The other day on Twitter, a brief conversation with Stephanie (from Stephanie's Confessions of a Book-a-holic
) sparked an interest in me and I have been thinking of it ever since! We have recently seen, via the book blogging world, conventions and gatherings happening all over the country. However, I have yet to hear of one popping up in the Midwest, which just so happens to be where I am currently living. I feel like I am missing out and have decided to see what kind of interest I can generate for a Midwest Book Blogging Party!! If you are interested, please comment and let me know. And, while you are at it, maybe answer a few questions for me . . .
- What would be your ideal location? I'm thinking Chicago or St. Louis!
- When would be your ideal time? I'm thinking sometime in the spring!
- Would you be interested in helping me to organize this event? If so, please leave a valid email address and I will email you!!!
Can't wait to hear from you!! :)
Link away!! I'm all over a Midwest Convention. And since I'm almost exactly half way in between Chicago and St. Louis, it really makes no difference to me. I'm familiar with both!ReplyDelete
I'll do a retweet of this link tomorrow as well!
I miss the midwest. I love living in Seattle, but I miss Michigan. I would totally go if I still lived there...though personally I don't really consider Missouri to be Midwest. It might as well be the South. I mean, have you heard how they talk? ;)ReplyDelete
Stephanie . . . thanks!! I'm so very excited that you are in!! Who knows, maybe it will just be the two of us?!?!ReplyDelete
J.T. . . . It is so funny that you say that!! I come from the West and miss it so much!! I've lived in both Missouri and Michigan the last 4+ years!! With Missouri, I really think it can be split down the middle . . . southern MO I would consider south, but northern and central have a mixture of the two. I guess it really doesn't matter when it comes down to it though . . . I talk funny no matter where I live!! :)
This gets me thinking though . . . maybe we should do St. Louis and catch some of the "Southerners" too?!?!
yeay! I'm in Chicago, so I'd be all for a Chicago get together, I think (depending on when of course.)ReplyDelete
Saturdays would work for me; can't on Sundays.
I send you an email!
Rebecca . . . I just sent you an email back!!!! I would love to do either of these locations!! We need to chat some more!! :)ReplyDelete
