So recently, I wrote a post about why I don’t love Goodreads, and I quickly explained that I’ve moved to a new website called Smashbomb. So it’s time that I really talk about Smashbomb.
I came across this when it was advertised to me on Facebook, and I wasn’t too sure to begin with. To me, I thought it would be like Litsy – an app for book reviewers which never really took off, but I was so wrong.
The thing with Smashbomb is that it’s for reviewing a lot of things – not just books. You can review:
- Tabletop Games
- Video Games
I really like that it gives you to freedom to review whatever you want, rather than it just being all about books. As a blogger who reviews entertainment as well as books, I find this really useful as it’s somewhere that all my reviews can stay together.
It’s also quite social, as your posts don’t have to necessarily be related to something you are reviewing. I’ve found that there’s a lot more conversations on here about books than Goodreads, and the community is friendlier and more open to chat.
There are regular givaways, which I love, and the ones you can enter are based on how many points you have, which means less spammy entries!! You earn points on Smashbomb by just logging in, and also by contributing to the community. Other users can also award you points for high-quality posts.
I would love for the community on Smashbomb to grow with more book bloggers!
Here’s some useful links for you!
If you already use Smashbomb, let me know and I’ll give you a follow!
