From the blogs who reblogged the original promo post, the categories were divided as follows: YA themed-blogs (post 80 - 100% YA) and other YA lovers (posted YA at least once in their last ten posts). Any blogs who hadn’t posted YA in their last 20 posts were culled from the list. (This may have been bad timing, but I had to narrow it down to cut down those reblogging for a free promo.) We have bolded the blogs we recommend heavily.
