As someone relatively new to book blogging, I'm grateful to Barb for letting me have a free copy of this fascinating analysis of her survey results. I feel it proves what a vital resource book bloggers can be to authors seeing to promote their work. Also, how it is only very simple things bloggers expect from authors wanting them to review their books: courtesy, respect and gratitude. I'm sure author's could learn a great deal from the survey results and, if taken on board, it would make their i ...more

I was surprised to receive a copy of Barb Drozdowich's new book, the Book Blogger Survey, because I had completely forgotten about taking part in the survey several months ago! She asked a range of insightful questions which over 500 of us book bloggers responded to and I found the gathered information to be fascinating. Admittedly I am a closet statistician! Drozdowich primarily analyses responses by bloggers' gender and nationality, by the genre of books they blog about, and by the length of t ...more

If authors and publishers aren’t aware how much book bloggers can help a book get noticed, then they should read this 2016 Book Blogger Survey. Barb Drozdowich has complied information from 502 bloggers who share why they love being book bloggers and reviewers. She asks these bloggers seemingly simple questions but the answers are thought provoking and informative.

The survey had 38 questions and on average took responders about 9 minutes to complete. What Drozdowich put together is a compilation

The Book Blogger is the result of a survey carried out in 2015. Over five hundred bloggers participated and the results are neatly compiled and indexed at the back of the book.

When I took part in this survey, I didn't expect to receive this book which came as a pleasant surprise.

This analysis is a representation of bloggers with various degrees of experience. Some have been in the blogger world longer than others and preferences vary. Some book genres are more popular than others. It's quite un

Ever wanted to know how book bloggers think? This book will tell you.

Barb herself admits there are issues with her survey and the results—some of the questions were unclear, and some of the respondents (of which I was one) didn't realise some of the questions allowed multiple answers. I also think some of the questions didn't add value, although I can still see why she asked them. No matter—now she knows how to improve the survey the next time she runs it.

But the real value of this book isn't

Lots of great information on book blogs and book bloggers. Diving into the survey results this book conducted shows you a lot of insight into the world of the book bloggers. I learned a lot about book blogs with this information. The biggest eye opener was that most book bloggers quite because of what I call bulling from authors. It makes me sad to see that people cannot share their honest opinon without being attacked.

Peace and Love,

An interesting look into the book blogger world. Honest responses from hundreds of book bloggers about their preferences and perspectives on the blogging world and review requests. This survey gives a really interesting peek behind the curtain to the changing attitudes and climate of the book blogging world.

Sometimes it is helpful to learn about others in your "field". So, I picked up this book. Barb surveyed over 500 book bloggers, covering the entire spectrum of almost anything you would
want to know.

What intrigued me the most were the responses to Barb's question about the level of commitment to blogging. This bothered me.

The overall purpose of my blog, in all honesty, was because it was required to be a part of blog tours.

I enjoy reading and spend approximately 60% of my time doing so.
