It’s that time again! This is the fifth Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) since it started way back in 2008, and I had so much fun doing the daily blogging topics last year that I decided to do them again! Yay!
Today’s topic is about appreciation.
Appreciation! There are no awards this year, but it can still be hard to navigate the huge universe of book blogging. Share with your readers some of the blogs you enjoy reading daily and why.
I always have a hard time with this kind of thing, because a) I hate the feeling of not being on other people’s lists and don’t want to do the same to someone else, and b) after blogging for nearly four years I’ve got a set of blogger friends whose blogs I always read and I always talk about them, and I’ve got myself into a really comfy rut. See last year’s BBAW post, for example. That list? Has not changed for this year.
I haven’t much bothered lately to find new blogs/bloggers to read, which is actually making me feel pretty guilty. I DO try to visit new-to-me bloggers if I see them on Twitter or whatever, but for some reason they haven’t migrated into my daily blog checker routine thingy.
It might have something to do with the fact that humans can only have a certain number of acquaintances before they’re unable to cope or something?1 Or it might be because I’m just lazy and haven’t been reaching out as much as I might have when I was a newer blogger. idk.
Er. What am I trying to say here– I love you all, and I’m sorry I don’t know more of you! So how about this: if we’ve never talked before, or even if you’ve commented here and just want to get to know me better, how about we do a sort of mini info swap thing? Leave an interesting fact about yourself in the comments below, and I’ll come over to your blog and leave an interesting fact about myself. And then maybe we can forge a new friendship! Exciting, eh? Yes.
For my oldie friends: ilu you BESTEST for realz, and I’m sorry I’ve been kind of absent on the commenting front. It’s always an uphill battle, eh? Here’s a little something you can watch to remind yourself I haven’t forgotten you and that I totally want to see you at BEA or whatever if I can actually go like I’m hoping I can.
Tomorrow I’m doing an interview swap with Brittany of The Book Addict’s Guide. Come back then to check it out!
- I totally read about that somewhere; am not just making it up although I can’t find the thing I read right now, so. Er. ↩
