BBAW: Book Blogger Appreciation Week

Posted September 12, 2011 by Jen in Tags: ,

Welcome to BBAW 2011, running from Sept. 12 – 16.  This is the fourth annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week – a time dedicated to celebrate the work book bloggers do and the community we’ve created. Each day there is a different topic for us book bloggers to discuss.  I am going to try to do a little post each day because I do appreciate this wonderful community. I have met so many wonderful people and made dear friends.
Here are this year’s topics:
Monday September 12th:  Community
While the awards are a fun part of BBAW, they can never accurately represent the depth and breadth of diversity in the book blogging community. Today you are encouraged to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique experience for you. They can be your mentors, a blogger that encouraged you to try a different kind of book, opened your eyes to a new issue, made you laugh when you needed it, or left the first comment you ever got on your blog. Stay positive and give back to the people who make the community work for you!
Tuesday September 13th:  Blogger Interviews
This is the day you post the blogger interview swap you did. 
Wednesday September 14th:  Community Part II
The world of book blogging has grown enormously and sometimes it can be hard to find a place. Share your tips for finding and keeping community in book blogging despite the hectic demands made on your time and the overwhelming number of blogs out there. If you’re struggling with finding a community, share your concerns and explain what you’re looking for–this is the week to connect!
Thursday September 15th:  Readers
Book bloggers blog because we love reading. Has book blogging changed the way you read? Have you discovered books you never would have apart from book blogging? How has book blogging affected your book acquisition habits? Have you made new connections with other readers because of book blogging? Choose any one of these topics and share your thoughts today!
Friday September 16th:  Blogging
The world of blogging is continually changing. Share 3 things you are essential tried and true practices for every blogger and 1-3 new trends or tools you’ve adapted recently or would like to in the future.
