Summer is coming up fast (it's practically here) , so we've decided to host a blog tour to kick off the season! But this isn't just any blog tour--we're going to be spending every Sunday of July and August promoting YA bloggers and their book blogs.
If you're interested, we only have 8 more spots available, so please read all of the information below CAREFULLY!
So, there are 9 Sundays in July/August total. We're going to be selecting 8 book bloggers (9, including ourselves!) to take part in our tour. Each blogger in the lineup will put up a post on their blog every Sunday throughout July and August. Each week, your post will be featuring another book blogger involved in the tour. (Your schedule will tell you which book bloggers to feature on which Sunday.) You could do an interview with the blogger, explain what you like about their blog, something fun or creative, a booktuber collaboration, etc. Whatever you want--it's up to you! All you have to do is make sure that post basically swags out the assigned blogger/book blog. In return, they'll do the same for you and your blog when it comes time for them to cover yours.
The way the rotation will work is that all 9 blogs will be featured each week. Your blog will be talked about on 8 other blogs at different points for 8 entire weeks. (For the 9th week, everyone will be doing a wrap-up post about their tour experience, otherwise you'd be swagging out YOUR blog for the 9th week, which makes no sense). The purpose of this tour is just to highlight new and different YA book bloggers and get to get the word out and learn about them and promote them, while having them do the same for you in return.
Every Sunday throughout July and August will be filled with interviews, discussions, shoutouts, and tons of other fun! This is going to be a super awesome tour that we're so excited for--and we launch on July 6th!
Okay, so what if you're interested in joining? What do you do?
We attached the lineup for our Summer 2014 Blogger Promo Tour below, and as you can see, we have limited spots left! If you're interested in getting one of the slots in our lineup, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us the following:
- Your name (first name is all we need!)
- Your blog's name
- Your blog's URL
- Your blog's Twitter (so we can add you to our Summer Blogger Promo Tour List!)
- Your email address (so other members of the lineup can contact you if need be)
- Why you want to take part in the Summer Blogger Promo Tour (basically, just promise us that you'll do your posts each week.)
If you do not include ALL of the above bullets in your email, you won't qualify to join the lineup. There are only 7 more spots left, so please hurry! IT IS FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE!
And what's really important is honesty. If you know (or suspect) that you won't be able to put up a post each Sunday from July 6th to August 31st, and/or you aren't willing to put in the time to look up the book blogs you have to feature and contact the bloggers to learn more about them and get to know them, please don't enter to join the lineup. This is going to be a fun summer event that helps promote everyone, and in order to do so, we all need to pull our own weight! It'll only be super awesome if everyone who's involved promises to contribute 100%. If you don't think you can do that, then this blogger tour isn't for you.
We will email you if you've been accepted into the lineup, and we'll include the banner for you to add to your blog, as well as your schedule and the official lineup once it's finalized. All questions you have and information you need will be answered and given to you in your acceptance email.
We hope that you all can spread the word and try and join us! It's going to be a great summer, everyone! :-)
