Book Blogger Hop: January 20-26

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings Of A Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question is: Do you use social media to keep up with your favorite authors?

To be honest, no. I used to follow some authors on social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram, but there was much unnecessary drama on my feed that I removed my Twitter back in 2020 and started a new one. So, I Lost all my followers and following. I decided to not follow authors again on there, many seem to have left Twitter anyways.

Same goes for Instagram. When I got a new phone I lost my 2-factor authentication codes and I’m such an idiot to not save the back-up codes. So, I lost my Instagram after nearly 10 years and had to start fresh. I still haven’t found many authors back. Honestly, I don’t really care about their social media updates. I’m more interested in book updates and they are usually provided through other type of media or sites, so social media is not too necessary for that stuff.

What about you? Do you use social media to follow and keep up with authors?


  1. Apart from a couple of authors of MG books who I do chat to fairly often, most authors don’t really seem to use social media a great deal. As you say, it’s easier to get book news from other places
