- #DiverseBookBloggers are not white, straight, cisgendered, able-bodied bloggers who write predominantly about authors of that same description.
- They ideally blog about #ownvoices authors and advocate diverse reading habits for all. This includes white bloggers who write about diverse literature regularly.
- They find themselves in the LGBTQ+ spectrum or are people with disabilities and blog about books that represent them when possible.
- The hashtag more generally includes any person who is LGBTQIA+, a person of color, or a person with a disability who also is a book blogger. But diverse reading is preferred.
