I follow a lot of blogs, and many of them have several hundred--or more!--followers. But some of my favorite blogs have a much, much smaller following. Like me, they have fewer than 100 regular readers, and lately I've been wondering, how can we change that? How can I help these bloggers, who create some wonderful content, connect with more readers? Sometimes, getting your name out there is hard!
And so, the idea for Small is Beautiful was born.
With this tag, small bloggers feature other small bloggers, and those they feature will feature yet more bloggers, and . . . well, you get the picture. If you are not featured, but would like to join in the fun, please do!
- Feature 3-5 blogs with fewer than 100 followers.
- Write 1-3 paragraphs about each blog, including information like what the blog is about, a brief bio of the blogger, and/or why you recommend their blog. Don't forget a link to their blog!
- Include an image for each blog, whether it's a blog button, profile photo, header, or simply a screenshot of the blog.
- Thank the blogger who featured you, and include a link to their blog. If you like, you can even include them as one of the blogs that you feature (especially if they joined the tag without having been featured by someone else).
- Include the tag image somewhere in your post.
The Book Hound | R.M. Lutz
On The Book Hound, you will find well-written, informative (and fun!) reviews of Christian and other clean speculative fiction, as well as miscellaneous posts on similar topics. I love reading R.M.'s reviews. They're well-structured and succinctly written, giving just enough detail without being long-winded. And she understands my flailing over The Auralia Thread series.
Flowers of Quiet Happiness | Kara
Kara also writes wonderful book reviews, and she reads a wide range of genres. She often posts other fun topics as well, like a "Jane Austen Would You Rather." Recently, I've especially enjoyed following her 30 Days of Books posts, which she's been interspersing on her blog over the past several weeks. The bright yellow flowers gracing the background of Flowers of Quiet Happiness lend a cheerful vibe to the blog, and Kara's words are always uplifting.
Some things that make Kara happy include bookshops, libraries, journals with empty pages, happy memories, comfortable silences, gerber daisies, unexpected compliments, and gooey chocolate chip cookies. In her own words: "Basically? I. Just. Love. Books."
The Jumping Bean | Wendy Greene
An aspiring writer, Wendy recently began publishing a story on Wattpad. She also enjoys reading, art, walking on beaches, and seeking adventures. Chocolate, of course, is a given, as are dragons. She began a BookTube channel back in May, so be sure to check that out, as well!
O Ye Scribes | Candice Williams
I am convinced that Candice is my long-lost sister, as the more I find out about her, the more I discover we have in common. A fellow small-town introvert, she likes the color green, chocolate, Emily Dickinson, and maple trees (sound familiar? Those are a few of my favorite things, as well!). She currently works at a library and is writing a steampunk novel.
Totally Graced | Grace Anne
A homeschooled teen from the southern U.S., Grace Anne is passionate about performing and writing. She also likes dancing, singing, reading, makeup, and photography. She believes that we were all created to create and that the world always needs a little bit more magic.
