If this is you first year participating in Inklined's Teen Read Week Blog tour:Send me, Sarah Faulkner, an e-mail at sarah(dot)y(dot)faulkner(at)gmail(dot)com or leave a comment on this page that includes a link to your blog, a little bit about yourself and what you blog about, your e-mail, and any other information you feel is permanent. If you're hoping to do a vlog, as apposed to a blog post, I'd like to know that, too. I should (in theory) respond back to you in a few days. Once I have, sign up as described in the "I've done this before:" section below.
If you've done this before:Alright, here's what you do. Click here. This will take you to the Teen Read Week Sign-Ups. It's a Google Document that you should be able to edit. First, head to the registration section and enter all of the information it asks for. Then pick one or two of the red shaded time slots to post on. Put your blog's name in the time slot you have picked. Click the paint can in the top-bar and shade that field white. (If you don't know how to do that, that's okay. I'll do it for you.)
If you would like to review one of the Teen's Top Ten book nominations, scroll down to that section of the document and put your blog name in the box under the book you'd like to review.
Please don't delete any text from any other areas of the Google document.
Please tweet about this blog tour. You can use the hashtag #TRWTour and the URL http://goo.gl/05d5XB. I would also love for you to include the blog tour button in one of your blog pots, or put it in your sidebar.
Your Blog Tour Post:Your post needs to be something about YA books. It can be a book review, a recommendation, a tour of your library's Young Adult section, an author interview, a giveaway, a post about supporting authors, a post about websites that help you find books, such as Goodreads, seriously, pretty much anything goes.
DO NOT use ANY vulgar language or swear words in your post. Keep it totally family friendly.
You blog post needs to link to the next blog on the blog tour, link back to Inklined, and your post needs to include the blog tour button. Also, please state at the beginning of your post or in the title that this post is part of the blog tour.
At the beginning or end of your post, a short bio/blurb about your blog/channel is encouraged, though not required.
The posts need to be pre-written and scheduled to go live exactly for the time you signed up for, eastern daylight time.
Participation Outside of Your Post:Please at least go read and comment on the blog tour post before and after yours. Regular participation through-out the week is in encouraged. If you use twitter or have a facebook page, please mention the blog tour at least once the week of October 13-19. You can use the hashtag #TRWTour.
Also, is you have a blog, please leave the blog tour button live on the blog for the whole week of October 13-19.
I think that's it. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments or e-mails me at sarah(dot)y(dot)faulkner(at)gmail(dot)com.
