Book Blogging 101

Have you ever thought of starting a blog? Do you want to blog about all the books you read, but aren’t sure how to get started? I have two years of experience running a book blog and seven years of experience teaching college students about branding and marketing. Join me for this introduction to book blogging to learn how to get started in the world of book publicity! Space is limited so be sure to register below!


Join me at the Spencer Road Branch Library in St. Peters, MO on Monday, April 8 at 7pm! I’ll be presenting a step-by-step guide to creating your own book blog, including:

  • Branding/finding your niche

  • Which blog platforms to consider

  • How to get books before they’re published

  • How to contact publishers

  • Types of posts

  • Organizing your content

  • Marketing

At the end we’ll have time for a Q&A and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have about books or blogging! I can’t wait to see you all there.

New to Hasty Book List? A little about me…

I am a native Missouri girl, born and raised in Columbia and Jeff City. I went to Stephens College for undergrad and then the University of Missouri for my Masters and PhD in fashion history. I lived in Bloomington, IN for 7 years while I taught collegiate classes at Indiana University before my husband and I moved to Chicago for his career. Now we are back in Missouri and I’m teaching online courses for Indiana State University while also reading (a LOT) and reviewing each book on this site. I also do author interviews, book talks, and I host a virtual book club! I hope you all can make it to my first book talk at the Spencer Road Branch on March 7! See you all then!
