Armchair BEA: Day Five: The Future of Book Blogging



I can't believe the event is in it's final day. It really went by so fast and I feel like I made some new and wonderful connections.
Thank you to the new followers! You know you help make this blog a cool place, at least for me. I appreciate every one of you.

I thought some of the previous day's themes were tough, but today's takes the cake. I don't have a blog "vision". I just write what I know, which sometimes might not be much, and keep it as real as possible without being offensive. Sometimes wires get crossed in good old web-land, but for the most part it's one of the most rewarding things I do. The people make it all worthwhile, even when we don't see eye-to-eye.

Now I'm definitely no expert in blogging, so no "tips" will come out of me. I can only say be you. No one is interested in a carbon copy, let your personality come through in your writing... even if your a cynical, sarcastic oddball like me.

I hope you've all had a great BEA and Armchair BEA. I hope to one day join you in NYC and be part of the festivities and fun, until then I bid you adieu and wish you many days of happy reading and writing!

  3. Yes, being yourself is important, perhaps THE most important thing. It's nice to visit all of the participants in this event.

  7. I think your post is an important reminder that it's not always necessary to have a plan. I'm quite ambitious and want to build my blog up, but I'm sure not everyone wants that. And that's okay too! Everyone is different and that's what makes all the blogs so different and interesting! :)

  9. I was at BEA, but after reading some of the A-BEA posts, I can tell you that you guys did something that I didn't do -- have some thought-provoking conversations about blogging. (Not complaining -- I did get to meet a lot of amazing people.)

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…

Michael kills a father and his son who stumble upon the crashed bus on the road, and steals their car. The following day, on Halloween, Michael resumes his killing spree, k…
