Book Blogger Appreciation Week

Amy from My Friend Amy is spearheading the 2nd annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) to be held September 15 – 19, 2009. I don’t really blog only about books, but I read a great number of the book blogs out there and definitely want to vote this year. I “met” a number of book bloggers when I was playing The Game On! Diet earlier in the summer and have been impressed with the high quality of book blogs on the internet.

To register for BBAW and to be able to vote just go to this link!

Following is a short meme for people like me who are new to BBAW:

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?


Getting to know other bloggers through comments and postings from all the different parts of the country has been the highlight for me. Blogging has led to Twitter as well and getting to know people via blogs and Twitter has been nothing but fun!


2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?


Dawn from She Is Too Fond of Books has been very helpful to me, as she is the one who organized the Game On! Diet. She always answers any questions I have (even the dumb ones) and the fact that she walked the Komen 3-Day is very inspiring. Lastly, she writes great reviews.


3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?


I don’t understand completely the Mister Linky list. I think I can vote because I actually did register early, but just saw the Mister Linky list. What is this list exactly? Thanks!


Please help spread the word about this exciting annual book blog event!

    I know! It took me like a year to figure out what was up with Mr. Linky! You put the actual entire address of your specific meme post on there, not just your blog address. Then other people who want to see all the meme answers can click on it and get right to your meme instead of your other non-meme-related posts.

    I agree Dawn is fantastic. Too bad she was a Twinkie on the Diet and not a Ding Dong, but no one can be perfect!!! :–)

    Thanks for clarifying that, Jill! I will go fix my link (if I can)!

    Thanks for reminding everyone that the Ding Dongs won! Oh well, you Ding Dongs were the best of the Snack Cakes . . .

    Well, it’s nice to “meet” you through BBAW. Dawn is great isn’t she? I didn’t do the game on diet but I met her recently at BEA.

    Natasha,

    Thanks for commenting! Nice to “meet” you, too! I looked at your site and am very impressed! You have a very cute family! I like your Library and can’t wait to discuss some on the list later!

    I am happy that you went to BEA and got to meet Dawn!

    Please visit again!
