Book Blogger Appreciation Week Meme

Ok so I have heard alot about the Book Blogger Appreciation Week decided to go check it out. If you are interested there is a link to it in my side bar. Anyways I was over there reading about it and love that fact that they are having an appreciation week for all of us out there who love to read and blog about our ideas and review the books, whether we love them or not. Reading along I found some questions that said if you did not participate last year that you could answer them and seeing as this is the first year that I am going to participate I thought that I should answer them. So here goes....

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
I would have to say that one of the biggest highlights of blogging for me would have to be getting to know all of the bloggers all over the world and how nice most of them are. I never really realized that there were so many of them out there when I started my blog and now I follow so many I cant even keep track of the number. It is so great to be able to see what other people think about the same books that I have read and get their perspective on them.

2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
That would definitely have to be Kristi at The Story Siren. She has always been very helpful with answering any questions that I may have. At first I thought that no one was ever going to know anything about my blog, and I was ready to delete it when I started talking to her asking her different questions and she gave me the confidence to keep going. She told me that it just takes time and effort so I kept going. I have only had my blog since April and I have 17 followers. That may not seem a lot compared to the hundreds that everyone else has but every time I log on and see that that number has gone up it makes me want to keep going cause I know there are people that want to see what I have to say and its all thanks to her. Don't get me wrong there have been others to help but she has help the most.

3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?
I would have to ask what the best thing about participating would have to have been for them. What did they get out of it, whether it be meeting new people or whether it helped them to improve their blog.

I am so excited to see what all is going to happen during BBAW. This is my first time and I hope that its going to be great. So if your interested head on over and fill out their application.

Kristi is a really helpful blogger, I must agree.

The best thing that I got out of BBAW last year was getting to know more bloggers. It's brought me over here today, so I just wanted to say hello!
