Book Blogger Appreciation Week Meme

In anticipation for the upcoming Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW), I have decided to join in the fun by doing this little meme and answering three questions! There are actually two sets of three questions for this meme . . . one for those that participated last year in the first ever BBAW and those that did not. I fall into the latter category and therefore, will be answering the following questions . . .
  1. What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
  2. What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
  3. What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?

Without further ado, my answers . . .

  1. What has been one of the highlights of blogging for me? As I have mentioned in one of my previous posts, I have actually been blogging for a little over two years; however, it has only been within the last year that I have discovered that an entire book blogging community even existed. If I had been asked this question last year at this time, I would have said the every-so-often comments from my few readers!! However, over the past year, I would have to go more global and say the community in general. Since this discovery, I have found more fellow bookworms to discuss my favorite topic, I have received more comments and more traffic, and have received some great ideas to improve my own site! Who would have known that I could have loved blogging more this year than last?!?!
  2. What blogger has helped me out by answering questions, linking to me, or inspiring me? I truly believe that my biggest shout out should go out to J. Kaye over at J. Kaye's Book Blog. I started my Literary Locals highlight in January of this year. I received a little interest, but it really did not take off as I had hoped. Then, J. Kaye to the rescue!! She discovered my little meme, highlighted it on her site, and I have had overwhelming support this past month. I have already discovered some "locals" and cannot wait to see what the future may bring! Thanks J. Kaye!! :)
  3. What one question do I have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer? Since I missed out on the community for way too long in the beginning, I really don't want to miss out on anything more! How can I be sure not to miss anything? And, if my time becomes limited (which is VERY possible with my many other commitments), what must I make a priority during that week?


  1. I think the group activities are the things you want to partake in the most...the daily topics that we use mister linky for, the interviews, etc. :)

    I hope you enjoy BBAW!

  2. Thanks Amy!! And, thanks for making all this possible!! :)
