Today's Armchair BEA topic is blogging tips and I really only have one or two thoughts on this. Go to the Armchair BEA site for more extensive advice :)
I "attended" the twitter party last night and boy was it crazy! One thing I noticed being RTed over and over was something @BookaliciousPam said (and of course I can't find it now). Essentially, book bloggers sometimes feel like they HAVE to post. But we don't. If you don't want to or don't feel like it, don't!! It's much easier (for me) to say than to follow through. I hate missing more than a day or two, but sometimes you just gotta take a break. And honestly, this is the best and only piece of advice I have for finding balance in life and blogging: to remember that blogging really isn't my life. Even though it feels like it sometimes :)
I would like to talk about what memes and blogging events you think are the best. The only one I regularly do is Tween Tuesday from GreenBeanTeenQueen and I plan to continue that. I like having a chance to focus on non-YA books for a change. Also, I like Retro Friday Reviews from Angieville, though I've been anything but consistent. I think having events/memes that focus on stuff I don't regularly review or talk about is good for me. It helps keep the content fresh and interesting. For the most part, I've kind of done my own events like Listless Monday, I Actually NEED It, Name that Book, Double Features, Cover Sillies, and Libraries Around the World.
Are there events out there that you think I should totally be participating in? What are your favorites?
If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage
