BBAW: Community

If you haven't heard, it's Book Blogger Appreciation Week and the topic of the day? Community! :D

When I first started blogging, I can't even begin to tell you how helpful I found The Story Siren's Blog Help section and Parajunkee's Book Blogging 101. I'm huge on researching before I do anything and I took a ton of notes before I even began building my blog. If you're a new blogger or unsure about something, chances are, you can find your answer in the two help sections that I've mentioned. If the answer isn't there, never be afraid to ask another blogger! 
Bloggers that can make me smile? Brodie from Eleusinian Mysteries and both Lana & Julie from Bloggers[heart]Books. I love how enthusastic Brodie can be about books that she really loved and the .gifs that Bloggers[heart]Books use every now and again? Both appropriate and hilarious. 

These aren't exactly bloggers that I talk to and they might not know just how much their blogs have helped me out, but I just want to take a moment to let you know about them! If you didn't know about them before, definitely go check them out! :) 


  1. Hi, I am stopping by to visit your blog via the list of posts for Day one

    Please Stop by My Blog if you Like

    I hope you have a very good BBAW-the bloggers you mentioned are all new to me and I will check them out

  2. We all have bloggers who have helped us get started and that is one of the things I love most about this community if you need help someone is always willing to give it. Great post!

  3. It's great to find out there are individuals willing to support you in your early days & remain a constant presence as you develop as a blogger.

  4. I love it that you researched first. Part of me wishes I would have done that, but I was blogging about books before I even knew there was such a thing as the book blogging community. :)

    My list of influential bloggers, if you are interested!

  5. Awww, thank you Kristin!! It makes ME smile that I make YOU smile. And YOU also make ME smile :D <--- see, pretty smile!

    Seriously, I LOVE your blog too. Your reviews are amazing and I know I'm a terrible commenter, but I'm starting to organise my Google Reader into priority folders otherwise I'll never get to all the blogs I love). Anyway, reading this = graet end to my night :)

  6. I wish I would have been organized when I first started blogging. I've gotten organized over the years but I jumped in with both feet and no research!

  7. I loved the Story Siren's blog help as well! Though you were cleverer than I was -- I didn't seek it out until I'd already started my blog. I hope you're having a great BBAW!
