Book Blogger Appreciation Week is coming in September. As part of BBAW you can vote on your favorite blogs for cool awards! But nominations close on August 15, so be sure to head over to the BBAW site to register yourself and nominate your favorite blogs.
BBAW was created by Amy at My Friend Amy and she's started a BBAW meme with some questions about blogging. Since this will be my first BBAW, I'm answering the newbie questions.
1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
-Going to ALA and having other bloggers and authors actually know who I am! That is still so surreal to me. I still can't believe people read my blog. Also connecting with other book lovers who understand my need to browse for hours in bookstores and love for libraries and don't think it's weird when I say I love the smell of books or the feel of books pages. Making friends with people who share my interests has been a great part of blogging!
2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
-I was inspired to start my blog thanks to Little Willow. Her reviews and booklists were super helpful when I first started working in a library and I wanted to keep track of what I read the same way. Also, Presenting Lenore and Shooting Stars Mag were some of my first followers/commenters and they kept me motivated to keep blogging because I knew someone was reading. Melissas-Bookshelf has great posts on layouts that have been super helpful!
3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?
-What is the best way to get involved with BBAW (other than nominating blogs) and how can I connect with other bloggers?
