PaperBackSwap Blog

Welcome to our 303rd PaperbackSwap.com Blog Post!

First of all, I bet you’re wondering why we have 4 years worth of Blog Posts and you have never seen any of them before now!   Well, that’s because we’re starting our blog with the archives.   We realized that we had all of this great information in our newsletter archive and thought, our members might like to see how we’ve changed over time.  Take a look at the different milestones to see how the club has grown.  With the blog, it’s now easy to find things like the previous Members of the MonthSite Tips & TricksShipping & USPS info, Dear Librarian and much more.

What can you expect to see here in the future?  We plan to introduce some new features here, including podcasts, book discussions and author interviews, and we’d also like to use the blog to keep members updated on what’s happening in the club in between the monthly newsletters. We will continue “chopping up” the newsletters and posting them here as they do contain a lot of  great information, but we’ll also be able to announce club events (contests, new features, etc) here in a more real-time fashion.

Is there something you’d like us to blog about?  As always we’re open to suggestions!
Richard & the PBS Team

    I’d like to hear more about the changes to the current wishlist. I’m especially curious about how accurate the “last posted” info is – if it’s to be trusted, most of the books on my wishlist have NEVER been posted to PBS.

    I would also love to read about your process for getting the new wishlist up and running – what’s your progress? what decisions are you making, and why? etc.

    Anyway, thanks for starting this – I’m looking forward to reading more about the “inner workings” of PBS!

  2. Looking forward to reading the blog! I crave anything book (and Paperbackswap) related, so I am thrilled to see this new addition.

    Is it possible to post a Tweet archive here also? There is some great info going out in tweets and it would be nice to be able to find everything on pbs site rather than going elsewhere to look it up. Thanks!

  4. Brian says:

    The Blog is a great new addition to my favorite site. You are constantly finding ways to make information about the site more accessible. Thanks for improving on perfection and for doing all that you do to make this the best site on the web.

    Thanks Everyone! We were hoping you would like it.
    Sorry Kathy, I’m not quite sure what you mean. Do you just want to link to our blog on your facebook profile? http://www.blog.paperbackswap.com or install our facebook app into your facebook profile? Just let us know we’ll try to help.

    Anne, I’ll try to find a place to include the twitter archive. Some of it will be duplicate info though as we’re using TwitterFeed to feed the new posts into Twitter. Perhaps an rss feed would work? or would everyone prefer a Recent Tweets Box?

  13. Lenore M. (bookstacks) says:

    Great introduction! I don’t think all the newsletters made it through cyber space to my email so it’ll be great to scroll through this blog to find out what I’ve been missing.

  14. Rhonda (pinkcypress) says:

  17. Maggie S. (maggiemaynj) says:

    WHO wooddaa thunk it!!

  18. Donna M. (Gramdjm) says:

    Oh no, another blog I probably will want to keep up with!! It will be interesting seeing what happens here. Facebook, I’ll check that out but I don’t go there to often.

    I hope everyone is having a good day.
