Top Bloggers May 2015 @Sabrina_York @mariannericeaut #RLFblog

RLF Gem Award 
Last month, Romance Lives Forever had 31 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 May was Sabrina York. She wins a month of free cover advertising on the blog. Our Top Blogger of the Year is publisher Liquid Silver Books, which won a year of free advertising.

New Award - Top Chatter

RLF Gem Chat Award 
Because the person who gets the most comments in a month is not always the person who gets the most page views per month, I instituted the Top Chatter Award. This is the award for the person who receives the most comments. It goes to the top three people in that category. To win, a guest must have five or more comments (not counting the guest author's).
1. Marianne Rice
2. Sabrina York
3. Sue Behon

Romance Lives Forever features authors and new books. It has a blogger's FAQ page with a downloadable guide and six 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 only guest authors, and the day's guest is on its front page every day.
New for 2015
Each post will be featured on the Romance Lives Forever Pinterest board within a few days after it goes live. https://www.pinterest.com/kayelleallen/romance-lives-forever-rlfblog/
