PJV News: April 4th, 2011

For some this might be a repeat but I don't get a ton of traffic on the weekends and just wanted to give everyone a heads up on what is going down.

Book Blogger Directory

The book blogger directory launched yesterday with only  a few hiccups.

The directory is a comprehensive listing of book blogs, separated by genre and listed alphabetically. 

The directory is being launched to help with Google Page ranks, to help us increase our page ranks by promoting links on higher ranked blogs. If we are all together on one directory hopefully our page ranks will go up. Nothing guaranteed but having a listing of all of us bloggers together doesn't hurt, right??

So, go list your blog! And I'm also making a general call out for moderators. I need help to list these blogs, just in adult fiction genres alone 45 people submitted in a couple of hours. I will need help and moderators will get a featured listing in the directory and a few extra perks.

Run on over there and take a look, also it is a work in progress so constructive criticism is welcome...tweet me @parajunkee.


Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference

Book Bloggers & Publishers Online Conference

I will be attending the Book Blogger Confrerence, April 13 - 17th. I have attended these in the past and they are always full of very helpful information.
Informative panels include ones on General blogging and publishing. With helpful topics on:
  • Legal Issues regarding Book Bloggin
  • Copyright issues
  • Financial information
  • Audio Books
  • Publisher Blogs
  • Self-Publishing
  • PopUp Publishers
  • Reviewing Print vs. eBooks
  • Single vs. Multiple Reviewer Sites
  • Mission Statements
  • Promoting Your Site
  • and much much more
Then on top of those discussions there will also be panels on time management, handeling burn out, and Young Adult panels.

Within the coference there will be a forum set up and chat rooms where you can discuss the topics discussed and do a meet and greet with other bloggers and publishing industry professionals.

There will also be tons of giveaways and books and freebies just for signing up. This is a great place for newbie and seasoned bloggers to network and get a foot in the publishing door.

Thanks! I just filled out the form. I'm interested in the conference; am trying to decide if it would be do-able around my day job.

Woot, that sounds awesome! I submitted our Blog and Hope I did everything right .. OooOooo!

I'm still thinking about the Blogger conference, I guess my biggest concern will be the time difference. I'll have a closer look:)

Love the directory! Great idea!

I wish I could afford that conference, but at the moment, it looks like my finances are tighter than I thought I'd be and I'm going to have to miss out. Maybe next year. :(
