|Romance Lives Forever|
Top Blogger Award
Last month, Romance Lives Forever had 30 posts in a 31 day month. Each month, the RLF Gems post ranks in the top ten, but is not counted, in order to focus on guests.
The Top Blogger for December was Liquid Silver Books. In addition, they are the top bloggers for the year. Their stats were up to three times higher than any other guest on the blog in its history. They win a year of free cover advertising on the blog. The top blogger for each month wins a month of free advertising. This month's winner would be Liquid Silver Books as well, but since they garnered the top spot for the year, I am extending the free month to Diane Saxon, who was in second place. Congratulations to all of you!

Romance Lives Forever features authors and new books. It has a blogger's FAQ page with a downloadable guide and optional interviews. Readers can follow via Google+, Networked Blogs, Linky Followers, email, an RSS feed, and there's a blog button readers and authors can grab. Authors can share previous books. The blog uses author or publisher names as tags on posts, and author Twitter handles in the titles. The site is broadcast over Triberr with a potential reach of over 1.2M readers via its Twitter-linked network. Twitter mentions are also gathered in several Paper.li ezines, giving the author additional opportunities for promotion. The Romance Lives Forever Paper.li ezine features guest authors on its front page every day.
