Some of these are obvious, but from responses and questions it became apparent that some guests weren’t taking advantage of these features.

    WOW! I never realized how much info you are giving us and I am blown away. Thank you for all of that… so much cross listing – I feel like a slacker now with my reviews :/

    It is awesome though, thanks!

    Great post Kimberly. Even though I use UBB on Rabid Reads, I still learned about new things. I didn’t realize your icons were links. On RR, we just use the images for visuals. They don’t link to anything. I so love your design. I love that there is so much information and so clean.

  3. Cyn

    I love how organized and informative your blog it! And I’m a big fan of the icon tag. I sort of want to use them but I think I’d be too indecisive picking only a few for each book haha.

  4. Kay

    I didn’t know the series thing! So cool! I always love looking at how many coffee cups and steamy flame you give each book. 😀 This is a great and helpful post.

  5. Jennifer

    LOL I had a future TBR post very similar to this but I deleted last week. I think this post is helpful for the small group of people (or maybe larger?) that doesn’t use UBB. Many do not realize all this stuff is linked when you work to fill everything out. It’s worth the money for it.

  6. Lorna

    I knew some of this but definitely not all of this. Interesting! Thanks for sharing Kimberly!

  7. LeKeisha

    I’m very fond of Goodreads links in posts. I like to click instead of having to go there and type in titles. I love all of your icons as well.

  8. ShootingStarsMag

    I do appreciate all of the various information that you include with your reviews. I always enjoy the Goodreads link so I can add a book if it sounds good.


  9. Leona

    Heck yeah I learned a lot of new things! Heads to my drawing get board to formulate new designsite and plans lol

  10. Whitney

    Great post Kim! I usually click on the author link to see what else that particular author has written and what the fellow blogger thought of them. I always wondered how you added the “click to tweet” under your post — thanks for sharing it was very informative.

  11. Kaela

    Oh my gosh! I love this! It’s true what they say. You learn something new everyday!

  12. Tanya

    Those little icons always get me. I see them a lot and have no idea where they are coming from. Is there an option in UBB for them too?

  13. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Great post! I have been aware of some of these features, but I’m especially excited to know that clicking on the author’s name generates your list.

    The series info is really helpful, too. Thanks for the great post!

  14. Kristin

    My favorite is your tweet button at the end of the review that you recently added – awesome touch!!! The tweets are original and so easy to send 🙂 Why, thank you!! 😉

  15. Sophia Rose

    Oh yes! I like these links and I’ve used a few. My favorite tends to be the ‘add’ button for my wish list on GR. I also like being able to go back and read former reviews for the series if I’m seeing a review for a book mid-series. Very handy stuff!

  16. Pat

    This seems to be a super p;gin. Thanks for sharing this information. Your blog designs very cool!

  17. blodeuedd

    I should so have the about books before my review like you. Cos people never seem to notice it at the end

  18. Karen

    Love this. When I first started reading book blogs, I had no idea about what everything meant.
