Evergreen Content and Book Bloggers | SEO Basics

Greetings gentlefriends to the first Reader Voracious guide of 2021 – all about evergreen content and book bloggers. The book blogging niche is a quirky one and it’s no secret that a lot of “tried and true SEO ‘musts'” just don’t work for us due to the nature of our readership and content. But that doesn’t mean we can’t tweak these tools for our niche.

It’s been so long since I’ve released a new guide into the world and let me tell you… I finally feel like myself again. This post and its follow-up coming next month have been in my drafts for literally months. I’ve worked on them off and on as time allowed, but the scope kept growing exponentially as I have a lot of Opinions…. because today I am here in defense of the book review. Let’s get into it!

All About StoryGraph – a better goodreads, finally!

It’s no secret that I hate Goodreads. The platform hasn’t seen any meaningful updates in several years, it is owned by my nemesis Amazon, and looks like it was designed in 2006. But until now there wasn’t a good alternative for tracking books, reviews, reading challenges, and stats that was all in one place. Until now.

When I found out about StoryGraph, I was intrigued. A clean and modern interface? Actually good recommendations? Statistics and charts already there for me?! StoryGraph sounded like a dream come true, and let me tell you the dream is now reality! In fact, I’m so excited about it that I needed to write this post to share the love and get you all started!

Paid WP vs. Self-Hosted | How I Went Self-Hosted | Proper Use of Headings | SEO for Book Bloggers

This series discusses my lessons learned and tips you can use (even on Free Wordpress!) to improve your blog.

Originally this was going to be part of the SEO for Book Bloggers post, but it wound up being such a large section that I decided to break it out into it’s own post.

How to Take & Access Notes in Audible

Hi friends! Many of you know that I am new to audiobooks but I am slowly falling in love with them. One of my biggest challenges has been taking notes while I consume them, and while I found that I could add bookmarks & notes on the app I could not for the life of me figure out how to access them! What use are my notes when I can’t find the things when it’s time to write my review?!

This quickie guide honestly came from an intense need on my part to be able to take and access notes on Audible so I can write my very overdue review for Gemina. I wasn’t able to find a source online and it took me playing around on the Desktop app to find my bookmarks… so I decided to put together a quick post on how to access them!
