South Asian Review Database – Now on Facebook

A few months ago, I received a request from a reader to put the South Asian Review Database on Facebook so that those avid readers who aren’t bloggers and don’t really follow blogs could still use it as a resource. I thought this was a great idea, but of course, it’s taken me some time to implement it. I’m happy to say, though, that I’ve finally created a Facebook fan page for the South Asian Review Database! The database itself is still hosted at my blog, of course, but it contains links to the database, and I hope to post links from the database on the fan page.

If you are on Facebook and are a fan of the database, please “Like” it! Also, I’d love it if you would spread the word to your non-blogging friends who might be interested in the database.

If you are a blogger, please add your links to the database if you are interested – the more reviews it contains, the better of a resource it becomes!

Introducing the South Asian Review Database!

I am very excited to unveil something I’ve been thinking about for the last few months and working on for the past week – the South Asian Review Database.  My vision has been a one-stop shop for South Asian author reviews from across the blogosphere – I hope you can help me with it!

You can link up your own reviews (and I really hope you do!), and whenever I come across a review of a South Asian author’s book, I’ll ask the blogger if I can link it up.  The main review database page has general guidelines for linking your reviews.  You don’t have to be a participant in the South Asian Author Challenge to link up your reviews, though it will be the place for participants to link up their reviews going forward.  If you’ve linked up a review to the South Asian Author Challenge as of this morning, it’s been transferred to the new database.

I hope you’ll all explore, link up your reviews, and spread the word so others will link theirs up as well!  I’d love for this database to be as comprehensive as possible!

I will go through this Linky periodically and add links to the proper pages.  This creates a streamlined browsing experience for those of you looking for reviews.  Links will be entered into the database in the order they were entered into the Linky.
