Today's BBAW topic is to recap our week and predict our future in blogging.
First off all, I've been a little more laid back this BBAW then in previous years. I've been a little less click happy with regard to adding to the reader. Which kind of makes me sad because I'm sure there's lots of blogs out there that I would love and have sort of skimmed over in my hurry. Hopefully, they'll end up on my radar eventually anyway!
But it's been fun as it always is! Reading the interviews and meeting new bloggers. Seeing what new genres we've encouraged each other to read this year. And adding to the pile with all the great recommendations. Oh, and the gazillon giveaways! Did you enter lots? I entered only a few really, but yeah, there's some great ones out there! (My giveaway lasts until Sunday night, so you still have time if you missed it.)
Having said all that, I must admit that BBAW and other events like it have another strange side affect. It makes me feel like a very very small fish in a very very big sea. Once that happens, lots of insecurities float to the surface and I have to battle them down. I hate it when that happens. But on the other hand, all the praise and high fiving and back slapping and "way to go"s are wonderful and happy and so very positive that you can't help but be proud to be part of it all, small or not.
I really do enjoy this week of book blogging love and think it's a blast!
And now for my goals. Hmmmm..... what are my goals?
1. Stop with that above mentioned insecurity already. Sheesh. Unnecessary!
2. I hereby vow to comment more! (Is it okay if my comments are, perhaps, a bit on the brainless side?)
3. Don't stop...
4. I would like to do more enthusiastic reviews. (In other words, I want more of you blaming me for finding your favorite books!)
5. And finally, continue to put more effort into my little features. Add to my lists! Be brave and email more authors to send me a list!
So, that's about where I stand on my future... how about you?
And a big hip hip hooray to all those involved in making this week happen! It blows me away the effort that's involved. You are all extremely appreciated!
