Blogger Blog Tour - Joyfully Jay

Joyfully Jay

Hi there! Thank you so much to R.J. for inviting me here today to talk more about my blog, Joyfully Jay

What is Joyfully Jay?
Joyfully Jay is primarily a m/m romance review blog, although we also cover some f/f, m/m/f, and other GBLT combinations. We typically run 4-5 posts a day, Monday through Friday. The first post of the day is almost always a guest spot from an author or publisher, followed by 3-4 reviews a day. I am so excited that we are celebrating out 3 year anniversary in September! The blog has grown a lot from when it was just me talking about books to where we are now.

Why did you start Joyfully Jay?
I started the blog mostly because I love to talk about books. I was commenting a lot on other blogs, but I really wanted to be able to share my thoughts in more depth so I decided to start my own. At the time, there were very few m/m blogs so I was sort of figuring out things as I went along. Now my favorite thing is to read the comments and chat with readers about books they like (or don't like). There is nothing like the thrill of reading a fabulous book and getting to share it with others!

Who are the Joyfully Jay reviewers?
I am so thrilled to have seven fabulous reviewers reading and writing for Joyfully Jay. In addition to me, we have Crissy, Jason, Michelle, Kris, Sammy, Amy, and Angi. If you want to know a little more about us, you can check us out on the About Us page.

What are some cool things I can find on Joyfully Jay?
Well, as I said, we have reviews and guest posts pretty much every day of the week. We also have some fun features and things you can explore on the blog. Here are some highlights:
How can I find book reviews on your blog?
Check out our Reviews tab on the red menu bar on the blog. There you can find Reviews by Rating, Reviews by Genre, and Reviews by Reviewer.

Where else can I find you online? 
I am on Twitter at @jayhjay432 and on Facebook as Joyfully Jay. We also have a blog page on Facebook called Joyfully Jay Reviews. You can find me on Goodreads as JayhJay or the blog page as Joyfully Jay. You can get our blog feed here and subscribe to updates by email here.

Anything else?
Thanks so much to R.J. for having me here today! I am so glad to get to meet you all and hope you will stop by the blog to have some fun with us!  


As a thank you for checking us out and reading my post today, I am giving away the winner's choice of any book from one of our Favorites lists.
