BBAW Questions - I am a Newbie!

Book Blogger Appreciation Week was created by My Friend Amy last year to celebrate book bloggers and promote reading, writing, and everything associated.

This year BBAW will be September 14-18. If you haven't already signed up get over there and put your name down. Then take the time to nominate those blogs you have enjoyed.

Questions to help those of us who are new to connect and those who are experienced to guide us along.

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
Getting involved in such a positive community. I had always wanted to do more than just reading(my friends and family say I have a bit of an addiction) my book. I have loved having others that share my love and aren't bored or annoyed by my desire to talk about my books. And, they have actually read or at least heard of the book. Also, I'm not gonna lie I do like getting free books. I would do it without them though.

2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
Any blogger I have asked has been helpful. I have gotten help from My Friend Amy, Booking Mama, Book Journey, and My Own Little Corner of the World. Presenting Lenore also sent me a great link to her blog which answered questions for new bloggers. And, in addition, the authors and publishers have been so positive and informative.

3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?
What exactly am I supposed to be doing besides voting on bloggers for awards? I feel like I should be doing something more...


  1. Hey girl!
    I'm so glad you're joining in BBAW and I hope you have so much fun!

    At the moment, you don't have to do a single thing. :) If you want to host a giveaway during the week of BBAW, you can start planning that, and there will be more information soon, but I hope you relax and enjoy.
    I also love having so many friends to be bookish with!

  2. This will be my first year at BBAW and I am really looking forward to it! See you there.

  3. It really is an incredibly positive community. I love it :D I hope you enjoy BBAW!

  4. Woohoo!! I'm looking forward to BBAW!!! I'm wondering if I should just a week off work to celebrate (yeah, right, boss man won't go for that!) Thanks for the are too kind!!

  6. I am new too- fun to do this with you! :)

    I too wish I could help out more....decorate the banquet hall, wax the floors....LOL

    I know a lot of work must go into making this happen. Much appreciation to all of those who put in the hours to do this. I am excited to be a part this year!

  7. I think the great community of book bloggers is the highlight for all of us. It got us started and it keeps us going when we're feeling down. This year's BBAW is going to be even better than last year, and last year was awesome!


  8. Love the header for your blog : D The BBAW is even bigger than last year, can't wait till next week!
