, alpha, and regular R&R).
Ways to read in order to make your reviewing easier, the general types of reviews, and writing and publishing your review.
How to design a cohesive blog and choose your blog name and theme (mainly Blogger specific).
A guide to some different sources of images, the uses of images in blog posts, and guidelines for citing images used in your content.
This guide goes through the basics of HTML including how to understand the language, images, links, text alterations, specialized code and helpful resources.
