Top Five Bloggers for the Month
Each month, the RLF Gems post ranks in the top ten, but is not counted, in order to focus on guests. The winners are judged by page views. Congratulations to each one! There was a tie in fifth place.
1 Livia Quinn
2 Kate Hill
3 Susan V Vaughn
4 Colleen Myers
5 MJ Schiller, MS Kaye
Honorable mention: Jennifer A. Provost, Alice Orr
Top Chatters for the Month
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. To win, a guest must have five or more comments (not counting the guest author's). There can be up to three winners.
This month's winner's are:
1 and 2 Susan V Vaughn
3 M.J. Schiller
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 3.5M 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.
Each post is featured on the Romance Lives Forever Pinterest board within a few days after it goes live. http://www.pinterest.com/kayelleallen/romance-lives-forever-rlfblog/
